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.

    Cheers,

    ^ Don't be ridiculous. Have you ever seen a border collie wearing captoes? He clearly means an Australian shepherd.

    If you need black captoes, call Tuttle and order the Cheaneys for $180

    tuttlecatalog.com

    Go to the Clearance section, then go to shoes, then look for Cheaney Captoe

    While I like a bunch of stuff LE does (khakis, knit ties, etc.), after trying a pair of dirty bucks from them over the summer (which I had to return because they were shoddily made and uncomfortable) I have concluded that shoes aren't really their strong suit. The LE shoes you were looking at were probably made in China.

    That's what the AS stands for, right?

    Depends. Alfred Sargent has made a few models for Lands' End in recent past.

    Example: the Gibson and chukkas that made quite a few people stay up all night just last year.
