    Picking the thread up again. How does sizing compare to the Simpson? I am interested in the 199 and 174 lasts. Thanks!

    I find that the 199 last is very narrow - I went up a half size on my one pair of 199-lasted shoes from SL (from a UK8.5 to a UK9). I' have only one pair of Carminas, which I took in a UK 8.5 - the 199 is definitely narrower. I have one pair of SL in the 224 last, which I took as a UK8.5, and they fit fine.

    Thank you both for replying, appreciate it. I wear a 8.5 on the Simpson, 8.0 on the Rain. I do think that I'm actually somewhere like 7.75 on Rain and 8.25 on Simpson (ie, I can wear the 8.0 on Simpson if need be), so I have a feeling that the UK 8.0 on the SL 199 last should be a good fit (tighter than most lasts, but maybe not as narrow as the Simpson).

    I have narrow feet so 199 should be good. Thanks again!

    Edit: Other lasts I have, in case you can give further guidance:
    Carmina Simpson UK8.5
    Carmina Rain UK8.0
    Enzo Bonafe 946 UK8.0 (not ideal because instep too high and length slightly short)
    Yanko 915 UK8.0 (Chelsea boots)
    Yanko 915 UK8.5 (double monk-straps; note this and the chelsea fit very similar, I'm not sure how)
    Grenson Sharp UK8.0
    Grenson Dylan UK7.0
    Meccariello Mayfair UK9.0E

    Not sure. My 199 is in suede. Simpson is in calf. Suede does strech a little.

    However I find SL very comfotable compared to Carmina and Meermin.

    Yesterday I tried some shoes of the brand, I like the model Gatsby in the 198 last, I felt nice the 9.5 UK. I also tried a Chukka in suede but with a rubber sole. They only have that one in 10 UK and looks the same length as the Carmina Inca in 9.5 UK.

    How do you feel about the brand?
