same here. not a fan of 2/3 eyelets when i can have 5 instead. just looks better imo not to mention a little more support

Yes, same for me. I think those are great while most 2-3 eyelet chukkas do little or nothing for me.

No, just did an MTO of the same design.  Paid a fortune.

 

As you seem to already know, Epaulet did a GMTO. They let a few people back out due to production delays.  One of them happened to be my size.  I went down there to buy it, but they sold it to someone else a day earlier.  Would have just bought it online, but their website says NOT RETURNS and I wasn't aware at that time of their special exemption for SF members.

 

TBH, I get very cold welcomes from the folks at Epaulet, so it helps ease the pain of missing the initial opportunity and having to pay a different retailer significantly more to get it.

I like it a lot.  When I first saw them, I thought it wasn't for me.

 

I actually had the guys at the Armoury have a pair of grey string loafers sent over from the the HK store, but when I got them, they were really more blue than grey.  Practically speaking, you would have to wear them as blue shoes.  I brought em back and exchanged them for the loden, and I'm happy that I did.

 

I think there may be some variation with the loden.  I think mine is on the lighter and greener side.  I think sometimes it can turn out to be darker and more grey.

 

Short answer, I really like the color, especially for this kind of shoe.  Plan to wear them with navy trousers, but they would go great khakis as well.  Got a matching (not an exact match) belt from Steve at Gentleman's footwear.

Thanks roger.  You have a lot of enviable Carmina's as well.

 

Did the jury ever reach a verdict on whether or not neutral wax prevents water welts on Carmina shell?
