Just for reference, it's not a scotch grain, although it does have a cool texture. It looks like this:



And here's an 1800px enlargement of that shot

I've seen lama skin done by santoni and it was beautiful. If its possible mike that would be an epic boot. Count me in if they can do it

If I recall this is a textured tumbled calf called Lama, as opposed to the skin of a llama. Maybe I misread the above post though...

Didn´t see this in teh MTO list. I would be very interesed (since Carmina can ship direct). Is the make up set or is this up for debate? smile.gif Would like to know how brass eyelets and mid brown sole looks like. What will the price be?

Thanks

Hey Mike...looks like you're enjoying yourself over there...these new makeups all look so enticing. I like the austerity boot in Burgundy. I think its the only Carmina shell color I'll be lacking pretty soon. Keep kicking ass man!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Sorry, gents but anyone here knows if there's been any bal boot made before this austerity bal?

There was a black pebble grain bal boot, a cognac shell one, and a mixed calf and suede one. All on the Forest last.

These are mine in the cognac shell.

Thanks, Frank! Do we know what last the Austerity bal will be on? The shape of it looks so elegant.

I think it is also on the Forest last, wj4. Can't find where I think I read that, though.

Does Carmina have an in house recraft service? I don't mind taking them elsewhere but Carmina's rubber dainite is a perfect combination of style and function. Never seen a thinner rubber sole offered anywhere else

Could you have sized down on the Forest last by 1.5 sizes??? I'm wearing my Robert lasted boot and it fits a little loose (sized down 1)

Almost certainly no. I have gone with 10.5UK in a wide fitting on the Forest vs. a Brannock sizing on the wider size of 11D (it's why I like these MTOs). I buy Barrie 10.5E and 11D. I have the Forest in 11UK and 10.5UK regular fittings too. The 10.5 just barely works for me. Not that comfortable. I had to go with 11UK on the ruby captoe on the Queens.
