Ralph Lauren Darlton Loafer, a forum favorite, made by Crocket & Jones. Size 9.0 D. Fits 9.0 true to size if worn with thin or no socks. I only wore these twice and they were worn by another forum member a few times. Excellent condition. Selling since they do not fit me, too tight. Heel and toe taps have been installed. Asking $270 shipped in US, Paypal personal only.
Time for some new aldens...thanks to leather soul. Simple but classy, I love the plaza last:
Sorry forum police, didn't realize it was that strict around here, I was just trying to answer the question so everyone is clear on sizing. Price has been dropped. For comparison I Have quoddy boat shoes in size 9d, which fit me and are considered basically true to size. These loafers seem to fit true to size, in that the 9.5s are a bit big on me.
This is not correct. These fit true to size with thin socks or bare feet. That's why I am now selling them. I wear a 9D in aldens and these loafers are too long even with socks.

Definetly not tight - sizing up an entire size would not be reasonable, but a half size seems perfect in these.

They appear to have taken a brighter shine than in Tom's pics on the blog (no offense Tom). The kidskin is is a very subtle pattern and you hardly see it unless you look closely. It also creases a bit more then typical Alden calf. I just had shined them up, so they look pretty damn nice
