  My first pair of pants was in this fabric. Nice fabric and great for the heat, but I was unhappy with the lining on this pair, although this was before they switched to finer linings. I'd certainly order it again. or any sister fabrics in other colours for summer use.
 Sorry. Was watching last year as the mad rush hit, but I'll agree it was a very victorian 'we'.   I must admit I'm still confused, but with sizing too. What size will be likely to fit a 10.5FUK fit (Carmina Forest, Vass F), if my memory serves me correctly I need to take half a size up in G&G?    Just realised I made a mistake with my original post. I meant a 11US, 10.5UK box, with 10 UK shoes. Is this what you mean Frank? The website says an 11US is 10UK, but I remember...
  Aye, they said the same thing last year, but people were receiving boxes which didn't match the online sizing. I wondered if we ever figured the pattern out.
So if you order a 11US, you get a 11US, 10.UK marked box, and 10UK shoes?
For those who aren't interested in the Carmina Adelaide, are you not liking the plain toe, or the toe shape?    I'd prefer no cap, open to both toe shapes.
  What about just a plain toe oxford based on Meermin's standard pattern? Shows off the leather, still formal, and speeds up the process some.
Suede is surprisingly hardy, I've found.    What's your budget? Meermin have a lot of nice styles in derbys/chukkas on their wider lasts, in grain/calf/suede. Almost all on danite, too.   http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1955 http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=4080 http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1954 http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2342   More on the site.
  We have a rerun going of the original MTO if you're regretting it that badly! :D
  I have a couple of pairs of cordovan loafers, but I use them as beaters all year round 
Out of curiosity, if they're sourcing the hatchgrain from Horween, would Pepe be willing to do a MTO in Horween shell? I assume there would be a hefty cost associated, but I can only guess at how many here would be interested in one?
