    Those PTBs do not look like Aldens. Am I wrong?

    Thanks for the replies about the Finsbury, its really helped me decide to go ahead. I think I'll order it with Dainite sole which C&J advised will take 2 weeks to do. :)

    Thanks Namor. I ordered TTS and found them a little too large with thin or sans socks. Going down 1/2 to Van Cordo size. I like the loafer .. Unlined being very key in the desert... and a light colour unlined .. Tough find...

    Smarta..
    Their catalogue is online, if you don't know at http://www.crockettandjones.com/
    And they ship by mail.
    One can either call or email. However, it is a good practice to call with your cc details, rather than email it... NSA is watching and someone there may sell your cc number, expiration date and CCV to the bad guys...
    And I'm not living in the US.

    Going 1/2 down like many people here do... at least from my own experience... means:
    1. too tight over the instep
    2. too short
    3. too tight over the toes
    Too snug also means your pinkie pulling out through the side (quite distasteful).
    Therefore, I buy all my shoes, regardless of the last, in one size.

    Really nice. I'm in the market for a new pair of suede loafers, but fear the vamp on these might be a little high.

    Your also TTs in Van last as well? No pinky issue here, but I have low volume feet as explained to me. As in thin. B. Silver buyer advised the Van size in the Unlined Harvard. The TTs was sloppy.
