    It actually is the Burke loafer. Good eye. I got it at Nordstrom Rack last week on what I thought was a good deal, $140. I honestly like it a lot because of its unique color. Do you have any experience with this model?

    Thanks! I actually like them but I'm just worried I might look like I'm trying to look to old with them on.

    I needed to wear a shoe that would be casual for the first meeting, but not look too out-of-place when I added a sports coat immediately afterwards. My first thought was "McTavish", but I went with the Oak Streets instead.

    No C widths, even though the Broadstreet used to be available in C (I have 'em in Brown & White and like you would like to add the Walnut/Bone). Too much heel slippage in D and cramped toebox in B. C'mon AE, you have the lasts, and the email says all of these are going to be MTO, so what's up with excluding C? [​IMG]

    Try talking to a sales associate and see if they can order a pair for you in a "C" width.

    Just got my merlot McAllisters delivered. Even though I asked that someone check them over before shipping (because I'm in Canada), there's still a problem.

    These are firsts from the May sale.

    What would you guys do about this?

    What happened to all of the soles?

    I recently received a Sole Conversion guide from AE when I was planning a recrafting. The list contained 7 options for customers:

    Single oak, double oak, VIP rubber, V Tread Rubber, Othello, Toby mini-lug and Dainite.

    This is a drastic change from just 5 years ago when the 2011 fall catalog boasted of "25 superbly crafted soles." I offer this to show changes in the production options in the past half decade and a reference to the age of some of the shoes we encounter with other soles.

    Are they hiding the other options, or are they gone for good? That's disappointing. I was under the false belief that all of these options were still available.

    To be fair some of those belong to non-recraftable shoes, or are for specific make-ups like driving mocs and boat shoes. Though, I'm not sure why single and double butyl were not in the list they sent you.

    In any case, at least I now know the name of the sole type on my Chocolate Daltons (Clare Rubber). I don't believe it was in the list of soles at the beginning of the AE MTO thread.
