    I have C&J 348 last and wear 8 UK. my G&G size for shoes/boots is 8.5 and for loafers its 8 UK whether its calfskin or suede.
    In my experience going half a size down on the G&G loafers give a nice snug comfortable fit as they don't have any straps or laces.

    Me too but for suede loafers I have to go to 8uk because of narrow feet. Other wise it will fall off my feet sadly.

    I also size down a half for loafers and sometimes for suede shoes. I find that suede tends to 'ease' in a good bit more than calf and that subtle stretch tend to happens post foot-bed settling. With loafers I'm forced to size down because my narrow heel will slide and even slight movement will bother me to wits end.

    Keep in mind...sizing down a half isn't a pleasant break-in.

    PS: Maybe I'm late to the party...but did you fellas notice that if you switch your iPhone camera mode to 'portrait' it takes these fancy shots?

    The portrait mode is only for IPhone 7+, which simulates a shallow depth of field effect using its dual cameras.

    Looks to be great for shoe portraits too!

    Not the greatest lighting but just received my anniversary order... sad fact is. The shoe buckles are in brass and do not match the belt.

    Thanks! Haha I did specify the belt to be in silver... I shouldn't have made the assumption the shoes would come that way as well.

    Question for @phichi1106 and anyone that ordered a MTO monk strap recently.

    I noticed my Carnegie features elastic buckle holders, instead of leather like on my Oakham some years ago. Is this being applied to double monks as well I wonder? Not going to lie, I don't enjoy this new elastic feature... :plain:
