    Can anyone determine if these are Aldens, perchance? I think they may be mis-listed on ebay and I'm wondering whether I should just drop the small amount on them (under $40) and find out. [​IMG][/IMG] edit: they look a bit like these . [​IMG]

    My size, but I can't imagine when I'd ever wear a black tassel loafer...

    how did anyone recognize these on ebay? i mean thed listing is titled 'mens dress shoes'

    They were listed by the same seller who had the original ones I asked about. Apparently he ended up w/ a couple pairs of Aldens and didn't know what he had.

    If anybody wants the size 11 pair you can have them for what I paid + shipping cost (around $40ish total).

    They look like Alden, and they also look suspiciously like cordovan.

    If you're correct I'm going to be quite happy next week when they arrive [​IMG]

    Top pic looks like cordovan, the bottom 'edited' in pic does not. Did you ever receive the pair you bought?

    The vast majority of BB US made shoes are from Alden. They have been for years.
