    This is in line with what Pepe told me when we were trying to figure out my size. I take a 9 UK in C&J 341, Septieme Largeur 174 and Barker Black Lavenum (I don't know what they call the last). I scanned a tracing of my feet with outline and inline, with a 20 cm ruler on the side for size reference. With this Pepe recommended me to size up half a size on the New Ray.

    While I'm on the subject, I just finished the details of my MTO order with Pepe, I'm just waiting for the invoice. Here are the details:

    Collection: MTO
    Style: 102374 - Split toe Norwegian derby
    Last: New rey
    Lasting: Hand lasted
    Size: 9.5 UK
    Upper Leather: Burgundy Shell Cordovan
    Lining Leather: Dark green calf
    Sole: Full rubber sole
    Edge finishing: Matching with the uppers
    Construction: GY·2 - Handwelted goodyear

    Since I was going to go with the rubber sole, I made a point out of asking Pepe about where they get them from. This is his response:

    Thought it might be of interest to some.

    Just received my dark brown oxfords on the Olfe last today:

    They are pretty much what I expected. First impression: Not quite as good quality as Carmina (leather wise anyway), and the last not as elegant, but a very very decent shoe at a great price. Maybe an eyelet or two too many, but hey...I sized up half a size from 7.5 to an 8 compared to a pair of Carminas on the rain last I bought recently. They were/are still a bit too snug ( but definately wearable). Good idea I think.

    Stef - are you saying that for the Carmina's you went down a full size but only down a half for the Olfe last?

    @lLevoosh - I went with my regular size in carmina. I should probably have gone up a half. This made me size up in meermin because the two lasts are pretty similar at least according to josé . I think he was right.

    Thanks for the reply and my fault for not being clear.

    Im in North America so my understanding was that I would size down 1 size from my north american size for Meermin. Are you sugesting only a half size down for the Olfe last?

    Thanks.

    finally got round to collecting these today - unfortunately José was a bit off with his sizing advice and these are a shade too large, I think I'd be better off with a UK9. If any UK buyers are interested in these UK9.5, brand new only tried on once, for retail, let me know.

    I may just pick these up.

    $295 is hardly a big deal and they look nice.

    I'm just worried about the width.

    If you find the picture somewhere in here that has all the lasts lined up, the RTW lasts are actually listed narrow to wide.
