Yeah, perfect timing as well, I can take some paternity leave just in time for the Football World Cup next summer.
Back on topic, I'm going to be at the Carmina factory in Inca on Monday (March 4). Any requests for photos or intel?
Yeah - ask them when the 2nd round of the cognac boot will be shipped . I was hoping to pick mine up on a recent trip to Scandinavia, but alas it was not to be ....
Any information you can pick up also on options for different types of hatch-grains (or pebble grains) will be great. The talk earlier in this thread about a textured chukka boot has piqued my interest.
If you could get some photos of their range of leathers (suede in particular) that might be good. From what I understand from Epaulet, Carmina has an extensive range, and only parts of that range have yet made it into online photos, and thus common knowledge. Intel wise I'd love some info on the whole grain leather quagmire if they're willing to share. Will it be resolved in the near future? Are they looking for a new supplier?
Ok, I'd agree with that. The sharper lines through the toe make the 888 more suitable for particularly dressy shoes (such as black plain-toes or wholecuts) IMO, not to imply that the 82 wouldn't work as well. I don't have enough personal experience with EG shoes to say one way or the other. I was just curious what your preferences were because I'm planning on order Carmina wholecuts on the Rain last shortly.
