    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.

    Perfect, ordered the 5A and was just curious.

    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.
