    Very helpful. Since these have the rugged soles, I would be wearing them in Fall/Winter and like the darker look.
    Bass on my research, you should take same size for Rain and Oscar. I have only tried Rain to date.

    Hey Steve,

    Speaking of Detroit.

    I'm curious as to why you wear the Detroit last one full size smaller than the Barrie last and a half-size smaller than the Rain last. I thought you recommended to take the Rain and Detroit in similar sizing or take 1/2 size from Barrie last.

    Sorry I dont mean to confuse (and shouldve clarified) but my current barrie and van at 6.5 is bit loose and 6 might fit better for me....plus my feet is quite weird as my right foot is about half size bigger than left.

    I give half size down from Barrie for Detroit (and Rain) based on other customers feedback
    Again this is all subjective and everyone's preference / tolerance level may differ :)

    Let's not forget that everyone's feet are different.

    Me too! I was glad that my experiment worked out.
    I think they'd look really good darkened, too. Go for it!

    X-post from gentleman's footwear thread:
    In preparation for fall and winter, anyone interested in a grain chukka on dainite? Thinking:

    3 eyelet chukka on Rain or Detroit
    [​IMG]
    In the handfinished grain leather like on skoak's recent saddle shoe:
    [​IMG]
    I like this color, but we should be able to specify any variation since its handfinished.

    Any takers? Getting this in now would get them here in early/mid fall

    I am really desperate for a pair of Unipair Carmina 80330 in Navy Cordovan ... shamefully my size is no longer available (9.5 UK) ... Of course it's as usual ... too many shoes already but this is just the one I need - Appreciate if you can let us know when you get a restock although I hear there is a shortage blue shell at Carmina. I just had to post a picture from your website :)
