I would be in if they resurrected the burgundy shell Salinger inca double monk.

I was thinking this, but I prefer this style. It looks about the same as the double monk but without the hassle of 2 straps.

 

that said, I'd be in if they brought that back too

yea...I don't have a belt that matches :)

^ You don't actually need a belt that matches. You can just wear a non-black belt and everything will be fine.

Really? I always get a matching belt with every shoe I get. (Unless I already have one in that color)

You certainly can get a matching belt with every shoe you get, but it's not necessary, even if the SF High Council has decreed it thus. As long as you have a brown belt and a black belt, you are ready for all occasions, and all shoes.

 

Not having a matching belt shouldn't impede you from buying a shoe. Rather, buying a shoe should inspire you to wear unexpected combinations and buy other garments, one of which might be a new belt.

edit - wasn't saying it was necessary at all, just saying that was what i did. (i just do it for color matching reasons, reduces the number of colors that are competing/contrasting, etc)

Ah I had thought you were saying it was necessary or that it limited you in buying shoes.

Anyway the burgundy shell dub monks would be pretty great!

Yea, definitely keen on the burgundy dubs.

 

I just had to send back a pair of Cognacs from the online store because they were too big and they don't have any replacements in my size.

Just purchased my first pair of Carmina's (shell longwings) and I love them. I would be interested in the MTO shell option(s). Can someone tell me what was decided on and whether there are spots available?

My apologies in advance as I have read the first 10 pages of the thread and couldn't find my answer.

For those interested in the MTO for navy shell single monk, this is the reply from mike of Epaulet. Let see who is interested, Mile can consider building it in their website for consolidation. 

 

Hi Alvin, 
 
Thanks for your email, and absolutely, we can definitely make this for you. The minimum order would likely require 8 people, but this was a popular style, so I can build it out on my site. 
 
For MTO options, you could do the last as RAIN or INCA, you could choose from a variety of soles, and you can choose a sole color and edge trim. If you wanted to make the shoe that we did, the main choice would be (1) which of the two lasts and (2) a dark brown, nearly black sole, or a medium brown sole.
 
Thanks,
Mike Kuhle

Hi Mike,
 
Thanks for your reply.
 
When you means build it on your site, you means "special orders" for footwear on your site?
 
For the MTO options, 
1) is ok. 
2) you are referring to the sole colour?  a dark brown, nearly black sole, or a medium brown sole.
 
Lastly, the MTO if work out, we will not be charged with MTO surcharge but the normal shell carmina price right? 
 
Thanks

Hi Alvin, 

Yes, I'll build the shoes on our website so that everyone can place their preorders there. And we can hopefully find more guys to make the 8-unit minimum. 
 
And yes, those color options are for the sole. There's other types of soles available as well (Dainite rubber, commando sole, natural crepe), but I imagine you'd want to stick with the leather sole to keep it a dressy style. So most guys would only customize the sole color in this scenario. 
 
And the group price would not include any kind of MTO surcharge. The shell cordovan price is changing this year, but it would be in the realm of $825 or so, including our US-made shoe trees. 

Thanks,
Mike Kuhle

I would join this but only if on the rain last so I can get the wide option that is available on that last.  I do not believe Inca has a wide fitting available like rain and forest do.  I hope the group can decide to go with rain.

Not exactly in the wild (I've only worn them twice) but here goes.......





Pretty bad iPad camera but the color is close to a lighter alden cigar with green undertones. I'm a big Alden fan but I love how these have a slightly sleeker look, giving them a more dressy feel.
