I have been subscribed to this thread for a while now, but don't own any Carminas. I decided to jump in with both feet and ordered two pairs via ShoeMart as they are running a pretty damn good sale. Basically got two pairs for the price of one (link below) with free shipping in the U.S. I grabbed the Coyle Brown Boots (Forest Last) and the Anders Brown Loafers (Rain Last).
Thanks, got the CXL Coyles as well. Debating the Alston, still need a basic black shoe
edit: didn't even realize the ridgeway on the coyles, even better!
