not interesting? #8, Cigar, Whiskey, and Ravello are in no way not interesting. Maybe you don't appreciate shoes like I do, but those pictures of rare shell are a heck of a lot more interesting than most of the crap on the internet.

Need some advice on last...

I just picked up this pair of Snuff Suede LHS on Ebay. I did my homework, tried on some sizes in store, and though I had figured out my size in the Van last (same as my Barrie size).

But then I got these in the mail and they fit much smaller than my Barrie lasted shoe. They are, in fact, shorter and narrower. This leads me to believe that I got a pair of LHS on some last OTHER than the Van. Are these on the Copley last? They read 6243F which I why I assumed they were Van lasted.

Pictures of the LHS compared to my Barrie 975s below. They are both the same size.

any copley lasted loafers I've seen have a 270 welt and are not hand stitched. They don't look like van to me. The vamp looks shorter than the normal lhs. That is odd for sure.

My pair had the same model number as yours, and is indeed on the Van Last. I have observed some pair to pair sizing variance, but that is pretty crazy.

Hm. I wonder what is up then? They should be roughly the same length/width as the Barrie assuming they are Van and the same size, correct?

Noob sizing question: I am a size 8.5D in Trubalance, RW Iron Ranger and Wolverine 1000 Mile. What size to get on the Barrie last? Aberdeen last?

 

(Thinking of getting a shell PTB or a shell Tassel Moc at the Shoe Mart)

 

Thanks in advance!

Without more detailed sizing information in dress shoes for you, I can't say for sure, but I would wager you're an 8.5D in the Barrie and 9D in the Aberdeen. However, with a loafer, you have to consider the vamp/instep size more seriously, so I would hesitate to recommend buying an Aberdeen loafer without trying one on. As far as Barrie and Trubalance go, they are generally sized the same. Trubalance is a touch more voluminous, but unless you're like, extremely snug in the 8.5D Trubalance, you should be okay in the same size in Barrie.

admittedly, I lean on the side of less product, but what is the problem you are encountering?
