I think it's actually Camel Grain in the picture. It's sligthly darker than tanned. I'll see if I can't get our store manager to post a pic.

That would be awesome to see a pic of it. How many months till you guys produce it? Hopefully soon because I love that boot

8-12 weeks for Camrina MTO.

Picture of Camel Grain at the bottom, compared to Tanned "Karren Grain Cuero" (tanned heavy (more textture) grain). Camel Grein is actually a little lighter.

Yes please! Love the grain, colour and composition. I'd prefer a full rubber sole though.

We're doing exactly this boot for fall in "Camel Grain", but with a York sole or possibly a brown Commando sole.

please tell me you're doing it the forest last and that I can order it in a wide.

Queer is an odd word to use. In any case, it's the same as Simpson with an almond toe and they both fit my feet perfectly.

Hoping to have the same experience with the Simpson; sized up by half since my feet are not narrow.

I was initially intrigued by the "Italian boat shoe" archetype when I saw these at Brooks Brothers. But seeing as how I want suede in a lighter color, the Carmina are ideal. And they are cheaper.

I was looking at these a year back and tried on some at Brooks Brothers and actually felt they were a little small and thought that 0.5 bigger than TTS was a better fit, i.e., I am typically a 9D TTS and thought the 9.5D felt the most comfortable. I actually settled on the Allen Edmonds Catskill instead of these for now, as I was looking for something a little more casual and was able to snag the Catskills for $35 off the 'bay.

If anyone is looking for the C&J version of the BB shoe I know that I have seen it pop up on eBay in a tan color for around $340 before shipping. I don't recall what the C&J name for it is.

Would anyone want to do a saddle or cognac blucher?

I would probably be in for a pair of cognac, assuming it is on Detroit last.

That's fine with me. That's 2 of us who else wants to join? Only 4 more needed to get this project rolling

I actually like the lighter. It will age very nicely

Count me as a tentative yes depending on the last

What last would you want? I'm open in terms. I don't want Simpson or the really wide bulbous last ( can't remember the name)

A tentative yes from me, too, depending on the last and the sole. And I agree on preferring the lighter leather.

frown.gif I afraid you're referring to the forest last with the later, which is the only last that comes in my necessary wide width.
