Does anyone know anything about the different materials listed on the site? Noble vs. bear vs. velour high standard, etc.   Also, I went to checkout, and it seemed that VAT wasn't deducted at any point. Bummer.
Loving those sweats. Will definitely have my eye on the herringbone pair, and maybe the camel (Mustard? Honey?) pair.
Until recently, I had only ever had internally stitched calfskin gloves, and hand stitched peccary gloves, and I found both of those combinations to work brilliantly; the calf stayed sleek, while the peccary's rough texture was nicely emphasized. But I just picked up a pair of calfskin gloves that are externally stitched, and there's definitely something weird about them. Not nearly as chunky as the peccary pairs, but the combination just isn't as congruent as calf...
Holy SHIT those are nice. PMing for details now.
I'd vote Oscar. My jumpers on that last would definitely still look good if they were a few inches taller.
The grains look completely different. The hatch grain, as seen on the MTO page, is a cross hatch patter, while the scotch grain is more "pebbled."   See here for the scotch grain: http://www.styleforum.net/t/277505/epaulet-x-carmina-mto/2000_100#post_6030582
I love that tan wholecut. Beautiful.
Ha, how did that happen?! I have sunken metal taps in most of my shoes, and I've never slipped because of them (and I always step toe first off curbs and down stairs). Are those from the web shop? If so, I've been eyeing them ever since I knew Carmina sold shoes online. Give them a few good layers of wax; that's what I did with my first calf boots from Carmina, and the leather looked MUCH nicer and more supple with a good shine.
Pretty sure Carmina's web shop still has a snuff suede bal boot with a York sole. 
I haven't seen this thread in a while, so here are the two pairs I just picked up from the Dents sale. Unlined peccary, and cashmere lined peccary with a buttoned wrist, both in cork. This is the first time I've felt peccary, and I must say I wasn't expecting it to feel so creamy and smooth, while still seeming quite tough. I'm as happy with them as anyone could be when receiving gloves during 85*F weather, and am excited to wear them in a few months.   One more...
