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:

 

 

 

Hatchgrain 3-eye Chukka, Soller Last: $295 deposit

 

 

Hatchgrain WWII Field Boot, Oscar Last: $295 deposit

 

Snuff Suede 3-eye Chukka, Soller last: $295 deposit

 

Cognac Shell WWII Field Boot, Oscar Last: $450 Deposit

 

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?

Would anyone be interested in this boot below but in burgundy or ruby shell.

Thing Id like to see - storm welt. I think the flat welt makes the boot almost too dressy.

I can envision:
Shape: Jumper
Material: Burgundy Shell
Last: Robert or Forest
Sole: Double Leather
Eyes: Blind with Hooks
Trim: Medium Brown

Why do you guys like the speed hooks? I understand the ease, but it tears the hell out of my pants.

(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.

Thank you sir, it feels great here!

With Cognac, we can certainly specify a dark brown, especially given that we're probably only making 6-8 of them. Should be no problem. I think that this shoe would be radiant in it.
Here's some images for the lizard monk...


This is the shape, we can do it on the Inca or the Rain last. It's pictured in black lizard.


And here's the exact brown lizard skin. It's pretty ideal IMO. A nice dark chocolate brown that won't read as "exotic" from a few paces away. WIth brass buckles, this would be really gorgeous.

Sure thing, we haven't done a navy shell PTB yet. We can certainly build that out. Would be awesome on the Rain last.
OK, I'll definitely put that up this week - I think that shoe will be brilliant in Loden.

Very interested in brown or black lizard dub monk on the Inca last.

In for ruby. Would prefer York or dainite but double leather is ok. Agree on storm welt.

bdeuce22 knows I've been eying a Ruby casual boot.

Pretty flexible for soles. York or dainite would look nice as well
post #3625 of 4102
Burgundy shell wouldn't be a bad color as well. If we want a more fun option, ruby would be.

As I've posted before, I'd be very interested in ruby shell, but not so interested in another brown chukka boot. I already own a cognac calfskin C&J Tetbury , a dark brown shell cordovan RL MacCallum, and I have a hatch grain chukka on order from Epaulet from the last make-up. My chukka boots are my go-to rain boots, though, so I want one in burgundy/ruby, one in brown suede, and maybe (MAYBE) one in black.

This make-up in ruby shell cordovan, please.

Thank you. I'm somewhat familiar with the Forest v Oscar, I have the Greeley on Forest and was looking at the differences v the WW2 boot on the Oscar.

From the pictures you've put up those boots seem pretty much perfect as they are IMHO.

Maybe, with a storm welt, York/dainite sole & burgundy shell (I am not hip enough for ruby).

Hey guys!

Thanks for all of the feedback. Okay, I think that I can see some consensus developing here:

Loden Shell Makeup: Alt Wien
This would be incredibly boss. The loden shell longwings were glorious, and I totally agree on the idea of using it for a chunkier shoe with perfs. The Alt Wien would make up beautifully in that. Now, I've done it two ways, both on the Forest last:

1) Flat welt, double leather sole
2) Storm welt, york sole

Do you guys have a preference? When we did the burgundy shell makeup, I gave it the flat welt and leather sole to make it more dressy. That's the classic Alt Wien shape.

Lizard Makeup: Double Monk
We have a few takers for the double monk. I think that the Inca last is probably the best choice, as it will work for most guys that take a wide fitting, and it's our best selling last in the double monk by far. It works really nicely, and using brass hardware will play off the dark brown lizard really nicely.

Navy Shell Makeups: Jumper Boot (active) and Rain-Last PTB
The Rain PTB is perfect, and it will be brilliant in Navy. With the Rain we can offer wide fittings too.

Ruby Shell Makeup: Jumper Boot
It seems like we've got a few takers for the existing "stmaier" shape in Ruby, with the Oscar last, storm welt and york sole. This will be ass-kicking in Ruby! It will have a great oxblood look, especially with a bit of wear.

This sounds unbelievable. Just slightly worried the Oscar could be too narrow for my foot. Was more thinking along the lines of an Anderson on the Rain or Forest, but will have to see.

Could be remembering the lasts wrong though...

EDIT: just found these images online of the very jumper makeup in saddle.









Lord Almighty, have MERCY!!
