They look good and you're right, Olfe looks splendid.

 

Manlets need not apply on the no-break look; that'd be ~26" inseam on me.

i think it looks short because i need to hunch over to get the pic. my pants sit right below the hips so they hike up a little when i lean over. im 6"2 and those pants have a 32" inseam

olfe is very similar to carmina rain last in both sizing and shape

and a couple of notes on the burgundy shell:

-thicker than horween
-not as lustrous as alden #8 but i like that
-color most resembles my crockett & jones burgundy shell

Its amazing how much impact light has on shoes isnt it, looks like you gave them a polish in between the first and second shot :p

Haha. I bet IRL those look good cause I'm almost as tall as you (6'1") and use a 32" inseam too. smile.gif

About the size, glad to hear that, cause on the rain last I had to take the 8.5UK instead of 8, and Meermin recommended 8 UK.

It's amazing how the sizing is fucked up I take 10 in Rain last and I ordered Hiro in 10 too. Hiro were too small for me I was under impression that Hiro is wider than Olfe.

That is precisely what I am puzzling about.

 

I am debating on whether to pull trigger on the burgundy brogues in the Olfe last.  Rain fits fine, but Hiro crimps a bit, and since Olfe is narrower, it should crimp more than Hiro???  But apparently not...

Crimp?
