Nice collection that loafers looks like a Sebago hand sewn. I like the Ridgeway.

Thanks. The loafer is the Duke. It's great, despite being made in the DR.

Arrived home to find my 3 pack order from Shoebank...and the McInley a DR slip on were in the and are quite more substantial than I anticipated...oddly enough the left shoe(my smaller foot) fits perfect and the right shoe(bigger foot) I walk right out of it...This will be perfect summer shoes if I can get the size right. On top of the fit issue - there are some stitch and beef roll issues that would easily be acceptable in a second. The sole looks grippy but a touch heavy - and it seems over all AE managed to get the heel right in that it tapers very closely to my Sebago beef roll...something they still can not figure out in the USA versions. Read review on these another person commented on right heel slip...

 

Black Shaker Heights that popped up on shoe bank arrived(had SA call warehouse ot have them inspected)...they are great...fit wonderful and I can not figure out the flaw...perhaps a tiny dent in the leather on the heel? So the crooked tweed pair will be going back if anyone is interested let me know they are 13d. 

 

Gobi in snuff suede also arrived - with nothing to compare to took a shot on the 13D - they fit similar to the 73 last(shaker heights last i think) but more room in toe box and a touch tighter...they fit great with thin socks and probably will loosen up to fit medium weight sock. They are great looking and classic chukka design. Snuff is darker than I thought which I like.

@Kahuna75, there is a pair of Black SH's available in my size.  I'd love a pair of one of the browns, but I can't figure out what to wear the black ones with.  Please help enable me.

Well I am a complete casual dresser so I wear them with black, grey, olive, bordeaux, Chinos and cords as well as with a few pair of tweeds I picked up that should be arriving in grey and olive.

Thats what I wear my black leeds and black Carson cities with now so the shakers will be filling in for those.

Thanks @Kahuna75!  I'm also eyeing a pair of black Promontory's.  I'm pretty sure there will be Shaker Heights of some color in my future.

That is a great exchange. Despite wanting a Whiskey or Walnut Shell Cordovan Captoe Balmoral, light colored Captoe Balmorals are very hard to match. The Walnut Strand is AEs best shoe in my opinion.

Agreed. Got my eye on a walnut Dalton on shoe bank too, may pull the trigger this week when they have the 20% off virtual tent sale Nov 6.
Meanwhile, I also picked up a black Carlyle and natural tan Addison for $80 each on clearance at Macy's today.....I wanted a Gridiron the computer said they had in my size, but they couldn't find them😳

Suede Neumoks are great shoes. Also really like Suede Plain Toe Bluchers and Loafers.
