I have both the evanston and melrose. Go with the melrose, much more versatile, comfortable, and I have gotten a decent amount of complements on them. I actually have rubber sole protectors on mine, adding even a little more versatility when it is a little wet outside. As an added note, I have a bit loafer from AE, not the Burbank, but the Verona....I like it alot, might be another option to consider. Those are the most comfortable of any AE shoe I have ever owned.

I am 23, and I pretty much only wear dress pants with pleats. My chinos/khaki pants are flat front though.

Have you ever taken a look at the vineyard vines blazer....a complete joke.

Quote: Originally Posted by porcelain monkey I doubt they are made in the US, but I don't know. I have been looking for decent loafers that are "just like Bass Weejuns" for a while now. If Bass has a better Weejun, I want to try it. Per endless they are made in Brazil. I would be interested in finding out what people think of these. I too have wanted to give Bass Weejuns a try but have been scared away by peoples claims of lousy quality. I...
Quote: Originally Posted by gdl203 1cm is very little. You can ask your alteration tailor to simply cut a new hole on the inside portion of the French cuff 1cm closer to the wrist. It is very cheap and will solve your problem. You don't need a good tailor for this - I'd think a basic dry cleaner/alteration guy would work fine. I thought about this, but the current cuff folds up right to the edge. On another note, I never understood why...
