Epaulet x Carmina MTO - Page 93

post #1381 of 4103

I vote to do the Austerity Brogue Boot as a Balmoral and wait for an Early Spring delivery.  Better to wait and truly get something special.

As always, please feel free to hit me off with any size questions. The Inca last is a very easy fit - it's the best-seller of our entire collection.
2. Chocolate Suede / Chocolate Calf Rain Last Jophur is also up:

Special Order Chocolate Suede / Calf Jodphur Boot DEPOSIT
3. Ruby Shell Perf Captoe: We're all good to go with this. I'm just waiting on an exact count of how many shoes we can offer - there's been a lot of interest in it, and I don't want to oversell the preorder if I can avoid it. I'm looking to put this up on Tuesday.
Please note, these three lasts (Inca, Rain, Alcudia) are unfortunately not available in wide fittings, but we may be able to make them in a larger or smaller size than what's listed in the dropdown. I'll be happy to ask if anyone's interested.
In terms of the Balmoral Austerity Brogue boot....

That shape is insane! I absolutely love it!
I spoke with Carmina, and they don't have anything like that in their lineup at the moment. But it is possible for us to commission it, as we did the Sinclair/Steinbeck. Realistically, there's not time enough to do that this year. So we'd have two options for going forward:
FIRST - I'll be happy to work out that design with Carmina and look into an early Spring MTO. With sampling, we could probably look for a delivery in Feb-March of next year. Still plenty of season for boot wearing. Perhaps we do it in a calfskin or suede for maximum Spring wearability.
SECOND - If you guys are open to doing a blucher Austerity rather than a balmoral, we could probably swing that this year. We'd essentially use the Sinclair shape and just remove all of the perforations from it.
Whatcha think?

 Mike,

I saw the pictures of the Ruby loafer you posted before, but couldn't get a good feel on whether the color would be formal enough to wear with a navy or grey suit?  Or would you say this is something that is more casually geared.  Just trying to get a better sense of the color(because lighting can change perception so much)

Considering the whole cut and wondering about sizing. 10UK Inca was too small for me all around. 10.5UK Forest is a little too narrow. 11UK Forest is comfortable in the width, but longer than necessary. Therefore, ordered a balmoral boot in Forest 10.5UK wide, but won't be able to see how that fits before making a decision on the Inca whole cut.

Taking into consideration that Inca comes in only the standard width, my feel is that I should go for 11UK to get the width even if the length isn't ideal. I bet 10.5UK is going to be tight.

Does this sound right?

Did we abandon another python MTO?

Anyone have a pic of the Caramel whole cut? Trying to get an idea of whether Caramel is a darker or lighter shade of brown?

Thanks...no idea why I was asking that question but it was terribly important at the time!! Trying to decide if I want caramel or tan.

After thinking about it for a couple of days, doing the austerity brogue boot would be better as a bal and, therefore, worth waiting for, even if it means not having it for this winter. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Yeah I think most of us agree, we'll wait for spring on those to get exactly what we want.

I agree

Absolutely. I could order a dozen different blucher boots and have them here by the weekend. And while I love my blucher boots, the idea of an MTO (to me...) is to get something special, somewhat unavailable, etc.

If your talking about a boot similar to the pic...I would rather wait till Spring too!



What so different about the Caramel wholecut that we have to do a MTO...the medallion?

LOL Touché good sir!

Although that would end up being twice as expensive and take all the fun out of doing an MTO project!
