The Official Carmina Sizing Thread

post #1 of 749
Thread Starter 
I feel this needs a home.

Begin.
post #2 of 749
why not just a single carmina thread?

Because every Carmina thread is comprised of "what size am I" questions.

I think Carmina sizing, at first, looks simple... but if you read into it, there are lots of strange variations. Makes buying difficult, much like with Vass.

I think folks should post a size or two in a shoe or two we all know, i.e. size X in Alden Barrie, or size X in C&J 348, etc. and then post their Carmina size in whatever last they own.

Carmina (Simpson) 8.5

Fair enough:

US- 9 (AE lasts 8 and 0, close to 8.5 on the 5)

JL 7000- 8

Carmina (Inca)- 8 with JUST enough room in the toebox

Nice idea for a thread, but does anyone have experience with carmina's wide width options? I've been told that the forest last is the only one available in a wide, but only in mto.

I'm interested in branching out from C&J to Carmina so I'll be paying attention to this thread.

In terms of shape and fit, is the Simpson last more like the C&J 337 or 348?

Spoo coming through with a great thread. It takes days to sift through the carmina thread to even know relatively what size to buy.

Thanks Spoo!

Now this is a bit unusual as you and I wear the same size in the C&J, yet you are more comfortable in a half size smaller in the Simpson?

spoo -- great thread idea (I'll soon add my info ...).
post #14 of 749
Great idea Spoo.

tim_horton:

All shoes leather and standard width unless otherwise stated:

C&J 337 - 10 UK
C&J 341 - 9.5 UK
Carmina Simpson Oxford - 10 UK
Carmina Simpson Chelsea boot - 9.5 UK
Carmina Rain Oxford - 9.5 UK
Carmina Forest Oxford and Blucher - 9.5 UK
Carmina Inca Chukka - 10 UK

My C&J 337 is a bit loose in 10UK but too tight in 9.5UK; my Carmina Simpson Oxford is comfortably snug in 10UK (which is how I like my shoes to fit.)

No. I wear half size bigger in the Simpson (size 9 instead fo size 8.5).
