 Refunds take weeks, as Drew has to do them, and they also get you blacklisted, so you can't order again. Spots sold retain their queue progression, and loyalty discounts if applicable.
All three are probably actually pretty representative of Carmina's saddle shell. Everyone outside of Alden seems to have a huge variance in what they receive from Horween from batch to batch with the same name, hop over the Vass thread for some more examples.  As far as the boots are concerned, what are you wanting them for? Carmina will make better boots for wear with suits, et al, but if you're wanting them for wear with jeans, etc, they'll do nicely.
 Think the second image is sand suede, not snuff.  Pity we don't have more for the chocolate brown. My current pair of dark brown suedes are on their way out and these would be excellent replacements.
Think he might have been referring to the versatility of the jumper, moreso than the longevity.
I'll put my hand in for dark brown if we have enough for that too. Double leather or dainite, or the commando sole, even.

 The collar is the sticking point for most, I believe. The rest of the shirt is good to excellent, but the collar matches really well to a classic button down collar style which seems to have disappeared over time.
 I think they're just showing them off as to show the capabilities of the Carmina MTO program, after all, most GMTOs started after another member orders something and then the forum wants to reproduce it on a larger scale while avoiding the single MTO fee. Talk to Leaves if you're interested in learning more, like the specific colour of material used or how to refer to a design if you're wanting to order a MTO of your own.    Really like the suede PCT boots on the Rain,...
