    G'day everyone,

    I am buying a pair of CJ loafers. I was just wondering what people think is the better loafer?

    Merton, Beechnut. Or;

    Sydney, Dark Brown.

    I really don't know. I have leaned towards the Merton in the past. btw I have a pair of Church's on the 93 last.

    Mertons on the 348 last - it is very long. Great shoe if the long last is your thing. Not great if you prefer a more conservative/traditional shape.

    Here are the Mertons 'on the hoof'.

    Agree with Gdot here, it all depends on both which last YOU prefer and more importantly which fits better !! Its all about the fit !!!! I've made that mistake before in as much as i like the 348 but to be honest it just doesn't fit my foot at all its too elongated and slim.
