    I wear a C width and sometimes (depending on the last), I can wear a B width. An A would super narrow, thus an AA would be outrageously narrow! Seriously. If you can't wear an A width, don't even think about an AA.

    On most alden lasts, I wear a full half size down from what I wear in the majority of other brands. Width is the same though, so I'm guessing that AA is pretty darn skinny.

    Thanks, dudes.

    I usually wear D, and have worn C/B in Alden slip ons. I also have AAA vintage Lloyd & Haig shell PTBs that I stretched for months and that I can wear with the laces loose. So I'm wondering if I can make do.

    Course, seller doesn't take returns, so....

    Did we ever figure out who makes Brooks Brothers made in Italy blazer?

    I have the softest nicest BB blazer that feels like cashmere or Cashmere/Wool. It has a made in Italy tag.

    Here are pics of tags.

    Those aren't Lardini tags though. No clue who's.

    It may be BB's tag, but I doubt BB makes them in Italy. Doesn't someone in Italy make them for BB?
