If you want in you are more than welcome, if we are six people we avoid the MTO fee. I you want in write in the thread so others know but please PM me so i don´t miss anyone.
The design is set and not up for discussion.
This is the details:
Model 80184
Cognac Shell
Dainite sole
Green Lining
Speedhooks
Flat Welt
Last: Oscar
Price in SEK with VAT: 5700
Price in SEK without VAT: 4560
Regarding price. I need to get final confirmation from Leaves since Carmina did raise their prices this week.
This is the boot: http://horween.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/perks/
Something happened to my text editor here at SF so i can´t post the pic in the thread....strange.

Looks phenomenal!

Here are some better pics of my resoled Carminas.....I wanted a more casual boot... can I still wear with a suit?

Nice boot, but not a good idea.

Epaulet seems to be getting stuff in under 2 months? They have so many mtos going but it's quick, 5 months would be on the longer side I think

Nope, sent a pm asking to frank though

Oscar is a little wide, as many Carmina lasts are. Certainly wider than the incredibly sleek last looks. Slightly higher instep than Inca, I think (though I'm comparing very different makeups). Fortunately, open laced boots are the easiest thing to fit. Probably ordering your Inca/Forest/Robert size in Oscar would be the way to go.

Great to hear, need that wider fit and higher instep. Would I take barrie size? So 10.5D in barrie, 9.5 UK?

ive only tried simpson in suede and i feel they are a little snug in the toe box. i wear a us 10 but ordered them in a uk9. do you guys suggest size 9 in the oscar or step down to 8.5?

i just dont understand why do that to a pair of carmina boots trickers makes clunky stuff like that, that contrast sole will work with a "country" look but not a day to day city look, i almost thing the boots are sw&d now and should be worn w/jeans
