Need more comprehensive details about new lasts! My head is spinning with all these names.
No mo Fox Umbrellas online?
Can someone go to Spain and beat my rustically dubmunx out of whoever is at the bench? Please?
Yeah, I was eyeballing those......
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.
Not sure anyone kopped yet but those are high up on my list next to navy Brummells.
US9D = what size in Carmina Simpson and Robert lasts? Armoury suggests .5 conversion, teh spoo says full size, so what is it?
For those with less patience or want to try it in store:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
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.
Separate names with a comma.
