I own those - they're the AE Kenwood rebranded for BB and with a different midsole/edge dressing.  I own them in probably a half size too short or too narrow (so opposite problem from yours) but still wear them regularly because they're beautiful looking.


Are you certain of that?  It looked like BB was going the route of most other places, meaning starting at 8D so I'm SOL...but these were one of the few that started at 7D.  I was certain they were the  Made in USA Duke not the Kenwood, but I'd be interested if they really were the Kenwood.

Positive.  A few months ago I bought both the loafers you posted above and the Brooks Brothers Signature Tartan loafers as seconds from the shoebank.  

 

The first pair is listed as "Brooks Kenwood Brown/Blue."  

 

The Tartan pair was "Brooks Duke Tartan Plug."  

 

And they definitely fit differently (different lasts I'm sure).  Both were purchased in size 9D (they don't offer various widths).  The Duke/Tartan loafers were noticeably wider and more comfortable for me, while the Kenwoods were narrower (although they have stretched some over time).

To welcome the New Year, i took out the collection for a group pic (well missing 2 pairs here). As most of these are AE I thought this was the most appropriate thread to share.

Stunning lineup.

AE Wishes for 2016:
Here is my AE wish for the new year -- chukkas.
With the recent discontinuation of the Bellevue, and last year's cancellation of the Bleecker Street, there is only one chukka in the lineup. (I almost forgot -- the Gobi is a goner too.)
I would like to see a couple of new chukkas in the new year. Ideally, there could be three designs on three different lasts.
What would you like to see in 2016?

A short wing blucher.

A reasonable MTO program.

A shell trunkshow with natty, green, and #2 shell.

The Bartlett in Bourbon.

My numero uno wish is that they stop reducing size choices...new items have been stopping at size 14 most of the time lately.  (Still tolerable if they have the 'size upgrade' at a cost available)

 

MTO options which I do not expect to see:

 

1 Occasional access to out of production models. 

2 Occasional access to alternate shell colors.

3 Perforation delete or alterations.  Several of my favorite items in the closet are in this category.  

 

These options should be priced steep to assure cost coverage for the extra attention.  Doubt that will happen though.

 

And @Gabro I'd love a split toe boot, has been awhile since the Portland, maybe this will happen in 2016.

My first thought today was "boot". I changed my mind and went with my Athens instead.

(I like seeing the reflection of the trees in my coffee.)

I'm almost as impressed by the arrangement as I am the collection!  ;)
