    I would stick to your brannock size. I follow -1 for us to uk sizing. If you are 3E (wide feet unless I'm mistaken) then I'd try getting the shoes in G last. I normally avoid sizing up for width and prefer choosing wider lasts.

    I wear 8.5E Barrie as the only American brand i have. Else, 7.5 uk for carmina but I only take the wider lasts like rain, Detroit, soller.

    It's full grain leather. Seems like this guy has come over an old batch of Yanko shoes. These are how they looked years ago, nowadays they have closed channel stitching and slimmer, bevelled waist. Looks like a good deal, however.

    @j ingevaldsson I know that you've reviewed Yanko before but I had a hard time understanding the whole article due to the limited English translation. How would you compare them to Carmina and Meermin?

    Yanko is excellent for the price, especially if you live outside EU and purchase through the Swedish site skolyx.se who already has really low prices, and then you can deduct the high Swedish VAT plus Swedish krona is very low ATM. Compared to Meermin I hold them above also LM line, although LM are hand welted which is a pro, and compared to Carmina they are more or less similar in quality, or only a little bit off.

    Is the quality of one of the older models still as good as what you're describing? I'm looking at these:

    You've really gotten much better at patinating Niklas. You should have a workshop here in Gothenburg, where we all could learn how to patinate our shoes :)
