It appears at least that Carmina only offers model 10080 on Simpson. Although I like the last a lot, I know it doesn't work for a lot of guys. If it were an existing model on Rain, I would have proposed doing the GMTO on Rain. Sorry, dudes! (But not so sorry, since Simpson is a great last! )

For those of you who don't follow the Gentlemen's Footwear thread, I proposed doing a GMTO of Carmina model 10080 in burgundy museum calf. It's a three-eye derby on the Simpson last. According to Steve at GF, five people are interested, so we just need one more to make this happen. I think it will be a brilliant shoe. Pictures of the model and a sample of the burgundy museum calf below. PM @steveyoo1983 if you want to join us!

Any chance you'll do the Mayfair buckle in stainless?
