Any interest in a GMTO of a navy shell SWB on the 240 last (the BB Peal SWB), similar to this:

IMO the Vincent is actually the nicest RTW english tassel loafer, I love the slightly oversized tassels.
I already have the Cavendish in D.Brown Suede and Snuff Suede (MTO) so I have to pass, If Burgundy was available it would have been an instakop.

Follow-up question: how does 363 compare to 348 (looking at the Lonsdale as well)? My understanding is that they're similar in shape/fit so the 8.5 would be ideal.

363 Last is a rounded/almond toe last, 348 has a squared toe, the profile is also different and softer

363 is more similar to 341, here's a comparision between a Londsale (363) and Harrogate (341), same size:

So it sounds like 363 is similar in fit to 337/341, which would translate to an 8 for me.

Hi Bsarosi,

 

I have CJ Atherstone, Vincent (363) and Hallam & Tetbury (348E) in 8.5 UK (I went TTS). However, the loafers fit a bit loose so I should have sized down 1/2 a size. But an extra insole will help.

The handgrades are fantastic. My oldest pair is now at least a decade and still going strong, great leather quality. 

 

Agree definitely worth the purchase.

 

I currently don't have any handgrades, but will look to purchase some in the future. Fantastic, clearly it was a great investment :)

Yes the Vincent looks great. I have the Cavendish in Polo Suede, but it's slightly too big I wasn't able to get half a size down due to Kurt Geiger not stocking 10.5. I bet your Snuff Suede Cavendish looks great.

Here's an old pic:




They're both 8.5 but fit slightly different, the snuff is looser due to softer suede.

Do you suggest to take the same size of the cavendish or half size down?

P.S. Color on the box is "Snuff Suede", same used for Sidney, Chiltern and other models.

Lovely shoes, I do like a good loafer

post #11741 of 12827
hard to say, if you have narrow-medium feets I would probably size down. But as you already mentioned, the idea behind the vincent is an oversize look

I would say take a half size down from your usual UK size.

Btw what do you think about CJ Harvard in 314 last? I have one on its way that I ordered ny usual size?

Thanks Alex. Yours collection look great as usual smile.gif

Thanks

Harvard is a lovely model, great purchase!
What colour/leather have you chosen?

I have the RL Marlow Penny on 314 Last, I had the US 9D but was supersmall, recently I've bought a US 9.5E and they fit very similar to my UK 8.5E Cavendish

Hi Alex,

I got the dark brown from Fransboone, never experience 314 last before make me feel nervous when you say you have to size up.

Hopefully this turns out Ok for me.
