    How do each of the Carmina lasts fit, width-wise? Are they all equivalent to a US D-width?

    Any timeframe on the new delivery? I'm looking for a pair of the Double Monks in the Inca last.

    How does the Carmina compare with G&G? Or C&J bench or handgrade?

    For those who've ordered Carminas or G&G can you let me know what duties/customs fees you were hit with on entry into either Canada or US? And what shipping service do they use?

    Anyone have better (re: natural light) photos of the Carmina Saddle shell oxfords? They look very yellow in the Armoury photos.

    Depends on how you like it to fit, Wes Bourne. I am a 8.5D and I got the Simpson is UK8.0 because they ran out of UK7.5, and it fits comfortably (with maybe a little room). I bet UK7.5 would work too and fit a little snugly.

    It really depends what US last you are talking about. Better if you can be more specific. I fit fine in several Alden lasts from UD7.5D to US8.5D, for example, so generalizations about US shoe size is quite pointless.

    EMS shipping I think, Takes like 3 days. Insane. No customs on Carmina to US.


    My foot says one full size, no question.
