First of all, these Brooks Brothers Tassel Loafers are not the Alden-made version; they're the 1818 Footwear version made in Italy. The description on the Brooks Brothers site implies that they're made on the same last as the Alden-made Tassels, and they do look pretty similar (except for the BB Logo tastefully embossed on the tongues, of course).

Secondly, the color is Burgundy, not Brown (the ad interface makes you pick a color, but Burgundy is not an option).

This is a really well-made shoe, and very comfortable to wear. If only they had a size that actually fit me, I wouldn't be selling them at all.

I would say these shoes fit more like a 10D than a 9.5D. They only come in a D width, and after I got them, I thought they were a bit long, so I went to my local BB store and tried on a pair of 9Ds. I found that the 9Ds were good length-wise, but they were too tight in the forefoot, so I kept these.

These are good width-wise for me, but as mentioned above are a bit too long. (I'm a 9.5E Brannock.) I thought that with heavier socks they'd be OK, but that hasn't turned out to be the case. (Several comments on the BB site suggest that they run a half a size large, and I'd have to agree.)

I've only worn this pair outside 3 or 4 times, and you can tell by the pictures that they're been well-cared-for; they've been stored on trees, in their dust bags, since I bought them. The Brooks Brothers branded dust bags (pictured) and the original box (but no trees) will be included with purchase.

$175 gets them shipped to you anywhere in the Continental US (Alaska and Hawaii residents; please PM for shipping estimate).
