    Yes, I understand that. I mean there is sizing difference between the exact same last and model.

    Looking for positive reinforcement for my first pair of Carmina's:

    Brannock 12 wide-side of D
    Alden Barrie: 11.5D (perfect fit)
    Alden Van: 12D
    Alden Aberdeen: 12E
    Alden Leydon: 12E
    Allen Edmonds 65: 11.5E
    Allen Edmonds 511: 12E (?)
    C&J 325: 11UK Conniston too narrow in forefoot, 11.5 Marlow Wingtip too wide in heel
    Carmina Simpson: presumed 11.5UK (tried a 11UK once, was short and narrow)

    I'm thinking a 11UK Forest last should work?

    Did you have to contact Carmina to find out the width of the outlet models? I haven't noticed any width indicators on any page for any of the items in the outlet section.

    11UK is probably your best size across the board, except for Simpson and Alcudia.

    If you are on the wide side of 12D forest might be snug. Soller, Inca, and Rain would likely work well (though rain will have the least room in the toes).

    No I knew as all outlet shoes are standard width unless otherwise indicated this pair was marked EEE. You will normally see this after the last for example this one was marked Rain EEE. I would say it's kinda rare to find them in the outlet but once in a while.

    Here is an example https://www.carminashoemaker.us/mens-derby-shoes/norwegian-shoes-brown-leather

    looking for sizing advice - would one take the same size in the Rain and Forest lasts?

    Thanks! The width is certainly my main fear. Might have to stick to more Alden (first world problems).

    Tempting as the make-up is pretty much perfect for my needs.
