    I have not noticed a difference in size between the Rain and Inca lasts, just the shape of the toe box. I was told by the gentlemen at the Armoury to size up from an 8.5UK to a 9UK when moving from the Inca/Rain to Simpson last.

    Simspon and Alcudia are narrow lasts. If you're on the edge of D/E I would definitely size up from normal.

    You are welcome. It was a pleasant surprise the first time I used Chrome on the Carmina site.

    Nice pants. Details? What kind of jacket do you wear those with, or are they part of a suit?

    After a few months wait, here is my MTO order... It's Spoo's favorite model, but on the Alcudia last, rather than the Simpson last. I just prefer a toe shape that has some roundness to it, without much chisel or squarishness. To view my other Carmina shoes (Robert, Forest, and Alcudia; two brown, one black), here are some pics from a few months back -- http://www.styleforum.net/t/241469/carmina-shoe-p0rn/210#post_5237652. Alcudia, black calf (boxcalf), model 80214: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You can rarely go wrong when you draw inspiration from nature.
