DELIVERY ON THE WAY!

The below styles are on the way to our New York shop. Once they clear customs, we'll be contacting you for the remainder of the balance to be paid.

Chukka Boot in Brown Hatchgrain
Chukka Boot in Snuff Suede
Alt Wien Loden Shell Cordovan
Jumper Boot Navy Shell Cordovan
Chocolate Lizard Double Monk



"IN-THE-WORKS"

The below styles are finishing up at the factory now, and we're estimating delivery right around the New Year, most likely sooner.
WWI cognac shell boot
WWII Hand burnished scotchgrain boot
Midnight/Calf Suede Jodphur boots
Jumper boot natural kudu
Jumper boot hatch grain

Initially I paid a deposit of $335 because I ordered a pair of Carmina Shoe Trees to go with the Carmina Chukka Boot in Snuff Suede. I was wondering if you could tell me if these came with the shoes? I already paid the $310.00 your site allowed, however I believe I owe an additional $25 if the Carmina shoe trees arrived as well. If they didn't I vaguely remember an option to get your shoe trees?

 

Thanks,

 

Dan

I just picked up my snuff suede chukkas and the Carmina shoe trees came with them. The initial deposit I believe covered the upcharge.

 

The snuff suede chukkas, by the way, are incredible. Soller last is a great shape for them. Props to James on that idea.

Crappy indoor iPhone photos you say? Sure!

 

 

 

This is before I apply the initial coat of Saphir Invulner, which darkens the suede slightly.

 

But I really can't be happier with these shoes. Carmina suede is such an incredible leather, and I'm a fan of the makeup -- maybe obviously, considering I was the person who initially suggested it!

Those are outstanding. I'm not a huge chukka fan - the usual makes are just too clunky for my taste. Those are very elegant and beautiful boots.

Carmina Group Buy Pics

Hey guys!

I've come bearing pics of the latest group buys! Here are the styles that were delivered (not including the Suede Chukka which Applky posted up):

Hatch Grain Chukka

Navy Shell Cordovan Jumper Boot


If you didn't receive the email with the link, then here's where you can pay your open balance:
http://epauletnewyork.com/products/carmina-mto-december-balance

The guys already processed all of these units and added shoe trees, so nearly all of them will be ready to ship on Tuesday if they haven't shipped already.

We've working with Carmina to get another delivery within the next four weeks which should complete all of the preorder styles that we have outstanding. We'll be in touch on that once we have a harder delivery date. If it doesn't make it in before Christmas, then it should be right afterwards.

Individual Customer MTO Images

We received a few individual MTO's which were made for specific customers as well. These were my three favorites...

Alt Wien Boot in Brown Chromexcel

This is done on the Forest Last with a commando sole. It made up really cool and rugged as hell. Took a long time because they had to rework the boot pattern to do it, but we could make another round of these pretty quickly now, and Chromexcel is one of the less expensive skins that they offer, so the price would be really solid.

Navy Shell Balmoral Boots

Love the bright eyes on these

Grey Suede Chukkas

Made for Styleforum's own LA Guy. They're on a natural crepe sole and have a medallion on the toe. It's a rad take on the Carmina chukka, and a much more direction design than what we usually see

The grey suede is pretty sick.
post #3837 of 4103
The balmoral boots are awesome, as are the suede chukkas.

Looking good, you did a marvelous job.

 

I can't wait to receive mine.

 

 

Also, thanks for the reply in regards to the shoe trees by the way.

 

Cheers,
