    You're right. BB needs to fix the listing then.

    Black suede doesn't seem like a good idea for a shoe to me.

    It's definitely different. I think it could be cool as a captoe or as a wholecut or even as a slipper to be worn with formal attire. However, for day-to-day use I agree it isn't ideal. I find black suede to be a novelty at best.

    I suspect those BBBF nubuck longwings are from Grenson.
    I've got a pair of navy/white BBBF longwings which were made by Grenson. They run slightly large.

    Thanks. I'm a size 9 in Wolverines, guess the 9.5D won't work out.

    I would much prefer navy, tan, or brown.

    Black suede loafers are badass. I think I will wear some tomorrow and report back. You naysayers are doing it wrong.

    If this one is part of the post-Father's Day sale it's the one I will be buying most likely.

    Although I like this a lot, too:

    Is Regent slimmer than Fitzgerald?

    In some ways, but not others. Fitzgerald is slimmer in the chests/shoulders and has higher arm holes than the Regent. Regent is slimmer in the pants and waist of the jacket.

    Is this only on the sale items? Most of that stuff has been picked pretty clean, but there are a few current season items I wouldn't mind getting.

    usually sale items. BB removes a bunch of stuff from the site a week in advance and then all these "new" items appear for the sale. its a Brooks Brothers miracle
