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.

    Gentlemen,

    I thought that the C&J offerings for BB are so good that they deserve their own dedicated thread.

    Let me do the first honors:

    I wish these came out as dark in real life as they do on the website. To me they look lighter than color #8.

    After being an Alden enthusiast for awhile now, I actually enjoy the different variations between makers.

    The color of these is exactly why I bought them.

    They are not quite as light indoors as pictured above.

    Do any of you men have these beauties here:

    Perhaps you could post a few pics of these on the hoof and in the wild?

    I'm not really a boot guy, and I'm definitely not a "spend 1000.00 on a single pair of shoes" guy, but these haunt my dreams. They get EVERYTHING right.

    That's why you stake them out for months until you get a 40% off voucher....

    That gif MADE your comment!
    I'd like to see more peoples thoughts/experiences on the shell Marlow SWB lookalike C&J makes for BB now. Unless they're side by side, I feel like you can't tell the difference, and with the lower price of the BB version, it seems like they'd be a sure thing.

    I feel like someone in the C&,J, C&J for RL, or Brooks Brothers thread has posted pictures of them in the wild.

    There are several notable differences.

    1. The Last. The RL version is on the 325 and the BB the 240.
    2. The Medallion.
    3. The Welt. The RL version is Storm while the BB version is Flat.

    So, yes. They are the same but different.

    I have not decided which one I like more. I own the RL and am thinking about koping the BB as well...

    @Watchman1 You are quite welcome, sir. They are working out pretty well so far. The fit is not the best (a little big in the heel) but they work and I love the shade of brown shell. I usually like a storm welt but the flat welt works out great because I wear them for a more "business" business casual look. Plus if I'm really wearing casual clothes I'm pretty much wearing boots. Any questions, I will be happy to try to answer.

    Very Well.

    Did you go with your Brannock size?

    Thanks in advance!

    I got them in 8D. 8.5D was too big. I guess 8D is my Brannock, It's been a long time since I've been measured and I feel like my feet are getting bigger (fatter?). I wear 8D in most AE, 8D in Lindrick, Gianni. 7.5 UK in Carmina Simpson. 7 UK in Coniston (could have gotten 7.5 UK since I wear thicker socks). I forget if I take 7 or 7.5 UK in Trickers 4497. 7.5 Alden Van last.

    Sorry, I'm not as good at this as most of you guys. Not "dialed in" per se. Hope this helps!

    Very interesting. I can't put my finger on it, but they look different on foot than the Marlows. They do look great though, beautiful color!
