Hey, I picked up this pair of Brooks Brothers shoes which I believe are Aldens. They're basically identical to a pair of Alden 683 Loafers that I picked up, including nail pattern on the heel. However, the sizing format printed in the Brooks Bros shoes are inconsistent with the Aldens (Don't have the over/under format on width) and they don't have the "683" style number. I just wanted to confirm what I have here! Would these designations change because they're for Brooks? Thanks!

Those are definitely Aldens. They are made on the Aberdeen last and just labeled as Brooks Brothers (this is actually done by Alden). Great shoes, I hope that they fit you well and that you are able to enjoy them!
