When you go to Barcelona please check El Corte Ingles (big department store in Spain) They are stocking now Carmina shoes (again). In Barcelona you have a couple of them. One at the top of Las Ramblas and another one in Diagonal. El Corte Ingles used to stock Carmina until a couple of years back. When they stopped selling Carmina there was a big sale to get rid of stocks. Price were 50% off at what time

what is the difference betweem the 'jadwin' and London model from Santoni? (Both double monks?
I don't think they are corrected grain in the goodyear range. All aniline calf and saddle calf. They even have a cordovan range with Rendenbach soles (like Allen Edmonds or Vass).
Can't open the link, but cordwainer is a mid range producer of goodyear welted shoes. Same price level and quality than Berwick 1707 or John Spencer. If I am correct they are based in Almansa like Berwick or John Spencer. Carmina, Yanko or Lottusse are based in Inca (Mallorca). They retail in Spain for around €170-180 and are an excellent good value for money
