Those are great looking shoes. Congrstulations.
J Gilbert has an indy shoe - either dark suede or rough chamis, if I remember right. Leffot has indy shoes in blue suede and milk shade suede ( an off white) and, I think, in natural chromexel. Haberdash in Chicago also has the milkshake suede Indy shoe. I think Tassels in Hong Kong stocks a suede Indy Shoe as well.You may also want to consider for a similar look the mocassin in blucher - I don't know if that is the tight name, but the shoe looks like the Lhs loafer,...
All of my Alden's have always set off the machines. I ended up getting some cordovan slip - on cordovan dress shoes from EG just for travel to avoid ruining the benefits of the pre check line. And they go off and on easily when pre check is not available.
Excellent! I am with you as to leather soles.
Pink Panther and others,My original proposal about this when the spice suede thought fell through was a spectator on the captoe Adelaide design. The concept morphed into the full brogue design by a poster helpfully posting a Carmina spectator on a full brogue.Steve has confirmed that the Adelaide - the captoe design - can be made as a spectator so that the Grey suede/ navy calf can be made as originally conceived. I would prefer the captoe to the full brogue. Would you...
What windbaggery.That is exactly what I can do. Your acolyte and you who are so wrapped up with a brand that you feel entitled to make repeated personal attacks (stupid ones at that) have to live with what you believe is the grave injustice that I can choose to refuse to participate in your foolishness.With what you have shown concerns you, and how you express it, you really belittle the meaning and origins of your screen name. You ought to change it to PizzaPizzaBJ (BJ?...
Righto this analysis is.
i own a number of Carmina shoes, and have thus given Carmina a fair amount of money.  I was writing in response to a group made to order -- that is, a plan to give Carmina more money -- that went awry because Carmina exited the particular leather.  I have said a lot of nice things about Carmina as well as inveighing against the spice suede thing.  I will leave it at that.  
I was wondering about the expression of wonder when I looked at the third line of the listing.  $1,150.  I guess anything is possible if you ask.  I always wonder if the "there is a schmuck born every minute"  approach really works?
i understand this sentiment.  I had the same qualms.  I have found that this shoe works really well with sport coat and slacks, specifically all shades of grey wool pants, but partcularly medium grey to charcoal.  I think that combination looks really sharp.  The balmoral style makes the look more polished than a derby.   I suspect the shoe might work with navy, and it would certainly go with chocolate wool pants as well.  And more adventurous dressers might find it works...
