    So I can no longer resist the Carmina GMTO burgundy shell jumper. However, I do have a quick question regarding sizing. For reference I wear a UK 7.5 in the Soller Last (wide fitting last). The width on this last is perfect, but would be unwearable if any narrower. Based on this I suspect a UK 8 would be necessary on the, somewhat more narrow, Oscar Last. That being said I would appreciate anybody's advice or experience with these two lasts.

    Correct. Remember, croc and gator are two completely different mats.


    Correct also.

    I actually talked about this with Gabriel at Skoab the other day, as this possibility somewhat surprised me. He told me that a Chelsea on the 888 last wasn't possible to do as a "regular" MTO, and that the only way to this would be through a "Top Drawer" MTO. Are you aware about this? This means a higher level of workmanship of course, but also a hefty surcharge...

    Yes that is strange indeed. Maybe its best to make sure again then? Or maybe someone from SkoAB could make things straight for us in this thread? Leaves? Gabriel?

    They won't make the Chelsea on any other last than 82 or 202. I had this discussion with them just a couple of months ago and they were unyielding. Who at EG told you they can do it on 888?

    We have not yet placed another restock for this model so I cannot specify a date (there is also a lead time of about 3 months) but it will absolutely be restocked in a UK 9.5. However, this restock will probably not arrive before the summer. Please e-mail us to be placed on the waiting list for the time being, [email protected]

    818 sounds like a decent price for croc, any pictures of croc carminas please?

    So all exotics are 'MTO'?
