I found the Robert fits a little slimmer than the Forest, but it's also hard to compare because the Robert is a balmoral and the Forest is a blucher.

Queens looks ahellava lot like the Robert last. Would be interested to know how they compare as well

Exactly where my mind went too.

Hey guys!

Apologies for my LONG absence on the thread. Right after my trip to LA, I've had back to back meetings with web designers on the pending overhaul of our website (scheduled for late Oct, early Nov). I've finally got everyone tasked with what needs to happen, so I can get back to (shoe) business.

Here's what's happening from my side:

1. I'm getting 100 pairs of Carminas sometime this week - most likely Wednesday. I'm not sure exactly what's inside yet, but I'm hoping that some of our MTO styles are. You guys will be the very first to know. I believe that our long-awaited shell cordovan belts are going to be in there too. If some styles are missing, then I know that we have another box going out in about 15-20 days, and they should be in there.

2. I know that the Pythons are coming in with that later October shipment. They were finished in time, but we're navigating the brouha of importing them into the States. Believe it or not, they need a "fish and wildlife" waiver on the customs documents, so we're grinding that out now.

3. I'll get the Ruby shell preorder up tomorrow, sorry for the crazy wait on that! We'll have fit details for the Queens last there.

4. The Wholecut and Suede Jodphur actually fell a little bit short for the makeup minimum. We need 2 more orders on the wholecut and about 4 more on the Jodphur before they can go into production. I reactivated them on the site:

I'll put this into our Epaulet thread tomorrow. If we can get these additional orders within the next 2 weeks, then we can go forward with this. If not, then I'll have to cancel the makeup and I'll immediately refund anyone who put in the deposit. I imagine that we'll make the wholecut, but the Jodphur is iffy at the moment. Let's see if we can get some additional guys signed on.

Thanks!

Interested in the Jodphur. I am a 7.5uk in the Forest last with slightly wider feet. Any sizing tips?

^ the forest last is slightly wide so they may fit without sizing up width

Special Order Ruby Shell Cordovan Captoe DEPOSIT: $425

Hey guys!

Thanks again for bearing with me, we're finally all set to go on the Ruby shell punched captoe! There's a total of 10 slots available.

Now, I put a really long-winded explaination of the makeup and how the photos relate to it. If you're confused, I totally understand. Just post your question up here and I'll give a quick answer, I'll be all over this thread until the shoes are sold through.

I spoke with Carmina and we should be good with a December delivery, but just to be safe, I'm going to say to December-January on this. Once we get too close to holiday times, things have a way of getting backed up (factory people take off early, customs is slow and slammed with gift parcels, etc), so there is a possibility that this could leave Spain in time, but still only make it here after the new year. So please order these with that understanding.

I didn't put a deadline on ordering because there seems to be a ton of interest in the shoes, and I think that it will sell out all of the leather that's available. If that doesn't happen, then we'll submit the order next Tues-Wed to ensure that it makes it to Carmina in time. Either way I'll be in touch.

Thanks!

Will the toe have punching on it as with the Ellison or will it be plain with the brogued edge as with the Reiter shoe?

It will have the same punching patterns and overall shape at the Ellison, just without the medallion on the toe.

All things being equal, I would have preferred to color-correct the Ellison to look like Ruby shell, but that chocolate calf is so dark that the resulting reddish tone was WAY too dark and deep. That's why I used the Reiter shoe for the mockup (it was originally a caramel color).

The Ellison has been one of our best-selling styles to date, and the smaller scale punching and details definitely makes it more dressy. It's going to be phenomenal in Ruby.

Looks nice.

Shame I need money for outerwear atm.

Perfect. I think I will prefer it w/o medallion.
