    Thank you sir, and I agree, now I know where to buy from at the very least!

    Thank you, I've always wanted a captoe and I was sure I wanted one for my first pair in brown! Hopefully they'll develop a nice patina.

    Are those the same pair being sold at a Gentlemen's Footwear, affiliate vendor?

    Anyone have experience with the Xim last? I picked up a pair on deal yesterday but have no idea if the size will work for me. I am 7.5 Rain and went 7 on the Xim

    Thanks!

    They're actually the "Ellison" being sold at Epaulet. It's in the Rain last and medium brown I believe. My next pair is going to be from GF though.

    Just bought two suede loafers from carmina direct for the spring and summer. Odd that I can no longer access the site to check my order after I placed it and there is no forgotten password link. What's up with that :confused:? Hope my order gets shipped to me okay. Anyway, looking forward to getting my first carminas.

    Congrats on your purchases! Did you get a confirmation email? Was your credit card charged? When I order direct from Carmina both of those happen almost immediately.

    Fantastic colors!!!
    Saddle has got to be one of my favorite Shell Cordovan colors (after Ravello - which is pretty much impossible to get these days.)
    One of these days, you have to line up all your shoes collection & take a group shot!!!

    Cheers.

    Gents,

    I wear US 9D in the 341-last Crockett & Jones for Peal & Co 341 shoes, an 8.5E in the Allen Edmonds 5-65 last and 9D in the AE 1-last and EU42 on the Edetal Last.
    Do you think a UK8 in the Rain last would fit me well?

    Thank you.

    I wear an 8.5E in the 5-65 last as well, and when trying on the Rain last a size UK7.5 was the best fit for me.

    I hope that helps.

    It looks like the stitching is losing caused by the lasting process. Would it be a problem over time? Construction defect? Other than that. They look really nice! Thanks in advance
