Hey guys, about how warm is the cameraman jacket? Think it would get me through a Tokyo winter with a shirt and sweater on underneath?
This is the one I'm looking at.
Worse thing about spice suede is that it continually reminds me of a certain girl band.
I'm with Mschapiro on this. The spice looks nice. But it wouldn't get as much wear from me. I need a chukka in the beige to brown range. Noix looks great. I could also be into snuff.
We're working with Gentleman's Footwear on the MTO. Don't have a price yet. But have a look at their site to get an idea of the cost.
I'm thinking it would be under $550. Will post what I find out.
C'mon aboard. Let's get this order in and the boots on our feet.
Yes, indeed. This will be a great makeup. Now we just need some more people right? We have three, do we then need three more?
Any sizing advice one Soller vs. Alden? If I'm a 11.5 in Barrie and TB (12TTS), safe to go UK11 on Soller?
I'm not sure if Hanoiboy was referring to my post above? I'm not into loden. Definitely would have to be noix, snuff or sand. Not totally opposed to crepe.
Just heard that Carmina may not be willing to do the 905 on Soller or Forest, so how about the 80179 instead?
As below (soller last) but in Noix suede?
Hi Steve, thanks for the info!
From what I've seen, they have done the 905 on Rain and Simpson (pretty similar chiseled lasts, I think). Sounds like they are not willing to do the 905 on wider, rounder Soller or Forest.
I think the model you posted is the 80176, no?
Pretty sure this is the 10025, no?
I like the 80176 a lot. I think that could work. And I think MSchapiro would be happy with the three eyelet as well.
FWIW, I also like the booted cousin of the 10025,...
Myself and Mschapiro are looking for some more members to jump on board for a Carmina MTO suede chukka. We're aiming for a causal to business casual style chukka that no one currently offers. Here's what we have cooked up thus far.
This chukka (Carmina 905 5 eyelet with close heel, flat welt, leather soles)
In Noix suede.
On Soller (or Forest) last.
Any interest out there?
