I think the grain tassels make for a nice contrast. I'm just not in love with the color of noix suede. Too yellow imo. I'd like something a bit more like these. What do people think about having a medallion btw?

"Too yellow."

 

Proceeds to recommend the most yellow goddamn shoe anyone has ever seen.

- I like the idea of doing something closer to snuff suede, but I have no real problem with noix either.

- I agree with your assessment about the grain leather.

- My preference would be sans medallion.

- Maybe we should take the discussion about these MTOs to PMs so we don't clog up the thread.

Medallion is no option. Carmina don't offer the same freedom in the MTO program as G&G for example, you can't change an existing design.

That makes it simple enough!

BTW what's the expected delivery date?
post #3246 of 8134
Don't know for sure until we place the order so Carmina can plan the production. They say 12 weeks as a standard time.

Thanks!

 

And I'd be down for a snuff suede, somewhat G&G lookalike from Carmina. I'll PM my interest.

I PM'd Frank about a snuff color. I'd be down for this.. 'yellow' as well though.

 

This will be the first case of me buying shoes I might never wear and the second case of me buying shoes that I should be considering after I have staple shoes.

11 posts since i wrote all info about the two MTOs and the suede color already changed smile.gif

Please read post 3239. It's Noix suede for the tassel and not snuff. IF there is six people who want snuff i can order both but i will fill the orders for Noix first.

Thanks

It's too something (orange? saturated? I'm not a goddamn painter, why am I on trial? lol8[1].gif). Also, roses are grey, violets are grey, my color vision is partially fucked.

 

Anyhow, I'm more not sold on noix then I am sold on any other particular color. As I understand it carmina has a rather extensive selection of suede, so why not try something new. I mean look at the recent grey adelaides, they turned out fantastic.

I now remember you mentioning this for our last MTO. Was this carminas response to you asking, or to skoab asking? Cause I could understand them saving that option for resellers wanting to differentiate their offerings. I also happened across the photo evidence below just recently, though their policies could have changed since the shoes in question were made.

 

 

 

Sans medallion.

 

 

 

With medallion.

 

 

I think the last ones are Namors btw.

Maybe it's unwise to float another competing MTO loafer idea, but I'd like one for late spring... what do people think about exactly this model and makeup (snuff suede string loafer on Uetam last) on single Dainite soles instead of leather soles? What do you think, Frank?
