It sounds like there are a lot of awesome makeups in there that I would want to get in on before the price increase, but it looks like a lot of those January arrivals for Carmina haven't shown up on your website yet. If possible, can you divulge how much of that list is going to be made available for purchase before March? Thanks!

Many of these are delayed. I just updated our site.

Rothschild mailman shoe GMTO details.

 

At this point I see no reason not to use the same details that Leffot used:

 

This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling's classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it's tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.

Features: MH71 last, Chestnut Hatch Grain, Ridgeway soles

Personally I'd rather stick with the hidden eyelets.

 

I hope this doesn't mean your out though?

So did you decide the speed hooks weren't that bad after all?

Agreed on the juxaposition of double leather and Veldt. I would go Dainite as Ridgeway is likely more heavy than you want.

As far as I know EG does not offer an antique style edge trim. The three offerings I am aware of are:
Natural
Dark brown
Black

EG has a mid brown as well thats what the color if the edge trim is in my avatar. I emailed EG direct to make sure my mto didn't get submitted with the wrong specs.

@Leaves - I have a question about that brown semi broque in rain last on your website. Will that be suitable for someone with slightly high instep?

I have an oxford in forest last and its kind of tight for me at the top (where the laces are knotted).

BTW, model 10027 is a 3 eyelet chukka on rain, which is what you wanted instead of 5, right?

 

Hadn't seen that model. Thanks for the heads up.

Yes, Rain is more generous across the instep. Please email us for specific fitting advise.

@Leaves Is the Carmina austerity brogue in "the usual" vegano brown, i.e. the same color as the semi-brogue?

Question for you guys, we've been experimenting a bit with the presentation of our pictures the last couple of months. Which type of shot do you guys feel represents the shoes best?

Neutral grey background?




...or store background?

post #8819 of 24885

Store.    I always think your stock photos are very good, and a great representation of what the product actually looks like in person.  

post #8820 of 24885

@Leaves, I prefer the store background.
