Has anyone bought the penny loafers? If so how high is the vamp on them?
Following, and also, how is sizing on these?

Vamp seemed normal to low to me. Here's a shot with the AE Strand (it seems to be common for comparison but if this isn't allowed let me know). I went Brannock size (D width feet) as recommended by Spier and there was some heel slip at first until the sole broke in.

Can anyone talk to me about the shoulder padding (or lack thereof) on the sportcoats?

I know that the sportcoats say that there is no padding in the shoulder. However, the SuitSupply Havana says the same thing but when I tried it on I felt something in the shoulders (perhaps that was the wadding/roping in the sleevehead, or canvassing in the shoulder?) and I thought that the Havana looked great on me.

In any event, if there is truly nothing in the S&M sportcoats' shoulders then I probably will pass, as I've tried on totally unconstructed uncanvassed unpadded jackets and I found them very much not flattering (I know the sportcoats are canvassed) - but if there is something in the shoulders then I'll pick a sportcoat up.

Thanks

There's canvas in the shoulder, it's not totally unstructured.
