slightly wider in my opinion.

Not the Simpson.

Does it run narrow at all? Do they have narrow widths?

Last time I asked, no. Hopefully something has changed?

Mr Moo,
The saddle Cordovan starts out quite pale, and over time ages to a richer cognac, then eventually gets reasonably dark. As a light cordovan, it is prone to get dirty - not a shoe for you if you want something that remains pristine and light, but great if you want a pair of shoes that will get knocked about, go varying shades by panel, and glow like good Horween cordovan does.
I have posted pics at ethandesu.tumblr.com of a pair that have been on display for the last few months and have a fairly consistent colour throughout.

WOE,
Carmina MTO's are taking about three moths at the moment, especially with Christmas and New Years in that time frame. The upcharge is 50% on our retail prices.

Smiles,
The Carmina lasts are all width specific - from my experience, you cannot get a narrow last made wide, nor a wide last made narrow. Rather they have lasts that are narrow or wide, with different shapes and toe boxes per last. What we currently carry are the following;

Simpson - a narrow last with a chisel toe. Reasonably extended in the toe box, and a reasonably narrow waist. E width.
Alcudia - much like the Simpson, but with more of an Almond Toe. E width.
Robert - A rounded Almond toe, E width. Officially it is the same width as the Simspon, but the extra room at the toe tends to make it more comfortable for wider feet.
Inca - a pointed toe, on our widest last, with a fairly wide waist. The most comfortable last we have for wide and flat feet. EE width.
Rain - Much like the Inca, but with a chisel toe. EE width.
Forest - a popular last in Europe, it is a standard width with a soft round toe, quite low in the instep, so high insteps can feel a little pinched in this last. E width.
Uetam - a new last for us in a loafer, it feels very similar to the Forest, if a shade narrower. E width.


The two latest models we've received are below;

Robert Straight Tip Brown - $3800

Uetam Loafer in Snuff Suede - $3800
