So I'd order an 8.5 US, then. Thanks.

Will keep this in mind for next year's sale! Bwuhahaha.

Just picked up my PTBs from the store, they had it on hold for me. Out of 5 or so RL cordovans, they are my favorite. I think they can even be worn with suits and I don't like to wear bluchers with suits, even thinking to get another pair. Also, there are more things in the store that are not online, some decent ties, more shirts, etc.

Can someone educate me on the significance of Horween stamps?

The hides are stamped before cutting. You probably have a stamp in your shoe somewhere, but only the exposed unlined areas would allow it to be visible.

I've seen Horween stamps on the back of shell shoes for at least 8 years.

By the way I see you were asking about getting a Horween leather stamp inside the shoes?   I just received a pair of Beefroll penny loafers form Rancourt in Shell #8 and it both left and right shoes had the Horween stamp.  What are the odds?


No problem, sir. I'm glad you were able to grab yourself a pair. Yeah I appreciate the Horween stamp because I don't get it very often. I've owned about 50 pairs of shell shoes and got the stamp only a handful of times. Like pebblegrain mentioned unlined loafer feature the stamp more regularly. We're your loafers unlined? The stamp is much more common on unlined loafers. In either case, it sounds like you are set I the loafer dept fing02[1].gif

^ sucks bro was that for the tassels?

i received my 8.5 tassels today and they look the same as the 8.5 pennys, but i am getting a lot of heel slippage in them that i dont with the pennys. even considering going down to size 8 but logic would say that is too small since i am a normal 9 brannock

i know someone mentioned that overtime and wear, the loafers will fit better ... can anyone else confirm this?

I've wondered about the out of stock/restocked/back in stock gyrations. Makes me think that they sometimes have glitches in what they show being available on the site.

One thing I noticed in the pair that I just got was not so much a color difference between the two but rather that the grain was not aligned identically between them. I've got a pair of Tricker's Stowe boots that have a similar (though mush less noticeable) effect.

This is going to sound weird if you haven't seen it in person, but if I view the two boots where I see each boot's same side (left and left or right and right) one will be slightly darker than the other. However, if I view them from above, the sides appear the same color. It has to do with the lighting and the grain, not the actual color of the leather itself. I can tell because if I slowly rotate the boots the color appearance changes as the lighting on it changes. I vaguely recall an old thread with photos that captured this fairly well, but don't have a link to it.

edit: I should also add that "grain" may not be the correct term here. Again, the old thread had a much better explanation - it may have been the grain or some other bit of hide esoterica that I don't recall.

In any event, it's not very noticeable and the shell is so freakin' beautiful you'd have to pry it out of my grubby mitts.

^ I've actually noticed a similar effect in some old Darlton wingtips pics as well. C&J def. often uses a lighter piece of shell on the vamp piece.

When was your order placed? I ordered at 8:00am ET today, yet to receive such an email...but will feel a lot better when I get a shipping confirmation.
