    I don't know Carmina lasts but I do have a few pairs of Patriots, and they run true to Brannock sizing as to both length and width.

    The Shoebank has the Brooks Dundee in oxblood in a 12D for $114. How are those still there?

    Hi guys,

    For those of you that have the Gobi and have exp with Clarks DB , do you consider the Gobi a big improvement in quality? , I want a pair of casual chukkas for beaters and looking for comfort, the only shoe I tried with Dainite sole was kind of stiff but I just tried it briefly , with the current sale I can get a Snuff Gobi for just a few bucks more than a Clarks Db and I don't want to spend too much on a suede Chukka, I had a pair of unlined Alden but sold them because I didn't like the lack of support of the unlined model.

    TIA.

    I was in the Burlington store in Woodland Hills, CA today and the clearance section had this pair of Westchester slip on for $99. 8.5 EEE and what I believe is the Independence sole. I realize there may be a few people in the forum who could wear these and I thought I would point them out. Its a good looking shoe, but I know nothing of the shoe's reputation. I hope someone is looking for just that sized shoe.

    Watchman has some of the best shine I have seen. Unless im wrong, those PAs are probably calf but they look like shells, amazing job. They seem to match the rest of your Camina collection. HAPPY 4th

    Anyone go up a 1/2 to a full size and down a width or two from their brannock size for a better fit on the 5-65 or 511 lasts?

    I had to go down half size on the 65 last, and 333 last. I measure 11 in length and right between c and d in width, all my 65 last shoes are 10.5D.

    Those are not the Independence sole. Just a regular sole with the [whatever the split leather/rubber heel is called that's on several of their normal shoes like the Vernon].

    Regardless, they look really nice. I could probably fit into them (I usually wear a 9E but an 8.5EEE might work for me in a loafer like that actually).

    I have to go down from a 6.5E to a 6EEE to fit the 65 last. Same for the 108 and 222 lasts.

    Luckily, AE has been very accommodating in making these up for me without an upcharge, even though 6EEE is outside their normal size run. The 511, 73, 234, 606, 79, and 97 lasts fit me true to Brannock size.

    Up half size but same width for the 511 for me. I take 11.5 in the 65, 108, 333 and 97 as well most all others, but a 12 in the 511, except the Wilberts, which I still take 11.5E in for some reason.

    I'm 11 E (left) and 10 3E (right) and wear 10.5 3E quite comfortably in the 5, 1, 3, 63, 234, and 2 lasts. The 511G is narrower still and I need to go up to 11 3E because of the orthotics.
