When you put it like that, I suppose I do need a belt to match my python shoes.

Vetam Last Noix Suede Tassel Loafer

Hey guys!

Thanks for bearing with me. I just built out the Noix suede loafer on our site. Pricing for this will be $600 including the shoe trees. And as before, any customers ordering from Europe will have the option of direct shipment from Carmina for this.


Tassel Loafer Noix Suede Special Order

I'm going to keep this order up until next Wednesday so that we can submit it in a timely fashion and still get delivery in the Summer.

I believe that I got all of the details that were agreed upon, but please let me know if anything isn't correct and I'll make changes immediately. In terms of the other projects:

GREEN SUEDE LONGWING
I'lll mock this up and put this online by tomorrow evening for the same preorder price and period.

BLACK SHELL DRESS SHOE
It seems like the idea of a captoe bal has been getting the most purchase. Since the queens last has gone over quite well, would you guys be interested in this simple shape for that?



RUBY SHELL RAIN LAST PTB
Carmina has Ruby Shell set aside for us, about 8 units worth. I'm going to pitch a makeup project with the Rain last PTB shape. It's a killer shoe in person, and it will be insanely good in Ruby! Wear these with a navy suit and there's absolutely no stopping it.

How does the Vetam last fit? Do you recommend sizing down 1/2 size from one's normal size to account for the lack of laces/buckle to keep the shoe tight on one's foot?
post #2709 of 4101

What last was the image of the bal captoe you posted before on?

post #2710 of 4101
Am I missing something? Are all of these going up soon on Epaulet's website?

I love this, but I'm still unsure of my Rain last sizing, as the two shoes I have on order are still in production. Would be tough for me not to pull the trigger though.

Also curious..My only pair of Carminas (double monks) is on Inca last in 8 UK and fit is perfect. My Aldens are 8.5D in Barrie/TruBalance and 9D in Tremont, Plaza and Grant lasts.

The MTO styles will be shipping in for those who ordered them, and I presume the open stock styles are the ones that will go right into Epaulet's inventory to sell on their site.

From what I've heard, the fit is similar to the Rain or Alcudia last. On the slimmer side, but that works well for a slip-on. I'd advise staying with our standard sizing recommendation (size down 1 from your usual sizing) for these. That's been our experience with the other goodyear welted loafer that we carry on the Xim last. Handsewn loafers on the Xim last might warrant sizing down another 0.5, but they're softer and more prone to stretching due to the construction.

That's on the Queens last. So we'd essentially make that exact shoe, but in black shell rather than black cafl.

The MTO Project styles are all spoken for - we'll reach out to the customers who purchased them once they arrive. I'll certainly shoot pics to show everyone how they came out too.

The Open Stock styles will go online for general sale. Our shipment is in-country and clearing customs, with luck we'll hopefully get everything by the end of the week.

I'd definitely advise an 8UK in them as well. Fit overall will be similar to the double monk, which is also a laceless style. The Vetam last is a bit more narrow than the Inca, but shouldn't be a problem if you can comfortably wear the Plaza and the Grant in a medium width.

LODEN SUEDE LONGWING MAKEUP


Loden Suede Longwing Special Order Deposit

Second makeup is online! Man, I could look at this photoshop mockup all day long. This is a great concept, and thanks to everyone who put it together!

The details are:
Loden Suede Upper
Antique Brass Eyelets
Single Leather Sole with medium brown edge & flat welt

As this is on the Forest last, all sizes can be ordered in a wide fitting. And Carmina shoe trees are included, as always.
