I posted this in the Carmina thread yesterday, but for folks who don't follow it, I thought I'd cross/double post here... MTO, Alcudia last, black calf (boxcalf), model 80214 (normally made on the Simpson last):
Yes, about 8 to 10 weeks.
Special order/MTO. I think you can basically order any model on any last. They normally only make a few models on the Alcudia last, and when I emailed with Betty several months ago, none of the stocked Alcudias (either web store or brick-mortar stores) were on a model I liked (she sent pics of about four different shoes), so I looked through all their models on other lasts and picked this one.
I just noticed a couple sweet 60/40's too, but in light blue. It's really hard not to kop several.
After a few months wait, here is my MTO order... It's Spoo's favorite model, but on the Alcudia last, rather than the Simpson last. I just prefer a toe shape that has some roundness to it, without much chisel or squarishness. To view my other Carmina shoes (Robert, Forest, and Alcudia; two brown, one black), here are some pics from a few months back -- http://www.styleforum.net/t/241469/carmina-shoe-p0rn/210#post_5237652.

Awesome Vanda!

^ haha. Here's something... My MTO order was shipped yesterday. Hopefully they arrive tomorrow, so I can post pics this weekend.

stitches -- I've purchased from everyone on your list (but one) and totally agree. I might also nominate Equus Leather and KW for being at the top of the list. KW for value and service. Equus for Charlie being as friendly/patient/responsive as David Hober. Other affiliates I've purchased from: VCH HY Epaulet ASW AFPOS Really, really great experiences all around.
