    actually, that's how a shoe should look like on a refined last.

    ^ "That" refers to which, fritzl? Simpson or Alcudia?

    I believe he is referring to the Alcudia given the emphasis in the requote. I tend agree with him, it's a shame they make/show so few models on that last. However, and likely a symptom of many of us having to do our shopping in front of a computer monitor rather than in one of their stores, Betty's response to me suggesting a model not listed anywhere online (though seemingly a near copy of the 10085 found online) indicates they carry more models than even those displayed in the collections online.

    Trying to get my alcudia on sizing recommendation for equivalent of a c&j 341 9uk last that fits snug? Tried inquiring within the carmina sizing thread but not much luck (except one response iirc).

    I didn't make it through 41 pages. Apart from NYC, where can Carminas be found? Sky Valet is no longer a dealer.

    Can anyone comment on Carmina's navy shell cordovan? In the web pix it looks almost black. Is that an accurate depiction of how dark it is?

    My first Carminas! A MTO wing tip on Alcudia may be in my future.

    The penny loafer Model 080142-001 on the Alaro last looks pretty nice to me, esp with the split toe.

    it's priced around $315 USD.

    Anyone know how the Alaro last fits compare to C&J 314 or 341 last?
