Yup, that's correct. Carmina shoe trees are included.

Are you expecting any new sportcoats anytime soon?

We'll get the Napoli in caramel duck canvas pretty soon. After that, our Spring coats should come around late Feb, early March.

Thank you sir! You're going to love them - those shoes came out bangin'

I'd recommend doing a special order for a 38 - either with factory finds or an in-season fabric. Matt can hook you up with that. Takes a few weeks, but the price is the same (and usually a bit cheaper with factory finds)

All the Rudies are special order now and we'll do the next round in about 3 weeks. We can definitely do those pants for you. The vests, however, are discontinued, so if we have your size or close to it, we can get that for you.

We made some a while back, but we dropped them from the line. There's a few remaining in our sale section.

The navy monks look great!

Gentleman,

Sorry if this has been discussed recently, but do you prefer to sew cuffs on your Rivet chinos or simply roll them up. I *think* that I prefer rolling.... I think. Headed to the tailor shortly!

Thanks,
Todd V

^ Not really rolling -- more folding. But in any case not sewn for rivet chinos.

 

And, of course, the real thing for Walts.

post #17677 of 34988
^I either wear my Rivets unrolled or roll/fold them up to keep them casual. Walts I actually wear uncuffed peepwall[1].gif (ha ha ha).

Today, corduroy factory finds Walts, EP Navy Label shirt, and Carmina ruby shell



I really like the Navy Label fit. Sleeves are perhaps a touch long, but this I haven't washed the shirt yet. I'll see how they feel after that.

Just want to state for the record that you and Adele have clearly chosen your career paths wisely. Enjoy and say hi to our friends at Carmina from all of us. smile.gif

Navy Monks are ridiculous. Bravo.

I'm not sure if I or anyone else has asked this question earlier, but wanted to move up in the shoe game and get my first pair of Carmina's. I'll preface this by saying that I work in a casual tech setting as a statistician and am able to wear anything to work as long as it's not sweatpants. I tend to wear the typical business casual outfits, though I'll occasionally throw on a blazer and tie. 

 

So, given that, my question:  What pair of Carmina's should I consider to purchase for my first pair? (need something versatile)

 

 

I'm hoping to purchase in a couple months. My NY resolution was to save more and not make impulse purchases so I'm gonna have to hold off for a while.

Personally, I like any of the shoes on the Forest last. I think the last bridges the gap between tough and sleek as well as any other, and does well almost effortlessly what Alden's Barrie last tries so hard to do but just can't. If you like a little quirkiness, go with the Navy calfskin, otherwise brown chromexel is an excellent choice that can work with almost anything.

I just grabbed the navy boot and its sweet. Reminds me of a pair of Doc Martens I bought (plain toe) on St Marks Place when I was 16. I loved those effin shoes, and now I love these...

Today:
Cramerton Cloth Chino
Navy Label TM Shirt
Carmina Navy Boot

I agree with NYI on the last and leather. I'd probably go with the Alt Wien Semi-Brogue Captoe Brown Chromexcel as it'll go well with your more casual outfits. It'll also minimize snarky comments from less sartorially-inclined coworkers that you might get for some of the dressier make-ups that Epaulet offers.

post #17685 of 34988

^ I think one of the Fitzgerald wingtip models is a little more versatile, but that's due to my preference for a full brogue over a semi-brogue. Regardless, any wingtip -- either the Fitzgerald or the Alt Wien is going to nicely walk the line between dressy and casual.

 

Actually, a wingtip boot is probably the most versatile shoe you can have. Plenty of Steinbecks/Sinclairs to choose from, too.
