i would consider the second hand market. ebay and our sales forum.

unless you're barrie 10 D, in that case used shoes are disgusting.

nothing plain about 990s. such an awesome shoe. nice buy.

i wear bb lhs and van lasted loafers tts. bbs fit my feet better.

Not sure about the cap toes. Pretty sure the tassels are on Aberdeen last and the PTB are on Barrie.

I can never remember brooks lasts- don't count out snap, copley and leydon as possibilities here. Sorry OP- I don't know the answer with any certainty without searching.

I don't know the BB lasts that well. Some are made in lasts exclusive to BB. Email Alden and they will almost certainly reply with a few days.

general@aldenshoe.com

I sent them a note about the BB Black Fleece Shell LWB and they confirmed it was in the Grant last within a couple of days.

Yep, contacting Alden is the safest way to confirm about the last!

Guys I am thinking of a black shell penny loafer
Alden 987 can last or the brooks brothers low vamp shell cordovan penny loafer or the unlined one which I figured was just like the 987 but unlined
Any suggestions on the difference. I normally wear a 11 in a Barrie last ans 11.5 in most other brands was thinking 11.5 here to
