I ordered a pair of the cordovan venetian loafers from Brooks Brothers during the 30% off corporate card sale.
I intended to order the tan, but my salesperson ordered them in black. The black ones really look great, but I don't need a black loafer. I called BB customer service and now have a tan pair on the way. Now that I've seen the black ones in person, I'm even more excited about the tan ones.
If anyone is interested in the black cordovan venetian loafer in an 8.5D, I'd be happy to sell them for my cost including tax ($492.54) plus the cost to ship to you.
i have multiple pairs of the Rancourt shell Venitians and Beef Rolls. The tan/caramel color is fantastic, my favorite Rancourt shell color. It ages really well, and gets great patina.
