If you're trying to infer that their support is in India or something, wrong.

 

Brooks Bros support is done out of Enfield, CT., USA.

Kelly Ann either didn't know what you were asking or was told to say Alden didn't make the shoes... Alden has made BB's cordovan shoes for decades and still do. They are branded "Brooks Brothers" similar to how Ralph Lauren Crocket and Jones are branded "Ralph Lauren." Fashion brands (Ralph Lauren, BB) tend not to want to let people know who their suppliers are (which Alden is in this case), and technically, Brooks Brothers may "design" these shoes (they may have their own last, be unlined, have brass eyelets, whatever), so technically, she may be right. However, the cordovan loafers are Alden, don't worry

FWIW I have the BB LHS Loafers in Black Cordovan and the Alden LHS in #8 and the sizing is different.  9.5D in BB (True to size) and 9C in Alden.  Different Lasts perhaps.  The Alden's also seem like they could be heavier, but I haven't actually weighed them, and they also might be stiffer, although they are newer.

 

 

Edit: I also have the Peal & Co for BB Penny Loafers in Brown Calf in 9.5D and they are more narrow than the other two loafers I mentioned.  Almost couldn't wear em but they've stretched now.

Perhaps some of their support is US based, but certainly not all.

"In 2010 Brooks Brothers will be closing its current and long running location in Edison, NJ, which is the call center and online customer service location and will re-open in Enfield, CT."

 

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooks_Brothers

 

And:

 

 

"BrooksBrothers maintains its call center and customer service headquarters in Enfield because of the workforce, location, and quality of life."

 

 

 

From: http://www.enfield-ct.gov/content/91/12798/160/5399.aspx

 

 

 

Since you inferred it's in India, methinks the burden of proof is on you to prove that.

Thanks for the props on the sizing chart guys! I just hope it helps some people nail the right fit.

It's a good chart. There's a few oddball lasts not on it, but all the usual suspects are there smile.gif

So you really don't know what that word means.
