Nice Polo. Very nice! I have the natural laces also, but decided to go with the darker standard AE laces so that the laces didn't get to much attention and the shoe got the most attention.

These loafers squeak so bad coming from the heel area, I cannot even wear them.  I contacted the seller, no help what so ever.

 

I have no Idea what options I have now with these shoes, as I am having a hard time wanting to resell them because of the issues at hand...will Allen Edmonds help? I assume not, because no warranty is stamped.  I was really pissed about this purchase.

You can dispute things with ebay if you want. I would contact the seller and let them know you plan to do this since they weren't helpful. Or take them to a cobbler.

Maybe it is simply that the heel is loose? Replacing them might fix it. I had a heel squeak problem with a pair once and that fixed it.

Had this same problem with the same seller. Squeaky shoes and W stamped in the shoe.

 

The seller offered to take the shoes back if I returned them.

Quick question, since it's hard to tell the exact colour from their photography, is the merlot close to burgundy?
I already have some MacNeils in chili. Would the merlot be too similar?



Chili McAllister and BB Merlot McAllister. They look nothing alike but both look amazing.

Great.
Thanks.


One further question though. Do the webgems ever turn up at the Shoebank, or Jeffersonville as seconds?

I wouldn't imagine there would be a lot of them. Remember, seconds only occur when defects or manufacturing errors happen. Webgems are MTO which means there aren't many being made, lowering the chances there being some with defects available.

It's not a heel loose, I can duplicate the squeak by pinching the leather between my fingers on the upper heel area. Where they stitch the leather together at te back. I think it's in the construction.

I've never experienced that. How does it happen? What pieces are rubbing against each other?

I got my cognac and orange webgem Ridgeway seconds from the Port Washington, WI factory outlet store.  This was long before Ridgeways went into regular production, just after they were webgems.  And right off the top of my head I can say that I've seen with my own eyes the red, white, & blue webgems and also the jingle bell moc webgems on the seconds shelves in the Port Washington factory outlet store.  So there are three examples that I can think of.

I did, I went with a black welt and light brown edge. I'm not sure how it will turn out, but I'm excited non the less.

After trying many lasts (1, 5, 8) in many sizes, I can't find one that fits my feet because they are so low volume, especially around the heel and ankle.  This leads to the dreaded topline bulge with every downstep I make.  I have a pair of Macneil's coming in (last 7), and I'll see if those work.  Other than that, I am thinking I might just need to stick to boots.  

 

How do you all feel about fifth street boots with a suit? I wish they didn't have the broguing, but I think I can deal with it so that my shoes don't bulge at the topline.

 

Alternatively, any good recommendations for low volume lasts, or balmoral captoe boots without broguing?

I wear my brown fifth street boots almost exclusively with suits. I've never had a problem at all with bulge. I also wear several higher boots with suits as well (i.e. Carmina Balmoral Boots & Alden Captoe Boots).

Have you tried shoes on the 3 lasts? It's not a boot, but  Harrison is a cap toe balmoral on the 3 last. Not sure if its a low volume last as I havent tried it personally.
