    For once I'm not sad that Nordy's only carries D and wider. :P

    I like wholecuts, but I really don't like the way the "U" shaped throat/vamp is cut. The creasing and wrinkling of the edges around the lacing is just not appealing. If they were a simple V or a line, like the way most other makers do it, I might like this model a lot more.

    Agreed. Not a fan of wholecuts in general and not a fan of the brogue design on that. AE made a good decision when they decided to split that shoe into two parts and create both the Cornwallis and the Carlyle.

    Mind you, the Cornwallis could use a name change.

    To me the purpose of a wholecut it to be as clean as possible, with as few lines as possible, zero preferably (some wholecuts don't even have a seam behind the heel). Adding that broguing goes against the concept.
