I have a high instep and skinnier heel. For j fitzpatrick shoes a uk7 suede monkstrap is quite roomy, and uk6.5 wholecut derby is ok. For Carmina uk7 alcudia is slightly tight on the top and forefront of my foot. And AE park ave US8 fits well. I am leaning towards UK 6.5 on the 915 last, or should I go with 7? What about the other lasts? Thanks
I think that would be a good starting point. I just started a new job at a legal position that requires suits, so wanting to learn more about fabrics to possibly save some costs for high quality suits with CMT. After shades of navy and shades of charcoal/gray, what are the next couple of acceptable fabrics?
Because of the high cost of imported fabrics here, I wanted to learn more about purchasing fabric on my own. I read through several of the most recent and early pages which gave me some general information. I know the world of fabrics is extremely vast, but is there somewhere I can read for a summary/primer to get a general understanding and overview? Thanks!
Is there an ETA for carmina split-toe derby from Sept? (http://www.styleforum.net/t/480796/carmina-split-toe-blucher-in-brown-museum-calf/50_50) Thanks!
Just received a new pair of carminas (http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/uk-7/products/carmina-autumn-brogue) and around/inside the broguing as well as the wingtip there's lots of black colored residue. I'm guessing its some type of glue? Is there any way to remove or minimize this black residue? Thanks
@TtownMD @prh002 @moixet @sarteaga - maybe I think currently 4 confirmed, 1 maybe is where we stand
Not much time left before the price jump, would really like to get a Polo Suede Balmoral boot done! http://www.styleforum.net/t/506127/carmina-polo-suede-balmoral-boot-forest-last/0_50
I haven't contacted anyone yet to organize since we don't have requisite 6 yet, but I believe through Skoak it would be 4600 SEK (3680 SEK w/o VAT) and through the Carmina site ~400 Euros w/o VAT. I think all the recent GMTOs through Skoak are have been 50% deposit upfront though and through Carmina I believe its 100%
Looking to do a balmoral boot in polo suede, need just 1 more! Who wants to be the hero?! http://www.styleforum.net/t/506127/carmina-polo-suede-balmoral-boot-forest-last/0_50
Ok just 1 more hopfeully then! @sarteaga are you still on the fence?? @TtownMD do you guys mind if the boot has plain captoe? I personally think it looks cleaner than a punch captoe, especially in the balmoral style but I'm open to whatever the group prefers
