1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    For those that aren't familiar with all the Brooks Brothers (BB) and Ralph Lauren (RL) models, here are the ones I know of. I've linked to their respective websites if possible. Feel free to let me know of any additions or corrections and I can try to keep it up-to-date. Also, if you know which last a given RL model is on, let me know and I'll add it. I'm not positive about the links with question marks; please let me know if you can confirm.

    Brooks Brothers (differences usually include Poron insole, combination outsole, and branding):

    Ralph Lauren:

    Thinking about getting the brogue suede Patriots on the 2/$299 sale. Anyone have them? Like them? Hate them? Probably wear mostly with khakis at work.

    The Shoe Bank sale couldn't come soon enough. Just checked the AE site and they increased the prices by $20 for the Timeless collection. I guess they increased the prices a day early?

    The Westchester is so...blah...but if you've always-wanted-but-couldn't-afford shell and wear 8.5 or 9 D now's your chance.

    You mean like these? [​IMG]

    I agree the Bayfield can handle a lot, one of the reasons I own 3 pair of them.

    Hope the Fall brings something back in the way of a boot that is decent. Last couple of years we have gone through this around the same time of the year but seems like more and more classics and great styles are gone now. Going through the shoebank website I can't seem to get excited over any offerings in my size for either shoes or boots.

    $250 for a DR made chukka? Yikes.

    I wish they would reintroduce an unlined normal desert boot in the fall. For some reason I never saw the appeal of them until the Mojaves were all gone (and the Amok doesn't fit me well).

    Clark's won't make them in wide, and neither will Rancourt. And I'm not dropping $500 on the Alden...

    On another note, I see that they've introduced "dark chili" as a color. I wonder if this is a new shade, or if they've simply added more cayenne, cinnamon, or dark chocolate to the existing chili.

    Two for $299 applies to shell if you use the password, "Paul, said to make me a deal." Just got shell Dundees and Daltons for $299!

    Can this be serious? Two for $299 for shell + non-closeout style?

    Methinks you're right and a test to see how many people call and keep repeating, "Paul, said to make me a deal" while the puzzled SA keeps repeating, "I have no clue what you are talking about." I see at least one poster took the bait.

    Ouch, New Daltons are $425 now. Thats a $25 jump.

    Seems an increase hasn't made it to 2nds yet.

    If you were on the fence about Stands, as I am, You have till Monday since the Nordstrom price is still the same. Trying to talk myself out of it.

    NS, neither Dalton nor Dundee are a closeout style so technically, they should not be a part of the 2 for $299 sale. I wouldn't even bother calling AE about this.
