I love penny loafers, and I was able to get these harvards for 150 or so almost new. I don’t like tan shoes however, and I wanted unlined black pennies. So one dye job later… 😁

I was really gutted that I left it so late that by the time I went to order they had (I assume) sold out before the clock they had running ticked down.

They look as beautiful as I imagined. Enjoy them… I ended up wearing my Zug Snowdon’s loads this last winter, the leather does soften up nicely.
Out of curiosity, what is this Horween Zug leather?

Is this gap between the lacing too wide? It's already an extra wide shoe so I can only go from 8.5G to 9G or for special orders. View attachment 2184311
That would be fine for me. They'll close some as you break them in. I'd rather have them like this than closed and too loose.

Looking for a pair of versatile loafers which can be dressed both casually (chins/jeans) and a bit more formal (not necessarily suit and blazer and wool trousers). Have any of y’all tried the Crockett and Jones Yale- how does it compare to Alden 684 full strap loader Aberdeen last ? I am finding latter difficult to size and hard to find in the UK though I do prefer its shape. Looking for similar from C&J.
A bit late in replying, business trip changed and only went to the store today. Yale look excellent. Very subdued burgundy, not shiny and I think can do smart/casual.

Maiden voyage for snuff suede Boston.

This is my first pair of Bostons. I have a pair of Harvards. Same last (314) but Boston is lined and Harvard is unlined. I went with the lined Boston for these because a) I was curious to see how they fit vs. the unlined Harvard and b) I dislike how unlined suede shoes look once they begin to lose their shape.

I took my usual 8.5 UK for the Boston and they are incredibly well fitting. They are definitely the best fitting loafers I’ve ever worn. I’m now wondering if I should have sized down to 8 UK on my Harvards, which fit well but not perfectly for me in 8.5.

I have to admit that I’ve made the mistake of prioritizing looks over fit with shoes in the past, leaving me with 4 so-so fitting pairs of Edward Green loafers and 1 not good fitting pair of Gaziano & Girling loafers. I’m going to try the Alden Van last this weekend at Alden on Madison but haven’t had luck with it in the past.

Very happy with the fit, quality, color, comfort of these Crocketts!

Going to Paris later this year and wanted to try and buy a pair of Bostons. I wanted to ask how different is the pricing in Paris compared to London and if it’s considerably higher. Would be great if someone could share some insights.

You can set France as your location. Last option on the menu. It kept reverting to UK for me. Might need to clean cache.
