    If you mean 9.5D US, the equivalent size for CJ would be 8.5 UK. He unlined nature would make them more forgiving to a smaller size and as they stretch they will accommodate a larger foot.

    I am facing a similar issue with the same shoe. I normally wear 10.5E UK but can usually size down to 10 EK for shoes with a forgiving fore part and if I’m not wearing socks (or thin socks as I do in loafers). For reference, I’m 11.5D US but can size down often depending on the taper of the toe.

    I can report back that the loafers in UK9 did not fit... at all.

    I own a pair of "Bremner" (Unlined Suede 314 Last) and I wear the same size as Cavendish, they are a bit snugger but perfectly comfortable, I worn them a lot last summer and I had not noticed any change in shape/fit with wear.
    I suggest to take your normal size.

    I’m assuming too big? If they don’t fit, send them back. If I’m honest, I’ve had more trouble when it comes to fitting with Crockett & Jones than any other brand. I love my Snowdon, but it fits properly only when wearing my thickest socks and they’re still roomy. Yet when it comes to the 8.5 Radnor, I need to wear a thinner sock. I have to play around with socks when it comes to the Derwent and had to sell two pairs of dress shoes for being too big with dress socks. Oh well. I still want the Peebles.

    No, too small. The width was OK, a hair wider would have been nice. But length was like 1cm too short.

    Is there any reason for a loafer style to have a stitch bar line on inner sides other than to look ugly?

    Really love the Henley style on 325 last, fit is great as well, however that line was all I see upon trying them on, even it is not that noticeable.

    The attachment photo style has the ugly double leather sole, but it's purely intended for presentational purposes.
