    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.

    Point well taken. Every wardrobe should have an EG Dover in dark oak too. :D

    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.
