Yeah I thought so too. These are the best I can find from Carmina for denim and chinos: Fitzgerald Shortwing Brown Calfskin What do you guys think?

My thought too...what about the chunkier Carmina wingtip that Epaulet just received?

The Fitzgerald Shortwing is a fine choice for denim/chinos, IMO.

I don't know. I am just looking for something a little nicer than suede chukkas I normally wear with jeans/chinos. Maybe chelseas would be better?

Personally I would prefer the shortwings.

Yes. Like the ones in my profile.

Christoph, boots would be great for denim and chinos. Chelseas would be killer, but be sure to consider wingtips, Jodhpurs and balmorals. The bal boots might be a bit dressier, but would still look great in a brown leather or suede (or combo of those).

 

Epaulet apparently just put in orders for a burgundy shell wingtip boot, which I think will be great for casual wear. If that's up your alley and you're not in a rush, you could wait ~2 months for those to go on sale.

Yeah you make a good point diglett. I wanted to get a new style of shoe but it I think sticking with boots would likely be better.

 

The Carver Burgundy Calfskin Chelseas look like they would be the dressiest of them all, but they do look cool. I'm hesitant about chelseas as I've never worn a pair..

 

Hell, I'd even consider just getting the Carmina Ashbery Chukka Boot Brown Calfskin. But again, I'd be worried they might be a little too dressy for denim and chinos.. maybe not though?

That or the Carmina Brown Mole Suede Chelseas look cool but I've never owned or worn a pair before so I'm on the fence about the style whereas I absolutely love chukkas.

I'd probably lean towards the calfskin chukkas. You guys think those work casually?

Calfskin definitely seems more formal, but it's by no means undoable. Actually, I might be picking up those chukkas if/when they restock, also to wear with chinos/denim.

 

I'm not a huge fan of the color on the Armoury chelseas, but that's just me. Be sure to check out Carmina's web shop for a few more boot options, including a half-rubber sole Jodhpur.

Sorry if I am repeating a question...does anybody know the length and width measurements of the Deia last in sizes UK8 and UK8.5?

post #1302 of 9494


did anyone see these bad boys at epaulet...
post #1303 of 9494

Those are fantastic looking but I'm holding out for either the Sinclair wingtip boot in cognac shell or the Steinbeck wingtip boot (like the one in the picture above) in burgundy shell.
