I agree with you with regards the vamp & heel comment, but I find the instep girth to be generous enough and length wise not short (not much clearance in the toe area definetely).
To clarify, my fit comparison was strictly with the ER last, which is slightly on the loose side for me. In general, I like a looser fit in derbies, as I tend to wear them with heavier socks. I can go 0.5 size down in the ER (though restricting myself to thin dress socks). but most likely not in the new round last.
Ideally, Tom would make the ER 0.25 size smaller, and the CA 0.25 size larger... Unfortunately quarter sizes are not offered in RTW!;)

speaking of CJ would you say Christopher is more like Pembroke or Swansea (think Swansea is pretty much same design as Pembroke, but a bit "sleeker" due to 341 vs 325)
I'd say somewhere in the middle: less sleek than Swansea, but more elegant than Pembroke.

Any unlined loafers coming up? My ideal is a dark brown Utah with a lighter edge trim and a topy, but I’ll grab any makeup if dark brown Utah.
Yes, I’ll add it to the pre-order soon. I was also thinking antique edge, and we will be offering the option of having a rubber topy installed at cost (€25 approximately).

That sounds perfect, count me in. Same sizing advice as lined loafers?

Vibram explosion topy soles/heel would be a nice option to have for MTO’s.

If anyone here is a size 10H or 10EEE and looking for a pair of handwelted, Walnut museum calf captoe derby shoes, please PM me. I had a pair made for myself on a standard last by Shanghai-bases shoemaker Oct. Tenth, but would like to place a re-order with some small changes to the last.
