1. The Carmina rain last looks really similar to the VASS U last.
2. I saw this austerity brogue in saddle on carmina's facebook page and immediately wanted it. The kind folk at carmina informed me that it was a MTO for some gentleman. Small world!

Thanks a lot! Saddle color shells are normally harder to come by, so when they became available I went crazy!

While rain last looks similar to U last, I find the fit to be completely different. The U last seem to just hug your instep and heels much better than the rain last. If you look closer, the heel on the U last has more "cup" if that makes sense. The throat opening is also smaller. For me, the U last is a better fit.

And yes, it was this saddle austerity brogue that was featured on Carmina's facebook page. It is a small world indeed!

I take 43 in u and rain, and have both in cordovan. The u last fits better and is much more comfortable. The carmina cordovan is also much thicker, and the sole is much stiffer. Could just be the particular hide/sole, but I'd go vass any day over carmina. Yes, more expensive but still. Quality of vass is pretty remarkable.

I certainly wouldn't size up from here but would consider a half size down.

F last can be trick to get right size,
half size to big can feel good,

Yes,
last might not be best for you foot.

Good eye - what type of things do you look for to ensure fit? How do those aspects change after the shoe is broken in?

many thing me look for when look at mans shoe for fit,
it intuition and artform that tell me always.
Many man here chose poor size and last,
and me see it many many time here.

It depend on many thing.
Sometime it work,
othertime it not work and still bad.

Many man not have feel for good fit,
feel for good fit take lot of experience and many year and intuition to perfect.
Many man think he have good fit,
but experience make it more good to appreciate fit.


many man wear bespoke with funny fit,
but customer not no fit good so he not perfect it good and help shoemaker get good fit.

If man not no good fit he might not get good fit with some bespoke shoe maker.

Man must know foot good and study fit very very careful all day long.
Study foot at morning,
study foot at lunch,
study foot at dinner,
study foot at bed,
studt foot on cold day,
study foot on hot day.
study foot with different sock.
study foot with insole if you need,
It take lot of time,
it art form to get right.

No foot and shoe like x ray man,
it take many year,

when me buy rtw shoe,
me some time try 4 - 5 time on different day over many month to check fit,
it can be trick sometime.
Other shoe = easy fit and buy on day.

Dark color goes better with dark edges likewise lighter colors with light colored edge trims. Unless you want a contrast which may also be good enough. I have both and like both but would prefer the first any day.
