Wide range of sizes for both black and burgundy - and both regular and tassel loafers are on the sale. D width.

To channel Andy, as BB are a sponsor, please go through the BB link on this site.

Edited to add: thanks to @WatchmanJimG I note that these are not necessarily Aldens. They're described as Made in the USA or Italy. If you can confirm via phone or email that the specific size/colour you want are Made in the USA, then they're a bargain. But if they're made in Italy - well, the onsite reviews are not favourable. (Note correlation between dating of reviews and grading of reviews - newer, worse.)

The bad news: No penny loafers in my size.
The good news: My cc balance is safe for the moment.

Actually the loafers on sale are dominantly Aldens because BB is phasing out Alden in favor of an Italian made "own" brand.

The cordovans are Alden's in tassel (invented by Alden) and unlined moccasins.

I bought calf Alden tassels at a good price. I'm not aware of other Aldens remaining except these models.

Unfortunately, for narrower foot "me" 'D' widths don't work (tassels come in 'C', Aberdeen last but likely sold out ... unlineds are Van last, wider, BBB carries only 'D' if any left).

Brooks still has limited C&J bench grade but I think these are leaving as well since the cap toes I tried in 'D' (too large) are history. They still have full strap loafers, only 'D'.

Brooks is not doing themselves any favors with the quality drop but may be to buyers advantage if they have your size.
