If you keep an active eye on the tracking (which, lets face it, we all do here), you can almost wipe out the delays. The only delay I’ve had is if it arrives on Friday or the weekend - it must be the B team on during the weekend in Customs, they’ll get around to it.
Good choice - Carmina does Cordovan very well.
Aaaand it’s with Customs now based on the tracking. So I contacted them and was told tomorrow, they’ll let me know how much ransom to pay. Which is good, cause my boots will then likely arrive at the office just in time, while I’m there next week.

Great news CEP - as my wife likes to say: that was quick! Pics or it didn't happen 🤣.

Could anyone inform me about cordovan wholecut fit?
As they aren’t lasted as tight as calf, howmuch looser are they?
In one of Kirby Allison videos Carmina’s associate mentioned they sometimes size half down with cordovan wholecuts.

I’m in between sizes. 6UK is good length but width is too tight and 6.5UK is little too long but width is good.

Any input?

Difficult to answer. Personally I have a slim heel and tend to err towards slightly tight width if anything. You can always stretch it slightly at the cobbler but you cannot make the shoe smaller if you take the bigger one. Of course this advice only works with small fit issues.
