    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 was in an AE store the other day and took a look at all of them as well. I agree that the Franciscan and Sapienza actually have a good look to them in person. I think they have the potential to be successful shoes. Also, I was guilty of bashing the Banchory a few weeks back when it was first posted on their website. I have to say, in person, it isn't bad at all. It is pretty much just a gunboat made from Neumok leathers. I still think the pictures online make it look pretty cheap and ugly, but in person I think it would appeal to many Neumok lovers.

    Did you try Larrimor's? I know they also have some AEs in stock if you're looking to get the right fit. They have an AE trunk sale coming up soon (March 14-17), but I don't know the details of what will be promoted (at the 1 PNC location).

    Mexicutioner, I have seen the Stewarts and am considering them. However, I really want a dirty buck and a navy suede wingtip.

    Thanks for the suggestion to you and all others who have chimed in.

    Oddly, this thread has become the only thing I check on the internet daily. It's an interesting thing how you can feel a relationship to a group of people you only know through screenames and pictures of their feet.

    What color of polish wax would I use for my walnut strands? For Kiwi, would I use mid-tan or Tan or neutral? For AE wax, neutral? I'm lost.

    AE sells their Premium shoe polish in walnut color, so that probably should be the default choice.

    I just finished polishing a pair of walnut Strands for my brother (who owns several pairs of AE's but NEVER do any maintenance) using some Saphir shoe cream in the light brown color that I have and I thought it worked very well.

    I did try larimor's. They don't have the right size to try on..I tried an 8.5 D McTavish, which was great in the heel, but too tight across the ball of my foot. So far gordons is the only place that at least has a 8.5 E in the park ave, which I can try for a aproximate fit..I will call little's and see if they have anything in my size to try..

    Continuing on this thread, has anyone actually measured the widest part of the shoe to to compare it to another brand? I would probably need a shoe around 4 1/4 to 4/12 inches wide at the widest part of the shoe. What would this correlate to in width size? I do know that AE's are made 1/8 inch larger per width increase.

    I have been thinking about adding the navy to my collection (because I too failed to jump on the blue suede players) and was curious on how these look in person. Great to hear this an option.

    Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but the Shoe Bank is currently having a 2 for $250 sale on discontinued models.
