It's the little things, am I right?
Definitely - I don't recall ever looking forward to an oil change as I did this morning! Especially since I planned to drop off in the morning and pick up later in the day, so this gave me the opportunity to change into a different pair

Definitely a good excuse. I was putting on boots to walk my dogs, but once the summer hit and it started being 90+ degrees here that quickly came to a halt

Ha ha ... if you consider chukkas as boots (which I do) your clove suede Shanklin pair makes for perfect summer boots.

Agreed, definitely consider them boots! In normal circumstances they would be worn to work in the summer, but with this whole work from home thing I'm mostly in shorts and refuse to wear boots and shorts

I was lucky to get my hands on these deadstock Vincent Tassel Loafers from the Handgrade Line. These are straight out of the box and haven't been treated or nourished yet - they definitely need some love and care before we're getting serious :)

which last are these on, and can you make any comparison to 341 / 325 (325 the standard canvadish doesn’t work well for me in toebox, 341 is better)

Actually Paul Stuart has a CJ tassel on 330, I assume that was a HG last?

Same problem here with the toebox on the 325. for me it’s impossible to wear the cavendish :(

C&J Last guide says:
“Fitting advice from retail… Last 363 will fit true to size. The toe shape is aesthetically similar to last 341, 360 and 236. It also has the benefits of our sculpted, closing fitting heel part.”

I normally wear C&J in UK10.5 and own several last sizes:
341: is good, but might be a little short in comparison to other lasts. For the Sydney loafer I had to size up to UK11.
348: very good fitting last because of the elongated toe shape, one of my favorite lasts
337: this handgrade Last is very nice for me, maybe a little extra width wouldn’t be bad, but I like the closer fit.

But now to the 363 on which the Vincent is made. For me it’s something in between 337 and 348. Definately more elongated toebox than the 341, made for a normal to higher instep but a little bit narrow in the middle part. Apart from fit, these are beautifully made for sure and now that they’re polished they look even better :)

Does this help in some way?
