Odd? qu'est-que c'est?
I was wondering if any of you could give me some input on my go to loafers. I can't afford AE $500+ loafers (since I'm a full time college student with no job) but they are the best I have. I was hoping for some input and some suggestions for what to go with for next time.
I have penny loafers as well for more casual days.
I have handgrade version, Cleveland. Great shoe. Your pair looks just as nice if not nicer
Lindricks last, how does it compare to c&j 341?
like the pic
I believe the 348 is actually the bench grade (machine manufactured) version of the 337 which means it is longer but narrower than the 341.
Are you saying that the 337 and 348 are essentially the same last? I am pretty certain this is not the case.
I believe youll find the 348 maybe the bench grade version of the 358 handgrade ??? both being longer and narrower than the 341.
AE shoes don't go as expensive as $500. Why don't you try them during their Thanksgiving sale, or try the AE Outlet during that time. You can get some nice shoes for under $200. Good luck to you.
Regarding the C&J lasts. Burton you are correct that the 348 is longer and sleeker than the 341. But the in the handgrades the 358 appears to be the equivalent to the benchgrade's 348 as best I can tell.
Here's a link to the CJ catalog which should answer all the questions except the question regarding the RL Lindrick's last. There is a thread for the Lindricks and their brethren. I bet the last information is on that thread somewhere.

Isshi, you're officially my enemy now
I had those Stetson crocs in my sight for some time on eBay, but the berk of a seller was not so willing to add more pics or info on them. I gave up -- only to see that they were indeed beauts and now in your hairy hands. Grrr.
