Just picked these Addisons up on the bay fairly cheap- I am sure they are no warranty so curious to see the defect - description said suede - I can not tell what the leather is - the regular issue of it was CXL right?- hoping to use these as a base to size some other loafers-curious what the flaw was or just returned after being worn. I needed something to give my boat shoes a break in the summer.
I have a pair of these on the way from the Shoebank as well. The original is actually suede as well, though a CXL would look excellent. I think someone on the MTO thread did one in dark brown. I went to one of the AE stores in Manhattan and thought this was, by far, the best casual loafer they offer. The red Dainite sole just sets it off.
