That Leiden in brown grain is pretty sweet, but I don't necessarily think I would buy it. I love that they have the Strand in suede again- that snuff and navy suede are awesome (though I don't know that I'll buy either at this point, since I have chocolate suede Strands on Dainite as it is). That navy suede Acheson though....I've been looking for a navy suede tassel loafer for a long time...

Also, did y'all see the MTO?:

They have had that custom neumok available for a while. At the very least since March Madness if not even earlier.

I know, I've seen them do it around March Madness for the past couple years- I just haven't ever seen it pop up in August. It may have and I've just never noticed, but I think I'm pulling the trigger this go around

Store #2 said small wrinkle from trying on and slight fatty leather at eyelids which will be covered anyways.

My question is what exactly does fatty leather look like? I should go with #2 right?

 

Also how are your belts holding up. Was going to get a wide dress or poplar belt to match these chili carlyles but the reviews on the belts seem horrible as far as not matching and cracking and fading.

All of my belts have held up well thus far. I have 2 poplar ones and they are great for me. I haven't had the wide dress because of how bad many of the reviews were.

These Byrons have fallen off my rotation and not seen daylight for the past several months. Thank goodness for shoe bags. They fit so well that they really deserve to get back in the line-up.

Sorry, just saw this. No they don't, but I imagine they will a bit (haha) once the shoe breaks in more. A "bit" of jingle doesn't bother me

I got puns fo' days

I am the same size as  you, and I just bought a Park Ave in 7.5 E last week.  It fits perfectly.  I think 7.5 E will probably work great for you.

 

Actually,  your instep doesn't look as bad as mine.  8 D might be perfect for you.  I suggest trying it.

I'm assuming they mean tiger stripes by "veins".  I'd go with no. 2.   

 

Keep in though that the Carlyle is going to get wrinkled.

lol, yes.  Don't order it in merlot.  Black is okay, but beware of the other colors.

Super, super comfortable too

Those look great. I got a pair recently too. I got my TTS size but now I'm wondering if they are a tad small at the top box. What size did you go with?

TTS, 10.5D- perfect fit for me. I have about 1/2-3/4" of space between my big toe and the end of the shoe, but the ball of my foot aligns perfectly with the widest part of the sole, so i guess that's how it's supposed to fit. There's ever-so-slight heel slip, but as long as the shoe doesn't meaningfully stretch, it won't be an issue.

I have been looking to add some more suede to my collection, and I like these new suede Achesons and Strands more than many of Allen Edmonds's previous suede offerings. If any seconds become available in my size, I will likely pounce on some loafers. Most of my favorite shoes (to wear with clothes other than suits) are boots, which I can't often wear in the heat and humidity of New York summers. Suede loafers may be just the ticket.
