    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 agree that the bar lacing looks nicer - it's just too much effort to do the unnatural things one needs to do on shoes with odd numbers of eyelets, IMO.

    Just got my new McAllisters today from Amazon. Got them when Amazon had 30% off, worked out to just over $200 I think.

    Where do you guys find your AE's at? The only prices I seem to find are $300-400. I see people discussing how they bought theirs for $150-250.

    As an update to my Amok issues, I returned them to the Boston store today. The crew there was great, even going to the point of trying to locate pairs that looked like the ones on the web (without me asking them to do it). I have my doubts that they'll be able to track any down, but I really appreciated the effort. Regardless of what the shoes might look like, AE does have pretty good customer service.

    I also received the pair of Dalton seconds I ordered. Great boot at that price! Although, I think they're trying a little too hard with the pinky-red pull tab and lining.

    Have to keep an eye out, there was multiple posts on this thread alone about the recent AE sales. There were many, Endless.com, Amazon.com, AE Outlets. Now you might have to wait for the Nordstrom anniversary sale next year, or contact SF member Allaboutshoes (he has an Allen Edmonds Mega Thread you can look into).

    About lacing - The Fifth Avenues have an even number of laces, so I tried the bar lacing because it looks neater. However, I can confirm what someone else asked - it does make it harder to tigthen the laces. I'm going to change it to the old cross method I learnt when I was but a wee lad.

    You know, based on what i have heard and read, i dogged a bullet with the Amok. Even my Allen Edmonds SA was reluctant to show interest in their Amok model (which he didn't even carry in his store). There is always the Malvern...

    Call one of the outlets. They still have the 300 for 2 on the seconds. Fantastic deal for fifths and strand IMO

    The only problem I have is I wear a size 6. From my experience all the shoes my size are gone by the time sales come along. [​IMG]

    Was anyone able to take advantage of the Bradley/Westchester shell $250 deal? I was thinking about it again and just checked the AE webisite, and it no longer has the shells listed at $250. They're now $550. Must have been a glitch.

    ^^ I'll find out in a while...... on the Bradley. Order seemed to have gone through, but the site crashed, then my details seem to have vanished. An agent confirmed my order number, but not the price....

    That's what I'm talkin' about. Great looking shoe in that color. The walnut really works on this, the Player's shoe, and my favorite, the pebble grain MacNeil!

    I think it was a glitch. The calf version are on sale for $250. Nice score if the come through.

    Good luck. In my experience, AE has outstanding customer service, so I'd be surprised if they didn't honor the price, even if it was an error.

    Here's the Westchester in walnut. My WB's a bit off here, but the color is pretty close.
