they don't, and from my understanding they may not have a whole lot of it. They dont currently make any shoes using navy calf but Allison once mentioned they had some in stock. Not sure whether they would even have enough depending on how many people commit to the GMTO.
Does Carmina actually have a burgundy grain? I've not seen any makeups that use it.
I might be interested but I'd prefer a two or three eyelet derby in grain leather. Personally, I think that JL works because the grain seems pretty tight. I'm not sure whether it would look quite as good with the grain Carmina uses since its a captoe oxford and would be formal but a more casual leather.
AE has not done GMTOs before so they dont know what everyone else is doing price-wise. Its my understanding from watchidiot's post that Paul might actually give us a price below retail depending on the number of orders.
