Carmina may refund the shipping for you, essentially paying for it. Unfortunately ~$50 via USPS is the cheapest I found as well.
Carmina or Yanko.http://www.carminashoemaker.com/mens-oxford-shoes/wholecut-box-calf-black-910http://www.carminashoemaker.com/mens-oxford-shoes/wholecut-cordovan-black-910http://www.skolyx.se/en/shoes/100-wholecut-black.html
If you're going to wear a captoe, Carlos Santos is sleeker than AE: http://us.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carlos-santos/products/carlos-santos-black-dress-shoes Or, you know, go hog-wild with some G&G: http://us.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/gaziano-girling/products/ganzianogirling-sinatra
Hmmm, that blue Wedgwood with a tweed upper could be a nice StC stand-in....
I like Carmina, but that 50% upcharge for MTO is ridiculous. Seriously you can get their shell boots for $932.73 shipped, taxes included. It's a shame. You might be able to get a GMTO going, they are a really sharp looking pair of boots.
500? Sure900? Hell no. They're not even shell.
Was just looking at the green and rubi boots. My calf 9.5 Robert boots are a hair too big to wear with regular dress socks. I'm wondering if shell would be big enough to wear in a 9
These are gorgeous
They have different offerings so it depends on what model you're looking at. The guys at Skoak speak perfect English though so returns would be 100% easier with them.
I think Forest is roomier than Rain but you should research that. Rain in normal width is better for D or E footed people with wider heels and moderately high insteps. If your foot is pretty narrow you'd probably do better with Simpson and I'd guess you at a 10.5UK. Maybe 10UK in Rain but I think you'd find the shoe feeling big volume-wise. I'd email Skoak for sizing advice in addition to what feedback you get from this thread.
