Epaulet x Carmina MTO - Page 191

post #2851 of 4102

Is the antelope leather...actually antelope leather? I feel like I would have to buy a boot made of that just for the sake of having it. Mike, are there any other colors available?

Mike - do you have a pic of Carmina's burgundy calf and/or burgundy burnished calf?

Hatch Grain - the story is that it is a Horween product that AA Crack distributes at least in the UK. G&G and AS both use it. http://www.aacrack.co.uk/default.asp?contentID=633 I love the darker brown. 2 eyelet 907 rain last? I am a Simpson last guy, but I couldn't resist this if it were offered. Still open to a jodhpur. Afinepairofshoes uses the dark brown on a AS chukka, which if I wanted a chukka I could have bought already

Wow, this is actually incredibly useful - thanks so much! If Horween makes that leather, then we can certainly get it at some point. I brought Chromexcel to Carmina, so I'll get the ball rolling on this too. Let's see if we can hook it up for Fall.

Sure thing. This was a Burgundy Calf chelsea boot that we ran last year:



And I don't have an image of burnished burgundy, but this is burnished caramel:



It's pretty subtle overall. I think that it would add a nice character to the Austerity Brogue, but we can certainly do it without as well.

You bet it is. It's freaking awesome! As the tale goes....

The kudu is a very large graceful antelope that grazes in the bushveld areas of Southern Africa. Kudu skins typically have more natural scratches and scars than cow leather due to the kudu's long lifespan in the bush.

It's got an insane character and it's tough as hell. I believe that it just comes in this neutral color, but I'll ask if there's other colors available. The cool thing about this lighter tone is that it's going to darken like crazy.

I'd be interested in a burnished burgundy austerity brogue. I'll check back in to see what you all decide.
post #2858 of 4102
which last were you guys thinking for the burnished burgundy austerity brogue? I don't know my size for Carmina lasts so have no point of reference. for what it's worth, I wear a 9D on the Alden Hampton last and a UK8F on the Alfred Sargent 724 last.

also, how long does MTO take to complete?

I like the rain
post #2860 of 4102

Rain works for me, too.

These in Burgundy on Rain?

 

Just wanted to confirm. If so, I may be in.

Burgundy Calf Austerity Brogue is going to be about $580 with the shoe trees.

are the shoe trees optional and would that bring the cost down?
post #2863 of 4102

+1. I don't want the shoe trees. But I'd be in on this group buy. I've wanted that shoe for a while but the color stopped me. If it was Burgundy, I can't help myself.

 

Also, is it possible to get this done with a full insert instead of the half (I don't believe that's the right word for it)? I have the Inca Monk Strap from Carmina and my foot kills me at the end of the day because of it.

Pretty sure the shoe trees are part of the package but really the question is why wouldn't you want lasted shoe trees at a significant discount for your new MTO shoes? Epaulet normally sells their Carmina calf shoes for $545 so you're getting an MTO + Lasted shoe trees for the same cost as stock model + non-lasted woodlore trees. No brainer IMO.
post #2865 of 4102

Good point I guess. I've just got a stockpile of EPIC shoe trees and don't like to not pull from that. But if they're lasted, sure. 

 

PM me any updates on this when it begins.
