I wish I had sizing info to share on the Teddy loafer. It looks very much like J Crew’s Darby. As in J Crew, I’ve been a size 8 in most Madewell shoes I’ve tried. I don’t think I’m going to order any, but if I did I’d call a store to ask about fit and go from there. If I didn’t reach a store, I’d probably just try an 8. In the rich plum leather. ($94.50 promo + 30% = $66.15). I like studs, but realized they’re not really a personal style match. I really like the Teddy in studded suede, though. If you like to match your belt & shoes, check out the studded skinny belt. All of these, including the belt are on promo at the time of writing.
One more….the Teddy goldshine loafer, also on promo.
