    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm pretty sure the lindrick's will be around a long time. I'm pretty sure anyone who missed out will get a chance again in May and every private sale thereafter.

    Got my tassels today and they're too big which is sort of strange since I've got another pair of C&J for Polo loafers which fit okay and I thought they're the same last.

    tassels run slightly longer than the penny loafer. Maybe .25 sizes longer

    Don't suppose there's a size 9 pair out there floating around looking to size up a half size or sell? :embar: People who've PM'ed me I'll keep you folks posted.

    Namor: If you have Darlton wingtips, what size in those do you wear?

    The sizing on these is baffling.

    I have the pennies and feel as if I should have sized up a half size, but others are sizing down?
    Won' they stretch out a bit? like a pair of LHS?

    No, LHS is unlined, Polo is lined and is pretty rough on the feet. I had to go up half a size as well, I don't know how people are sizing down.

    I have the marlow tassel loafer and wingtips and the Rhett, which is basically the penny loafer shape and last except it has a fabric strap instead of the leather strap across the vamp. The wingtips and Rhett are true to size and fit like that right out of the box. Dimensions of the tassel loafers are very much comparable to my Laden for BB tassel loafers. But the tassel loafers have always caused a lot of heel slippage. I think it is because of the low vamp and the double leather sole. The double leather sole takes a very long time to flex with one's foot. Never tried going down half a size. But eventually the tassels seem to be working.

    Yeah, I went same size in wingtips, Rhett, and tassels.
    Should have sized down on the tassels.

    Yeah, I guess I just regret buying, and wearing mine true to size, and want to a) warn others and b) hear someone tell me that actually they'll stretch out tons and I was right buying TTS.

    great looking shoes.
    do the heels in both loafers feel comparable, width wise?

    can anyone explain the logic of pricing a calf version of a shoe the same as a shell version? the term "sucker" comes to mind.

    They won't stretch--especially in length. I'm a 10.5C and had to size down to a 10D in the pennies, wings and PTB. the wings and PTB are a little wide but perfect length. The pennies (different last) are perfect width but short in the toe. They work perfectly sockless, but with any sock they are a little tight. But on the bright side, there is absolutely no heel slippage with them.:satisfied:
