This is the Grenson Radley, the masterpiece black penny loafer. Fit/finish is impeccable, they are a perfect fit for me, and I normally wear a 10.5E or 11D. These shoes are an 11D as you can see from the marking on the third picture.

Very sharp; nice close ups. How about one of the soles?

PS You need to pick up that plastic fork off the floor under the table.

Beautiful shoes and a steal. But the marked size is 11D, and not 11E. I'm only interested in this because I take a 9E and the Bennie's website indicates that only D widths are available. I've emailed Chris to find out about E widths, for those of us with wider feet, and, if productive, will post the reply.

I was wearing these shoes earlier today, and they are really comfortable, in addition to fitting well. Toe box seems to be quite nice, which is surprising because I have pretty wide feet.

I'm wearing these today, they seem to break in rather quickly and are quite comfortable already, even though I've only worn them for about 30 minutes. The toe box on the 11D is a little snug initially but not tight. After a bit of wear I imagine it should be a perfect fit. They look quite nice as well.

wearing them two days in a row?
or did you only try them on yesterday, not actually wear them... sweet looking loafers. i wonder, is it customary to have stitching around the eye-shaped opening in the front? how are you supposed to fit a penny in there with the stitching so close to the edge?
(that's a half-serious question, by the way.) /andrew

The small opening seems designed for small British coins, not American pennies. It appears to be a very subtle form of anti-Americanism among our European allies. I'm also half-serious.
