For a company doing $100m in revenue and growing at 10-20% a year that's just not important. You'd rather focus on developing new models to sell in stores or working on new channel partners.

 

If they leverage it correctly, it is more of a marketing and brand-building spend than anything, in addition to the other benefits above.  I think they'd do well to connect with the guys who are so engaged with Viberg, Truman, etc.

Can anyone recommend another penny loafer that looks like these particular Walden's?  These are beauties.

Available in natural CXL. Can swap put the standard sole for the leather sole it looks like the pair in the photo have, though the stock version on the camp soles is a fantastic deal.

I emailed Allison a few days ago and she said MTO will return sometime this year.  She did not have a more specific time frame or any idea of what options would be on the table.

Well, that is great news and settles it for me.  After i get my Strand Cordovans i ordered a few weeks ago, Brown 5th Avenues i purchased on eBay and plan to get re-crafted and a pair of Chili Carlyle's when they go on sale in April, i'm officially holding out until i can get a pair of natural shell strands.

That likely will never happen again.

I'm thinking that's time to close this thread.
IF an MTO program ever materializes, we can start a new one.

@watchidiot Dale, do you recall an MTO you submitted for a Clark Street in a reddish color?  I think you returned them for a spec issue.  They were gorgeous but I don't recall what sort of leather they were.  Do you remember?   

 

Thanks.

I think it was russet brown Dublin. Like the Sauk Drive

Strictly speaking, a limited one does exist (or did up to at least a month ago when I last checked).  The right SA can take an order in any of their stock shells and sole options for another hundred or so bucks over the normal shell shoe price.  Nothing fun with the welts, piping ,etc though...

That would have been my guess. I wish the leather of my Sauk Drives had arrived looking that good.

Yeah, that's the thing about the Black Friday deals. They're made with the excess leather AE has sitting around, so it's usually the cuts that weren't of preferred quality.
