I have reluctantly concluded that the 222 (like the 333) is not built for my foot (which apparently is "blobbish" rather than "sleek" or "European").  My beautiful Sandersons will go back, to be replaced down the line with what I really need: everyday shoes that work with worsted wool or corduroy: the pebbled McNeils, brown McTavishes, or (gasp) Fenways.  I almost made the MTO plunge but couldn't justify it.  I'll leave you all to revel in your purchases....

Do you guys have a recommendation for an AE loafer which accommodates a high instep? I love the patriots but the instep areas is too tight!

Check out the Aberdeen. It's an excellent everyday shoe. It's also on the 2 last but it comes in different widths.

Am I the only one that thinks certain members of this forum are payed to generate excitement for AE?

If they are I want in on it. I would certainly work for shell.

I remember reading something about this earlier on the forums, but does the MTO sale for $505 end today? Or did Allison extend the date?

I believe the post said it can go a few days further, but only if you start working with her on it by today.

Was that you I saw on the street corner this morning?  I was about to give you a dollar until I saw your, "Will work for shell sign," and noticed that, despite your rags and haggard facial expression, you had on shell boots that were worth more than I had in my wallet.

The sale ends today *but* she can extend it for another week if you start working on your custom order before it ends today. Of course, it being AE, she probably would honor it for the next week anyway, since the retail stores honor the RDA sales both ahead and after the fact all the time.

No one has mentioned it during the RDA sale, because 15% off has been so good.... but during the anniversary sale in the spring, the standard discount is 19.22% off. Which means, if they honor that sale price too, it'll be down to $480 for shell MTOs.

I've said it before, but I've got to say it again. This is such an unheard of deal, it's ridiculous. Considering the prices, lead times, and lack of customizability for certain competitors for shell... well, even if you think certain other brands make better shells (I don't, personally) there's just no beating this.

BTW, I can't remember if I mentioned this... you know how the Neumoks have a leather half-sole inside, on top of the normal hard leather insole? Well, you can get that on any MTO, and it'll be made out of the material of the shoe... so you can get a shell half-sole (on top of a piece of foam, on top of the normal insole). My brown shell Neumoks will of course have this, and I had my shell Banchory made up that way as well.

RDA ends today at midnight eastern. The discount down to $505 would therefor end with that sale, but I don't have a clue s to if or when they will stop waiving the SF MTO fee.

Didn't see this posted earlier but JAB has a sale today and the codes actually work on full-priced shoes. You need to enter 2 codes: SAVE20 gets you 20% off of all regular priced merchandise and EXTRA25 gets you an extra 25% off of everything. $345 AE shoes drop to 207. Make sure you use all CAPS on the codes....

$505 deal will be done today, but you can still get MTO shell for $595 after.

I'm in the same boat - I can't wear the Patriot due to a high instep.

The loafer that fits me very well is the Westchester - but it has been discontinued. And the Jermyn also fits me well - but it is also discontinued.

The Nashua fits me very well, so if you can go a bit more casual I would suggest you try that one.

I'm hoping for something new as I cannot wear most loafers currently offered by AE.

Yup. That's why you didn't get any bites the first time you posted about it.
