For those that aren't familiar with all the Brooks Brothers (BB) and Ralph Lauren (RL) models, here are the ones I know of. I've linked to their respective websites if possible. Feel free to let me know of any additions or corrections and I can try to keep it up-to-date. Also, if you know which last a given RL model is on, let me know and I'll add it. I'm not positive about the links with question marks; please let me know if you can confirm.

Wait so the McAllisters on the shoebank inventory list will be on sale at the BB shoes price? There are no separate BB - McAllisters on the shoe bank list.post #33918 of 7073711/21/13 at 4:31pmKeep the box, email the outlet and tell then you're sending back. They'll email you a return label.

5603 is probably the style number. That's the Schautal- essentially a snuff suede MacNeil. Someone on here said that AE made them exclusively for ether Nordstrom Rack, or the European market, I believe.post #33921 of 7073711/21/13 at 4:47pm
I found a thread over at AAAC covering it. Looks like it is essentially a Macneil in suede. Made for The Rack.Quote:Just got the scoop from Brenda at AE and she was very helpful.
She said she has been with AE for over 20 years and she has never heard of the Schautal. She had to do some digging on her computer to find it and you won't find it on the AE web site.
The Schuatal is made only for the Nordstrom Rack and it was introduced in October 2012. It is not a factory second nor is it made in an inferior manner.
It is definitely made in USA from first quality materials. Essentially it is a suede leather MacNeil, double oak sole, etc. on a 97 last (same as #7).
On these she said the final number in the style "5603" does not mean the specific last anymore. She said there are too many lasts now so AE went to double digit numbers to specify the last.
A very nice shoe!post #33922 of 7073711/21/13 at 4:54pmQuote:Originally Posted by njruss
Been a decent week. Yesterday, my Banff slippers arrived after 4 weeks and today my black Mctavish seconds from the $159 sale. This is the 1st pair of seconds that arrived with shoe bags. Clearly they had been laced before but there is absolutely not a mark on the soles. Do you think this indicates that they were returns of firsts instead of true seconds? The box is labeled as a second.
Also, there is no little marking on the bottom like one usually sees on seconds.post #33923 of 7073711/21/13 at 5:23pmpost #33924 of 7073711/21/13 at 8:28pmpost #33925 of 7073711/21/13 at 8:39pmpost #33926 of 7073711/21/13 at 9:02pmpost #33927 of 7073711/21/13 at 9:11pm
Question: is the Long Branch essentially a Dalton with a Vibram sole and no lace holes at the top?
It seems to be a happy medium to me - not dressy enough to wear with a suit, but perhaps the lighter brown can be worn with charcoal/navy trousers and a tie + blazer?

Yeah, they are both on the 511 last. I would say the main difference is the leather, it's a more distressed looking leather (or waxed leather). Combined with the speed hooks and the vibram sole, it has a more casual feel.
To me it almost feels like a boot like version of the McTavish, where as the Dalton is more of a boot version of the McAllister.
Whether you personally try and pull it off with a sport coat/blazer and a tie is up to your personal style. To me this straddles a little too far on the casual side to pull off a tie.
But I am now Style advisor. :-)

Whether or not these are seconds is irrelevant to me or to the question I asked. Are they not worthy because you don't like them or because they're seconds?
I'll go back to my normal corners of STyleforum now, because frankly, this level of snobbishness does not make me want to dive into this thread.post #33930 of 7073711/22/13 at 3:04am
I read that here before somewhere, but it prompts the question "What European market"? Allen Edmonds are almost impossible to find in Europe.
When I want them, I've ordered from Jeffersonville, had them shipped to my sister-in-law near Boston, and then had her stick them in her suitcase on her next trip to Europe.
