Thanks for the reply! I order from Jeffersonville for seconds (only have a couple firsts that I got on Amazon). I guess I feel weird calling them up and saying "hey, can I have some free stuff?"
 Nice.  Unfortunately I don't live near any AE stores (outlets or regular).   Silly question, but would you mind posting a photo of a pair of them if you have some lying around?  Just want to get an idea of what kinds they are giving out. I'm mostly asking because I've tried heel pads in the past (for loafers) and found it to be a disaster.
For those of you who wear tongue pads (especially in loafers, but anyone who wears them in any shoes can answer), what brand/"style" do you use?  Looking for some that won't fall off or get old/worn out real quick.   Thanks.
I don't believe AE has a direct equivalent to the Singleton.
 FWIW, taking terrible looking pictures is actually what AE does best.  But, I do believe you. Shoes look great!
 To clarify, you have not ever used them yourself, but are dissatisfied after reading other customers' experiences, yes?
 What kind of monster posts this without any pictures?
Just saw the Kirkwood on the website.  This would be a decent (albeit still lower quality DR-made) foray into casual loafers, if it weren't for the boat shoe lacing around the top, and the weird tab in the back (the tab is less of an issue than the lacing).  This is what killed the McKinley for me.  
In general, I'm all for AE for any need you can fill with them.  But as far as summer casual shoes go, I think you're much better off investing in Rancourt/Oak Street Bootmakers/Quoddy if you're looking for loafers.   I do quite like the above repurposed patriot with the light welt/sole, though.   I'd like to see AE make a serious effort at some higher quality boat shoes and casual loafers to compete directly with the above mentioned brands.  I love AE as a company and...
Shaker Heights in brown/olive tweed for $217 is a steal.  I have the Brooks Brothers version (brown with navy/red tartan) and they are amazing.  The color of brown leather they use is fantastic.   Someone please buy these all up so I don't spend $217 on another pair of boots I don't need!
