No not mine. 

 

My next procurement may be the C&J balmoral boot in whiskey cordovan mentioned in the Harlech thread.

 

Can you men give me a comparison between C&J handgrade cordovans and Carmina's?

 

Because I'm on the fence between the Carmina bal boots in Cognac Cordovan and the CJ bal boots in whiskey..........

Thanks rydenfan, I'm very happy with the color. Nice to find something close to old ravello by another maker.

C&J handgrade > Carmina. Both do shell very well though so often times it comes down to availability and price.

Those are incredible.

A few months ago, the Epaulet site listed one of these available, and it happened to be in my size. I ordered it, only to find out a day later that it was not actually in stock.

yeah, that's been my experience ordering from epaulet or leffot this summer. Been a run of bad luck I guess (although my wallet has been thankful!)
