I think my preference is for the Carmina in this instance. I love both and find their suede pretty much on par but the last, leather laces and brass eyelets seal the Carmina for me.

Thanks very much guys. I may send the Alden's back when I get them and order the Carmina suede. Honestly, I keep going back and forth wether either will get enough wear in the blue as opposed to snuff or tan. I'll have to decide soon before they are gone. I hesitated on a pair of Alden whiskey LHS today and missed them by two minutes. I'm still mad about that lol!

Anybody order from Carmina's e-boutique lately? I just placed an order and was wondering what delivery times are like to the West Coast of the US. Any experiences you've had with duties and tracking #s would be great too.

post #7688 of 8942
4 or 5 days on east coast. I would tack on 1 or 2 to west coast. So 5 or 6 days.

How does the Robert last fit? Research seems to say Barrie = Robert size. Any other comparisons? Also, if Barrie = Robert, does that mean 8US in Barrie = 8UK for Robert? That may seem like a dumb question because US to UK conversion charts say to size down 0.5 from US size to get your UK size. I simply want to confirm before I have shoes shipped from Sweden. Thank-you very much. I did try to research before posting here to save the post.

Any advice on the Rain last fit, as compared to Uetam?


Has anyone sized down (i.e. 1/2 size) in the Rain?


I am a size 7UK in Uetam, and I am thinking of sizing down 1/2 size to a 6.5 in Rain for a snug fit...

I agree...tack on a couple of days for the west coast.  no tracking #s, customs can a hit or miss...
