As several have suggested, you should get these. I wore my pair yesterday and really like them, and think they look even better after a year than they did new.

I have the Montana belt in grey that I use for my Long Branches as well as my grey McTavishes and J. Crew bucks.  It's lighter than I would have wanted - almost too light - but it works well enough.

Does anyone have any sizing experience with the Kenwood?  I'm an 11B in Strands/McCallisters and a 10.5B in Macneils.  I'm not sure how the loafers/Kenwood fits....

400 for shell is a good deal these days, but I'd save up and get shell from a better boot maker like AE vs. wolverine

The 744s are made by AE for Wolverine.

Wolverine shell is made by AE

 

All of Wolverine's 360-degree welted products are made by AE

I believe that AE makes the wolverine 744

Well fine, I'll just shut my mouth then - get those boots!

I've noticed quite a handful of Albertan's on here (well specifically Calgary).  

 

I travel to Calgary usually twice a year .. each time I've been up there has been mostly nonstop work and haven't had much free time... but next time, I'll make sure to add a couple extra days. Any suggestions on places/stores/etc I should stop by while in Calgary?

Don't quote me on this, but I believe AE makes most, if not all, the Wolverine 360 degree welted boots. I'm not sure where I heard that, though...

Mine seem to be shorter than the Park Ave's I have, which worked out fine for me. In terms of width, I sized up to a 3E and they fit fine, slightly larger than the E width I have with the PA. I take a size 14, which is slightly large, but 13 would be too small, so I find the Black Hills have been a good pick up. That being said, i've only worn them out once since getting them a week ago.

If AE makes the Wolverine Krause and uses Horween Dublin leather, is there any particular reason for the exorbitant difference in price between the MSRP of the Krause ($555) and any of the AE Dublin offerings ($295-345)?

2002 CHILI CALF

BROWN UPPER STITCH SEEN ON 1628

BRASS EYELETS

BLACK FLAT WELT

TOASTED EDGE DRESSING

INDEPENDENCE LINING LEATHER

DAINITE OUTSOLE

LEATHER MIDSOLE

 

Needed a versatile boot that I could wear with literally anything from jeans to a suit. I think I hit the nail on the head with these.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Color looks deeper and more brown in person, as is common with chili. Do you guys think the creasing is fine? I'm talking specifically about the second picture.

 

Also, how is the welting done on these dainite soles? Might the lack of visible stitching make these more durable?

 

 

For those of you who have been wondering about sizing on the 2-last, I'm normally a 13C on the 5-65, and these fit me very nicely in 13D. 

 

Since you requested a midsole, the welt stitching was stitched to that, and then the Dainite sole was cemented onto the midsole.  I don't think you will likely see a difference in durability.  The stitches are lock stitched, and therefore they are designed to take abrasion.   Sometimes the system fails, but it is the exception to the rule.
