Will you restock the Carmina calf/grain balmoral boot anytime soon?

When you guys have six confirmed we'll start the actual "official" GMTO by sending out e-mails etc.

Thanks for the info!

How many would be into this? This would be my first Carmina boot, so I'm not too familiar with lasts. Something forgiving, preferably. Forest? Punch cap, either leather or Dainite sole, black calf upper and black suede shaft. I'm open to eyelets and speed hooks, leaning toward having speed hooks, for convenience sake. Pretty much this exact boot:



So... Takers?

Full brogue is a wingtip while half is a captoe

what constitutes a full brogue vs semi-brogue? does a medallion factor into the discussion at all or is it about the punching? and where its located (heal counter, vamp, lacing throat, etc)

What I've most commonly heard is:

 

Full brogue referring to a wingtip with medallion/general punching.

Half brogue referring to a cap toe with medallion.

Quarter brogue referring to a punched cap toe without a medallion.

 

But I've also heard a lot of dispute over the differences in what defines a "half" or "quarter" brogue, and the arguments on either side are usually rather pedantic.

This was just restocked about a month ago, so it's going to take a while for it to crop up again.

Thanks for info, how about the 2102 in terms of width / instep to 888 or Carmina Rain?

Frankenstitch shell cordovan NST Boot, MTO anyone?
post #4613 of 23719
Seems like you are not aware that Carmina is not accepting cordovan orders, and has not been for some time

How can a Frankenstich captoe and a NST be on the same boot?

That's enough of an answer for me.
