Yeah, on this board A&E might be taken for Abercrombie & Ew!I presume you are getting the model numbers from inside a pair of A&E loafers you possess. How old are those loafers? Perhaps the model numbers have changed. I agree with TK167, a phone call might be the best approach.
Incidentally why is Allen Edmonds called A&E and not simply AE? I have seen other references to this abbreviation, so it seems to be a general practice.
