Where's the price?

Judging from the pics it doesn't look like the color/dye jobs are very high quality. The cognac looks spotty, and not intentionally so.
Close, but no cigar.

My apologies. Great explanation. Carry on. :)

As you know I will ;- )
How wide are these shoes? Also how comfortable are the shoes from this brand? I have wide feet and I am wondering if it would be similar to the Allen Edmonds I have?
As a lady who resorts to men shoes for a favorable intersection of style, price, and quality - please consider size 7s in the future.
On behalf of all shorter men, screw this drop for starting at size 8

I hear your pain and trust me that we're trying to address it -- We are working with their other brand Luca Andreoli, and those start at US 7. Be on the lookout for more drops from them in the meantime.

Please refer to Randy Newman.
The Tan model shows an elastic band. It is absent in the Cognac and Black pics. Can someone with a pair verify if it is there?

Idk whether to order the Tan or Cognac color. Please share pics if you all have any.

Appreciate you and @djaung sharing your pics! I just received my pair in Cognac. A little tight, but not uncomfortable for my 10.5E feet. Very happy they fit because they are gorgeous! Now I'm waiting for my Loake Buckingham and hoping they bring back the Carminas!
I just noticed that on my 6 month old pair. I'd bet these are seconds!
I am interested in these, but a little worried about the leather quality. Could anybody please tell what kind of leather they use .

I have these in tan, and overall I am impressed. The leather quality is pretty good, but it is not on the same level as Alden or Allen Edmonds. It appears to be a full grain leather. Lexol and regular polishing has kept the leather in good shape. The leather outsole is pretty good as well. It did seem to wear through a little faster than my Allen Edmonds. I'll be sending out for a resole in the next couple of weeks, and will be interested in getting my cobbler's take on them at that point.
For the price, totally worth it to me.
Mike1233
so what ended up being your cobbler's take? Can you please share a few pics? Debating between getting the tan and cognac.
Will a TTS fit be snug after break-in?
Anyone knows what kinda sizing these shoes have? I've totally no clue on how to pick the sizing.

I'm a 10.5 D on a Brannock, and a 10.5 D in a Allen Edmonds 65 last. I purchased these in 10.5 and they fit very well.
Hi, does anyone know how much the shoe costed when the drop closed? Thanks
I'm as impressed with these as I am with my wingtips. This company is truly a gem, and the best bang-for-your buck shoe company out there (my previous was best value regardless of price was Carmina).
Quality of materials and craftsmanship easily exceeds Allen Edmonds - even on sale / clearance.
I'll buy any shoe from this company without hesitation.

This is based on the 15 pairs of AEs that I have and the 40+ pairs that I have had to return due to QC issues - poor pinking, poor/uneven burnishing, misaligned quarters, heels coming off with minimal wear, misaligned heels, crooked caps, cracked medallions, etc, etc, etc. But to your point - I would agree that raw quality of AE is still a bit higher, but Quality/Price of the NNs is much higher IMO.
For the last pair of Chilli McAllister's that I bought, I went through 5 pairs before finally getting one that was acceptable - these were "first quality" shoes
Needless to say, I don't buy AEs anymore.
I'll take a $125 pair of NNs over a $200 clearance + sale AE any day.

I have more than a dozen AE shoes including some factory seconds that I could hardly tell the reason why they are seconds. I have not experienced such widespread QC issues. I have returned/exchanged for 3-4 times due to QC or fit issues, but nothing as bad as yours, not even close. I would not have bought that many AE shoes if the quality is so bad obviously.
BTW, I still have not had a chance to try these NN shoes, since my shoe size is 7.5D US. Maybe next drop.
I wear a size 13 and these shoes fit very well and are very comfortable right out of the box, no breaking in required. Love the style, color and quality. Very well made, Italian quality. The color is perfect for today's' style. The color is light enough and can be darkened and shaded with different shoe polishes if one chooses to do so.
If I order true to size will they be snug after break in or loose? I can't stand loafer that fit loose after break-in.
Sizes are too big?!
1/2 sizes as well?
PLS bring these back - very happy with my wingtips :)

I'm used to wearing 8.5 UK (perfect fit) or 42 EU (with minimal room), what would you say fits me? From Nico Nerini's website, 42 EU = 9 US, but from AE's website, 42 EU = 8.5 US and 8 UK while 43 EU = 9 US and 8.5 UK. Would you say 9 US having the better fit? From where I come from, 8.5 UK = 9.5 US. Man this is pretty confusing...
Thanks for sharing your pics mate, I decided to go with the cognac. After seeing them you also had me wishing for the walnut Strands. Brooks Brothers had them for around $200 last week. You know I jumped on that! Sadly I got an email couple days after saying they went out of stock.
I've received my loafers yesterday. Ordered a US12 since I'm a 12D in various Allen Edmonds lasts and Ferregamos and 11E in Alfred Sargents. I have to say, a very very tight fit where the vamp gets "tucked in" slightly but a fit nonetheless, dreading the break-in. (If anyone is a half size up, willing to trade).
No QC issues in how the shoe is made. A steal at this price. The only thing I am very disappointed in is the patina/color. There seems to be a weak black coat over both shoes although darker on my right foot than my left. Doesn't give it a darker look...just makes them look dirty. There's also a random dark circular spot at where my pinky toe would be on the right foot.
My issues might be a one off as everything else was well constructed. If anyone is looking for a pair of decent beater shoes, I would buy this without much hesitation. With the sun out, I'm primarily planning to use this as a day drinking or casual day shoe and this fits the bill perfectly without damaging the wallet too much!

Hi there! Thanks for your review on these loafers -- I like the idea of a day drinking shoe btw ;)

Did someone say it's Happy Hour?
Just received my loafers I ordered a 9 US, size wise they are perfect. I didn't wear them yet but they look very well made, all the bells and whistles - Goodyear welt, stitched outer sole, brass nails in the heal, etc. The negative for us Canadian, is the extra duty fees at delivery - for me it was an extra 50$ ....I would say that massdrop would post prices with all fees included, other site do it very succesfuly.
Can massdrop staff give comments on comfort or brand comparisons?
I'm concerned by how much quality was compromised being mass produced in India
How do these compare to AE??
onfeezy
I'm not sure, but I expect it to be lower than my Strands, Flat Irons, and Fifth Avenues. I like the style, but not enough to splurge on the Grayson's. I'm pulling the trigger since I expect these will work with my earth tone dress slacks and khakis. I would love to see these in burgundy or a medium -> dark brown patina.
Pricing and product seems great! I nearly pulled the trigger, but tan is one of the most un-versatile colours around.
If this was offered in a dark brown, burgundy or even navy blue, I would already be on board.

Tan is the least versatile common shoe colour in classic men's style as it is strictly casual unfortunately.
darthsid
says who?
Does anyone know how good the quality of their shoes is?
Any notes on what the width is?

Standard D width
No chance of these being available in black, is there?
EEL01
Not this time around, but if there's enough interest we can approach the vendor for future drops and see what we can do.

I also vote for black. Tan shoes are the most misworn item in men's wear today.
Is the sizing in US or UK?
Also, no US 7/UK 6 sizes available? ☹️
ngster98
Sizes are in US sizing. Checkout options will be corrected soon to reflect this. No sizes below US 8 this time around, i'm sorry. :(
TomasV
Ah. Thanks!
