    I did just pick up a pair of burgundy Cambridge, and I have the Clifton in burgundy calf. Walnut calf strands, dk brown Jeffersons, and a whole host of other random aes, but no loafers except a pair of brown veronas that are too big. I'm leaning towards brown at this point, despite having substantially more pairs of brown shoes in different shades than I do burgundy.

    Thanks for the insights!

    I remembered your walnut and cap saddles, but hadn't noticed the shark saddles. Opens up a whole new dimension.
    Sorry to hear that, mdavis534, I hope they take good care of you.

    I have burgundy shell patriots and brown shell patriots. I wear the burgundy more often. Both are great, though.

    Well said. Couldn't agree more.

    Damn near perfect. I've never been a loafer fan as fit was an issue. But these were slightly snug at first and after just a few wears are great. I'm at a medical conference and have been on my feet for 7 hours and they feel fantastic.

    I agree. If it wasn't for this thread I would think that the shell used by AE was far inferior compared to Alden. The shell in the store is so dull and worn looking. More shell for us I guess!

    and don't wear black pants, especially with lighter shirts, too much of a contrast that cut your body into two.

    With the 10% off on top of the current sale price, MTO should be written in plural.

    I have both as well but I find the opposite is true for me. I wear my brown shell at least 2:1 over the burgundy. Maybe even more than that.

    I agree though that both are great!

    Haven't heard anything yet. Fingers crossed. If they don't come through, I might go for the Neumonks in Snuff. Or maybe the Patriots. $100 is a pretty amazing deal.

    I think they are ummmmm... lets just say not my taste. I've never understood the whole "exotics" thing. Yeah, it makes your shoes unique... thats the best thing I can say about them... but to each their own... those saddle's on the other hand are gorgeous, though also not my style.
