Which MTO? Mine? We may have close to enough if so then.

Yup.

I think we have four for this MTO. I sent out a PM to the other 3 parties interested. 

 

Erskine Hawkins, I didn't include you as they can only make MTO's virtually the same, which means they can't make some on the Rain and some on the Simpson. I do have some Carmina Rand Double Monks on Rain (Edit: It's actually Inca but it's nearly the same thing I hear, except the toe box is higher) that fit great. They're a 10.5UK. I have some Uetam loafers coming hopefully at the beginning of next week, which fits similar to the Simpson. I sized half a size up from the posts I read. I'll be adjusting the fit of my MTO based on how the Uetam fits. 

 

My loafers shipped to the US were $453.14 after the conversion. About $45 of that was shipping and that's after the VAT discount (20% deducted for non-EU residence). The Adelaides are the same price.

 

So..

Carmina Burgundy Adelaide, more like deep red (GREAT color)

Flat laces

Simpson Last

3400 SEK (2720 ex VAT, approx $420)

Shipping 300SEK ($45ish USA)

 

I won't post about it much longer, don't want to spam the thread. But if you post or PM that you're interested, that'd be great. 

 

Edit: We are able to proceed with the order with the number we have. I am collecting buyer information now. Speak now or forever hold your peace..

 

I will need your paypal email address, delivery address and UK Simpson Size. PM me with all that if you are sure you want in.

Hi,

 

I did my research on the sizing thread. I'm in on a thirteen on the Simpson.

Thanks for checking!!!

Anyone know of a store in Central Paris that carries a good selection of Carminas?

The Carmina store on Avenue de l'Opera has a fair few ;)

I had my first exposure to the brand yesterday when checking out Toronto's new (and as far as I can figure, only) high end shoe store, LeatherFoot in Yorkville.  I've loved the pics I've seen in this thread and elsewhere, but of course there is no substitute for seeing, handling and trying on a broad cross section of the product line.

 

The bad news for my wallet, I discovered a previously unknown but appararently accute need for a pair of midnight blue wholecuts in shell:

 

 

Had fun checking out the G&G and St. Crispins as well.  Will post up some more Carminas from the visit later on.

That single monk on the top left first picture is very nice, just wish the last were a bit wider!

I'm afraid of all that salt and chemicals that was dissolved in the snow during winter, when it melts the water becomes an acid.

My other boots are sno-sealed except these Carminas, also I don't like the behavior of the leather soles on the wet snow and ice.

Thanks dude! Everyone was like wow those are bright. They were really hard to walk with the shaft being so stiff (laugh away) but after a while they were super comfortable.

Namor what you gonna buy out there and where else you visiting?

I caught the Carmina bug.

After purchasing my first pair in Paris, I have since increased my collection by 200%. Picked up a pair of Forest black captoes and this pair of Soller Shell Cordovan boots. I'll try to take better photos later, but these were from their debut yesterday.

Good choice, and the creasing on those is already looking gorgeous!
