Thanks! I feel better now. I'm putting a few orders shortly and glad to hear I'm not the only one with the sizing differences for Rain last.

So I will confuse matters.  For me, Simpson 8UK is perfect, Rain 8UK is a touch wider but fits very well, Inca 8UK is noticeably wider and is just on the ok side of acceptable (could probably have sized down).  Maybe my feet are just weird. shog[1].gif

Same as above post. 8uk Simpson is a good snug fit, rain slightly wider, room in the toe box for both but wouldn't risk going down to 7.5 in either last

I've tried 7UK in Rain last and it was just way too snug (have issue with width) for me and 8UK in Rain was way to loose. I didn't have a chance to try 7.5UK but pretty sure it will be spot on now.

You're almost same size as me.

I'm 7.5uk in CJ 348&337, 7.5uk in G&G kn14, 8uk in G&G TG73 and EG 888, and 7.5uk in JL 7000&8000

In case of Carmina Uetam, 7.5uk fits me well.

According to Carmina the Rain and Inca are the same in width (EE). I find it odd that your size on the Rain last is half a size larger than your size on the Inca last. I'm really curious as to why because I'm planning to buy a pair on the Rain last.

For me it's even more different.

I wear double monks on Inca last in UK 8 (perfect fit) but have to size down to 7.5 UK in Rain last as 8 UK is too loose. Simpson in 8 UK is perfect fit as well.

It appears I am the same as Hifilover in that if I ever do an Inca last again I will go a half size down from Simpson and Rain.  I have size 8UK in all three and the Inca is by far the widest of the bunch.  Guess we are both odd... smile.gif

Can I get some sizing advice from Gentlemen's Footwear here? I'm eyeing to get those full brown wingtips in dark brown calf. I'm a UK 9.5 on the Inca and UK 9 on the Xim. I can't fit in narrow and chiseled lasts like the C&J 348 and the Carmina Simpson even if I size up.

I actually tried the Rain and Inca and had that finding. Inca Uk8 was surely too large for me while Rain last in Uk8 is just fit to me...Hope this will be useful to you.

Pink Panther:  How does the toebox compare between Rain and Inca?  My only complaint with the Inca last is I need the toe box a little taller (more like Forest).

Off the top of my head, I think the Rain's toe box is slightly taller but I can't recall for sure.  I will put them both on tonight and let you know.
