    @The Shoe Snob Any idea how the fit compares with Allen Edmond 5 last or Meermin Ron last?

    That's the one Park Avenue is on right?
    I'm guessing it can depend on model/last etc. but I'm wearing the Madrona today in LPB, and the 7.5e UK is fitting me far better than the 8.5d US allen edmonds that I normally wear

    I imagine your foot is broader and the AE's that you have fit more snug? The TMG loafer fits more snug than LPB

    our loafers fit more narrow. For example, I fit snug in my 6.5 oxfords and fit snug in my 7 loafers (both E width). And that is because the UK7 loafer is really a UK6.5 last. I did this because most men wear their shoes too big and when taking the same size in their loafer as they do their oxfords, they are usually flying right out of them. Therefore, I sized them down so that people stick with their typcial size and fit just right instead of having to size down (you tell some men to size down and they won't do so out of stubborness of not wanting to have 'smaller' feet).

    Therefore, if you are typically a US9.5, then yes, I would stick to the UK8.5 in our loafer. I hope that this helps.

    Hey Justin,
    I know that you keep striving to make your rtw line shoes better every day. For example by sourcing the best leather from different tanneries yourself and changing from celastic to leatherboard, which is pretty unique in this price class. Could you give som more insight into what other changes/improvements you have done since launching your rtw shoes?

    Yes this is true. Instep and width are problems for AE. I should probably go wide on AEs but I don't think I'm buying any more of them... keeping one pair of Park Avenues for nostalgia purposes but everything else I'll just wear out and replace eventually.

    By the way, Madrona MTO (yes, custom medallion that many on this site would disapprove of and no one would ever get)

    One of my two favorite pairs of shoes right now (other being an Enzo Bonafe MTO) in terms of fit, comfort, and looks. I'll take everyone's word about the construction as I'm no expert in it. There are some extremely minor imperfections that I noticed after the first few days when I looked way closer but none of them affect daily wear or aesthetics.

    OK finally I can post.

    Received my Mercer boots from ebay this past Monday.

    The Black looked new the Burgundy new but tried on and walked in for sure.

    But really I wish they had come faster I could have taken them on vacation with me. The boots are once again fantastic and fit as if molded to my foot. What a great boot easy to wear all day long.

    Seems to be a bug images post 2x even when you insert only 1.
