The full-straps are the only loafers I ever wear with a suit (and I do it regularly), so yes I do think they are a step up in formality. As another poster mentioned, i think this has less to do with the strap, and more to do with the shape and profile of the shoe. Though I wear all kinds of loafers regularly, I will never wear LHS, penny, horse-bit, etc. loafers with a suit. My full straps might be my favorite shoes actually, I find the style to be very versatile,...

Are these the same thing, just re-branded as BB? Are there any other differences? Also, does the BB burgundy = Color #8? Thanks
Looking to grab some full-strap alden loafers or similar styled shoes in size 10.5 D (10.5 B/D if Alden) I am open to all colors, and conditions as long as the price is appropriate. I would also be fine with either calf or cordovan. Here are examples of what I am looking for: http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._cordovan.html http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=§ionsize= http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=§ionsize=

I have a pair of Gucci shoes stamped "43 EJ" on the bottom...they fit me well, but I purchased them from a buddy. I am trying to figure out what US size these shoes translate to. First issue is that I can't seem to find out what "EJ" stands for...is it some sort of width measurement? Second issue is that I am finding conflicting reports as to what the 43 means, does 43 translate to a 9.5? Thanks
Size 42, Navy color brand new, no flaws...tags still attached got this as a gift but waited too long so i can't return
I am a true 41r so I fall between the two sizes. For the beaufort I size up to 42r. This works well. Since this is a longer coat that can be worn over a blazer, the added room comes in handy. When I am wearing just a shirt underneath, I have still not found the 42 to be large or boxy...I think this is because the coat is heavy material that falls/drapes nicely. For the bedale I size down to 40r, this is a shorter coat that you can't really wear over a blazer. Also...
