Huh? AE and Alden both use a lot of the same leathers from Horween.
Life without loafers? - Page 6
Poll Results: How important are loafers to your wardrobe?
25% (45)Critical. Without loafers, I would lose the will to live.
40% (71)Not critical, but I wear them frequently enough to consider them a wardrobe staple.
11% (20)They're almost useless, but I'd rather have them and not wear them than run the risk of not having them on hand when the proper occasion arises.
23% (41)I don't own loafers, or I own some but never wear them.
I agree. Recently I have seen a large expansion of companies using and promoting their leather products with Horween chrmxl whether its shoes, accessories. I like AE as well, but I was just commenting about Aldens butyl soles from the US, as well as insoles from the same tannery and I have always liked their cow lining which I believe is out of WI. Makes a very flexible comfortable shoe, great for loafers like the one above !
