Carmina changed their pricing structure for US customers a while back in order give all resellers a fair and equal opportunity. With that said, the entry price of oxfords, cap toes, austerity, etc is $450 across retailers.

What he said.  Prices were in the $300's until  Carmina stepped in and set one price for sales to the U.S.

300? USD? That must be a couple years ago, right? I made my first order about a year ago and Boots were at 485 EUR, just like they are now.

Carmina did increase the price of their belts though.

Guys I need your help on a sizing question.

How do you compare sizing on Simpson last to Rain/Soller/Detroit lasts?

For example, if I wear size 8,5 on Simpson should I go with Rain in the same size?

What is your experience?

Consensus seems to be to size up .5 from Rain to Simpson, so 7 Rain would be 7.5 Simpson.  I wear a 7 in both lasts, though the Rain fits me considerably more comfortably and I wonder if I wouldn't be better off with a 7.5 Simpson.

Thanks @heldentenor so if I'm 8,5 in Simpson probably size 8 is OK for Rain.

I wear the Simpson in a half size larger than Soller. Most people tend to have to size up half on the Simpson. I take the same size in Soller and Inca and size up half in the Simpson.

Those are stunning Joel! The only model of U wings that I enjoy, to be honest. If only I could fit Rain I would find myself a pair!
