    I like the Flatiron. I have to use an insole with them due to the volume. A chukka version of the Flatiron would be nice, don't you think?

    Sea Island look great- the only thing keeping me on the fence is that I just wish it was made in America

    I tried the Sea Island on and my impression is that they ran long and narrow. The D was tight compared to other AE loafers like the Lowry Hill and Cavanaugh

    I agree on the Sea Island. Wasn't there some initial information saying it would be made in Port Washington? I'm not inclined to drop $300 on an import. Plus, is it made on the 555 last? I have a pair of Naples that are built on that last, and while it's a beautiful shoe, it is so narrow that I hobble a lot Lund for a day or two after each wearing. So, I guess truth be told, even if the shoe were made here, I doubt I'd buy any shoe built on that last.

    Why is there no edit feature on tapatalk? I meant to say that I hobble around for a day or two after each wearing. Sorry, gents.

    New Chili University. Odd blotchy spot on the tongue (I'm guessing from someone putting a burnished thumb down haphazardly), but look great otherwise. Keeping these over the walnut pair, which was surprisingly spotted. Finding I really like the 333 last. [​IMG]

    Looks like the new AE wedding offer added the Cornwallis to the student interview offer options. Good timing, as I was just thinking about buying a friend some shoes for his wedding.

    Firsts, as were the walnut. There's some inconsistency in the burnishing, but it will even out over time. [​IMG]
    Here is another weird thumbprint-like blotch on the inside; I don't really care since it's unseeable when on the foot. And $217 is a heck of a steal!

    The McGregor is so much better looking than the McNeil.

    I returned a pair that didn't fit on Sunday and will have the new shoe on Wednesday, but I guess it depends on availability and what DC it's shipping from.
