I was/is so happy with those so I participated in the forum GMTO and ordered the same model in burgundy. One pic out of the box and one in action.



Are they all Rain Last?

Yes, both Rain. Identical except for color.

I've had two shipments by DHL with no duties and two by FedEx that both charged duties. FedEx charged $26 both times.

Does anybody know what last those shoes are on?

^^^ I didn't see it listed on their site. Kind of a significant omission.

It depends on the shoe. It looks like some are Rain, Simpson, Forest, and Uetam. I grabbed the snuff suede brogues, which appear to be on Rain.

I think the boots from Epaulet were seconds that popped up in their sale section.

Suede wingtips are beautiful but no info makes it impossible to buy

Yes (and those are the ones I liked best as well). "Looks like x last" does not give me sufficient confidence to buy. But a good deal for those willing to just eyeball the pics and take the plunge.

Guys it is most likely the Rain last. If you look under the Composition and Care you will see following Brand Style ID : 922S. This is designation for the Rain last. Look on the Carmina web site under the Rain last and you will see that 922 is designation for the Rain last, S is probably for suede.

Under "Composition & Care," Farfetch lists a "Brand Style ID." For the wingtips, it's 922S. Since that corresponds to Carmina's 922 model number, I figured it was likely that they're on Rain. I think someone else here reported that what he received from Farfetch didn't correspond to Carmina's model number, even though the numbers seemed to match. Since, so far, Simpson is the only Carmina last for which I take a different size, it seemed like a relatively safe wager. We'll see!

How is the Robert last in terms of width, instep?
