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,

    This shell stuff is quite interesting. I have a small but growing collection of shell and even though I only have officially 3 colors (brown shell and burgundy shell from AE and cognac shell from Carmina), none of my shells are of the same color IRL.

    Left to right: brown jefferson, brown bayfield, cognac 80092, burgundy grayson, burgundy leeds, burgundy strands

    Even with the $ spanking the €, I'm glad my feet are too narrow for Carmina... because I would own far too many balmoral boots like that. Those're gorgeous.

    My four pairs of burgundy shell all display similar variance. Nice family photo!

    Maiden voyage of my new MacNeils...

    Or not... Apparently I cant upload images right now for some reason. Almost certainly operator error. It's fine, you all know what they look like anyway :)

    Nice collection, and I agree that the different shades of shell is part of my obsession with it. Those brown shell bayfields are really nice, and the burgundy leeds are really growing on me... [​IMG]

    Thanks! You're right. It's sooo difficult for me to resist because the price is soooo good right now and the Carmina lasts work for my wife high instep feet.

    The bayfields are really nice. They are quite light compared to my brown Jeffersons. My abortive would be my Graysons though. The color is almost like #4.

    Anyone else notice that the shoebank stock image of the Rogues in Walnut has tiger striping?

    i had some minor striping on my shakers, but after a few rounds of Renovateur, it disappeared, along with most of the rest of the burnishing. :(

    In AE's defense, after I posted a review of the Strand complaining about the endless supply of tiger-striped Dark Chili Strands, e-service offered to make me a new pair and to ensure that they do not have any striping. I'll know in four weeks...

    AE does have excellent customer service, and I am glad that they are making this right. I just hope they can figure out why the striping is happening - I never saw it on Walnut before the last year or so...

    I love mine. I had them custom-made with single leather soles and orange tap soles.

    Unfortunately, CS is not a substitute for QC. There's a reason why almost every firm in the world would like to keep their quality failures internal - AE, on the other hand, seems to view their customers as something of an outsourced QC department.

    In my experience, the 333 last runs longer
