    And the incoming has landed! Shaping up to be quite the week.

    Starting off with a new last. First try on the 379x. Excited to see how these feel.

    14oz out of Berlin ran these in 2015, I believe. Not sure if they ever had a subsequent run.

    Van last is a confirmed great fit. More will be planned. Yenni's hunter green unlined loafer is a must have guys!

    That's a shame. You commented on the stitch color not being as expected on our blue boots (still look fantastic) ; this toe stitching color is was I expected as well.
    Those have a great dark color. Is that 379X?
    Nice. Fate of Atlantis is a much improved sequel to TLC, but this one is still worth the play. Can I offer you some fine Corinthian leather? ...oh, oops! That's the book!

    Did you do your normal size/width? or size down ½?
    How is the volume for us flat foot types?

    I went my typical half down Barrie size, 11EE. I'll put it this way: I'm quite sure 11EE Barrie would be full closure at least in a shoe. The vamp on these keeps tighter than any other loafer I've tried. Less volume than 11EE AE 79 (Randolph) and 11.5E AE 2042 (Acheson). Admittedly they're a bit narrower too; I'm half tempted to see what an 11EEE would do. You might be able to make these work if you can find your B width.
