New GMTO up.  Very pretty, but I don't have the slightest idea how you would wear that.


These are interesting, but I don't understand how shoe manufacturers think this will be cooler in hot weather, given they are lined.

These are eons more wearable than the navy and green Jodhpurs I've seen on here. Don't get me wrong, the boots are beautiful but I've never seen them in a successful fit pic.

I would wear these braided loafers casually with cotton or linen blend pants. Even with shorts, since I swing that way.

I think they just look "summery".  I had a pair of AE woven shoes that were lined, as well, and they really weren't noticeably cooler at all.  At the same time, I think these wouldn't hold up well structurally with no lining.  I'm not even sure if Carmina makes any unlined shoes.

Navy works really well with green and grey pants, and while I think the bright green cordovan boots are kinda hard to wear, they do seem to work pretty well with brown tweeds.  But I don't think the green and rubi cordovan are aimed at people who want something subtle, either.

Yeah, that's normal, not much you can do about it other than apply toe taps.  Applying edge dressing will make it less noticeable.

 

Incidentally, any brands of edge dressing people like for that medium brown pictured?

 

I like the Allen Edmonds edge dressing which come in an assortment of colors. Not only are the colors well varied but the felt tip applicator is narrow enough that it minimizing the chances that the dressing gets the upper when sloppily applied. I once had a ham handed shoe shiner ruin a pair of light colored boots by streaking edge dressing on the upper with a chunky Kiwi brand edge dressing. I think the cost is about $4 for the AE dressing.

(edited to add size)

Those are really nice. Sorry they didn't fit you.

Is the Detroit last too wide for you?

A little, but they were too long.  I'm probably somewhere between a 8.5 and 9UK on the Detroit.  Fit the Inca just fine at 9.

My navy shell Jodhpurs from Carmina for the GMTO organized for reddit.

 

Got a nifty tiger stripe gash on them second wear, in all honesty makes them easier to wear now since I won't baby anymore.

Braid loafers seems to be the thing at the moment, Paul & Friends (Stockholm based, unclear how they manage shipping international) just got these in.

A bit less busy then Carmina's own GMTO model
