I believe the Newbury are made in Spain (so Magnanni?) so it is a whole different beast. The Newbury is longer, has cleaner lines, and softer leather. Juxtapose that to AE shoes which feel sturdier, be goodyear welted (not sure how the Newbury is constructed), and thinker uppers. The fit will also be very different between the two. Best bet is to try both on and see which fits best.
