    The Carson City and MacAdam are live on the website under the Sale & Clearance section. The Carson City is quite sharp IMO.

    It's OK, but to me it looks like they just threw a white rubber sole on a dress boot.

    My local BB always has the AE version of the Gatsby. It's essentially the same as the Peal version, but made to AE's standards. They seem to have only recently disappeared from their website. Peal & Co. shoes are all rebranded. They used to be made by both Alfred Sargent and Crockett & Jones. Now all their nicer ones are still made by Crockett & Jones, with the cheaper grade Peals being made by Loake.

    Not a big fan of the wedge sole myself.

    Looks like it's basically a Long Branch with a white wedge sole instead of the black Vibram.

    Honestly, I think they would be better served with a Tobi Mini Lug, similar to Alden's Commando sole.
    I was actually considering having this change out done at some point to my Long Branches.

    I agree. The same sole as the Bayfield.

    My opinion of the Carson City is, as with a lot of AE boots, that it's incredibly stupid to make in calfskin. A rugged Vibram Christie wedge sole should be on a boot that's appropriately designed for the sole. That same design, but in CXL or Dublin would look awesome, something that can handle the elements and patina properly. But in calfskin, you'd never want to wear those boots in any scenario that would actually warrant the sole!

    That said, there are a lot of styles that would look pretty awesome in CXL, and with the MTO program, I'm thinking of ordering some next time a general sale comes around (still waiting on my shell MTOs). I'm thinking maybe Leeds in Brown CXL, as a starting idea.
