Looking for some suggestions for black chelsea boots. Not looking to spend too much beyond the Carmina/TLB price category.

Considering Carmina Simpson, but from what I can tell, it may be too narrow for me. Love the way it looks though.
I don't have much experience with Carmina lasts, but open to trying something that has an average instep and width. Not a fan of the way CJ chelsea's look.

Here are a few other makers I've tried for dress shoes so you can gauge fit.

TLB - Picasso is just a tad narrow and offers some pressure around pinky. Instep is ok - not perfect, but not too high. A little lower would've been even nicer.
AM - Chisel 4 works extremely well in RTW UK 7.

Any suggestions?
