Nope, I have the C&J Lowndes. There's already a whole thread just for Carmina sizing questions, I'd look over there:http://www.styleforum.net/t/291006/the-official-carmina-sizing-thread/0_30
Either the Loake Chester or Badminton might be nice options:

Why would a triple sole be a requirement? Very few manufacturers make that. The one that immediately comes to mind is Dinkelacker but those are going to be a lot more expensive than Loake. This one is $849: https://www.pantaclothing.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=HD1 Also, I don't know what you already have but a tan balmoral brogue isn't terribly useful, especially not with a triple sole.

My favorite wingtip blucher is probably the RL Marlow but it's out of your price range:In addition to the brands I mentioned above, Rancourt is now producing dressier shoes as well.
