    It was the original BB Gatsby, which are these.

    Wait so the McAllisters on the shoebank inventory list will be on sale at the BB shoes price? There are no separate BB - McAllisters on the shoe bank list.

    Keep the box, email the outlet and tell then you're sending back. They'll email you a return label.

    There's a $10 restock fee for 2nds

    5603 is probably the style number. That's the Schautal- essentially a snuff suede MacNeil. Someone on here said that AE made them exclusively for ether Nordstrom Rack, or the European market, I believe.

    Thank you!

    I found a thread over at AAAC covering it. Looks like it is essentially a Macneil in suede. Made for The Rack.

    Also, there is no little marking on the bottom like one usually sees on seconds.

    Regardless of what Brenda at AE says, all the Schnautals I've seen at the Rack have the marking on the bottom indicating seconds.

    Looks like a derby boot version of the Morgan.

    Question: is the Long Branch essentially a Dalton with a Vibram sole and no lace holes at the top?

    It seems to be a happy medium to me - not dressy enough to wear with a suit, but perhaps the lighter brown can be worn with charcoal/navy trousers and a tie + blazer?

    Yeah, they are both on the 511 last. I would say the main difference is the leather, it's a more distressed looking leather (or waxed leather). Combined with the speed hooks and the vibram sole, it has a more casual feel.

    To me it almost feels like a boot like version of the McTavish, where as the Dalton is more of a boot version of the McAllister.

    Whether you personally try and pull it off with a sport coat/blazer and a tie is up to your personal style. To me this straddles a little too far on the casual side to pull off a tie.

    But I am now Style advisor. :)

    Whether or not these are seconds is irrelevant to me or to the question I asked. Are they not worthy because you don't like them or because they're seconds?

    I'll go back to my normal corners of STyleforum now, because frankly, this level of snobbishness does not make me want to dive into this thread.

    I read that here before somewhere, but it prompts the question "What European market"? Allen Edmonds are almost impossible to find in Europe.

    When I want them, I've ordered from Jeffersonville, had them shipped to my sister-in-law near Boston, and then had her stick them in her suitcase on her next trip to Europe.
