    1st post....I've been lurking for a few months once i got hooked with my 1st pair of AE shoes. I'm now the proud owner of 6 pair.

    Anyone own the Sea Island Suede loafers and have an impression? They're now on my radar and am curious what you guys think of them?

    My first suede and my first chukka purchase. I am quite pleased with these Dundees, especially at $86.74 shipped from Ebay (and to think I almost bought Clarks desert boots). The uppers look great but I think it's time that I start looking at edge dressing for these and the rest of my shoes.

    I am now at 4 pairs of Allen Edmonds in just 2 months...the addiction...I mean investment continues...

    Strange that you and I happen to be wearing the same thing today, although mine aren't brand new[​IMG]

    I'm looking to add nothing but loafers for my next few pairs. They have really been growing on me lately. And those Cody's look awesome

    Traveling for work and things are a tad bit cooler than in Texas. Brown grain First Aves about as formal as I'm getting considering the circumstances.

    Went home for lunch today and there were my new brown burnished McGregors waiting for me. Trying to decide if I like them or not. I guess I'm just not sure if the 65 last is right for a LWB. Dunno, it just seems a lot more sleek than I was expecting. The vamp seems really elongated. It's definitely dressier than I was expecting a more casual shoe to be. I held it up next to my oxblood Strands and it might be a touch longer, nothing noteworthy, but it's definitely narrower at the toe. They fit about the same width-wise, but it wears like a longer shoe.

    I own a vintage pair of American Gentleman burgundy LWBs and something about their proportions seems "right" to me for lack of a better term. It's squatter and a bit wider with a double sole and allowed me to drop down 1/2 size. Maybe it's because it's the only LWB I've ever owned and that's my expectation. Or, maybe it's the color issue and brown is just not the right color for this one. I dunno. I'm missing a brown "dress" shoe in my rotation and was hoping this would fit the bill (I definitely work on the casual side of "business casual").

    In a nutshell, I'm just babbling. The McGregor is different than what I was expecting. Now, I just need to decide if that different feel is a good thing or a bad thing.

    What are your thoughts on the McGregor? Love it? Hate it? "Meh" it?

    Saw this and was definitely interested. However, I typically wear a 12A in the 65 last... Anyone think it would work?

    Wearing mine today @donkeyhoatie and love them. Same shoe size as my strands. I made the mistake, or brilliant choice, to get both in oxblood.
