I purchased the AS Radwell which uses Hatch Grain a couple of months ago.

 

 

I saw the Suede Chukas at Skoak but they only have two eyelets so decided to get the three eyelet from Epaulet.

Ah damn, didn't even realize it was 3-eyelet vs. 2.  Oh well, looking forward to seeing how they turn out.

I would say stay the same at 9 UK, but I could be wrong.  I'm the same size across the board except for the Simpson last.  Obviously, YMMV.

How does the Oscar last fit in comparison to the Alden Barrie last? I don't think I can pass on the shell WWII boot but have no idea how to size it

I went up a half size from my Barrie size and found it to be just right. I am a 11.5D in Barrie and went with UK 11 in Oscar.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
We've got the next batch of Carmina MTO offerings (as the some of the eagle-eyed among you have already noticed!)

Just like the last round, we've included the option for Carmina shoe trees or Epaulet Epic trees. All styles will be shipped from New York.

Submitted for the approval of the midnight society:





Hatchgrain 3-eye Chukka, Soller Last: $295 deposit




Hatchgrain WWII Field Boot, Oscar Last: $295 deposit



Snuff Suede 3-eye Chukka, Soller last: $295 deposit



Cognac Shell WWII Field Boot, Oscar Last: $450 Deposit

How long will the hatch-grain MTO be up ( I'd really prefer to wait 4-5 days so the purchase goes on my next credit card billing cycle)?

Ah yes, thanks for reminding me guys. I'll build that out tomorrow - it's definitely cool to have three variants of the WWII field boot.

Tan calfskin with Carmina is actually a little confusing.

When we order Caramel, it's called "Cuero." But when we order Cognac, it's the same base leather as quero, but it's hand-dyed for a darker finish by Carmina. This has a good bit of variance from batch to batch, so it will come out all different tones.

When I order Cognac calfskin, I call it Burnished Caramel or Burnished tan.

Oh man, I LOVE THAT. So a bit of an austerity U-tip? That sounds very cool.

We can certainly do individual pairs for you as well - it's a 30% upcharge though. If 5 more guys get onto the reorder then we can put it through at the group price.

Thanks guys! And thanks to applky for floating this idea - it's going to be a great makeup!

To be safe, I'd say yes. Forest and Soller are pretty similar in width, and Soller is a little lower in the toebox, so going up a half size will ensure that it's not too narrow. And since you've got three eyes, you can lace it tighter. You can always use a tongue pad too to tighten it up if you need to as well.

Most guys drop a half size from their Barrie last size, so if you take a 10D in Barrie, then get a 9.5UK in the Oscar.

Oh sure, you've got time. The orders will be open until July 8th.

Mike,

 

any interest in that same chukka with Dainite sole in either Saddle or Cognac shell?

post #3492 of 4103

Navy shell would also be incredible 

post #3493 of 4103
Can we get a money flying away on little wings emoticon added by the mods? Seems like it would come in handy.

Edit: which is to say, very excited about burnished scotch grain WWII boot.

Awesome!  I know Carmina is going to do their interpretation of the boot...do you think they will do a large punch like below?
