Epaulet Fall '13 MTO Projects Round Two
We've got the next batch of Carmina MTO offerings (as the some of the eagle-eyed among you have already noticed!)
Just like the last round, we've included the option for Carmina shoe trees or Epaulet Epic trees. All styles will be shipped from New York.
Submitted for the approval of the midnight society:
Mike and I were chatting offline about a 3 eyelet Soller Chukka in Cognac Shell with a Dainite Sole. I have also heard really good things about the new Detroit Last.
Anyone interested in this makeup?
i would be up for;
(1) navy shell ptb on rain last -- to have the option of a wide fitting
(2) brown lizard double monk with brass buckles on rain last -- again to have option of wide fitting.
(3) loden shell -- I would prefer the alt wein, but may be interested in austerity brogue -- which, so far, has gotten more interest. I just think that the loden looks better with more, instead of less, broguing. That is why I bet the longwing looks fantastic and why I would prefer alt wein instead of austerity design.
Looking forward to these great make-ups!
Re #3 -- Agree that an alt wein would be awesome in loden. The austerity brogue is interesting but, IMO, not so versatile. I also like the idea of a penny loafer in loden (somebody suggested this) or a tassel loafer.
Potentially very interested if it is the Soller last. Would you consider the 5 eyelet version or is the 3 a must? Not crazy about the Detroit last. I am specifically in the market for a dark cognac shell boot and/or blucher with a dainite sole.
