    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I orderd my first pair Carmina (Simpson last) last week and they arrived yesterday. The shoes fit very well and they look great. Thanks for the fast shipping![​IMG]

    I think you are right. Now I just need to get them added to my string loafer shipment to avoid double shipping. Hopefully not too late.

    The peeps at Skoak will have better info, but I know it is a wider fitting last - more in a group with Rain and Soller - opposite end of the spectrum from the slender Simpson. I tried on a pair once, but it was long enough ago that I can't give any fit specifics other than generally a wider fitting last.

    @Braddock - very sharp!

    Got them before they were shipped. Now string loafers and chukkas headed my way.

    I'd love to stock more large sizes but unfortunately everything above UK 10.5 sells really slow and because of limited storage capacity we have to prioritize.



    Yes, I recommend using the same size for Detroit as for Rain and Soller.

    BBBB had a few interested parties but hasn't hit the 3 commits needed for GMTO yet.

    ^^ I'll be in on one of these I think...dunno if I want brown or burgundy....how does the last fit? Will it fit similar to the 946 chisel toe?

    I'm assuming so but this will be my first bonafe - @Leaves can you please advise on the fit of 2102 as compared to 946?

    I'd commit with a strong preference for Burgundy and chain stitched Norvegese only (not the rows of stitches). I think sizing in this last is to go with the Carmina Rain equivalent (which I don't have either)...

    RogerP you in??? ;)
