Quote:If Simpson isn't a narrow fitting last, then which Carmina lasts fit narrower than Simpson?
Happy Friday/Weekend everyone
X-post from our thread about 2 MTOs we currently have going on now!
Have 5 interests each and just need on more on both!
Please feel free to PM me for more details
1. Snuff Suede Captoe boots with unlined shaft (Rain Last)
2. Burnished Burgundy U Cap (Rain Last)
Just one more on the U cap. Just one more. No peer pressure or anything.
You could always order two pairs...haha.

Enjoying my Cognac Carmina Full Brogue Oxfords (922) today.
One year old burgundy shell brogues.

love the 922s. very nice
Beautiful color...great combination
Any opinion (or details pics) of their dark brown suede versus the snuff and other colours or versus suede quality from other mid- and high-end makers?
On pictures the dark brown looks really unimpressive compared to the snuff, I wonder if it's just the colour or (sometimes) also the quality: I am really not prepared to spend € 300+ on suede that will just turn out to be meh. I'm looking for suede distinctively better than Meermin Classic Line. I've seen Carmina's snuff in person and it was beautiful but I need a darker coloured shoe.
I'd be interested in oxfords.
Okay - I think we might just be using different terms to describe the same thing. You don't describe the Simpson last as narrow fitting, per se, but agree that from a company that makes something in the order of two dozen lasts, none fit narrower than Simpson.
Thats two. I believe we need atleast 6 to qualify for a GMTO. I still need to check for the attributes that can be changed.
Anybody else interested in a pair of burgundy cordovan oxfords (Simpson) ?
