Yeah, that's it.

 

Doh, that should have been obvious. Thanks!

No problem. Make sure you have someone else do the tracing while you stand normally. Trying to do it yourself makes your weight shift and your feet change shape unnaturally. Ask me how I know.

I received my boots from Meermin, but they had a visible scratch on em, should I send em back?

I would keep them. Polish a little and you won't see it.
Poor QC, nevertheless.

a little polish and that will be basically unnoticeable.

Agreed, is that the chukka in regular calf?

Love these. Have my black single monks and my suede brogue captoes EN-ROUTE!

There seems to be less of a consensus on the loafers. It looks like a larger last, and a half size down in loafers is often prudent. If I pull the trigger I'll report back

I got a pair of the tassel loafers in the 7E UK and I also wear a 7E in the 348 (and 341, and 337) of C&J. The loafers are tight to get on, tight to the point a shoe horn almost gets stuck, but once they are on they fit flawlessly. (Which is strange, I know, but somehow works) These are on the Rui last, I am EXTREMELY satisfied with them.

Interesting, thanks for the input. If they're on the Rui last were they a custom order? I only see tassels on the Ron last online.

Oops that's what I meant! Slight miscalculation. I got the brown calf 101381-S on the Ron.

Nah don't send them back, you'll eventually just do the same thing when you accidentally kick them on your desk/car door etc etc give them a polish like the others said and you'll be right.

My first dress shoes were AEs in 10D.  I have a few pairs from them in 10D and some alden dessert boots in 10D.  They all fit well enough.  In C&J drummond, I am a 9E.  I used this as my reference when asking for advise from Sandro because I figured that he probably was not overly familiar with AE.  He reccomended the Chukkas in size 9, and my MTO hiro last double monks in size 9 as well.  So, for a size 10D AE, you size down one full size, at least for these two lasts.

edit:  The chukkas fit perfectly, but i do not have my shell double monks yet... but if they were right on one, I bet that their size suggestion will be right on the hiro last too.

I am betting that you would probably find a local shoe repair source for new soles/repairs.

Do you mind posting your foot measurements? In my email exchanges with Jose, my lack of history with quality shoes is making it difficult to figure out my size. I usually wear a US10D for my dress shoes, so your measurements would be helpful.

On a related note, did Pepe provide anyone with the measurements for the Olfe last in an 11UK?  I've given up on getting a response from Pepe and am trying to figure out if the Olfe last will be wide enough for my foot.
