    Very nice, very nice indeed. I just love the grain leather on this model - so thick looking and rich. Congrats on a great purchase! [​IMG]

    Any idea why it's called a jumper and a tanker (built like a tank?)?

    Jumper boots are designed after paratrooper boots. Tankers after...tank crew boots?

    Where a little style goes a long way
    Hi Leaves,

    Do you know if Carmina allows a last change on the antiqued adelaide that is on simpson last? In particular could it be changed to Rain last to allow for a wider fit?

    Yes, Rain is possible for this model (as a MTO).

    Leaves,

    I have a question about sizing. I am an 8.5/9 E on the Edward Green 82 and 888 lasts. What size would you recommend for the Forest and Oscar lasts? Specifically in regards to model 80249, the country calf wingtip, and model 813, the burgundy wingtip cordovan. I have a pair of shoes on the Forest last in size 8 UK, they fit ok, but I'm thinking that 8.5 UK might be closer to a US size 9, especially in regards to the instep, as it does feel a bit snug at times. Thanks.

    Does anyone have real life pics of Carmina shell cordovan tassel loafers? I've only seen pics on their website and had some trouble finding real life pics. It appears the Alden version has images in abundance.. :)
