Epaulet x Carmina MTO - Page 237

post #3541 of 4102

any word on the Hatch Grain Jumpers?  Any of the one-offs make it in this delivery?  I know the factory closes for a bit in August so I assume end of September/beginning of October for the next shipment?

Loden Shell Cordovan Longwing
Loden Shell Cordovan Greeley
Navy Shell Cordovan Greeley
Loden Shell Cordovan Jumper Boot
Ruby Shell Cordovan Plain Toe Blucher
Noix Suede Loafer

I'll have images of everything later tonight - they look fantastic! Like the last time, we'll build out an online item where you can submit the balance payments. And we'll work to get everything packed and labeled for shipping over the weekend.

One note for the Noix Suede Loafer guys. Carmina goofed on the tassel and made it up ALL in Noix suede. It was ordered with a brown smooth leather tassel. I've negotiated a discount on it, so if you want to take the shoes, then they will be 15% off, for a final retail of $510 (this will be reflected in the balance payment). But you also have the option to cancel your preorder for them, as they did not arrive as promised.

Everything else is spot on. And good lord, the Loden Shell Cordovan is SO BOSS!

I saw the pics of the loafers on Instagram and actually like em even better. I also snagged those Thompson suede blucher. Very happy!

Yes, we've got a couple of one-off's, and I believe two pairs of them for you. My guys will be in touch shortly once we comb through everything. smile.gif Hatch Grain should come in our late September delivery.

Thank you sir! I love how they came out too, and honestly, they're probably more wearable in all suede. But it's not what we originally promised, so I think that the discount is in order on them.

I've got photos of everything to post up later tonight!

Yet another shipment without the MTO Navy Jodhpur boots from last November (I believe)!

Mike what is the deal?

There is no correspondence from anyone by Epaulet regarding any expected delivery date, or any sort of update.

I've called the store on 2 separate occasions to inquire about these boots, and was told both times I would get an email before the end of the day as to some sort of update on these.

I don't think it is uncalled for to ask for an update on a pair of boots that was promised 6 months ago, and then once the screw up happened we were told latest June.

I've received numerous PM's from other customers from this order who are just as peeved about this as well.

HELP!

Hey there,

My apologies for that - I believe that I've checked in on this before. Overall our deliveries on Carmina styles have been very good, but we've run into problems with three styles: two of which are navy calfskin. That's mainly the issue, it's been problematic sourcing this leather in enough quantity to produce the run of boots. I was also told June by Carmina, but that was a while back. I totally understand your frustration, and believe me, I'd love nothing more than to have these boots arrive and be put into your hands. Our next delivery is going to be around the 3rd week of September, so I'll do whatever I can to ensure that these are in there. Ultimately, it comes down to the availability of the skins.

As I mentioned before, when the boots do arrive, they will be sold at 30% off the original retail price. And anyone who has them on preorder is absolutely able to cancel that preorder and receive a full refund for your deposit. A few guys dropped out when the delay came out initially, and I believe there are four other customers outside of you who have the boots on order.

Again, my sincere apologies, I know that this is a pain in the ass. In the future, I know that this particular leather is problematic, so we're going to avoid offering it for work. The same goes for grey suede.

And if anyone has any questions regarding Carmina MTO's, then emailing us is the best way to reach me. Our stores are always available via the phone, but I'm mostly the only one who has a handle on exact shoe orders and delivery dates, at least in regards to this thread. I check emails all day long.

So does this mean that there are a few pairs of them that will be available? :D

Absolutely, I ordered some extra on top of the canceled ones too. We should have a full size run of them when they arrive.

Oh, we've also got two open stock styles for this shipment...


Alt Wien Semi-Brogue Captoe Burgundy Shell Cordovan (Forest Last): $825


Greeley Balmoral Boot Navy Shell Cordovan (Forest Last): $935

Any chance they are smaller sizes that were cancelled?
