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.

    GQ trend follower alert!


    Yes, the insoles on brooks brothers are more cushioned and comfortable. Well worth the small premium IMO.

    Haha, Nah. I don't read GQ. I first saw Lino Ieluzzi wear them unbuckled and though it looked cool!

    You got double lucky purchasing them plus getting almost $100 off, hope you bought a lottery ticket too! I purchased my walnut shell Strands on the last day not knowing that it was the last chance to get them. Very often I think how lucky I was to get them when I put them on. I love my #8 shell Dundee's and wore them again today. I hope you enjoy yours as well.

    Nice boot and great price. I agree AE CS and quality is hard to beat and which is one of the reasons why I keep going back to them. I have the Bayfield in CXL and black calf, along with the Cascade and like them all for really bad winter weather. I regret not picking the North Platte when it was available.

    Your posts were a big part of me choosing AE for boots. I do a lot of hunting, fishing, hiking, shooting etc and see you do too. I figure if they work for you they will for me as well. I'm really looking forward to breaking them in.

    The Delrays are $250 actually :)

    I suppose it is just a personal choice, but i receive excellent service from my SA's at my local store, so i shop with them.

    Plenty of times, i have received discounts on shoes when there was no sale, aside from getting freebies from time to time.

    $275 when you factor in sales tax in a town with 10% sales tax like Chicago. I guess it comes down to the fact that I get that same customer service by calling AE directly, regardless of whether I purchased the shoes at Nordstrom or Amazon. AE has always done right by me, which is why I'm loyal to the brand. Would I pay a few extra bucks to help out the local store, sure. An extra $75 on a shoe I can get for $200 elsewhere? No.

    I`m going to an AE store later this week to get some fifth avenues. If the sizing isn`t so finicky, I would have bought them online :/

    I haven't bought a pair of AE since my early days on SF. I was walking pass their store and I saw their sale sign. So I went in and tried on some shoes. The Dalton and Neumok (red) really caught my eyes.

    I end up buying the tan (walnut?) Dalton. Now if I think about it, I don't remember the last time I bought a pair of shoes in store. I will snap some pics later.

    Black shoes don't usually get much love on SF, but I saphired my PAs tonight, and I have to say that nothing really shines up like a black shoe. Pics with and without flash

    Very nice shine. Agreed, we are a little preoccupied with our browns and burgundys on here, but gotta love the simple sophisticated style of a black Park Ave.
    I have a pair of black calf Hale that should see more action as they have a similar look.

    I'm having a hard time deciding between the Delray and the Le Salle. Both are so similar. The Delray model is usually priced higher, but has a steeper discount for the sale, so they both come out to the same. Does anyone have any opinions one way or the other?

    Agreed, awhile back someone posted a picture of it with his AE walnut shoes, looks like a perfect match. I have been considering getting one too.

    I think we've discussed this a few times on the forum. I own both the Delrays and the LaSalle. I agree that the pictures make them look very similar, and probably most casual onlookers wouldn't notice huge differences.

    That said, I like the Delrays a good bit more. The lines/stitching seem better for the Delrays. I made a post with pics of both a few months back, I'll see if I can dig it up.

    Overall, I prefer the Delrays and would pick them before the LaSalle every time unless the LaSalles were significantly cheaper (which is not the case with the current sale).
