    You can still return the DSW ones right? Though it's possibly they make different color, at least for RLPL made in Italy does, and doesn't MacKay by EG in 888 used to have more than one color?

    I suppose you will find out exactly what color the Aksels are upon delivery of the pair you ordered. Please let me know, once they arrive. I did see the pair on eBay, and I recognize they are the same style. I simply cannot tell if the pair at DSW is indeed Dark Oak.

    FYI, Ralph Lauren sold a run of Edward Green shoes within the last few years that were largely Edwardian, Burnt Pine, and Hazel. They had a few styles left this past winter at the Rhinelander Mansion store. I believe this run included the Aksel, or a very similar oxford style, that was not Dark Oak.

    I really hope your pair of Aksels are Dark Oak, or Burnt Pine at the least! These are some of the lowest prices I have encountered recently on Edward Green shoes. Thus, I am sure some of this stock will quickly reappear on eBay for healthy markups.

    Cheers.

    I saw these in person two X-Mas' ago at the Mansion. They didnt have my size so I picked up the Brooksville instead. It was Dark Oak.

    I do not understand why one would wish to buy a horse bit loafer from EG. Gucci's are much better looking.

    If alden's color 8 is considered the king, would dark oak be the eg equivalent? Although I got my dovers in hazel as well.

    I mean awesome catalog, I don't wear loafer in general, my left foot is 9E, right is 9.5D on the wider side, so loafer just doesn't work...

    Though yea not sure why I would want to buy bit loafer from EG (or anyone for that matter, I don't like bit loafer...)

    Reasonable minds can disagree on this one, but it is certainly my favorite EG color, which is why I have it in a captoe blucher, a captoe bal, and a split toe blucher.

    I'm with you - I have no love for the horse bit loafer, no matter who is making it. To each their own.

    Congrats on a great deal :) I love the westminster on 888, probably my favourite shoe

    Will report back. Still haven't even got my confirmation that they shipped - still In Process. Hopefully I'll have them this week, but I'm guessing they might not be here until next week. The 25% off coupon expires today - If I were you I'd take the gamble. Total with tax and shipping came to $530ish. They don't look like the Edwardian end of the spectrum to me based upon the DSW pics. Use the Sanderson as comparison. I know those aren't EG RL shoes, but I think it is a pretty true reflection of the color - have seen them before. The Aksel could be Hazel or Burnt Pine I guess which I'd be happy with. I love dark oak, but my collection needs to branch out a bit.

    Good luck on the Aksel! Find it funny that I have a pair of RLPL DM called the Ancel.

    Really like a couple of the RL shoes on sale but unfortunately they are not the EG shoes but the Italian ones. For >$500, they're just not that great of a deal.
