Can anyone suggest a shop in London that has a good selection of Carminas?
Try Hackett on Jermyn Street (and possibly Sloane Square too). A lot of their shoes are made by Carmina. They had a good selection before Christmas. Matches are also stocking them this season according to their website. No idea if they're instore yet but they weren't online the last time I looked. The Spencer Hart flagship in Mayfair used to stock a couple of models too. One was a black suede austerity brogue, can't remember what the other was.
Matches have just 2 models. Not bad prices (with VAT removed in my case).
Last week I bought a pair of Carmina shell single monks from Brogue, Geneva Switzerland. They had 2 Carmina models in Cordovan on sale (for 295 CHF - 300 USD), the owner confirmed that Cordovan does not sell much in Europe. Edited by clausc - 2/26/13 at 6:17am
