3 eyelet derby in oxblood.


You need something in the burgundy/number8/oxblood colour spectrum.

lol no they wont.

cyc, i really like the second pair. id recommend looking at the carminas on leatherfoot.com. lots of options and well under 750.

I did not realize carmina was that inexpensive relative to what i have paid for my SW&D footwear...

Anymore places similar to leatherfoot? Good website.

Skoaktiebolaget is the cheapest for US buyers and you won't get customs, gentlemans footwear is also attractively priced. Epaulet gets a lot of nice makeups, as you in SF, Wilkes stocks a few models (also in PA I think). Shoemart also has a few models. Carmina has their own webstore too but ship dhl so some customs risk.

And a good amount of sw&d is pretty ridiculously overpriced for what you are getting

I should clarify SW&D as in boots and shoes. Sneakers are for kiddies

Looks like the [actual real life] 1912 Naval Peacoat, though in charcoal instead of navy

looks like you got it all covered.. why still more MC shoes?

 

if you want something different try burgundy/oxblood.   the carmina ones are great.  i got one in the can't rem whether it was rain last?  or forest.. hmm.  it's a narrow round toe-ed one though. 

 

(oops repeated)

 

i ordered direct from Carmina.. they can do anything u want so long as u give them the exact colour, and last.  only pay a premium if it's MTM (e.g. if they don't have what u want made up alreadty)  paid through paypal.. i think i had to pay customs though.  If you ordered from Epaulet which looks like where the first pic came from i think there's at least a 15-20% premium. 

 

i don't think CM is into dub monks much actually.. i think most of them hate dub monks.

Deciding whether to buy a vintage n3b parka (original fur). Size should fit me well, not sure how high I should go to pay for it...excellent condition for how old it is.

Any advice?
