Nope fits fine good snug fit definately want to pick up 946 & 804 last & hoping 804 will work out also.

Brown plain toe blucher or burgundy Adelaide with a medallion on the rain last in a EEE?

I had asked Gabriel in an email if it would be now possible to add EEE sizes to GMTOs on Rain or Detroit, as other retailers are now able to do this and Carmina also allows through their site.

But they were swamped with Edward Green business at the time, and I never followed up on it. Maybe the idea can be revisited?

I took a size 9 in the 804 and a 9.5 in the 946. I wear a 9.5 in the Rain last models that I own, one being a chukka and the other a balmoral boot. I can't wear the Rain in an oxford style though, as I find the instep too high and the length a bit too much. The 946 is a touch shorter so I can deal with the extra volume of the instep. I found the 804 to be very long and wide in the same sizing as rain.

Just to give you guys some background on myself, my feet are between a D and C width, and my instep is on the lower end of the spectrum. My typical US size for dress shoes would be a 10.5D.

Thanks JS, good to know.

At first I looked at your shoes your selling to see if they were my size and then say your newest boots were ugly and that I would be happy to take them from you. Since you are not my size, that joke doesnt apply. What does apply is WOW. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

That's the first pair of exotic skins that I've actually liked, very nice texture and grain for Thorpe. How durable is mountain ram?

Also not normally a fan of exotic skins, but I can see these elevating a casual outfit, or perhaps anything involving tweed. Congrats on the beautiful boots.

That was me, in the Carmina thread. On phone now, otherwise I'd link to my post. Some searching there should do the trick.

i remember that post, however, i prefer to see same size simpson vs rain. Simpson 8 was a tad longer vs 7.5 rain.

@Ironist - those are the best Thorpes I have seen. Mountain Ram is excellent. No need to wait for Autumn, wear those bad boys any time. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

@Leaves - any idea who produced the Mountain Ram leather? Or any additional info you might have. I'm curious about the stuff, as an enthusiast.

I think I prefer kudu (ducks)
