    Couple of new arrivals:

    And Duke in Hazel and White Calf:

    I found the Duke to run narrow. I purchased them from Leffot many months ago. When I received them, 9E UK on the 137 last, they were painful to put on. I returned them to Leffot, and had them order me a pair in F fitting. That is the pair seen above and they fit fine.

    Also, I think EG does a phenomenal job on burnishing and antiquing calfskin shoes making their suede shoes not quite as exciting.

    +1 for Duke running narrow on toe box, the heel is ok.

    Duke vs. Piccadilly? What are people's thoughts?

    So did you get the same size but one width larger?

    Also was your experience simply from an initial try on as opposed to say 10 wears with it?

    The reason I ask is ive got a black leather pair lined in my true size comparable to 202chelseas. And it feels snuggish but not overly tight, this is without a single walk on proper ground. I've heard/read many things about once you wear it in especially for loafers the 'stretch'?

    Isn't the 137 a broader last than the 184? Is the trouble with the more defined last wall? I too have trouble with the loafer lasts, even with the F, generally.
    I have a pair of Henley - on the F 137 last - on order as a MTO, I must admit I'm a little worried.

    Offhand I don't know if 137 is broader. I do know that I take a 9E on the 202 and 8.5E on the 82 lasts. So, I figured my size would be 9E on the 137. I could barely get them on and there was actual pain just standing still with them on. I didn't even attempt to walk in them. The 9F seems fine. There was quite a bit of heel slip at first, of course, but as the sole has broken in a little, that slip had diminished considerably.

    Curious experience, I find the 82 punitive - thus requiring a half size more and a broader last. On the 202 I am still an F but an 8F as opposed to 8.5F.

    It was explained to me that the 82 is longer, proportionally, than the 202, hence I need a half-size smaller in the 82 compared to the 202. The explanation might be complete BS, but there it is. These Dukes are my first Edward Green loafers, so I had no real idea of how they would fit.

    So minimal I'm not sure it matters!
    Piccadilly for me. However, as an availability arguement, Duke seems to be the fed loafer.

    +1 for the Piccadilly (for a 'Duke-like' loafer, I'd go with the JM Weston 180)

    Really interesting hearing people say the Duke ran narrow. For the unlined loden suede pair from Leffot I grabbed my same UK7.5 I wear in the 606 and it was easily a half size large all over. Feet were slipping out like crazy. I would certainly size down to a UK7 next time, at least in an unlined suede. Of course I can't speak on lined versions.
