So, which one is it? Is Genova-sizing comparable to Uetam or Xim (half a size larger)?
I ended up taking my Xim size.

For reference, I'm "almost" 10.5D US, so usually I take UK 9.5 in most Carmina last, and UK 10 in Simpson. For loafers, though, I generally take a half-size down from my usual size. As a result, I wear UK 9.5 for Simpson loafers, as well as Uetam.

I take UK 9 Xim and for an unlined loafers, it pretty OK (a little little little bit loose). Uetam UK 9.5 is pretty snug and I think it's pretty good fit.

I found Genova UK 9 to be very snug, a little more snug than Uetam 9.5 but also pretty comfortable (probably due to shape of the last), but this is not-yet-broken-in so it might loosen over time.
