I've searched the internet far and wide, studied Carmina last comparison (that doesn't seem accurate). But I still need opinions from actual people.

I've got a pair of unlined suede chukkas on the oscar last, where the toe box was a bit narrow - being unlined it stretched but Still made me a bit wary. I think even sizing up half a size would've been tight widthwise.

Looking at the sineu last, is it more roomy in the toe box? Reading reviews it seems like it, but the last comparison says no. I think my forefoot is wide compared to my heels.
Oscar is tight on me but sineu fine.

Polo suede wholecut loafers.









It's been so long that I forgot I owned them - I think they work better/best with summer weight trousers, but I ran out for curbside pickup and didn't leave the car so it's not like anyone saw them.

I like these, but at even a half size down to UK9.5 from my usual UK10 the Rain last is cavernous on me with a huge heel.

Sineu accommodates the big toe well. Bit less the small toe. Great arch support. Have you tried rain? If so, similar fit.
Any thoughts on Sineu vs Forest?

I very much like my Forest chukkas. I have a pair of Rain Chelsea’s which are… good, not great. Loose heel, snug on the small toe. Trying to gauge whether Sineu will fit more like Forest or Rain (knowing that either way it’ll be fine… but hoping for more comfort). Thanks!

Forese was tight on my big toe but ok elsewhere. If rain is ok on you, sineu should be fine.

I know nobody here is "stupid" enough to buy any of these, but these scammers have become really annoying and sprout up like grass weed.


I have reported them to Carmina alongside countless others but of course, nothing will happen. If you see them around just spam the report button. Who knows.

Thanks and you're right - They are last year's PBJ AIBK-013 from their hank dyed Aizome line. Okayama has this year's KSAI releases and they are similar with a less pronounced "waterfall" pattern to them, but it's one of the aspects of the denim I've come to love.


To keep it on topic, here are some four year-old bourbon jumpers that were professionally polished in early 2020 and then shelved due to lock down.







I hope everyone is having a great weekend, as always!

Brand new pair and only been wearing indoor while wfh for couple of times and it looks like the inside left shoe leather is deformed and loose. The right pair is totally fine with no creasing.

What would you do or anyone know how to fix this issue? This pair actually fits very snug so I don't understand how there is such a loose leather on the left shoe.

This is weird. Maybe not lasted tightly when made?

I have weird feet and almost all my RTW shoes have this issue. It is a fit issue

I don’t think it’s happening, shell promo still on. Be surprised if they did again before end of the year. The time has been extended to 60 days advisory too. I await in anticipation my shell Calway and when they arrive they arrive. Whole new me...😂
