Okay thanks.  Since there is no EE for those styles I think I'll give E a shot based on the slight extra room.

Gentle hommes:

 

I'm looking for plain loafers. The Steen is a good price on the 2nd sale ($157).

 

Haven't seen it in a store yet. Anyone have an opinion on the leather of the shoe?

 

Some of the AE leathers I love, others, not as much.

 

What I'd love is a plain loafer in a soft leather (like the friebergs), with a dainite sole.

 

I'd get that shoe in chili and brown suede if it existed.

 

BTW, when looking at AE main site, what are their code names for corrected grain?

 

thanks,

 

jb

Looking good in your Buffalo Wings! It's not bad this morning, just watch out fr stray road salt.
.......OR.......

It's exciting that the new spring styles will be coming in.[/quote]

Thanks. I enjoy seeing yours and always wanted a pair. I was glad to find a brand new pair on EBay.

If they are making room for spring offerings, that can only be exciting!

They frequently use the term "Polished cobbler."

OK. I'll have to look at that.

 

Also, if the newer guys are interested, shoemart, not to be confused with the shoebank, has a way you can sign up for Alden irregulars in your size.

 

I just got my email and their 403 workboot in brown chromexcel is $375. their shell chukka in black is $475. I don't know if it is $76 better than the dundee in shell for $399 but I throw those two out there for comparison.

Have you considered the Addison? They are on the 234 last - but not nearly as narrow waisted as my Amoks. I had some heel slip, but alleviated this with tongue pads. Rough leather similar to the Frieburg and has a dainite sole. Definitely more casual than other loafers. They are my casual-summer-sockless work shoe of choice, along with my Clark Streets and Kirkwoods.

In general Alden construction is a step above AE, however, many prefer the Dundee for its 3 eyelets and more pointed shape.

Looks like you got the 10.5 E list?

Does the Neumok fit more like the McTavish? Or more like the Strand?

I like those a lot, better than the Carlyle. Brogueing makes it pop just enough.

Jeffersons and coffee. And incredibly ugly carpeting.

It has been ages since I tried on the Neumok, but I would say definitely McT. I think all of the rough collection or suede shoes fit slightly larger.

Interesting question - I actually bought the neumok and mctavish at the same time. Its sort of a weird comparison - the neumok has the feel of a strand but is way roomier in the toe and instep since its unlined. The mctavish feels like a different last altogether. If I had to pick one id say the neumok fits more like the mctavish - just because they're both significantly roomier than the strand (which coincidentally I'm wearing right now).
