    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.

    dude, stop. Courageously? We are not headed into combat. We are discussing dress shoes on an internet forum. There is precisely zero courage needed.

    Nevertheless, the toe cap looks bad, I said as much. could it have been more delicate? sure...but we are all big boys here, no?

    1) Classic buck shoe (in fact, more suede options in general)
    2) More 8-last options
    3) Cap toe boot with a rubber sole (i.e. Bayfield)
    4) A website for the shoebank where you can run searches for available models.

    What are people's thoughts on the Franciscan? I remember seeing a while back that someone has seen it in person? I've been wanting a monk strap for a while, but I can't decide based off the one grainy picture I've see of it if it's worth pulling the trigger on or if I should wait for (and spend the extra money on) the monk from the Independence line.

    I saw it at an AE store. It was pretty ugly. The toe is very boxy.

    Since others are offering suggestions: shortwing blucher. Preferably in the same walnut grain as the MacNeil.

    Just purchased my first AE (Dalton in Chocolate) the other day, wore them over the weekend and today to work. Absolutely love them. Drooled over them for about three months before making the purchase. Anyone have any suggestions for shoe trees for these? Maybe the Woodlore Boot Shoe Tree?

    Optodoc,

    I see a chestnut listed as an option but no walnut. Is this the color you are referring to?

    I wonder if I hold out long enough the grey cloud Dalton's will drop some more!

    I have a couple of the Woodlore boot shoe trees and I wouldn't suggest them. Although the tree rises up high nicely, they are not wide enough for Daltons. I have two pairs of Daltons as well as the Long Branch and for me, the Woodlore Epic trees are the best. You also can't go wrong with the AE full-toe trees (or Jos. A. Bank, which are the same thing).

    Saw a black Mora in size 9D at my local outlet the other day. It was a second and I think was priced at $129.00. It is the Ball & Buck for AE brand, they tried to find an 8 or 8.5D for me in brown but to no avail.

    Good list.

    I will add a request for more non-wingtip boot options in general. Especially in shell. And if shell is MTO anyway, how about increasing the make-up options, colors, styles, etc.

    As for trees for the Daltons, I have a new pair of Dalton's and am using new pair of full-toe AE trees, that fit perfectly. My Daltons are 12D, and trees are XL. For what it's worth...

    For those who assisted me - thanks, and for those who haven't done so yet, I emailed the shoebank people (jville@allenedmonds.com) yesterday, and very quickly got a reply, with a spreadsheet over 450 lines long. I had asked for availability in the two sizes I fit - depending on last. I can't believe how extensive it is! Now I have to choose - many many new pairs of shoes, or keep the wife!?

    Any opinions on the Verona? Looking for a basic black loafer and too young for tassels.

    That's unfortunate. Guess I'll be waiting.
