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.

    Yeah, that's my point. It's a lot easier for me to try them on than if they were an AE offering, as AE's nearest store takes an hour or two (depending on traffic) to visit.

    I would have my feet in a pair SO fast. You rock them good.


    You rock those good too, they look well loved. There's been a pair of Bocas in my size in the Shoe Bank right now that I've been very tempted to get. I just can't see myself wearing chisel toes with any of my outfits. But I can't deny the 333 is a cool looking last.

    I love my Bleeckers! So happy that Earl talked me into the dark chili over the brown. Definitely my most versatile pair of AEs, replacing my Kennies.

    Always loved the look of the bleecker street. Unfortunately, they never made them in my width (2e)

    Those pants almost look poplin in the pic. I'm sitting here thinking, "Unless this guy lives in Brazil, no way. It was 27 degrees in Mississippi this morning."

    Although some bad pictures were viewed here a few weeks ago, I thought I would share some new pictures of the Belmont in shark skin. The Belmont is a split toe blucher on the 8 last and can be found in the 2002 AE catalog in black and brown. The leather has a medium stiffness and the shoes have a double oak sole. Yes, the leather is as textured as it appears in the pictures. The sole, plus the "tough as nails" reputation of shark, indicate these shoes will last a very long time. They are definitely a statement shoe that I plan to wear with nice slacks and a sport coat. Discuss.

    I kinda think the jacket has to be velvet, preferably crushed. And also, purple.

    In the words of Bo Jackson on the AT&T commercials - that's a strong shoe. Chris

    When does the Shoe Bank sale start? Today? I've been eyeing a pair of Bourbon Daltons.

    If it did, it seems to be one of those new fangled sales where nothing is discounted.

    I'm a 8.5E in the 5 last. I purchased a Brooks Brothers 8.5E MacNeil 7 and it was too tight. Do the BB versions fit any different than the AE models? Wanted to order some MacNeils and wondered whether to size up, nowhere near me sells AE.

    Thanks!

    Anyone have pics of the steen in action? Got them half-off brand new and they fit great but I normally don't wear slip ons for BCD. They just don't look right with dress slacks and I won't wear them with jeans. Chinos for sure, but again I'd like to see some pics. TIA

    Brooks Brothers versions have extra insoles "for comfort". The insoles make them a tad tighter, usually. Not sure if it is equivalent to adding a width.
