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.

    Lubbock and jeans.

    I have been wearing them to the dog park to get them nice and beat/scratched up. That is my accelerated patina method.

    Did you end up going to see them and buying anything? If so, pictures please! I forgot about these also, just FYI... http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-allen-edmonds-stewart-plaintoe-oxford-shoes~242204_-1.html

    These are sort of my foul weather shoes along with my Bayfields - I rarely wear these when it isn't raining. They have held up remarkably well considering this.

    I love the look, though I was wondering if they're a little loose in the width on you. Are they bowing out in the middle there?

    Just heard through the grapevine that AE is opening a retail store in Center City Philadelphia this winter, on Walnut Street. Very cool news.

    Polished 'em with Brown Kiwi. OR, ruined them, in StyleForum's opinion; receive the opposite reaction in person. Either way doesn't much matter to me as these are just beater shoes [​IMG]

    ...you should work on that a little more.

    Some more applications and some clean up work and it will eventually even out and not look quite so jarring.

    Is that a Bourbon McAllister? I didn't know they were doing the McAllister in Bourbon.

    Here are a couple of Bourbon comparison shots. I apologize for the really bad cell phone pics, but it gives you an idea of the color.

    I think the description is off on these. I don't see any Strands and the middle shoe looks the same in both pictures.

    I will stick with brown over walnut and bourbon. They are just too light for me and with my dark complexion just don't look good on me IMO.
