I wear them with dark indigo jeans and a white blazer. I'm starting to think the PCT JCrew boot or even the Cap Toe color 8 from Unionmade would be better with that outfit.

This seems about $50 cheaper than similar shoes

Any idea why?

I would likely pay the extra to get this pair. Thoughts also on the style?

I thought that the foxing on the back of the Alden for Brooks Brothers tassel loafers was unique to that particular shoe.

Since when did Alden start using the same foxing on other models?

Repp, their site does look great. Photos like Frans or Leffot. Their prices look insane 1,000,000 units of money!!! I could totally hear my wife... You spent 1,000,000 on them?!?!?

Currency is Korean Won. FX rate is around US$1 to 1030 Won. Plus I believe Unipair gives 10% vat deduction for non Korean orders. Still expensive though...

I figured it was about a 1000:1 ratio working there. But 1,000,000 seems like an insane price to pay for shoes... :-)

PSA: I noticed this morning that Citishoes added #8 NST boots (Barrie) on commando to their inventory.  I thought someone was recently asking where to snag a pair.  Apologies if this is common knowledge, but I don't remember seeing them on their website the last time I checked.

If I'm not mistaken, the full strap loafer has the foxing as well, regardless if it is by BB or Alden.

 

Doesn't seem to be as exclusive of a feature as it once was.

The Full-Strap loafer definitely has the foxing, but the traditional Alden Tassel does not. It's the distinguishing factor between the Alden and the Alden x BB Tassel.
