The guidi calf creases quite a lot. I think it's just the character of the leather - it's supposed to look more distressed and patina-y.
 Dunno about previous makeups but comparing to my other pair of Carmina shells the laces feel much more rigid and less floppy. Similar to what Viberg uses for their 10 eyelet boots - I think they wax it? Pretty damn awesome feeling tho.
 http://www.ebay.com/itm/291287576933 Here ya go - looks like it's the Holland & Holland makeup or something similar. Quite stoked to get them. The Carmina burgundy shell is pretty sick yea, it can do brown or even ravello tones in various shades of sunlight. I just noticed there's a tiny bit of the leather lining fraying at the vamp V-shaped cutouts on both boots tho - should I worry much? Looks like it's already quite protected by the stitching so there shouldn't be much...
The natty cxl sold out in record time fuuuuu
UK10 bruh. I already had the Carmina x Epaulet Greeleys in UK10 Forest and the Oscar fits pretty close. Carmina lasts are hella comfortableMy turn for a sizing question: how'd you size your EG Galways in the 64E last, half down or full down from US? I got a size 10.5UK coming in (wanted to get the skoak one, but tropical asian countries aren't nice for shearling linings so found an unlined one on eBay) and really hope they fit.
This has happened to me on a few #8 shells. Maybe someone more expert can correct me, but basically the 'glaze' dye that Alden applies on the surface in a thin film is wearing off. Not really that much you can do I'm afraid unless you feel like stripping the entire boot.
The StyleForum coupon code doesn't seem like it's working. :(
I would say they're just a notch lower than Carmina/C&J Linea Maestro wise. Given my experience with Aldens I generally rate Euro-made shoes higher than them (not being biased here, I used to be a huge Alden fanboy and've gone through quite a lotta pairs of shell boots).
Have worked things out with the seller amicably.       Won't bother you guys again with this.
