Can anyone comment on their recent experience with Carmina's "cognac" cordovan color? It seems that the color is very inconsistent depending on the shoe make up and/or vendor. Some cognac shoes appear very light while others are moderate to dark brown, and some have tints of red. I'm very interested in having a shell cordovan Oscar last PTB made in a brown/dark brown color, but am hesitant given the apparent inconsistencies in color.
To the extent cordovan-only custom orders are available, does anyone have an SA that they can refer me to? Either PMs or replies here would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Shaya.FYI--my first EG Cappelli was purchased through your store. I get compliments on it every time I wear it!
I am planning on ordering my first eg capelli 6 fold lined tie. Do the additional folds/lining impact the proper length of tie that I should be ordering? Generally, I require a shorter tie length than the standard 150cm offered by most tie makers. (My current custom tie length from Drakes is 145 cm) Thank you all for your help.
Just concluded my latest consignment with Spoo. As always, very happy with the transaction--extremely easy and efficient. Congrats to any members who got my Carminas!
The monks have been sold. With regards to sizing, I have no experience with other comparable brands such as AE and Alden. I will say that I believe that the Forest last runs generally TTS--for me the 7.5uk size is equivalent to my general size 8.5us. I do believe however that if you have a high instep/arch, the shoes are likely not for you. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
Pictures are in order as they are listed. Cheers.
Cleaning out the closet and making room for new purchases. Below are three pairs of Carmina shoes in a size 7.5uk. All shoes come with a Carmina box and Carmina shoe bags.

Carmina Forest Last Cap Toe in Dark Brown/Chestnut--7.5uk: $175 SOLD 2. Carmina Philadelphia Last Double Monk in Dark Brown/Chestnut--7.5uk: ...
I have only good experiences with Leffot. However, I was only in the shop once for a StC trunk show. They do let you look around on your own, but I never felt ignored by any means. In fact, Steven approach my girlfriend and I and assisted us while we were waiting to talk to Phillip. Che has also been great to work with and very prompt with emails. In fact, I hope to get an EG MTO soon, depending on the current turnaround time.
So the same person does not continue to work on your clothes for future orders? I notice that the quality of minor fit and finish details on my newer jackets have increased from my very first jacket. The sleeves are much more cleanly attached, without over puckering/sloppiness. My only "issue" is with the pants--the fit/silhouette is always the same, but I always require multiple visits to get the proper fit in the waist. However, I attribute this to a tailor's general...
