Sizing penny loafer: tts for me (12D)

I wore 11.5 and it was too damn tight. After 30 minutes, my feet were dying to get out

I also owned a pair of shell Boston loafers (same last as penny:314) and those were also tight. Even when I wore them sockless, they fit too tight. The last was too small, especially in length.

While we are on the subject, I have thoroughly enjoyed my pair. It's become my one loafer both for its versatility and also durability. Loafer on double sole feels like a tank icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also, If it comes time to buy and you are still unsure, I recommend checking out RL on newbury st. They had them when I visited Boston in Sep

If I am a UK10, should I go for US11 or US10.5 for the wingtip and the penny loafer?

No info on the penny but I went for a UK9 which is my size and the box says UK 9 and US10.

I'm a UK9.5 for all the C&J lasts I've tried and I wear a US10 in the wingtip and penny loafer.

For all of the RL cordovan shoes I'm .5 sizes down from my normal (10 vs. 10.5). The wingtips fit great right away - though of course were stiff at first; the tassels a bit tight but eventually fit perfect; the pennies took a little more breaking in - but had I gone with the 10.5's they would have been way too loose.

I wish they still had the Lindrick!

Got the notice for 40+15% private sale starting 4/27 today in the mail, but it doesn't specify any exclusions.

I'm assuming they should be on sale as they always are. Got my notice for the private sale for the first time the other day, I guess buying 3 pairs of cordovan shoes last year finally got me on their list:)

also, anyone interested in an NIB 11.5 Shell Marlow Penny should step to these (not my auction)

IME, RL Penny 12 = Alden LHS 11.5

cool, but how do you feel about how they stack up to one another? You'd said the Marlow was your only loafer. Is that to say you find it superior to the LHS?
