I was thinking about one of the following =

+1. This is the closest AE has come to Alden's LHS. I've never seen the Patriot in person, but they should offer this in shell cordovan.

Agreed.

Give the Patriot a look, the leather was incredibly supple, just like their Italian loafer collection. Having said that, I also highly recommend the Italian collection. I'm extremely happy with them...

I thought they do offer the Patriot in shell- an employee told me I could order it.

Allen Edmonds does MTO at a premium - maybe this is what the employee was suggesting. This can get expensive, however. For a shell penny loafer, you might be better off with Alden.

If you guys read the narrative under the Patriot- "As if that's not enough, the Patriot is also featured in Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan leather with an exclusive black, burgundy, and brown finish burnished to rich perfection. The consummate country club shoe, the Patriot is sure to become our next American classic."

 

Shell might be coming as part of the Fall 2.0 release I suspect.

Does anyone have experience with Berwick loafers? I was wondering how the sizing runs. Usually wear a 7D/E, 7.5D, but can get some 7.5Cs- not sure if they will be too narrow.

Thanks for the help folks. I ended up not getting a pair of loafers after all, but went with the Fifth Avenues as the discount 

on them was a little higher and I needed some dark brown dress shoes. I'll come back to the loafers when summer

rolls around.

Hi everyone,

My Fifth Ave just came in yesterday. I tried it on without socks last night and found the front to be very tight. There is virtually no room for any socks. Albeit, I did order the size 9B though.

My Clifton is size 8.5D, and it fits me fine. The Nordstrom staff measured my foot at 9.5...and when I said I wanted to go with 8.5 he was against it. But it fits fine. However, my Fifth Ave, which I don't have the luxury of trying it in store, doesn't fit me very well in terms of width.

My question is how much will the width widen as I wear them more often? Only certain sizes are on sale now. My other option is 8.5E or 8.5EEE, which should I go with? I feel the length on 9B is just fine.

Btw, please correct me if I am wrong. But I believe the Clifton is on the 2 last and Fifth Ave is on the 5 last.

I like them for casual wear, and the 333 last fits my wide 10.5 EEE size great. No bowing, and the heals are level on this pair, shoe lays completely flat. Looking forward to breaking them in tomorrow biggrin.gif

Nice.....looking forward to my brown pair arriving.

Well, after wearing these for several hours in the office yesterday, they're going back.  Echoing what many others have said, that toe box just doesn't work for me.  Too bad, because I think they look great.

I got a pair of Cronmoks from Amazon in the tan finish, but the finish in person is really light. It looks like an excessively pale version of the walnut finish, not like what was shown on their website. I love the boots, but not the color. I am sending them back and have ordered the same pair but in the brown finish directly through AE. Unfortunately, the wait is 3-5 weeks on that. Does anyone else have a pair of the brown finish and share their photos? I'm crossing my fingers that it comes as a medium brown.

The best way to describe the tan finish is that it nearly matched the leather portion of the sole of the boot just a few shades darker and with an uneven/worn look to it.

Can you post some pictures in normal light before you ship them?
