Is it the real one with the wood base instead of plastic.
X-post from Carmina thread (for reference, the medium brown captoe derbies, the polo loafers and the EBs are from Skoaktie):
Hey folks, took all my dress shoes out for some TLC later tonight so had a chance for a team photo:
Back row (L-R): Enzo Bonafe oxfords in brown grain and loden suede, Carmina PTB in loden suede, Carmina captoe oxford in dark brown suede, Carmina string loafer in polo suede, Meermin captoe quarter brogue oxford in snuff suede, Meermin monks in maracca suede
Front row (L-R): Carmina captoe brogue oxford in dark brown calf, Carmina split toe in dark brown grain, Carmina captoe derby in brown calf, Carmina wingtip derby in burgundy calf, Alden Dover PTB in #8 shell, Meermin austerity brogue in light brown grain
Here are a couple color comparisons:
Carmina calf: Dark brown (bottom), mid brown (middle), burgundy (top)
Loden suede: (left is Enzo Bonafe, right is Carmina)
Suede (L-R): Carmina dark brown, Carmina polo, Meermin snuff
My next shoe will most likely be from EB. Just a pain in the ass to have to start from scratch w/r/t sizing again. Come to SF on your US tour and bring some EB with you!
