    I find it difficult to get decent pics of shoes while wearing them but happy to oblige otherwise. Here you go, shoe pics in full sunlight:

    Thank you very much! They look more brown than I had expected.

    In response to MGC's shilling in another thread, I thought I'd come and check in here: a bit confused as to what make-ups are agreed, but I'd appreciate pricing and details by PM.

    By the way, as these are MTO, can I take it that width fitting options are available? And is there any other scope for personal customisation?

    Currently we are working on derby boot in Oscar last, Dark Brown CXL leather on commando soles. You have to ask @steveyoo1983 questions about the price and width options.
    There is no personal customization other than what we all agree to.

    Many thanks good sirs!
    We were at 5 participants on Friday and had one drop off over the weekend :(

    Good news is that we just have one joined and now back at 5!!
    If we dont get the 6th person by end of next week on 09/13, I will jump in myself haha
    Cheers!

    The color is definitely bit difficult to capture (dark burgundy with definitely some brown hues at the same time haha)
    Thank you for your kind words & posting up those pics!
    Cheers!

    I have Carmina jumper boots in the Oscar last, size 9.5. I also have Carmina shoes in the Rain last, both 9.5 and 10. The 9.5's fit me perfectly, with the Rain-lasted shoes (which are lizard and from Steve) being slightly tighter overall than the Oscar last (in shell). Both lasts are reasonably wide in the forefoot but not tall. I have flat feet - not sure how the Rain last would work for someone with high arches.

    My Rain in a size 10 is also shell. I put some high-quality leather inner soles in them and they fit well as a result.

    Overall, I would say that the Oscar last and the Rain last fit around the same, and "true to size" (for UK sizing). This is true for a flat-footer. YMMV if you have high arches.

    I'm afraid I can't measure any of these shoes for you as I'm travelling and have none of them with me.

    I have a hard-on for that shoe in a dark brown Scotch grain. Does anyone have a pic of the Carmina Adelaide?

    Got rain and oscar last sizing from Betty:

    Oscar
    Size 5.5 - 26.5
    Size 6 - 26.9

    Rain
    Size 5. 5- 26.9
    Size 6 - 27.3

    Looks like the oscar last is 4mm shorter than rain, when comparing the same size
