    Completely unrealistic answer: Any shoe in a light brown or natural-whiskey shell color, preferably MacNeils, McAllisters, Leeds, Strands, and/or Carlyles

    More realistic: a light brown color calf leather, that's used on most of the standard models, that is a halfway point between walnut and brown... I assume that's happening with the demise of bourbon

    I have an old pair of brown Lasalles that are perfect. I looked at getting a newer pair of brown burnished Delrays to replace them, but they were way too dark.

    I really hope they bring back a medium brown calf leather.

    Natty shell being made available would be amazing.

    I would love a natty shell Macneil with natural edge, or a natty Player 2.0.

    Something like this from Carmina as a color option for some fall boots; AE's green offerings have generally been somewhat sickly looking to my eye.

    I prefer the brown or ravello shell more than the lighter colors like natural or whiskey, as for me lighter colors aren't that versatile. Cornwallis and Mora 2.0 in brown/ravello shell with double leather sole will be great as webgem...

    Broke down and picked up a pair of the Brooks Brothers version of the AE Duke football loafers from the Show Bank. $158 ... Great deal on these great shoes!

    Those look great! Wouldn't have known they were seconds at all. Do they have the BB sole?

    The little scuff marks are new and aren't really as obvious as the pic shows.

    I've been heavily considering a pair of them myself. Would you kindly be able to post a few more pics if possible? I have also been weighing my options with picking up an Oak Street Bootmakers beefroll loafer but the BB football Duke for less than half is really enticing.

    Nice, thanks.

    The football leather is quite good looking.

    I had to send back the first pair I ordered in my usual shoe size. These shoes run a little large ... so I went down a half size.
