I think this is right. The shell dubs are obviously nice, but my favorite were, unexpectedly, the chelsea boots. Amazing color and last. Mike also told me that the calf skin used is sourced from the same place in France that Vass and EG use. Very cool.

any wide widths expected in these?

I'd gladly pay that if I knew they were going to do a good job. Here, I always have the fear that something's going to get screwed up...

I got to see the Carmina collection in person this past Saturday. Very impressive. My favorites are the shell shortwings, but I am holding out for the same shoe in a caramel calfskin with black contrast stitching if Mike makes that happen. Each shoe has a great color. There is enough variety to satisfy anyone's shoe needs.

Always nice to get a personal tour from Mike. I got to meet Matt this time, though I missed Adele. Almost makes me wish I still lived in NY instead of SF.

Mike, sent you a PM about some shipping questions. Thanks!
post #8182 of 37449
Newest pickup...these shipped out yesterday and arrived on my doorstep this afternoon. I was worried they might be too wide, but I'm very pleased that they fit perfectly. My Indys in size 12C feel wider than these Barrie-lasted boots in 12D. So glad I didn't wait and picked these up before they were gone! *click thumbnails to enlarge pics*

I'm wearing the Olive Guncheck right now, so I'm leaning that way. Still...

Oh man, good question. They're definitely my two favorites of the season. The Olive Gunchecks are really sharp, but that Navy Marl is softer than buttah...

No, the current chinos could be taken in, but there's no cloth to let out. You can do that on the Walt & Rudy trousers.

I am def going to purchase the Navy Donegals.
Thoughts???

Seconded - the Pale Grape is an amazing color. You'll really dig it.

Thank you! Really glad that you're pleased with them!

They usually take about a week to do this sort of work and I'm leaving town Thursday for a week. Really want to take one, if not both, with me.
What are you guys pairing the brown and wheat with?

If I've learned one lesson with people that make, alter, and work with clothing is that they can often be bribed with dounts. Really. Try bringing in a small box of Munchkins and see what that gets you.

Don't even remember what the the pants are but they have a bit of green in them and they are flannel. Picked them up a few months ago when Mike put them on sale.
Epaulet trousers
BB extra slim fit shirt
Alden #8 cap toe boot

Very nice. Glad that you didn't sell that watch - the Explorer is a keeper.

Oh man, come to the Lower East Side. Try $4 for a hem and a 15 to 60 minute wait. It's New York's paradise of alterations!

Yup, we're planning to launch Carmina on Thursday in the late afternoon. I'll post everything up here once they go online.

Glad that you like them - I've got a serious weakness for those Chelsea boots too. It's not a style that you see too often around here, but IMO it should be. A well-executed Chelsea boot is really versatile and hard to find. The Carmina model is one of the best I've ever seen.

Not for this first run, but we should be able to offer that next year in select styles.

Thanks Scott - it was great seeing you as well!

Rock and roll, thanks for picking them up! These are far and away my favorite boots now, I've been wearing mine a few days a week.

Update for this Week

Hey guys, we've got a bunch of stuff going down this week. Here's what's coming:
  • Carmina Launch on Thursday Afternoon: Six gorgeous styles.
  • Epaulet Scottish Cardigans: Slim-fit classic cardigans in gorgeous marled shetland lambswool. Made in Scotland and way the hell off the hook. Just came in today.
  • The LONG-AWAITED Rivet Chino "Service Pant." Same fit as always, but tweaked with a single cargo pocket on the side and flap pockets on the back.
  • Smith & Hoyt denim clearance. All pairs will be $95, the stock will go online Friday afternoon. I'll give you a more specific time when we get through the inventory on Thursday.

I've got a bunch of PM's to catch up on tomorrow. Please bear with me, I haven't forgotten you guys.

And for a little Carmina preview, may I introduce the Saddle Shell Cordovan Double Monk. Oh mein gott:

When do you expect to have the Epaulet Scottish Cardigans online?
What colors are available?
post #8190 of 37449
stoked that an oxblood cord finally popped up in my size (m) on buy and sell. Copped with all swiftness.

Next, re-up on copping power and re-up on rivet chinos.
