Saw an ad in the paper for these guys:

Considering they have called their MTM service a Bespoke service, I am having doubts already.

Congratulations, as my favourite Vulcan says: May she live long and prosper.

Hi guys, just thought I'd see if anyone is intested in a pair of Loake 1880 'Gladstone' shoes, black, size UK9?

 

I purchased these recently from The Shoe Healer but they are too large for me.  It turns out they are a bit bigger than the Loake Aldwyche's I have that are the same size.

 

I've only tryed them on once in my bedroom and consequently they are in as new condition.  I also have matching cedar wood shoe trees also purchased from The Shoe Healer.

 

I'm located in Melbourne and prefer pickup, but can post if necessary.  Looking for $240 for shoes and trees.

Cheers.

O dear, don't tell me this!

 

Is it common for shoe makers to randomly change their shoe sizing for different models?

They are built on different lasts ... 

 

Different models on the same last would fit similarly.

This is true. Also, it is sometimes said that in some makers' shoes, shell cordovan models fit a smidgeon looser/roomier than calfskin variants in the same size and style. I don't own enough shoes to comment.

I am in for a surprise :).

 

I thought it was like buying a pair of ASICS off the internet.

Congrats Rob :)

 

Interesting to see that Loake's 'swing' last fits so differently to their Capitol. Just through the forefoot or in the heel too?

I've got the C&J Pembroke and the RL Marlow (by C&J) in the same size and on the 325 last. Both are wingtip derbies, one in scotch grain calf and the other in shell. I actually find the scotch grain to be a little roomier than the shell.

 

I can't comment in other cases though so some may have found the opposite to be true.

Yeah, I can't comment because I don't own the same shoe in both calf and shell. However, it's often said about Alden styles in particular that the cordovan fits roomier.

I'm going to buy jeans tomorrow. Maybe.

I thought it was the other way around, that the cordovan models fit tighter? I remember this is true for at least Alden's unlined LHS loafer

If you guys had to pick 6-8 ties as a 'must' for a gentlemen's wardrobe what would you pick? I'm thinking:

 

x1 predominantly red stripe

x1 predominantly blue/white stripe

x1 Navy grenadine 

x1 Dark red grenadine 

x1 Silver check 

x1 Sports motif (I can't help myself - RMW bulls)

 

Need to be all rounders for law courts to be mixed with predominantly mid grey and navy suits.
