I've never worn that last before. I usually take a 9.5 on the MH and TG

It's caught my eye for a while for sure. Beautifully done
The calf/suede combo from EG that I love is the Harrogates. I just can't fit EG which is frustrating.

Thanks gents. I'll probably pull the trigger in the next day or two.


Initially I intended on getting the Harrogate, but then I decided to go for the Malvern in chameleon calf\loden suede.

That sounds like it would be up my alley. When do you take delivery of those?

Also is there something you wouldn't wear spectators with? Obviously a more business suit but a casual suit would work as well as trouser and sportcoat right?

I ordered these 1 Jan, so expected delivery is May. Typically I wear my Carminas with Jeans, and i'll more than likely do so with my EGs. But I can certainly see them going with trousers and sport coat.

Carmina Black Grain Jumper GMTO

 

Below are the details for the make up I am proposing:

 

Make: Carmina jumper through Skoaktiebolaget

Toe design: Straight cap toe

Leather: Black grain calf

Last: Oscar 

Sole: Victory 

Eyelets: 5 eyelets with 3 speed hooks in gunmetal

Welt: Storm

Pull tab: yes

Edging: All black

Lining leather: Maroon or purple.  Probably purple.

Cost: The base price is $380 for the jumper boot so it will be the same as that plus shipping, which will depend on where you live. For us in the USofA I’m guessing it will cost around $420 shipped. 

 

I made an Imgur album of some similar make ups to give an idea of what it could look like.  So far there are 5 people interested, only need one more to waive the MTO fee.

 

Open to changing anything except the leather and sole.

Carmina jumper sounds great. I'm in - vote for purple or royal blue liner

I've got purple lining on my Carmina black scotch grain jumpers, it's great.

How does the Soller size compared to the Rain and Forest? I take a 7.5 in rain and 8 in Forest.

Great choice, Congrats.

 

 

Did they have you size already in stock, or will you have to wait for a refill?

First wear of the model Galway. Actually wasn't planning on wearing them but it started snowing so I figured it's a good christening:
Edward Green Galway

@Ironist, I also don't find the dark oak too dark. I used clear wax to take a little of the brown off and it looks just right to me.

Looking good, Dppr!

A little neutral polish and wax knocked mine down a couple shades as well.
