I'd prefer the Simpson last and I think that's what the boot in the pic is as well. I'd be up for a spring delivery but happy to put it off if that's the preference.

^ That grape calf is wild! Probably too crazy for me, but I'll enjoy seeing the photos if it gets used. A purple suede would be much easier to wear, while still being awesome and flashy, in my opinion.

Man...sucks that there will be no Spring MTO. I really wanted a tan pebble grain split toe loafer!

Im having a pair of "eggplant" Bontonis made, otherwise I would be all over it!

I'm not that big of a fan of suede so I would rather we do the purple bal boot with brown calf. But I'll go with the majority. Purple is too good to turn down.

Mike, is something like this possible? If I had to choose one, it would be the navy option, but if there's enough interest maybe both could be made up. There seems to be a real a dearth of summer options with all the boot talk (not that I don't like boots), so I was thinking this might be cool option to run alongside the many boot makeups given the estimated time of delivery.

I was wondering if Carmina makes a 2-eyelet chukka. Something like this would be awesome, in either lama calf leather or suede, but without the medallion.

I've just been shoving aside the thought of summer; I'm woefully unprepared for it, although my boot game will be on point by this Autumn.

I wanted a loafer to wear with jeans, but im finding my boots are a much better fit. I mean i could be swayed

  i agree on the boot / jeans.  always room for the right loafer tho. casual stylz for spring - summer - fall.

  what's your take on a meermin possibility ?  i haven't had the pleasure yet.

I havent really messed with Meermin. Ive heard some good and some horrible things about finishings/details. I did try on a loafer once by Bontoni (my favorite) that I really really liked
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I am having the left 3 made but I loved the color of the loafer so I had it pictured.

Oh yes, we can absolutely do more makeups for Spring/Summer. Lead time with Carmina is usually 3-4 months, so we can certainly plan out styles to be delivered then. I only mentioned Fall for the Chukka boot because it's shell cordovan and a fairly tall style.

I'd love to do some suede makeups! I've already got Handsewn loafers (the Hawthorne penny) in work in snuff, navy, and grey - and we're doing some other things like the Rand single monk in snuff and the Salinger Double monk in snuff. But it would be rad to do some exciting and colorful stuff as well.

I received some interest in another run of the snuff suede austerity brogues - and we can offer those in a second colorway too if you guys are interested. Let me pull out some photos tomorrow - Carmina has a HUGE array of suede colors. There's really great stuff like hunter green and teal, and of course purple. We can do some off-kilter tassel loafers or two-tone spectators. This late Spring delivery is the perfect time to get some really colorful and interesting styles.

Is this a possibility in the hunter green suede? I think this could be a great shoe that functions almost as a loafer would

its model 80156 on rain last
