I wear a C width and sometimes (depending on the last), I can wear a B width.  An A would super narrow, thus an AA would be outrageously narrow!  Seriously.  If you can't wear an A width, don't even think about an AA.

On most alden lasts, I wear a full half size down from what I wear in the majority of other brands. Width is the same though, so I'm guessing that AA is pretty darn skinny.

Thanks, dudes.

I usually wear D, and have worn C/B in Alden slip ons. I also have AAA vintage Lloyd & Haig shell PTBs that I stretched for months and that I can wear with the laces loose. So I'm wondering if I can make do.

Course, seller doesn't take returns, so....

Did we ever figure out who makes Brooks Brothers made in Italy blazer?

I have the softest nicest BB blazer that feels like cashmere or Cashmere/Wool. It has a made in Italy tag.

Here are pics of tags.

It may be BB's tag, but I doubt BB makes them in Italy.  Doesn't someone in Italy make them for BB?

EDIT: Thanks @Cj52racers , I have since taken the request to PM with @DanM and @highvoltorb .

 

Sorry for any issues and thanks for helping a noob like me :fistbump:
