    Take the same size, it’s slightly more slim

    Loakes wear large, so size up half for AS 109.

    Casual Friday? Nope.

    Vintage Dacks. These were a thrift find. This is a great example of why I don't like book binder. You can see the creases. I used several rounds of Bick 4 and then finished with Venetian shoe cream.

    The toe box area is more roomy than my matching pair in calf skin.

    My sizing for your quick ref:
    Loake Capital - UK8 (generous)
    AS 109 - UK7.5 (good fit on snug)
    CJ 348 - UK8 (good fit)

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks, this is helpful! I eventually settled for a pair of Berwick black oxfords with the AFPOS sale. Will post review. :)

    Alfred Sargent Armfield. This thread really helped made my mind up when looking for a pair of black cap toe Oxfords.
