Those are nice. How did you fit them vs. other Carmina or Alden lasts?

Here is my original post on it. The blue ones aren't in that one but you can see where there's a lot of room in the heel for my snuff suede ones. These are sized down half a size and are the best fitting shoes I've ever owned. Uetam isn't for everyone but it feels like it was made for me.

 

eta: Carmins are the only pair of shoes I've owned over $200. No Aldens for me. At least not yet. Sorry man.

Navy and saddle shells.



post #4309 of 8824

I am organising a new Carmina Group MTO through Skoaktiebolaget.

 

With massive originality, I am proposing the exact same boot as the previous MTO back in October:

 

 

This is the Carmina Model 80184 in Cognac (colour) shell cordovan made on the Oscar last, with Dainite rubber sole.

 

 

Last year's MTO specified a green lining, but it was eventually supplied in purple as Carmina do not do green linings. I am open to suggestions regarding the lining colour - it might be nice to do this run in a different colour from purple, the better to differentiate this order from the previous one. Other parameters are not open to negotiation.

 

Please note that Carmina's Cognac cordovan can vary a little in colour. Here is their model 080092-025 in Cognac, from the Carmina website:

 

Just slightly darker with more reddish tones.

 

And here is the same boot in Cognac from a previous run (posted earlier on this same thread):

 

 

Darker still, with a more chocolately hue. Of course, this may be a trick of the light. Anyway, you get the general idea. We must be flexible in our expectations regarding the delivered colour. Personally, I would be perfectly happy with any of the above three variations of Cognac.

 

As per the previous order, we need a total of six pairs in order to secure the group MTO price through Skoaktie. That price is 4480 SEK (ex VAT) or 5600 SEK (VAT incl), which is 30% cheaper than the price quoted by Carmina for a direct MTO. This model is not available from their online store; MTO is the only way to obtain this boot.

 

The original discussion regarding the first group MTO can be found here and the "Carmina sizing thread" can be found here. Feedback was generally very positive from all participants in the first MTO, and Skoaktie generally get a very good rap.

 

On your marks, gentlemen.

Does carmina or skoak accept mto returns?
post #4311 of 8824
To my knowledge, nobody does. With good reason.

If you have wider feet, you might want to consider these: http://www.carmina.telemaco.es/articulo.asp?idarticulo=3465223

Where does Oscar fit into the last width hierarchy?

I looked in the carmina sizing thread. Is it similar to inca or rain or more to the narrower end?

Very tempted by the boots but I need the inca or rain width.
post #4316 of 8824

I would say it's not as wide as the Inca and similar to the Rain but with a slightly more snug heel - more information at http://www.styleforum.net/t/241469/carmina-shoe-p0rn/1950_30#post_5836402

That's quite helpful. I have a pair in rain coming in, sized down a half due to being a solid American E width. If it works out, I'm seriously considering those boots.

In other words...convince me to go with the navy shell!

Well, in an odd twist of fate...the navy shell double monk didn't fit so I ended up with the burgundy shell double monk from Epaulet.  However, seeing the navy shell in person sold me.  Any recommendations on a merchant for the navy shell double monks or will I be forced to go MTO?
