    I wear 8.5UK in EG and CArmina, do you think 10UK of GG Burlington would fit?

    Thank you I have enough burgundy colors but I was still tempted to purchase those now I am glad I do not have to.

    Quote:Good grab. I really do not need another burgundy dress shoe but I would have done it anyway if available in my size. Glad I didn't have to face that temptation. Sort of glad, anyway.

    I've just found out about the After Work Event (had to grab the e-mail from my spam box). Unfortunately I won't be in Stockholm that night (or any time soon).

    Will the announced new models also become available on the site that day?

    Just placed an order for a stock pull EG Westminster in DOAK, what a fantastic option for a wide footed gent like myself. Thank you @Leaves and @Skoaktiebolaget for your infinite patience, and fantastic service... :fistbump:

    Did you pick them up?!?

    I actually already own a pair of black Westminsters in 888... but mine are nickel buckes... not brass... different enough to peak my interest... :embar:

    Indeed always a lot of nice shoes there. Can anyone make a comparison of the Carmina lasts regarding width, volume/height at the instep (which is very important for me because I have a quite shallow instep), ... would be very, very helpful!
