I can't speak to Carminas per se, but I've had plenty of sunken metal toe taps installed by B Nelson. It makes a huge difference in terms of toe wear. No experience with nails around the toe as you're describing, unfortunately.

Yes, he told me a while back that he takes returns on sale items, as long as they aren't listed final sale. The final sale items usually have big bold notices on them these days about being nonreturnable.
Thanks, guys! I love that cardigan—warm enough to wear without a jacket in the snow, obviously. It's from 2011 or so. The Navy Yard is an amazing place. My wife has been working on getting it listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Hey, guys. All this sunny LA talk reminded me I had some snowy Brooklyn shots to put up. These are from an engagement shoot with my now-wife taken last winter in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Blackwatch heirloom cardigan Blue point collar oxford Carmina Steinbecks [[SPOILER]]
