    My first pair of Aldens was #8 unlined loafers from Brooks in Pittsburgh, where I grew up. I didn't know what shell cordovan leather was and had never heard of Alden. I just liked the look. The price was about $75- I am dating myself. It was the late 1970's or early 1980's. My next pairs were...

    Looking to make my first purchase from Brogue. On the checkout page is a line for a discount code. Anyone have one? Or know how often they are active?

    For me, tts for Aberdeen tie shoes. Down a half for Aberdeen loafers. I thought that was standard advice, but these posts say otherwise ...

    I have Brooks Brothers unlined #8 shell lhs loafers in 8.5 D, and they are snug. My Brannock size is 9.25 D. A Brooks 9D is a little loose, so I accept being wedged in to a 8.5D. I don't like loafers flopping around on my feet. Unlined shell is of course more pliable than lined, so over time...

    Or are they the Brooks version? If Brogue, Plaza. If Brooks, M75. As far as I am aware, the last is the only difference. In my experience, the M75 runs a little bit longer.

    Kid suede comes from goats. I called Alden to double check, and it is the case. The nap is different, and I prefer it to calf suede.

    Some idle speculation: Since the Brooks Brothers - Alden relationship seems to have ended completely (for now anyway), and Brooks no doubt was Alden's biggest customer, that means Alden now has excess manufacturing capacity due to the reduced demand. Purely a guess, but let's say the Brooks...
