    Would also like information for a loafer that fits like rain or inca.

    Supposedly the xim or Alaro last are more generous, just not as sleek as uetam. I personally don't have personal fitting experience on these so it's a wild guess.

    so when I say a wide fitting last, I'm referring to the wide version of Rain or Forest. So if Simpson is narrower than Rain, it is significantly narrower than a wide Rain. For me to fit into regular rain width, I already have to size up a whole size from my normal size (which is why I do the wide version). If going to Simpson or uetam means I have to size up more, it just isn't going to work.

    Loafers are a very tough fit for me, so I can at least resist temptation there. They would really rock with denim and chinos for sure.

    Seriously I could imagine it. Steve are the loafers unlined?

    Those are some seriously wide feet.

    I have a pair of loafers on the alaro last. They're generous in the forefoot with a shallow instep. Overall they're tighter on me than my rain lasted balmorals.

    I've definitely seen Penny Loafers in Rain Last. I wonder if they can do this plain toe type of loafer in Rain last as well??
    The grey suede matched with some light colored jeans sounds amazing!
    I will ask the factory and get back to you gents next week!

    @justinkapur These loafers are lined but Carmina does offer unlined loafers as I have seen them at Pitti :)

    Steve, I have penny loafers on the Rain last and Carmina made (after some cajoling) burgundy shell cordovan tassel loafers on the rain last for me. I am sure they would do these---if asked correctly.

    Thanks. I love them. However, I paid 50% additional for them to have the MTO done on my own. If you guys do something like that with Steve, as a group, you skip that fee. That would make them even better. LOL.

    Mine too, though I'll have to wait until Sunday night to get them. Very psyched but a bit concerned I should have sized down half. Fingers crossed!

    I have the same problem and it means my half size up Uetem loafers are not worn often. I had a very painful break in period, but now they fit reasonable well.
