They'll come in Navy, Cocoa Herringbone, and Grape.
I've got photos of Navy & Cocoa, and they got delivered already. I can probably put them online tomorrow afternoon. We've got decent stock across sizes 30 - 36. Grape is going to come in about 3 weeks, but I'll post up a fabric scan tomorrow.
Now, there's two things to note on these fabrics:
1. This will most likely be the only "ready to wear" cutting of Walts. I'm going to offer matching, MTO Southwick jackets in all three colors for $795. You can choose your shape (Weller, Caine, Daltrey) and we'll do those on an individual basis. We can also take preoroders for Rudy's and Walts in 28 or 38.
2. The matching jacket will be impossibly ace with the trousers. With the trouser price at $225, you'd be getting a full US-made suit in genuine Scottish Shetland tweed for a tiny bit over $1K. Good lord. Perfect match for all those Carmina bal boots that were ordered!
3. This cloth is HEAVY. Not quite as heavy as Harris Tweed, but it's still serious. It's great if you live someplace with a cool Fall and cold Winter. For guys in warmer spots, I will have lighter weight Donegal tweeds for you in September.
I know, it was crazy! I actually just ordered one unit in that size for each style because we've tended to sell Carminas overwhelmingly in size 8-9.5US.
Yeah, not sure why the shoe trees didn't arrive. I sent an inquiry, but they're still closed for August holiday, so I won't know for a week or two.
For belts, we actually got the first batch. Black and Chocolate Leather, and Snuff Suede. No shell yet, but I imagine that they'll ship that after they get back up and running. I'll put the first three belts online next week. The Snuff one is BOSS!
For color, I'd actually put it in between those. It's more like our medium grey flannel and navy flannel had a child.
This made me think of a question I had about Carmina shoe trees. Sometimes I see it listed that an order of Carminas will be shipped with complimentary trees. Is that for most Carminas you offer or just for the special orders that you have to put down a deposit for?
In a related story, I had a dream last night that I returned my 11.5UK black Salinger double monks, and I exchanged them for an 11UK. I tried them on and they were the most perfect fitting shoes I ever wore. Then I woke up and was mad I didn't actually have the shoes. Is it a bad sign I'm actually having dreams about Epaulet gear?
We only include Carmina shoe trees with the MTO projects. I include them in the purchase price as a thank you for everyone committing to the order.
At some point we'll have them available for general sale, but they're going to be pricey. I believe around $100. It's due to the weight and the enormous duties on wooden products from the EU.
And I like your dreams!
