    Did you go tts? I sized down 1/2 size and it was tight in ball of the foot. Tts was too big. Fits a lot like Alden Grant

    Was on eBay a pair of Peals marked 11C so we'll see. Tried the Peal captoes in store and I think that's on the 240. TTS 11D fit better for me but I went in the morning so not a accurate gauge of sizing.

    I thought I would ask this question here.

    I am trying to compar between a Pair of Loake Oban size UK8F 1639 Last and a pair of Crockett & Jones Harvard Shell Cordovan Loafer Size UK7.5 E last 314

    I think the length is the same but it is the Width that worries me

    Has any tryed or had any experiance with these 2 Lasts

    C&J for Polo scotch grain split toes, new without box, some shop wear from ebay. I think these are relatively old new old stock as I haven't seen them in strores or on line.
    Really liking them:

    I'm a bit torn between two pairs for my next purchase.
    I'm looking for a pair to go with light (stone wash) jeans, and a button down shirt, fairly casual.
    I've whittled it down to the Snuff suede Sydney and tha Tan Drummond.
    Which do you think would go better?

    I think the Drummonds would be too dressy.

    I have the drummunds, and, personally, I wouldn't even consider wearing them that casually. But to each their own ....

    i like them a lot. i feel they would look better with a lighter color or darker trouser. i always find olive trousers to be a bit of a tough shoe color to match

    also socks need to be changed

    The olive trousers pair well with the shoes.

    You are welcome. Indeed, perhaps nothing goes better with olive trousers than a medium (or dark) brown shoe.

    Cords can stay but socks must go. They don't match anything
