Okay, here's things from my side:
1. Another Carmina shipment is leaving Spain this week. I'll get confirmation on styles in a few days, but there should be plenty more MTO units in there.
2. I've asked for availability on Navy Shell to do some reorders of the Austerity Brogue, that Medallion toe Brogue, and/or Double Monk. We'd need 6 interested customers for each to put it into work.
In terms of new ideas, here's some discussion points and pics:Navy Python Makeup
Okay, I think that I've got the perfect skin for this. The color is bonkers good in person:
Now, in terms of a style, I get Mario's point - it would be ace to do this in a cool shape. The Wholecut won't work because the skins aren't big enough. But what do you guys think of a Rain-last single monk:Off White Makeup
Cream suede (basically Milkshake) is definitely available. But there's two other things that we might consider for this:
Cream Calfskin. Little easier to maintain and keep clean than suede. We could actually do this exact style with brass eyes, which would really punch it out!
Blond Suede. Double monk in this with brass hardware would be insanely bossTwo Tone Makeup
Since this will be an early Spring style, how about doing a playful spectator-ish style? These are womens items, but the colors would look great in a Mens shortwing or longwing:
And I want to show you this for color. This is a GORGEOUS dark teal suede. Maybe we can put that into work somewhere. It looks very cool with the dark brown leather. Maybe a two-tone shortwing? A hardcore balmoral boot?
