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,

    Last few years, I have been an avid shopper at DSWs, living on $50-70 DSW bargains for work shoes including "dress shoes". These included casual loafers, plain & boring Ecco's and giant square toes by Kenneth Cole (Yes, that bad [​IMG]).

    Frequenting SF, I have learned that Allen Edmonds is a shoe brand that holds its worth and is a good investment in appearance and comfort. My needs are to find atleast 1 black and 1 brown pair(s) that can go business casual or suit/tie. I did visit an AE store last week and liked the McAllister (brown) and New Orleans (black). Both seemed nice looking shoes and may be a good start for building a new wardrobe. I did try the PA as well and although it may be a solid shoe, I don't need something quite that conservative right now.
    What are the opinions of folks on these two shoes? How do you guys perceive them in appearance, workmanship, comfort etc? Appreciate the input.
