Looks like 9 and 11.5 in the clearance section for $200. Made in the US - maybe Alden?

I opened this expecting a strip of sock material sewn onto the lower sleeve.
I have a variety of tree styles. The funny thing is that on some of my shoes that are narrower through the toe box (i.e. AE Thayer) , I find my cheap Johnston and Murphy's do a better job. They're the ones with a claw back and a spongy triangular, single-piece toe. My split toes trees don't fill as well.

I like these. Got them since I've been on a modest budget: http://www.tmlewin.co.uk/product.asp...oesBrown!25104
are they suede? they look the brooks loafers on clearance. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...-NU4859254343#
i've been quoted around 75 dollars. but, all the tailors in my little town are absolute shite. so, i have no idea if that's good.

^^ I agree that they are definitely European in style. It's hard for me to compare them to AE though. My AE's are heavier, Goodyear-welted, and seem like they'll last forever with resoling and proper maintenance. And they're styled more conservatively. On the other hand, my Magnanni's are lighter, either Blake- or Bologna-constructed, and are styled more modernly. I do not expect them to last beyond a few years. But they are comfortable as hell. That said, I bought each...
