OK, it took some digging to find your 6265 shoes. From the Fall 1986 AE catalog, the 6265 is the Chestnut Polished Cobbler McAllister. They are technically "brown" but chestnut is a lighter shade of brown. AE no longer makes chestnut polish and the closest substitute is walnut. They discontinued this shoe in 1989.
Wow! Nice job and thanks. I saw them for $50 on ebay and was curious about the color. You answered my question and even gave me the history of the model. Thanks!
