    Thank you gyasih and Mr. Essex. The 348 last fits my foot well in an 8.5uk. It really sounds like 9uk in the new ray is the way to go.

    There seems to be less of a consensus on the loafers. It looks like a larger last, and a half size down in loafers is often prudent. If I pull the trigger I'll report back

    Is there a way you can post that insole measurement? For those of us who have never tried them I'd help eliminate some of the shoes we are considering.

    This? It's just an example for you to follow. Have someone help you trace your feet on a sheet of paper, measure the tracing in the places indicated by the arrows, and send them the measurements.

    Yeah, that's it.

    Doh, that should have been obvious. Thanks!

    No problem. Make sure you have someone else do the tracing while you stand normally. Trying to do it yourself makes your weight shift and your feet change shape unnaturally. Ask me how I know.

    I would keep them. Polish a little and you won't see it.
    Poor QC, nevertheless.

    a little polish and that will be basically unnoticeable.

    Agreed, is that the chukka in regular calf?

    I got a pair of the tassel loafers in the 7E UK and I also wear a 7E in the 348 (and 341, and 337) of C&J. The loafers are tight to get on, tight to the point a shoe horn almost gets stuck, but once they are on they fit flawlessly. (Which is strange, I know, but somehow works) These are on the Rui last, I am EXTREMELY satisfied with them.

    Interesting, thanks for the input. If they're on the Rui last were they a custom order? I only see tassels on the Ron last online.

    Oops that's what I meant! Slight miscalculation. I got the brown calf 101381-S on the Ron.

    Nah don't send them back, you'll eventually just do the same thing when you accidentally kick them on your desk/car door etc etc give them a polish like the others said and you'll be right.

    Do you mind posting your foot measurements? In my email exchanges with Jose, my lack of history with quality shoes is making it difficult to figure out my size. I usually wear a US10D for my dress shoes, so your measurements would be helpful.

    On a related note, did Pepe provide anyone with the measurements for the Olfe last in an 11UK? I've given up on getting a response from Pepe and am trying to figure out if the Olfe last will be wide enough for my foot.

    Have any Canadians ordered from Meermin? Curious as to how much it ends up costing in total.
