Alright, so I called Maus & Hoffman in Naples, FL to see if they carry EG's and they don't. But, they called the Ft. Lauderdale store and they're sending over some shoes (they only have loafers) so I can try them on. I'm going to take a catalogue with me so I can pick out what I want and place an order through them in a month or so. So, what do I need to know about the fit of EG loafers to get a good fit for lace-ups? Is the sizing very consistent between loafers and lace-ups? I'm probably only going to be interested in oxfords and monks on the 888 or 82 lasts, can I probably get a pretty good idea of fit on those lasts from trying on their loafers? With EGs do I want them to be pretty snug? If so, how snug? So snug that they're slightly uncomfortable but not painful? Please advise how you would go about dealing with determining your size given my situation. Thanks, HS.
