    Burnt pine/walnut country calf. 202 last. The color is a bit off because of camera. It's lighter in person.

    It’s usually £30 per order unless there was a promotion.

    I considering purchasing my first pair of loafers. They are going to be in Dark Oak. I have seen them both IRL a couple of months ago when I was visiting London, but somewhat forgotten the differences between the models and which model I prefer. I don't have the chance to se them side by side any time soon. Based on pictures of both, I am leaning towards the model Duke, but considering the Piccadilly as well. The Piccadilly model seems to much more popular among E.G. resellers, curious to know why. I guess because the Piccadilly seems sleeker than the Duke. Anyone have both, if so which do you prefer and why?

    Do you find the look of Piccadilly loafers a tad feminine? I like them a lot, however they appears a bit tender and soft to me lately, and are one of the rare EG styles that made yet another price increase from 935,00 to 990,00 pounds. Now costing more than their Oxfords for some reason.

    The 137 last that the Duke is made on has a more round and classic looking toe box that to my eyes somewhat resembles the 202 last. The 184 that the Piccadilly is made on, has a more almond shaped toe box and looks overall sleeker. In my eyes it somewhat resembles the 82 last. In some pictures, the toe box of the Duke looks clownishly round and just too inelegant for my taste, in other pictures it looks to be shaped perfectly (picture 2), while the Piccadilly looks a bit too sleek and indeed feminine for my taste especially considering that I find dressy loafers to be on the extreme feminine side of the spectrum of mens shoes to begin with, being sleek just makes matters worse.

    Here are some examples, in the fist pic of a pair of Dukes I find the toe box too round for my taste, in the second pic also of a pair of Dukes, I find the overall look of the shoe to be perfect. The third pic is of a pair of Piccadillys.
