    I thought I would add my 5 cents to this thread, with a picture of my Yanko Cambridge wholecut in burgundy calf (915 last) from @Skolyx of whom (both Skolyx and Yanko!) I can only praise!

    Anyone up for a MTO with Yanko? I believe if I get a group together, there is no extra charge for MTO. I was thinking of something like this in the 915 last.

    I'm in. Great price! How does Yanko sizing on this model compare to Carmina's rain last?

    Gentlemen,

    A few days ago I received a new pair of plain black oxfords in last 915.
    My first impression is very positive. The shoes look very well made, nice finishing details and the leather appears to be very good, smooth and nice.
    Haven't worn them outside my house yet, so my experience with them is very limited. But in the couple of minutes I wore them to try them on, I felt the shoes to be very comfortable and the last adapts very well to the form of the feet. It feels like it securely hugs the feet while at the same time is comfortable and roomy enough. This last feels quite like Carmina's Rain last, which is been my favourite last for the past few years.
    Quality wise I think they are similar to Carmina. But they are certainly way better than Meermin, even compared to Meermin's Linea Maestro.
    I was looking for a pair of black plain cap-toes and my first option were the Alfred Sargent Armfield, but decided to give Yanko a try after reading the posts in this thread. I have to confess that until I received them and had the shoes on, I was afraid I would regret my decision. Luckily I am very pleased and looking forward to start wearing them often.

    On a side note, I'd like to thank @Zapasman, who answered a couple of questions I had about this brand and model, and @Skolyx, who offered a top notch customer service.

    Edit to add a couple of pics:

    Do you get the same size as per Carmina Rain last?

    Navigated their website earlier, and realised that i am unable to identify which last each shoe belong to..

    The last is 915. If I am not mistaken, almost all of Skolyx's Yanko shoes are made in this last.

    As for the size, I'd recommend to go down 0.5 compared to Carmina's Rain last. I use a UK 7 in Rain and got these Yanko 915 in a UK 6.5.
