    you are probably right. i would have ordered from Vass already but im afraid of all the fees. also hesitant of sizing. probably dont need any more shoes either.

    Ola, I'm considering a pair of Carmina boots but it will be my first pair. How do they compare to staples such as EG and C&J any input? Personally I feel Alden and C&J finishing and details are a bit below par but I do have a few pairs. Just want to know what I'm getting into here before I order a custom pair.

    I have these in 10UK, and while I cannot compare them with Aldens, they are definitely wider than Forest last, and similar to Rain last in the same size. But for a winter boot, it is not bad to have a little extra space if one wants to wear thicker socks, plus the derby lacing means you can easily tighten them a bit more if they slip in the heel.

    I guess I should have been more specific with the above question.

    I'm currently comparing the RL Lindrick boot with the Carmina Sinclair. I have the Lindrick in a wingtip shoe and loafer (formerly Dalton) and I love the wingtips and want a boot version but I'm considering the Carmina even though they run a little more (taking the RL semi-annual sale which is when I purchased my other Lindricks).

    Does anyone own both of these and can comment on their fit, looks and quality? I know this a Carmina chat but I think I can get an unbiased opinion.
