I see nothing wrong with this.

Thank-you, Wisith. What is the consensus on the forest last? If I wear a 7.5 Indy boot, and am between 8 and 8.5 (8.5 AE 5 last for example, 7.5 Marlows) in everything else, what do you all think? Thank-you in advance.

I followed Epaulet's suggestion. I wear a size 8 US in the Indy and other Aldens on the Barrie/TruBalance last and I take a 7.5 UK. I love the Forest last...the chiseled shape is loveable.

8.5 US
=
8 Alden/Barrie
=
7.5UK

in 95% of cases, UK size is a full size below your true US size.

^As long as you don't have feet on the wider side, then I think the above recommendations are spot on. I have several pairs in the Forest last and I think it is terrific. Elegant and substantial at the same time.

Thank-you very much everyone. This thread is great, the advice is always helpful and everyone is kind. I'm willing to exchange for size, but as you all know, the wait is tough; ain't nobody got time for that.

A question for Mike and Matt:

What's the prospect for further Navy Label shirts? I've been wearing my purple gingham Thomas Mason and really like it. I'm desperately in need of a plain blue shirt to go with all the patterned stuff I have, and would like a Navy Label sans ticking under the collar. Considering one of the regular EP shirts with darting, but just want to see if I'm going to buy that and then find out there's the perfect Navy Label shirt coming...

I asked Mike about Navy Label shirts too. He said they're getting 7 new styles of Navy Label shirts in a few weeks.

Hmmm... sounds like I ought to bide my time then. Thanks.

I'm trying to decide between the Carmina Faulkner Short Wing and the Alden Longwing in natural chromexcel. Is the Carmina natural chromexcel darker than the Alden longwing?

Anyone else here order the Gitman sputnik print navy shirt?

I've never seen the Alden natural CXL LWB in person, but I do own the Carmina natural CXL Faulkners and a pair of Alden natural CXL wingtip boots. The Carmina natural CXL is definitely darker. Here are a couple of pics I posted on the Carmina MTO thread today:




I own several pairs of Aldens and like them quite a bit, but in my personal opinion, Carminas are at a higher level of craftmanship.
