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.

    I own shell versions of the Patriot and LHS (Brooks Brothers unlined version). I find the build quality to be about the same for both (pretty good), but where the LHS is close to a perfect fit for me at size 8.5D (general consensus is to size down 0.5 on Van last), the Patriot in 9D is a little tight across the instep. It does fit as well as the LHS everywhere else, and I suspect that non-shell versions of the Patriot would loosen up more around the instep.

    I would suggest trying the Patriot. In my opinion, if it works for your feet, there really isn't a great reason to insist on getting the LHS.

    Side by side (Left = LHS, Right = Patriot):

    Wearing my white spiaggias with chambray pants and purple gingham shirt.
    My wife told me I needed white wingtips, I was suspect but nonetheless pulled the trigger in a pair of seconds and don't regret the purchase.

    They also look great with shorts.

    Well...I was all set to get my sizing down and start getting on lists, but it looks like I'm about to loose my job this week, so I decided to hold off with the whole idea. Fortunately I have two interviews lined up next week just in case, and the prospects for each look good. :) So maybe I'll get back on board with the whole thing by the end of the season, but I'm just a little spooked from the big ticket purchases right now.

    That is really going to depend on who you ask and what you mean by casually. With chinos and an oxford shirt, maybe. With chinos and a T-Shirt, no. I wouldn't wear them in either scenario, though, personally.

    Could work but to me that isn't casual.

    Casual would be like a Mctavish or Neumok or even the Kenilworth

    Nice score! :fonz:

    Usually the last number of the 4 digit model number indicates the last of the shoe, however they stopped exclusively doing this a couple years ago after running out of model numbers.

    Actually the Kenwood in 8D was a perfect fit on me, I really wish I could have found a pair in burgundy shell during the clearance 2 for $299 sale. I would have easily grabbed a pair along with the Greyson for those prices.


    Thanks for the side by side!

    I spoke with Riverhead about 10 min ago. They honored the price.

    I have the Patriot in burgundy shell and suede. I love both. The suede feels an little more deconstructed than the shell, but it's also a much more pliable material. The Patriot fits me so well I ordered a third pair in black shark.

    Quote:To the OP I would try calling another store. Since they all pull from the same system. It helps to have a history with a store but if your normal one won't do then then you have to branch out. With the recent sales $299 shell seems expensive.

    Would love some pics if you have a pair in the snuff suede. I cannot seem to find many pics of them in the wild.

    I'm weak, I just ordered too. The woman at the Jeffersonville store said the same thing. They are honoring it today, but tomorrow it goes back up.
