Anyone?

And check out this model - it's a recent design for Carmina. A Wholecut Brogue. How do you guys like it?

Terracotta Boot ordered! Time to get going on this next one.

I counted about 4 folks excited about this - can we finalize what we want so Mike can get it going bigstar[1].gif

I can see this being worn at the office all the way to black tie.
Chiseled toe - Rain Last?
Either Navy shell or midnight calf?
Wholecut?
I'm pretty open to ideas for the toe - Plain? Austerity? Small Medallion? Brogue?
Channeled soles?

Can we get a few champions to get this going? cheers.gif

This beautiful hide is no longer produced by Carmina's tannery, and 12 units can be made with the supply that remains.

Well, I woke up and saw that some money had come through from paypal while I slept...

 

 

 

Another slot taken for the Terracotta. 

 

Styleophile, has Carmina ever made channeled soles? I've never seen any from them.

so the forest last, how wide is that?

I am a 8.5 GG and from what I can see the last seems wider than normal, but is it enough?

post #2482 of 4101

Doesn't seem wide at all to me; my regular-fitting Forest last fit the same (in the same size) as my Queens and Inca lasts.

I agree. It is not a particularly wide last. I'd equate it to how Alden's Aberdeen last fits me. I size UK11 regular width for Forest (compared to 11.5D for Aberdeen), and on an MTO like this, I'd order UK10.5 wide because I can.

damn, well guess I am not going to be able to then, nice looking boot :/

 

damn my wide feet

I ordered the Chocolate calf/suede balmoral.

forest last does not like my feet.

just listed it on ebay if you missed this boot order. thanks

for me, the forest last fits a little wider than the other three carmina lasts that i have (all are the same size). from wide to narrow, my feeling is forest > queens > rain > robert. the forest is a blucher (epaulet cognac shortwing) and the rest are balmorals. all are shell except the rain is python.

i've decided to size down half for the terracota lama MTO and hopefully it works out. if not...it's UK size 6.5 and expect to see it on b&s.

The Forest last is noticeably wider than the Rain last, but not so much so that it is unwearable. I tried on boots in the Forest last in a half-size smaller than my usual size and could tell that my feet would kill me in half an hour if I wore them that long.

I typically wear a US size 9.5D. Here is how the lasts feel to me:

Rain UK8.5 = Edward Green UK9D
Forest UK8.5 = Edward Green UK9E
post #2488 of 4101

Hello,

 

I currently wear a UK size 9.5H from Church's, what would be the equivalent size here? Also, would it be possible to account for a higher instep when making the boot?

 

Lastly, how much would they cost, and will you be charging tax if I'm located in New York State?

 

Thank you,

William

How wide are your feet. Sorry I am not familiar with GG sizing, so that's no help. I have a wider foot (US on the border between US D and E width), and I find that being able to order the Forest in a wide fitting works well for me. You may want to try PMing Mike at Epaulet or giving one of the shops a call. They will be best able to advise.

I take a EE in an Alden barrie and I'm wearing a Forest wide right now.
