    Picked these up from SF's very own @SpooPoker for an incredible price in the B&S, thanks again Matt!

    I could certainly be wrong but that doesn't look like the Inca last to me. Toe looks too squared for Inca.

    Excellent! One last question othertravel: do you take the same size in Phila and Simpson? And Forest and Rain (if you know)?

    It's the Phila last. Inca is closer to Rain.

    Same size in Phila and Simpson.

    The Rain doesn't work with my instep. Haven't tried Forest.

    I'm organising a GMTO for a pair of simple brown leather Carmina chukkas organised through Gentlemans' Footwear if anyone wishes to partake.

    I can't find these available anywhere online with normal sizing.

    Very nice, I like how you got both. Kind of wish I went in on the chocolate. Not sure how I feel about the new tobacco though. Better than I thought it would be but really wish I could have gotten the old one.

    @Ironist Thanks! The new tobacco is very nice, imho. I'm not sure which is which, but the tobacco belt I have and the tobacco shoes I have are different shades of tobacco, which makes me believe one is from the first supplier while the other is from the newer. When comparing them side by side, there is very little difference. The shoes are a little bit darker and have their own character. You really need to see them in person to appreciate them. If you are on the fence about the new tobacco, I highly recommend them!

    Funny you mention that you like I got both. My GF asked me last night "is it weird if I got the same shoe, but in a different color?" At first I thought she was indirectly asking about the two adelaides above, but then realized she hasn't seen them yet lol! Of course my answer was, "no sweetie, I think if you like a shoe and can get it in two different colors, you should do it!"

    BTW, those suede loafers you have FS are very tempting. I wear a size 5.5 in the rain and a 6 in the simpson. I *think* I could fit into a 5.5 in the uetam last because my toes in my simpson lasted shoes are about two thumb widths from the end and I would think that isn't ideal for a loafer. Plus I think a half size is only 4mm.....
