That sounds amazing

Thanks.  I think if you imagine the Alden for Epaulet Taunton Captoe boot in loden or burgundy shell, that's pretty close to what I envisioned.  The captoe or the wingtip (Steinbeck) design -- I could go either way on that.  

 

I picked up my first pair of Carminas from Epaulet a month or so back (but won't be wearing them until fall starts) and was really blown away.  Been lurking here since and kicking myself for all of the amazing MTOs I've missed, not my budget lets me do loads and loads of those.  It does seem that the focus is on a lot of sleek and elegant designs --- this is, after all, what Carmina does so well --- and I appreciate that.  But I would be in on a tougher casual boot and while I haven't been able to read every past thread, I saw mention of the commando sole but no indication that it had been done before.

We are trying to do a brown calf / loden boot at GF but I think people would be open to burgundy shell potentially. I just want loden suede on the boot

No

I don't know about anybody else who's in on the WWII boot MTO but I'm getting excited and impatient for them to arrive.  My first Carminas and curious to see if it's a brand I can look to instead of enduring some of the frustration with Alden.

 

Mike, are we still on track for a late September delivery?

Hey guys!

Everything is counted and ready to be packed over the weekend. These shoes and boots came out great!

Here is the link where you can pay your balance payment: Carmina MTO August Balance

And all the photos of these sweet, sweet styles. Feast your eyes:


Longwing in Loden Shell Cordovan

So, the brass hardware on my LWB's are mysteriously absent.

Did anyone else who received the Loden longwings not have the brass eyelets on their particular pair? Seems like an odd thing to screw up when all the other pieces in the run seemed to include them.

Any more traction on a ruby/burgundy jumper boot.

Burgundy jumper +1 only if it comes with closed welt and york sole. An added bonus would be brass eyelets and hooks. I have a pair of ruby and its really bold in direct sunlight.

I want this but in dark cognac. Is there any reason some prefer the York to full Dainite? To my eye, the profile and thickness are the same? Wouldn't full Dainite be more practical or does that leather provide any traction (if it touches ground at all)? Sorry if its a dumb q.

dark cognac you say? nod[1].gif I might be in as well.

I don't think I've seen dark cognac before.

I don't know how much I like a closed welt on this type of boot, but if that's what the majority wants......

^ Yeah, sorry, just to back up -- what is dark cognac? Is it just cognac shell with antiquing, or a totally separate shade? I haven't heard of it either. Sounds intriguing though.

 

The flat welt is just really versatile. Carmina's lasts, in the grand scheme of shoes, are fairly sleek, and especially with shell I think the flat welt is the way to go.

 

+1 for York sole.

I'm pretty much indifferent to the welt but York/Dainite is a must. I don't think dark cognac is a new color - see quote from Mike at post 3631 above. I think it's the color in the cognac shortwing on the Epaulet site. If I'm wrong, I can certainly live with a darker brown. Anyway, I am definitely in for this.

Edit: I think the "dark" cognac is just to differentiate from some lighter shades that Carmina has also called cognac. I think you can see different shades both labeled cognac on their e shop.
