Recommended drink and smoke pairing for reading and participating in this thread:
Cohiba Siglo II
Any disagreements? Varying weights and strengths, and the petite size of the Siglo II is perfect for snark.
+1 for the Royal Oud. It's comparable to the oud I buy in Saudi Arabia, which is just splendid.
Also will echo Mr. Six. If there had been more Carmina in my size, would have instantly kopped. 11 UK in Simpson and Alcudia.
Can't wear Rain as it's too wide in the heel, even when sized down. Had the same experience with John Lobb, it just doesn't work.
Here are some comps if it helps:
TG73 - 11 UK
Simpson - 11 UK
C&J 348 11.5 UK
AE 5 Last - 12 C
EG 890 - 11 UK
