    How do people size on the Duke loafers lined(black leather ) if that helps

    Im an EG chelsea 202 Uk8E so very 'standard'

    Ive got the dukes and only tried onto put my foot in. It feels like it will expand and naturally as leather stretches im sure it gets even more larger. Obviously you dont want to go too large as your foot could slip out.

    I read true to size everywher. Whats your thoughts from people who have worn them in.

    On another note I have a brand new UK8E Chelsea on 82 last for sale. Pm if interested

    I have the unlined crup version so take my opinion, on the duke loafer, with grain of salt. I find them true to size and ordered my normal UK 8D. That being said since they are unlined there is more room available than the Piccadilly. Can I ask why buy a lined version?

    Anyone got pictures of their well worn e.g. year or so wear +, of their EG oxfords/loafers

    Im not a crease freak but most photos are often posted on their first couple weeks wear. Be good to see shoes which have had wear

    Just my opinion, but I think the actual stitching of the Dover is a lot more visible on smooth calfskin than on grain, suede, etc. I love that stitching, so why not show it off?

    Agreed similarly I feel the same way about colors such as Edwardian highlight the stitch tow even better. Although that doesn't necessarily make for a more attractive shoe the doak dover is amazing.

    agreed-I have Dover in Mink suede and you barely see the stitching. I love the Rosewood and am seriously thinking about those.
