1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    That's a nice haul. The different shades/colour reproduction of the Polo suedes reminds me of #dressgate. Every pic looks different. Could you maybe take some outside in daylight? That would be greatly appreciated.
    PS: So far I like yours best. That's why. ;)

    Does Carmina do wide sizes?

    Depends on the answer. If Skoak is stocking the boots in that pic, I'll wait for those.

    I like some of the models on the Soller and Rain last, but i have no idea if Carmina even does wides. I know some lasts fit wider than others, but my one experience with an Inca last was not successful...

    Soller is pretty generous in width - I'd say it's likely their widest last. I think they might offer a wide fit on Rain, but I'm not positive. Some here might know which lasts are available in a wide fitting, but e-mailing Carmina would get you a definitive answer.

    Yes Carmina does offer wide option for the Rain last but for GMTO you would need Six same pairs.

    Isn't the Detroit Last also a fairly wide Last? I forget whether this was wider or not than the Soller however.

    I've never worn the Detroit but from visual comparisons it seems to be pretty wide. I know forest and rain offer wide widths but soller and Detroit run on the wider side.

    What about the inca last may I know? How does it compare with forest last?

    I would need a extra wide size to make Carmina work, for comparison i wear a G width in GG & EG. Don't know if anyone that wears an extra wide size has even successfully ordered a Carmina shoe in an extra wide size. I'll just have to email them to find out i suppose...

    Have you checked with Gabriel to see what he has to say?

    Quote:Both wide fitting. I can't say for sure which is wider - been forever since I tried on Detroit - my bet would be Soller by a small margin. I did try a wide size in Forest once - which fits a bit too narrow in standard width for me - and found it a bit too wide for my liking. Anyone need an unworn pair of loden suede PTBs in a wide UK 8.5, holler at me.

    Soller is longer but has more taper. I haven't tried both, but I believe that's per Betty.

    I honestly think Oscar and Rain are it for me. Soller has too much taper; my pinky toe feels it. I'd have to try another half size down to be sure, since right now I wear super thick socks or use a thin insole.

    I don't understand -- Soller has too much taper but you are trying it with super thick socks? Do you mean you would have to size UP another half size?
