    I believe its the MacNeil because its very similar to the Alden Longwing.

    I think they're equivalent to the new longwings in the "Independence" collection.

    I'm confused, is the RL Sanderson an AE MacNeil or an Alden Longwing? I keep hearing conflicting information,

    RL Sandersons are made by AE. They are on a different last and have a different pattern than AEs stock MacNeil longwing. Polo does not carry any shoes made by Alden.

    Many thanks, I didn't think that RL carried Alden products but when I hear "Longwings" I automatically think of the Alden Longwing.

    Got some sandersons and I think they are amazing. I like the last better than AE's, the leather seems slightly better and the double leather soles are a nice touch. Probably not worth the premium at retail but on sale they are a steal!

    I picked up some Slaton Calf Cap-toes at the latest sale. Great deal on sale, but at regular price not nearly the quality as my Aldens.

    Are the Slaton's double leather soled also? The RL mansion didn't have most of the "made in USA" shoes in stores and had to order my sandersons for me. Similarly, they didn't have any Slatons in stock.

    I found some Singleton loafers today that had a white nubuck toe section (not the entire upper, just the section on the top of the foot). They don't seem to be AE, but does anyone know for sure?

    I'm guessing they may be that company bought by AE?

    Saw a pair of Sandersons walnut on sale today for $250.
    They are identical to AE's Larchmonts.

    I have received Ralph Lauren Saunders from amazon. Top quality and flawless as most of RL shoes. I have Sanderson wingtip and singleton penny in US8 D. They are narrow as. Specially Sanderson wingtip. And I went through a painful process stretching them. My perfect size is US8 EEE. So I ordered the Saunders boot in US 8.5 D to compensate my wide feet. Holly *hit. These are even narrower than Sanderson wingtip and still a bit tight around the toe area. They will stretch eventually after 10-20 wears(double leather sole). It will be a painful process. Even though these Rl shoes are marked as D but they are more of a B .I am waiting for Slaton Cap Toe to arrive. Will report back about the fit .I have ordered US8.5 D on them … hopefully they are not too narrow as the other RL shoes.
