You should give fabric descriptions. Words like "bonkers" always make me want to buy things.
Ah I wanted one of those but ended up with the POW cashmere and the water resistant hopsack.  If anyone has a 38 lying around I could be tempted ;).
Bernards were some of my favorite jackets ever. The construction was just perfect.
He allows you to send him a scan of your foot drawn on paper.   Can't wait for these to arrive. Now will have brown, blue and black Meccariellos at my office. 
Glad it worked out. That said, Carmina takes a lot of MTO orders. Perhaps they should make a simple template that would prevent anything like this happening. Could literally be done in a day. In fact I'd do it for a cordovan boot ;).

I have a few pairs of Carmina I picked up but haven't had a chance to wear yet. I don't have a particular urge to sell them, but figured I'd put them on here at a price where I'm willing to let them go rather than sit on my shelf. Prices are cheaper than buying from Gentlemens Foorware, Carmina and Skoak and you don't have to deal with shipping from outside the US.
