Carmina Shoes - Official Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - Page 297post #4442 of 180996/15/13 at 5:43amQuote:Originally Posted by Gerry NelsonQuote:
You can also look up the model if it's not stated on the box. Have you got the farfetch link?
E.g. http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/carmina-shoemaker-suede-loafer-item-10277061.aspx?storeid=9269 shows the Brand Style Id as 80191 under Composition and Care.
A search for "carmina 80191" brings up the Uetam penny loafer.
I bought the cordovan split toe monks from Far Fetch.
They're listed as style 80180 which is supposed to be on the Simpson last.
However what I received was style 80180 on the Rain.post #4443 of 180996/15/13 at 6:23am
Carmina have those as being on the Simpson - http://www.carminashoemaker.com/web/hom/coleccion_modelo_detalle.php?lang=eng&dist=g&id_col=21&id_mod=83&id_modFull=0,70,217,86,85,84,83,81,80,79,78,77,76,75,74,73,71,262
I'm also looking at the available shoes on the Rain last at http://www.carminashoemaker.com/web/hom/coleccion_cajas.php?lang=eng&dist=h&id_col=17 and don't see anything like it.post #4444 of 180996/15/13 at 8:52ampost #4445 of 180996/15/13 at 9:16ampost #4446 of 180996/15/13 at 9:18ampost #4447 of 180996/15/13 at 9:42ampost #4448 of 180996/15/13 at 10:21am
The burgundy shell shoes I received were more of a Horween #8, like the Alden shoes. The cognac shell in double monk was dark. I actually wanted to get a pair of saddle shell double monks, but the MTO price was equivalent of being able to get 2 pairs instead of just 1. The only way I could see resolving the color issue is Betty sending a sample cuts to the MTO organizer and then they would be able to decide. Aero leather jacket manufacturer actually sent me 5-6 samples of the various Steerhide and horsehide samples.post #4449 of 180996/15/13 at 12:17pm

Question: I need help with Carmina last and sizing. I have a pair of Carmina balmoral boots on the Forest last in UK6.5 wide. I am interested in some lace-ups that Carmina makes on the rain and inca lasts. I would appreciate any advice as to how the forest last compares size-wise - and primarily in width, since that seems to be the major sizing factor with European shoes -- to the rain and inca lasts. Also does anyone know if rain and inca lasts have variable widths available as, apparently, the forest last does. Thank you.post #4452 of 180996/15/13 at 3:49pmpost #4453 of 180996/15/13 at 5:32pmQuote:Originally Posted by aldenwear

I don't think the Rain and Inca are available in wide fittings.
The Rain and Inca feel wider than the regular width Forest.post #4454 of 180996/15/13 at 5:41pmpost #4455 of 180996/15/13 at 6:01pm
