    Thanks!

    Don't know too much about these ones, but they're called the Bennet and was originally $225, but I got them for ~$55 at Nordstrom Rack couple years ago. Definitely like these guys and have been trying to wear them more often.

    They're cemented, as far as I can tell, but cemented well. Stitching is nice and neat and the leather is actually pretty decent. It's not some corrected grain/painted cheap leather. Reasonably thick and soft feeling. leather lined as well. The leather and construction quality is very similar to my Banana Republic Wyatt Italian leather single monks (review of those on dappered main site if you don't have first hand experience with those), but maybe a bit more supple feeling.

    Definitely wouldn't buy at full price, but worth it under 100. Comfortable, too.

    As far as sizing goes, I'd say size up? These are an 8.5 and they fit my 8W feet perfectly, only about an inch past my big toe, but an 8.5 length foot would have to be pretty pointy to be comfortable crammed all the way to the front.

    They look good. A friend of mine has some Gordon Rush loafers he likes. They seem to have a lot of decent-looking shoes.

    How do you like yours? I know you can find them at different price points depending on where you get them--I am assuming they are different lines.

    Do you know much about them? I haven't run into much information on this brand. But I haven't looked much.
