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.

    No way. I would never pay $700+ for Wolverine or Allen Edmonds (they make it). I'd go for the Alden x J.Crew cap-toed boot instead: http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/AldenForJCrew/PRDOVR~20853/20853.jsp With coupons (they work sometimes, despite J.Crew's claims to the contrary), you can get a decent amount off.

    I like it as well. Apparently, not a lot of people do. Plenty in stock despite the sale.

    Richard, I could see myself wearing it to dinner/bar with jeans or chinos or even carhartts after a day ice climbing or skiing or any winter outdoor activity for that matter. To me it looks comfy and warm with the right amount of ruggedness.

    IMO they are 2 totally different boots, starting with the color. The J.Crew captoe's are color 8 while the 744's are a rich dark brown. I think at first glance the J Crew's appear a bit more dressy but I have seen pics of the 744's with a pin stripe suit and they look stunning! I think both boots are fantastic. Having said that I sure would have liked to get my hands on the Madison in brown and/or black.

    Whoops, didn't realize the 744 wasn't #8, also. Is Allen Edmonds making the Madison? I believe they're making the 744 for Wolverine.

    The Madison was made by Julian im fairly certain.
    The Madison and 744 both have a workboot aesthetic, whereas the Alden boot is much more of a dress shoe silhouette. So i dont really think one is comparable to the other except for the fact theyre both cordovan.

    More boot love. Just got black Murdoch engineers too. The leather is way more stiff than the brown ones, especially up top.

    somehow i found the peacoat on sale in store in Michigan... i don't think its actually supposed to be on sale.

    what do you guys think of the fit? The wool is nice, not as heavy as the $690 peacoat but more refined. Buttons are interesting, but very oxidized.

    late to the party eh?

    RRL goes on sale during private sale events (currently one on-going), end of season close outs, Pink Pony Event (just passed), end of holiday...

    Certain outlets (like mostly in Florida) seem to get stock. Certain Barney's will carry them, as well as a few other stores.

    A few RL stores and obviously the RRL stores themselves, carry them also. Mainly the flagship stores will carry them, haven't been to one in a while, but last time I did it was the Chicago one - they nearly always carry RRL.

    Looking nice. I felt this a few days ago and liked the weight and hand. I have the older peacoat from a few seasons ago and it's basically bulletproof wool armor, very heavy and stiff. Looks like they toned it down a bit with this one, which is probably good.

    I would be using it with jeans and boots.

    Do you have any idea how warm it is? Would it be enough for 40-45 degree weather, if worn with a merino baselayer, dress shirt, and scarf? Or would I need a coat?

    If I wear 28 waist in the slim fit raw denim is it likely I'm the same size in all the chinos too?

    I've worn the aforementioned Lighthouse sweater with just a long sleeve thermal underneath and have been fine in 45 degrees. The knit is tight and thick so it blocks the wind well.
