Back in the game! Pounced on a pair of oxblood Dalton seconds during this sale after being off of this site for a while.   Glad to be back.  
Just jumped and got my first pair of Carminas from Sko this week (Black captoe in the Rain Last). Now I am addicted! I have a higher instep and wider feet and am usually an 8.5E in AE's 5 last. The Rain last Balmoral in 8UK fits me almost perfectly in all regards (great around the toebox, ball of the feet and arch, creasing at the right place and instep is comfortable... it is a tiny touch long and the heel is a little wide). Given that description, what other lasts might...
New to Carmina- used to wearing AE 5 last in 8.5E.   I was able to try on the 8UK in the Rain last (balmoral) and Inca Last (double monks) and found that the Inca fit looser than the Rain, which was surprising, since most on here say that the Inca is generally narrower than the Rain. What size would you recommend for the Forest and the Detroit for me? I have a slightly wide foot with a high instep.   Thanks!
Interested in the Harrison myself. How is the instep of the 333 compared to the 5? I am a 8.5E on the 5...slightly wide foot, but high instep....wondering if I should just get the 8.5D for the Harrison. Also, how does the new 201 last compare to the 5?
Thanks for the in person pic. How do the Warwick and Rogue fit compared to your standard 5 last?
I've been out of the SF game for a good bit, but took some time with my bottle of Saphir and a few pairs AEs last night. I realized that most of my AEs are of the dark brown brogue persuasion and that I should really get some plaintoes in different colors soon. Does anybody have the details for the upcoming April sale (I apologize if it has been posted already, I've been out of the loop for a while!). Also, how does the new 201 last compare to the 5 last?
Any word on the shoebank's deal on cordovan for RDA? I missed out on the last sale from the shoebank on cordovan for $329 a few weeks back
Interested in this as well. Seems to be similar fabrics and claims to be half-canvassed. Ordered 2 as workhorse suits for work, as the Napoli fits me pretty well for a conservative work environment- will report back.
I like the concept of the U-Wing, and it looked pretty well executed when AE posted a walnut prototype in the wild a while back. I would much rather have a plain toe though, as it is a little busy. Something like Carmina's U-Wing would be perfect 
Pebble Grain Wingtips. Makes sense, as it is at a lower pricepoint than the other C&J models. I just saw Made in England and assumed. Who is the maker, Loake?
