I have this same pair and they run TTS, I got a 9.5 as a 10 and while it fits okay, it's too snug in the toe. I wear them anyway in hopes of them breaking in. They're an EXCELLENT pair of loafers.anyone has experience with 72 last, looks like only retailer carry them (vs. CJ direct), how about just vs. 341?
For your consideration a new pair of Crockett & Jones lined penny loafers for Brooks Brothers' shoe line, Peal & Co. Built atop a single oak-bark tanned outsole with 270 flat welt and a matching brown edge trim.www.ebay.com
ah if too snug in the toe, then have to pass, oh well...
edit: realize you downsized half, how about instep?
You're going to be 100% fine, I have as 10D as 10D feet go, at 9.5 they'll fit excellently. The Brooks Brothers last is a mix on American and British lasting, only the shell cordovan models you go half size down.9.5D US, though in general I have issue with toebox width, 348 is too narrow (8.5E UK), upsize too long, same issue with GG (9E UK in MH71 barely works, forget about TG73/DG70). I found my best fitting last in CJ is 341
I'll check it out when I receive them in two days, and probably return. By any chance, do you have any pics?Like the leather felt like they skinned a basket and stiched it together. Just didn't feel nice. Wasn't stiff leather, just felt cheap.
