Thanks Mr. SIx.

Got the 80106! The feel is definitely different compared to my bread and butter brands (C&J, AS, & EG). Since this is my first pair and I heard the Alcudia is narrow, I sized up .5 than what I typically wear with C&J/AS (basically sizing Carmina = EG). The Alcudia is definitely narrower and slightly longer compared to the same size in the EG E82. I I might have been able to get away with length half size down but width I would have suffered because the instep area is pretty fit already. The leather uppers on the Carmina is VERY soft and will take getting used to because I do like the structure of the Northampton uppers. The welt is cut closer on the Carmina and the sole waist has a nice curve to it. I look forward to adding some miles on them to see how well the uppers hold up.

Nice ones dsmivtr! Been thinking of getting a jodhpur or a chelsea myself. I'd be interested in some pics once you've put some distance on them as well.

Good news, I just spoke to Carmina and they told me they just got a shipment of their rustic grain, the one we use for our popular Balmoral two tone boot (as seen below). So we hope we get these in stock sometime around the Ides of February although I can't give you an exact date. A lot of you guys are on the waiting list and you will receive a notification through e-mail as soon as they arrive. If you’re not on the list and wish to be notified of this arrival please send us an e-mail to sales@skoaktiebolaget.se with your UK size and e-mail address. We apply a “first come, first serve” policy. Thank you, God bless you and God bless the Balearic Island of Mallorca. biggrin.gif

I currently wear an 8.5UK in the Rain/Inca and want a shoe that only comes in the Simpson last. Is it advisable to size up a half size (8.5 > 9UK) when moving from the Rain to the Simpson last?

D, those Jodphurs are awesome. Glad you got the Alcudia last to work for you.

I've got 5 pairs of Carmina, each on different last, all tagged 11UK, and each pair squeeks in the heel area

Namor, where are those trousers from? That leg opening looks ideal.

What steps have you taken to remedy the issue?
post #2984 of 9773
Pretty much dealt with it like any other trouble in my life: I downplay it or pretend its not there and hope it goes away
