    Hey there

    We are basically doing this single monk design

    [​IMG]

    Except in a brown museum calf / or perhaps one the darker brown shades in the Vitello range , and a peccary / deerskin combination.
    Calf below, and the deerskin / peccary above. The choice of peccary or deerskin can be discussed.
    This will be in the 946 last with single leather soles. Bevelled waist.
    Hope this helps.

    yup

    bought 7.5 and then had to return and go down another half size

    9US generally, yes. best fit is 8UK simpson and the 7UK 804 on my feet; with the 804 slightly eeking out the simpson.

    So you are 9US & you take 7.5UK for 804? So you are recommending going down size & half from your US size for 804 EB?

    From 9 US to 8Uk is one full size down then from 8UK to 7.5 so is that not one full size down & half? Unless I am mistaken

    He's saying he takes 9US generally and 7UK for the 804. So actually 1 size down but 2 numbers down, if I'm not mistaken...

    I'd be wary, even 1.5 sizes down from brannock for 804 is quite too snug for me, I'm definitely just 1 down from brannock (so UK 11 down from a US 12). He might just have very narrow feet. I'd email Skoak before buying anything to be sure.

    Stick with your Carmina Rain size if you know it.

    Skoak advised me to go 6.5UK for 804. I'm a 7.5D on Allen Edmonds 65 and 6.5UK on Meermin Hiro.
