    Thank you.
    I've received the "sorry, out of stock" email from a few retailers. I hate that email.

    Thanks mike.

    Thanks for the heads up, I have to pass.

    That Marlow penny doesn't show enough wear though! Best loafer :slayer:

    How does that Dinlacker fit? I need some Austro-Hungarian shell, something from Vass, Dinlacker, Buday, etc.

    It's horween shell, nice finish. Fit quite close to P2 for me, just a bit more width and instep room which is perfect for me

    And for loafer still not a fan and not sure how to wear. Keeping it as it is the best shell loafer so maybe one day



    Thanks!

    It's usually my first choice shoe for wear with an odd jacket and no tie... or slacks and a shirt...

    Can also wear it with jeans easily
