    They are! They were definitely a bit lighter when I purchased them, but have darkened with wear. They were inexpensive seconds and I am definitely getting my money's worth. :slayer:

    I like those! How does the sizing compare to something like the Strand or Park Ave?

    How long does it typically take to receive an order from allen edmonds? Never have ordered online always in store.

    I am an 11.5 D in the 5/65 Last, and my AE loafer size is 11 D. At least so far.

    I could easily have gone up a half size and been fine, but when I tried them on I preferred the more snug feel of the 11 D.

    Wore my Brogue Suede Stands today. Allen-Edmonds has stopped using "Brogue" Suede as a suede color term, probably because it might have confused some people. These are also some of the first A-E shoes that had Dainite soles and heels.

    (Yes, they were Seconds. Some of you might imagine that you see what's wrong. I don't see anything wrong when I am walking around wearing them.)

    Tried the Mora 2.0s on around the house last night, I'm afraid they're too short; my outer toes touch the edge when standing. Unfortunately there's no 14 A, and I think 14 B would be too wide.

    Depends, one pair of shoes I ordered online was "in stock" and arrived after about a week.

    A pair I ordered that had to be "handcrafted in about 2 weeks" was delivered in 3.

    Another pair I ordered in store, and they had in stock but had to ship from a different store, took over 2 weeks.

    Basically if it's in stock, plan on a week.

    The AE Boone's for a concert in Nashville. Every southern gentleman should have a pair.

    Went in to the AE store and walked out (metaphorically) with a pair of Dark Chili Fifth Avenue's. Two week backorder due to demand right now.

    I did get the belt, trees and polish though, so now the dreaded countdown begins.

    Place was crowded which was great to see.

    I got the golden brown in Kirkwood, and the dark brown Maritime last year. I wish I had gotten golden brown in both.

    I did the opposite - dark brown Kirkwood and golden brown Maritime (and also a navy Maritime). I kinda wish I would've gone golden brown for both as well, but I still love my Kirkwoods anyway.

    I'm still upset that I didn't pick up a pair when Nordstrom had them on sale two years ago.

    Anyone with the suede Dundee's (Loden/Olive specifically), which edge dressing do you use? AE website says brown, but I'm thinking the clear would be best if they are just a little dull and not seriously scuffed.

    Thanks,

    Self-serving public announcement. I will be listing these 11 EEE Fairfax soon on Ebay. PM me if you are interested before they go to the general public.

    For the many of you who are local to NYC; which is your favorite retail location? I'm going to be in town for my brother's graduation next month, and I figure buying him a nice pair of shoes is a great gift (and will give me a chance to order some shell Strands!). I know there's a few, but at least one of them is pretty small. Which has the best stock/staff?

    I go to Madison Ave. There are two SAs there that I avoid, but the rest are great. I wouldn't recommend the Rockefeller Center store. The small store that you referred to, the 44th st store, is the #1 AE store globally in terms of sales (was told by an assistant manager).
