Yeah. The Tod's are great, but at the same time they are nothing special. There are a lot of other companies out there cashing in on the driving moc style. My bro-in-law kopped a pair from Jack Erwin this summer for like $100. I would be unable to justify that my Tod's are intrinsically worth more than 3X what he paid for them. I don't consider the full-sole version that I have to to be much more durable than the regular Gommino. They both suffer from the same problem, and...
Do they sell Carmina?
Could be a tough one for you. Most similar to Aberdeen, IMO. Its narrow, and does not easily accommodate those with high forefoot/instep. For example, I would be 9C barrie, 9D Aberdeen, 8.5UK Uetam (and its a super close fit).

It varies, and sometimes the don't respond at all. Helps to keep it clear and concise, and it simple English because it is not their first language.  Also, they might be closed for the holidays.
Those are real nice!  How did you size Llubi relative to other Carmina lasts? is it like a whole half-size bigger, as is often suggested?
@clee1982 You should definitely kopp. Its not the finest cashmere, however, it is firmer than the other cashmere YHNTs that I have, and consequently ties a great knot and doesn't curl much at the tip.
I toned down the color a tad in these pics to try to make them accurate Cashmere Hunters Shepherd Check, W. Bill Scottish Tweed Plaid   ^NYE Getup
 I would probably have an issue with that. Also, what is that sole-edge treatment? Natural? Not sure i've seen that one from Carmina before... How do you like the vision suede in general? is it more beige or gray in real life?
