Just want to check - here's things from my side:
This sounds great - let's roll with this for a late October-mid November Makeup. I love the idea of midnight calf with a grey suede strap. Carmina's on vacation for two weeks, so we have some time to get it going. I'll try to put together a photoshop mockup of it.
DAINITE SOLES FOR JODPHUR BOOT
If you've never worn a Dainite sole before, then you're missing out. I mostly hate rubber soles on proper shoes. But Dainite is a wonderful beast onto itself. It has a classic look, it's tough as hell, and it has a slim profile that looks close to a leather sole when viewed from the side. For these boots, there would be two options:
Classic Dainite Sole: We did this on the Black Bal boot. It's an all-rubber, black sole. Great slim profile, but will "darken" the sole
York Dainite Sole: This is a combination of rubber and leather. It's manufactured by Dainite, but is a different model than the classic Dainite.
It's up to you guys. Using the York sole will give the edge a brown trim that will contrast nicely with the midnight calf upper. It's a wider and thicker sole unit though. The Classic Dainite will make the sole essentially look black (not a bad thing, that's a nice minimal match to the midnight upper) and will give a slimmer profile. Both will be tough and well suited for lousy weather. Midnight calf isn't chromexcel, but it's not something that you have to baby either.
I'm all for this. I took a pic of a very nice wholecut with a medallion on the toe - could be a cool way to tweak the otherwise "stock" style that Carmina offers. If there's interest, I can put it up in both Midnight calf and Caramel calf. Price would be around $550 with trees.
No word on this yet, but you guys will absolutely be the first to know. I have a standing order for enough Ruby shell to cover 30 units. Once I get confirmation of when we can get it, we'll hash out how to put it best to use.
So, our latest Carmina delivery sold like gangbusters, and I'm going to reorder some styles. They are:
* Burg Shell Salinger Double Monk
* Caramel Calf Salinger Double Monk
* Chocolate Calf Fitzgerald Shortwing
We typically order sizes 7UK through 11UK. If you need a smaller or larger size than that - or you want a wide in the Chocolate Calf Fitzgerald, then let me know and we can accomodate your size via special order. It's a 50% deposit, and final sale. Price is the same as our usual retail.
