    Hi guys, hope you guys can help me out. If I am a size 6FUK on AS109 and 6EUK (just a touch tight) on CJ337, what should I get in 82,888 and 808? I am eyeing a pair of Walcott in Edwardian[​IMG].

    I have that model in that color on the 82. A very classy shoe.

    I half agree with you, and half don't. I bet the EGs would look way better worn than they do in that photo. They're kind of insane there, but I under a hem they might work. I do agree with you that good moccasin-style bit loafers are really excellent, and people who reject them out of hand confuse me as much as people who eschew tassels.

    I find the 184 last to be true to size. It is a comfortably snug fit for me. I think it the best last on which EG makes loafers. In comparison I find 101 last which is used for the RLPL Barksdale has an extremely low instep and it took a long time for me to break in he shoe. Last 909 on which RLPL Javant loafers are made is relatively longer; somewhat similar to the 82 last.
