    My new Dune Longwings (B Grades) right out of the box. They look fantastic. Love the color (they appear a good bit darker in this pic than IRL). Thanks, Grant Stone! :fonz:

    I'm also very intrigued about the upcoming loafers. Browsing the Alden thread for so long has made me a fan of loafers, finally. Never was a fan of the style, but I've really come around to them but have yet to acquire any. I imagine a good pair must be supremely comfortable after a while, too.

    Forgive me if this has been covered previously, but what leathers and colors can we expect in the GS loafer? I'm sure there'll be a pair for me in the initial offerings. Looking forward to it!

    @GrantStone are the suede loafers lined or unlined?

    Thanks. Thought I'd read that entire last page, but somehow must have glossed right over the pertinent post.

    They are lined. We sampled this pattern unlined to start but felt they were a bit too unstructured for everyday, long term wear. Especially using the materials we are, such as chromexcel. That being said, I really wanted these to have a soft, forgiving feeling and they do. Hopefully we found a good medium.

    This is a delightful color and very attractive. I'm in!

    Sorry, missed this. Are these lined or unlined?

    Also, I know this is a super bizarre request, but will you ever consider doing an MTO with a custom cutout in the penny slot?

    In the pic they look almost as dark as the Crimson pair I had. But in reality Dune is a nice medium brown that is exactly what I was looking for. A very versatile color for a longwing blucher.

    Just curious: what do folks take in Grant Stone Leo last vs. Alden TruBalance? Same size?

    In our experience, most will take the same size but some would go up into a E width if they want a similar fit. The trubalance is fuller than the Leo.

    Same size but Leo is significantly tighter for me. I’m an an E width brannock. I would definitely benefit from E width Leo
