Anyone seen these in the flesh? Looks like it could be a nice alternative. I like my old Cayman IIs in both corrected grain and calf leather. They come in wides too.

I haven't seen those before. Thanks for pointing them out. They offer a dark brown, too, which can be hard to find. However, although they say they come in wide, when I select 10.5 E, it says "not available." :(

I have no input to provide on the new ones, other than the image of the new ones in burgundy doesn't look so good to me, with the high contrast, light colored stitching.

But I do like my old Cayman IIs.

I found the "Cordo Brush-Off" to be a good low maintenance finish, even though they are slightly corrected and glazed. The uppers are good and thick.

The E width is perfect with my forefoot, but the heel is not sloppy wide, and gives a good fit with my narrow heel. Sort of an unmarked combination last.

I thought that was odd, too. Especially since the other two colors don't have it.

I like it.

But if I buy one more pair of loafers somebody's gonna put me an a room that's painted beige and doesn't have a doorknob on the inside.

Good thing you have so many loafers, I hear they take away your shoelaces in those sorts of places.

No need for the paranoia.

They look very nice. How's the leather quality?

Looks okay to me. About what you'd expect for $138.

Made in the Dominican Republic, by the way

Looks good. The last version, or at least the ones that I have had, both the Cayman II and the beefroll, were made in the D.R. as well.

What does "brush-off" mean with regard to the leather?
