Hmmm...normally I take an 11E. How much wider would you say an EE is? Would it make a huge difference?

Well Ferragamo jumps from D to 2E for width, so it would only be the next step up in width. I honestly don't think the difference would be significant. Maybe others here can comment. If you're interested VM, PM me and we'll talk..

To come to the defense of one of my favorite pairs of shoes, I actually really like the Ferragamo loafers.  I have a pair of the even more casual ones.  Granted, I think they are overpriced for what they are, but for those of us who were lucky enough to get them at a significant discount, I think they are great.  When I've worn mine, I've received many compliments, most of which are along the lines of "nice shoes" and not "nice Ferragamos" (someone last week asked if they were Cole Haan).  I think it would be a travesty if you sold them on account of a few comments on this forum, but in the end, it's your decision.  If they fit and they're comfortable and you like them, don't sell them just to appease the fashionista around here

I'm certainly not doing that- I actually dislike many items folks here regularly fawn over, and like many of the brands/models that don't get much attention. And I like Ferragamo's Studio Line much more than their others so I'm definitely in the minority here I've merely come to not care for the bit loafer as much, that's all. I would love the shoe in the same style without the bit. If I can get at least what I paid for them, why not 69 them and get something I love instead?

BBB, I just bought myself a pair of AE Byrons today (black cap toes). Basically, I am of the same mind-set as you, it's time to get rid of poor fitting poorly constructed uglies, and get into some decent footwear. I honestly have thought my shoe size was 10E for the past ten years. Turns out I wear a 9.5EEE. These new AE's fit like a.... well....a glove. -Tom

Here is my humble opinion: Starter shoes (initial layout of about Euro 2000, some RTW brands to consider: E.Green, C&J, Santoni, Mantellassi, Weston) 1 black cap-toe (plain or with broguing only at the cap borders) or a black derby (eg C&J's Aintree/Darthmouth, similar to Lobb's Perrier) 1 brown oxford (too many to list) 1 brown split toe derby (e.g. E.Green's Dover or Lobb's Bordor ) or brown side elastic shoe (ala Cleverley) 1 brown suede derby or oxford (e.g Weston's demi-chasse in brown suede) 1 black Chelsea boot The above selection should take care of all occasions.
