Actually it was thru my dealings with Emmanuel that I came to know of Perry. I do not know Perry. Yes, I have used Emmanuel before. Emmanuel reached out to me prior to his move to Canada to let me know of his new home.
^^ As for loafers, if between sizes I say go for the smaller size. In my experience, a loafer too large eventually doesn't get worn, whereas, a loafer slightly too small will typically stretch out, and, after awhile, actually become the ideal size.
