How much different are the Simpson to Rain last?
Much obliged gents! Here is a link to our thread if you want to discuss further!
Please feel free to send me a PM as well
Really love that noix suede. Have to do an MTO with it one of these days!
Similar shape, very different width / volume, I would not advise Simpson if Rain is a good fit
I found Uetam last so slim and narrow that I had to size the loafers up by 1/2 as compared with simpson last.
I find the fit for Uetam last impossible for me (and I fit in the Simpson last just fine.)
@Ironist may i know are they MTO?
Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments!
No, these were stock from Carmina direct.
Yeah, I definitely sized on the risky side. Half a size down from my usual size in other brands. I did that with other loafers too so I thought it would be worth a shot. Loafers are just tricky to get the sizing right.
for anyone in the US who has ordered directly from Carmina, around how much was the customs fee?
You can do a search to confirm, but a poster paid about $35 - $40 for a pair of $650 shell.
I did not, or rather, have not received a customs bill yet. Now that I stuck my foot in my mouth, I bet one comes today...
I've gone direct twice with no fees
This happened to me. Got the bill a month and a half later.
If you look at my marketplace thread for the Ruby Shell Captoes on the Rain last, you should see some photos comparing it to a #4 belt that I purchased from Horween's web shop a while back.
