I got back from Italy today, and I'm going to build out all of the preorders tomorrow. We'll get the "Greeley Boot" rolling!

5. Black Calfskin (with black dainite sole)

Any chance of calling the black with black dainite the "Orwell Boot?"

Will the black calf austerity brogue boot have a grey suede neck similar to these?

Absolutely, I can fire that up this week. That shoe was ace!
Oh, sorry, I left out the black boot - we'll definitely offer that one too!

Was the initial suede austerity shoe on a single leather sole? Can we do a double sole on that this round if people are interested? I do a lot of walking in the city and the single sole just doesn't feel as good as a double.

I may be interested in the austerity shoe on a double leather sole. Any interest in doing that shoe in cognac shell as well as suede?

You will be fine with the 12UK. I too wear that size and have 4 Carmina in 3 different lasts. Simpson/ runs on the narrower width and toe box through the other end of last spectrum with Robert/ Queens. Your width is slightly narrower than mine as a C, but as the Euro makers don't generally size widths as specifically as US, you have to live with the width. Remember, Sizing from a "C" to a mid width "D" in Alden and AE is only 3/16" . With Carmina, C&J, EG etc... the last truly does dictate the footbed width

Dang..the black part looks REALLY GOOD.


Also, is the burnished calf a similar hue to Saddle shell?

Mike showed an example of the burnished calf here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/277505/epaulet-x-carmina-mto/2100_100#post_6041726

I saw that and it looks pretty close to Saddle, at least to the pair I have. That's why I asked. I'm torn between the burnished calf and black.

Ah, that makes sense. I just thought you might have missed it. I'll probably be torn between full Snuff, and black, with my decision probably being based on the soles.

+1 for Cognac PTB.

Anyone interested in a plain brown calf with dainite sole for the austerity boot?
