Simpson 9.5 seems good since cordovan is lasted looser, but I have not tried Simpson.
You have clearly already seen my inputs, but jet’s perspective:
1. I don’t recommend doing an MTO with a last you have never tried
2. If you must do an MTO with a last you have never tried, and are 10.5D on the AE 65, 9.5 UK on Simpson is about the safest bet you could make.
Welcome! I like your line of thinking regarding sizing. Probably a wise choice on Simpson. However as Carmina goes, they recommend to never try a new last/size in a MTO. Perhaps you could get into the MTO and get a trial pair to confirm sizing and adjust if needed. Sara @Carmina might be able to help.
Thanks everyone for your input—very much appreciated. I'll look into whether a "trial pair" is feasible and otherwise mull over my risk tolerance.

Anyone have links to photos (preferably on the foot) of *Oscar or Llubi lasted Chelseas*? I've seen a number of previous comments with interest in an Oscar chelsea but concern over how the two might mesh. Haven't been able to find examples other than a stock photo of this model on the Carmina site:
I get heel slip with an Oscar last that is usually tolerable with thicker socks, break-in, and lacing in a boot (it doesn't work in a low shoe)- but I don't know how that will play in a Chelsea... Any advice appreciated

Having a little experience with the Oscar last and Chelsea boots, I'd suggest a sleeker last. I've got numerous Jumper boots on the Oscar last and I wouldn't consider it in a Chelsea.

Where did we land on a Carmina For Sale thread ?
Right here - the Spanish shoemakers Buy/Sell/Trade thread:


I think that the idea is that you create a post in the Buying and Selling forum, and then you can put up a post in the Spanish Shoemakers thread about it, with a link back to your post in the B&S forum.

Gentlemen, a quick question if I may. Who owns black chromexcel and how does it age? Does some brown/copper tones start seeping through to the surface over time, or does it just remain same color (assuming don't apply polish). Any help is welcomed. Thanks

Thinking about ordering my first pair of Carmina in Bourbon cordovan, in terms of aesthetic is the Detroit last the most similar to Alden's Barrie last?
