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,

    Good? bad? indifferent?

    How does it compare to the EG Berkely?

    I personally prefer the Berkeley because of the choice of lasts and widths (and therefore fits better), and much better range of colors. The C&J brown is very nice, but Dark Oak edges it out in my opinion.

    You're also talking very different price ranges. The Belgrave is about $400 from PLAL (or about $650 from NYC retailers), whereas the Berkeley retails at $850+. Even with the upcoming EG sale, if you're lucky enough to find a Berkeley in your size, it'll cost about $500.

    If price is not an issue I would go with whichever fits better. I also saw the Sargent made Peal & Co. shoes in the same style at Brooks. They were very nice too, though not as elegant a last as the C&J or EG.
