I can only speak for the Forest tassled loafers, but I wear them in the same size as I wear my oxfords on the Rain last (8.5UK).

The instep is slightly lower on the Forest last, which I found helpful in securing the foot in a loafer.

Can anyone help with with sizing advice on the Detroit last?  I measure a 9D on the Bannock and am 8 1/2 D (or 8E) on the Alden Barrie last and 9D on the Alden Aberdeen.  I am specifically looking at the Cognac LWBs.  Thank you.

Carmina is one full size down I am 9.5D I take 8.5uk on rain last & take 8uk on Detroit last on suede just because they are more forgiving. Non suede would be 8.5uk hope it helps.

Half a size up should be enough. Otherwise, they might be too long.

Anybody take the same size in Soller as they do in Oscar? Any differences in fit / feel between the two?

Oscar has a rounder toe box but the overall profile and fit for Soller is slightly roomier. Instep for Soller is also slightly higher than for Oscar.

Do you guys know where to find Carmina bbots in the simpsom last?

post #1273 of 1290
Size recommendations?  Particularly Rain last, but advice for any last would be appreciated!

US Brannock: 8.5 D/E
AE 65 Last: 8E fits really well ITO length but could be a bit wider
C&J 348 Last: 7.5E UK fits well, 8E has a bit of heel slip

I am presuming one full size down from US would be ideal, maybe with a wider fit.

Could anyone chime in about size comparison between Forest and Robert lasts?.  My Suede Balmoral boots on the Forest last are snug but perfect in lenght and width.  The problem is that on the instep is a bit tight.  I just ordered a derbie in suede on the Robert last which I find more pleasing but I am quite concern about the width specially at the waist/toe area and at the instep too.  Has the Robert last similar widht at the waist/toes than the Forest?.  Has the Robert a higher/wider instep than Forest?.  I am sure I could modify my order in case Robert last has less volume overall.  TIA.

I can custom Rain width D (not E) and EE, EEE.

 

Maybe Rain width D will be the same Simpson E?
