A few suede loafers have caught my eye recently. Cru Nonpareil has an ongoing GMTO w/these penny loafers

.

My hesitation is neither are returnable, and I'm a bit hesitant given how carefully you need to fit loafers to prevent heel slip, etc. Any thoughts or suggestions? And, no, "get both" is not an option ;-)

Think I may have asked you before but can you please share comparison of 4831 size with your other shoes?

Hello Oscar (great name)

I use Church's 173, AE 109 and 87, Loake Capital, Carmina Detroit in 10.5UK and Vass P in 45. I find the Archie slightly wider but not enough to size down. If your feet are slim maybe you should size half down. My feet swell a bit after 10Km runs and the Archie are very welcome those days.

I hope this helps.

A new pair of chukkas from Cobbler Union arrived. A wonderfull chukka, the second in the same model and same last (first pair in Utah Calf).

Brand: Cobbler Union
Last: 312
Welt: 360
Sole: Dainite
Colour: Tobacco

These chukkas shout out quality in every angle. The suede is very soft, the burgundy linning and the quilted heel cup gives the sensation that you have purchased something special. A round toe to accomodate my bulky feet that put these chukkas on the "almost" casual side. I have applied some Collonil suede waterproff spray to avoid the horrible stains that my sloppy way of eating ensures.
