Leaves,I think the important takeaway from this is you have a loyal group of customers who trust you and revel in your customer service, unique makeups and transparency. I know who I'm buying shoes from.
Anyone interested in this exact shoe but in polo suede?
As I said, I gladly await Leaves' explanation and let's please return to the regularly scheduled programming.
Wow, glad you can make all sorts if moral judgments about me based on my decision to try a pair of shoes on in a store where I'm expected to pay 60% more than I pay at another comparable retailer. Didn't realize it was my moral compass that's out if whack. Seriously though, if Carmina is providing duch drastically different margins for different retailers that seems like it's something you should take up with them, not me.

Agreed as well, but in this case all three retailers I'm referencing have brick and mortar locations and online channels. Two are based in the US. That's clearly not the issue.

What's the proposed makeup? I think a sleek PTB with this would be awesome.
Just wanted to say my MTO Walts in tobacco linen-cotton are superb. Third wear on them and they are so damn comfy and versatile. Went from wearing them today with a sport coat and oxfords during the day to a t-shirt and Vans at night and they looked perfect in both settings. Kudos Mike and team!
I second this - have the ranger sole on a pair of ranger mocs and they are incredibly cushiony and grippy and have gotten more stable as time has gone on. Wholeheartedly recommend.
