And what does M2D mean?

1. For this Uetam loafer Epaulet suggests going 1.5 sizes down from US TTS. For those of you with Uetam loafers, was this the case?

2. For those of you with Simpson loafers, would the above (1.5 sizes down) also hold true?

Thanks.

I size down one from my U.S. size for all Carmina lasts I have tried (Uetam, Rain, Forest, Inca). The Epaulet suggestion looks like a misprint. If anything, some people size down only 0.5 from their U.S. size for the Uetam, which runs narrow. The only Carmina last from which I can size down 1.5 from my U.S. size is Inca, but it runs short at that point.

I thought the same thing. So I called them a week ago or so and was told it was not a misprint.

Thanks for the feedback.

Well, in addition to this thread (the one that you're in), there's also the "Carmina Shoes: Reviews, Sizing, Photos and more..." thread here:

My shoe sizing knowledge to the best of my knowledge is limited but I have been wanting a new pair of shoes. The only shoes I can recall sizing were:

Church's 173: 9.5 F
Allen Edmonds 5 Last (Park Ave): 10 D
Alden Barrie: 9.5 D

I have my eye on a pair of Carmina 532s in shell cordovan and been struggling trying to get a set answer on the size. I'd be doing a stock pair as best I can. They are done on the Detroit Last in a EE width. My guess is to go with an 8.5. What say you, experts of Carmina sizing?

I am having a hard time finding any info on the Xim last. Anyone have any experience with it?
