Fantastic looking pair!
:-( I already overindulged again. Need to wait a little now.
Hopefully my size in brown suede is available in a week.
Link to which ones you're talking about? Most are on the Uetam last but some are on the Simpson.
If it's Simpson, a half size down would work if the Inca isn't that snug and you have wiggle room.
Also, the Simpson doesn't look Italian to me. I see a difference now between other shoemakers and the Simpson last.
I meant suede chocolate oxfords, sorry: http://www.carmina.telemaco.es/articulo.asp?idarticulo=3640214
You don't think they have a low-slung, sleek look?
And you think size down from Inca?
That's a difference. Loafers have a big opening and Oxfords do not.
And I agree they do have that look but don't look Italian to me still :-D I think Carmina made their own style and it looks fantastic. Doesn't remind me of Italian shoes. That said, I'm not an expert.
I would have sized down for a loafer, not an oxford. Keep it the same if the Inca is snug. My Inca was loose and I kept it the same size and the Simpson fits fantastic. I could have sized down on Inca (meaning you could size up if the Inca is snug).
