      Same! I bought them in bourbon as they were being discontinued. They're my favorite AE's.

        If my size were more commonly made and i wouldnt have to wait a year and a half for a pair to be made, I'd be flat broke. :P

          I have too many shoes in multiple colors (and too many shoes overall):

          - AE Strand [walnut leather + snuff suede]
          - AE McAllister [brown + merlot]
          - AE Dundee 2.0 [snuff suede + loden suede]
          - AE Dalton [bourbon + just bought it in walnut at the Rediscover America sale for my first AE in two and a half years, along with the Neumok listed below]
          - AE Neumok [green leather + just bought it in cherry suede/reverse kudu]

          When you hear that I also own an Allen Edmonds McTavish (in cognac Dublin leather) and am inevitably going to pick up a Strandmok one day (perhaps in the new leather/wool options, but I would love for the old dark blue/navy to come back), you realize I own a ludicrous amount of AE brogues.

          I also own two pairs of Timberland boat shoes, one in black and the other in a sort of cognac brown, that are almost a decade old but still holding up. And two functionally identical pairs of BR suede bucks that officially have different names: the Caden in chocolate/dark brown suede and the Owen in grey suede.

              If you're close to a normal size, Brick + Mortar usually can special order anything along with their makeups. Not that hard.

                    I have the Beckett Simonon Volta in black and the Brent in oxblood. Or maybe it's the other way around. They're both so similar.

                      I own 4 pair of Nike Killshots in various colors. None of my dress shoes are the same. Taking it a step further I own multiple colors of Uniqlo's merino sweaters in various colors.

                        You'll be glad to know then that I recently ordered several more pairs of shoes that would be second or third colors of a style:

                        - AE Strand in chili weave [would be #3 after walnut + brown suede]
                        - AE McAllister in bourbon [would be #3 after brown + merlot]
                        - AE Cornwallis in coffee [would be #2 after walnut]
                        - AE Carlyle in coffee [would be #2 after bourbon]

                        I'm not going to keep all - for one thing, I only ordered the Carlyle because I got an e-mail from AE saying that they ran out of the Cornwallis and wouldn't be shipping it. But after I ordered the Carlyle, they shipped the Cornwallis!

                        Anyway, the first three should arrive tomorrow and the Carlyle sometime after that. I also ordered the Nomad chukka in spice brown.

                        My recent shoe purchasing has been out of control! But between June 2018 and the moment boredom really hit in April 2020 after a month of barely leaving the house, I had only bought one pair of shoes (Grant Stone long-wing in dune/natural chromexcel. Talking of which there is definitely a chance that I will at least order some more Grant Stone during their Labor Day sale and that would likely include another long-wing, either in coffee suede or crimson chromexcel). I promised my wife that on 1 December - the day after Cyber Monday - I will go on a purchasing hiatus for a few months. She understands, though: it is not as though we are spending money on much else, other than takeout. We usually have a big trip each summer and a small trip each winter, but instead only had two nights away camping this summer and won't travel at all this winter.

                        Oh, here's what you get if you reverse the OP and ask how many color ways do you own in multiple styles, for me:

                        AE walnut: 3 [Strand, Cornwallis, Dalton]
                        AE bourbon: 2 [Carlyle, Dalton] + McAllister en route
                        Beckett Simonon bordeaux: 2 [Hoyt double monk strap, Nolan brogue boot - akin to the AE Dalton]
                        AE brown: 2 [McAllister, Kenilworth]

                          AE Exchange Place in black and brown. A discontinued model, basically a Park Place with a slightly sleeker last.

                            Love this, not least because this one actually allows me to participate, too

                            AE Walnut: 2 [Strand, Carlyle]
                            AE Chili/Dark Chili: 2 [Dalton, McAllister]

                              I have two pairs of the J. Crew Macalister desert boots in different colors. I switch between them every other day at work during the spring and summer. I just ordered a second pair of the Kenton cap toe boots in a different color, and I'll do the same with them in the fall and winter. It keeps things very simple.
