    Who are you asking? I'm guessing it's @Loafer28

    Okay--I know it's not me, because I don't have any Cordovan. But I've been thinking about getting a pair of something in Cordovan--but not sure what. I'm shortest on loafers. But I'm not sure I want to spend $600 plus on loafers. I was thinking AE Daltons--but I already have about eight pairs of AE shoes.

    I've seen that you can sometimes get even the shell shoes from AE for 30-40 percent off. I rarely see Alden on sale and when I do, it's usually limited sizes. So, if price is a consideration, there's that.



    Also, I have too many shoes.
    Intentionally overdressed for almost every occasion.

    If you are asking me, I don’t mind answering, because I own all three. My favorites happen to be the Patriots. They have a classic American loafer look that’s not too sleek and not too chunky. The Alden’s suffer somewhat from the latter, but they are beautiful in there own way. The Randolph are definitely dressier which is why I reach for them less. I do like all three, so you couldn’t go wrong with any of them.

    I picked up the Patriots from the Shoebank during a sale and they were close to $350 (I still see them drop close to that occasionally). The Alden’s were a recent score when brooks brothers clearing them out (this was a HUGE deal). I paid close to $420. The Randolph’s were an EBay find for $150, barely worn.

    Hope this helps. Maybe I can get some pics up tomorrow

    Edit: I just noticed the Patriot Second are on the Shoebank for $375. Not too bad!

    So far, I love them. The color is a nice medium shade of brown, and they're pretty comfortable right out of the box. One shoe is a little squeaky, but I've had that happen with my boots before only for it to go away, so I'm hoping that's what'll happen with these shoes too.

    Left to right:

    Patriots in brown, Alden unlined #8, Randolph burgundy.

    I prefer the Patriot because the toe box walls are a little lower and the toe tapers a bit more than the Alden’s. The Alden color is awesome, though.
