    Perhaps I'm going blind and missed the post but how did you guys size the oscar last compared to other Carmina lasts?

    From the group PM regarding the MTO, it seems like everyone is sticking with their usual Carmina UK size.

    I thought is said 12/10 I guess they are doing the European way and going the logical day/month. Anyway, I guess I will have to get in on it next time.

    Two pair of Carmina's, both on Rain last. Chukka on dainite, dub monk on leather.

    The chukkas are bought today at the opening of Skoaktiebolaget in Stockholm. Thank's guys for excellent service, and congratulations to a nice store with an excellent assortment!
    Chukkas have not gotten the first polish just yet, hence the difference in shine. In tan leather, but in a slightly darker batch of leathers than the rest of the Carmina tan models in the store. Will get mahogany polish to create a bit more depth in colour.
    Dub monks about three weeks "old". Sorry for crappy iPhone pictures.

    Shell MTO update.

    More people have joined, now we are 16! This is crazy! I hoped that we would be 6 and when i sat the dead line under one week from promoting it i thought it was a very tough goal since other MTO/group buys seem to take forever.
