    Reposting this from the Carmina sizing thread, as I only got one response (even though it was a helpful one).


    I just picked up double monks on the Inca last, but I'm unsure of the sizing, seeing as this is my first pair of really "nice" shoes. I'm a 10D in Allen Edmonds, so I picked up a 9UK from Carmina.

    The ball of my foot fits really nice and snug (seriously, perfect), but I'm getting the feeling that they're a tiny bit too big on the heels, especially on the right shoe. When I pick up my foot, my heel slips just a little bit, and I'm honestly not sure if that's supposed to happen at all. I took a bunch of photos and lumped them into an album, so if you guys could take a look at them and tell me what you think, I would really appreciate it.

    The photos with the pen are for indicating how much my foot moves when I lift up my heel to take a step: The bottom of the pen points to where the top of the shoe ends when I'm not stepping.

    Are these too big, or am I freaking out and being paranoid? Remember, the ball of my foot fits perfectly on both feet.

    Cheers.

    Note: I rolled up my jeans to get clearer photos; I have no intention of going full pilgrim with the buckles and high pants.

    Slipping in the heels can be normal for people and can go away after a bit of wear. You can't return them so you can only wait and see.

    I am always gonna wear black jeans with this set to keep it casual!



    Is it fly or goodbye?

    I have another 9 days to return them if I wish to do so, since I've only tried them on while standing on carpet.

    The dark color pallet might be a bit redundant, maybe some more contrast is in order? :confused:

    If there are pinstripes on the blazer too, can't tell from the picture, it would be too busy for me personally plus navy and black for me would be a no no too.

    The SC and PS look fine but what's up with that shirt? Paisley collar interior, untucked with a pink?/red? hem? IMO it's the shirt that's goodbye. :nodding:

    That's definitely a going out shirt.

    Depends on where you're going out to. If your objective is a club with dance music and poppers and lots of anal sex then it's a perfect shirt.

    I think then you would need to make some life adjustments.

    Absolutely. Dark shirt with bold stripes and "unique" embellishments (contrast hem & buttonhole stitching, flashy collar lining, hell even the buttons are sewn on with contrasting thread).
