mw313 -- Thanks for the past few replies here. Thorough and insightful.I recently considered purchases from several of the newer companies you highlighted -- shoepassion.com, Cobbler Union, J Fitzpatrick. However, in the end, I've been sticking with Carminas. Skoak is an incredible resource and has a great selection and pricing. I've also found current pricing as low as $300-$325 shipped (Carmina's webstore, quality-shop), which just seems too good to pass up relative...
Does anyone know if the shorts' fly is functional (e.g., zip) or not?Thanks.
Inca looks great! Can anyone comment on fit/sizing of Inca vs. Robert?
Dumb question... when a last is described as "symmetric", what exactly does that mean?Thanks!
Don't forget about Alcudia! I own a couple Alcudias and I'm pretty sure they're primarily the same last as the Simpson and only differ in the toe shape.
I recently placed my first order with Skoaktiebolaget. It's been a few years since I last purchased a pair of Carminas, so I'm excited to see how these turn out. One question I'm a little curious about as I'm thinking of placing another order once I see how the fit of this last (Forest) works out...

I guess I've missed this in Ben's past updates. What are the details on new suits?I've been on the fence with ordering a Classico II (I'm between sizes), so I could be best off waiting.
I copped these. Just too much good going on to pass them up -- tough wearing waterproof suede highlighted by Michigan Planner + lactae cricket sole.
