 Ha, thanks, I'm an idiot.  I use neutral on my two walnut shoes (or sometimes cognac which is closer to walnut than walnut polish, in my opinion) because I feel like walnut adds an orange-ish color.  Obviously neutral would work well here too.
  So I now own the Shaker Heights for Brooks Brothers.  Any suggestions on color of AE premium polish to use?  Too dark for walnut, too light for dark brown.  I have saddle brown polish but that's a redder/almost chili color.     I feel like maybe bourbon is the closest (I don't have any bourbon polish yet).  
 I'm a huge fan of the 8 last and almost for this reason alone I prefer the Carlyle.  Also, I really dig the smooth, clean lines and simple look.  Personally, I'd go with the chili, especially since the new Bob's chili color seems to be an "improvement" over the previous chili color.
I'm not even sure if AE makes these (they bear a nearly identical resemblance to the Shaker Height boot, except for the different pattern fabric panel), but I figured I'd ask for opinions about the Brooks Brothers Tartan Leather boot.  Anyone else own these and have any input?  They're 50% off right now at BB.    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Leather-and-Signature-Tartan-Boots/MH00453,default,pd.html
Nah, the price listed is the final price and already reflects the 40% off.
 I have both the Sandersons and Singletons in tan and in brown.  I don't even like suede, but considered buying the suede ones just because I like the shoes that much.
 Never suggested it would or should.
Just as a small clarification, the Vernon is in Saddle Brown, not Chili.
 If they made these modeled on the 8 last (and thus looked more like a boot version of the Delray or Lasalle), I'd want them.  I just don't care for the look/fit of the 333 last, unfortunately.
 The welt on one of my LBs look like that and I'm not one bit worried.   The wrinkling looks similar to wrinkling I've had on calfskin seconds, and I imagine would be within the specs for yours if they're seconds (your shoes look like the CXL version, right?) Then again, mine are seconds . . . were yours firsts?
