    can someone please let me know what the consensus is with sizing on the Marlow penny? (TTS or down .5?)

    I plan to wear sockless most of the time , fwiw

    thank you

    Sizing penny loafer: tts for me (12D)

    I wore 11.5 and it was too damn tight. After 30 minutes, my feet were dying to get out

    I also owned a pair of shell Boston loafers (same last as penny:314) and those were also tight. Even when I wore them sockless, they fit too tight. The last was too small, especially in length.

    While we are on the subject, I have thoroughly enjoyed my pair. It's become my one loafer both for its versatility and also durability. Loafer on double sole feels like a tank :slayer:

    Np, gl. You wont be disappointed

    Also, If it comes time to buy and you are still unsure, I recommend checking out RL on newbury st. They had them when I visited Boston in Sep

    If I am a UK10, should I go for US11 or US10.5 for the wingtip and the penny loafer?

    I'm a UK9.5 for all the C&J lasts I've tried and I wear a US10 in the wingtip and penny loafer.

    For all of the RL cordovan shoes I'm .5 sizes down from my normal (10 vs. 10.5). The wingtips fit great right away - though of course were stiff at first; the tassels a bit tight but eventually fit perfect; the pennies took a little more breaking in - but had I gone with the 10.5's they would have been way too loose.

    I'm assuming they should be on sale as they always are. Got my notice for the private sale for the first time the other day, I guess buying 3 pairs of cordovan shoes last year finally got me on their list:)

    cool, but how do you feel about how they stack up to one another? You'd said the Marlow was your only loafer. Is that to say you find it superior to the LHS?
