    It's the only AE loafer made on the 222 last. Also they are made completely in Pirt Washington as opposed to being clicked and stitched in the DR like most AEs. You also get a different sole. But the premium is likely due to the name. For their part, RL doesn't admit that they're made by AE.

    Was wiping down my shoe family and realized I now have a lot of shoes. In my head, I won't buy anymore but we all know that's not true. Not all of these are AE but here's my humble collection so far. *sigh* I should have got a sleeker Chelsea boot...

    It is also rumored the Sanderson is on the 222. I have both It is odd that while they seem as narrow as the 65, they are both tolerant of my high instep. It's my best fitting loafer. The Sanderson (I have the dark brown) with its flat welt and relative sleekness (as far as LWB's go) could stand in as a suit shoe if someone had a limited rotation. Two darn good shoes if the fit works for somebody.

    Thanks. I was at 14 SMU's and now down to 8 pairs. Well, just let me know. They are listed in B&S.

    Does anyone have some photos of the Natural Oak Street in regular light? I know I would love these, as they are CXL, Dainite, 65, and on sale for $225, but I'm concerned about how light they are and if they would be redundant with a Golden CXL Rush Street. Even so, this might be too much of a deal to miss.

    I've got my eye on Oxblood too, but i saw where shoebank has the Burgundy Cordovan Dalton's in stock for only a couple hundred more. Tough decision to make, especially when i won't likely be wearing boots for another 5 or 6 months

    FYI, Ralph Lauren just extended their Friends and Family 30% off discount another 2 days. You can grab the Ralph Lauren Singleton for around $330 with free 2 day shipping if you use Shop Runner.
