I'm partial to BootSpell and Kwhitelaw's preference as well, with the understanding that the original idea was for ruby. If that's the case, I'd be interested in subsequent makeups, if any come up for discussion.

Perhaps the idea was to create a very typical Alden boot via Carmina rather than a boot similar to one that Carmina already makes?

 

I'm hoping your last sentence is correct. I have never dabbled in carminas because their last are more narrow and formal looking which isn't a look that I'm interested in. I though the idea was to do cognac shell, if the makeup is ruby shell I would definitely be out.

I find that the full strap and tassel are considerably more dressy than the LHS. But then again the L stands for leisure. biggrin.gif

Yes! It made it easier to pull the trigger.  Very excited. Thanks.

BTW, OP with the original idea for this - probably should go ahead and make a new thread so the Alden thread doesn't get cluttered with Carmina MTO talk. However, great idea to start the talk in here to get a bunch of Alden addicts on board smile.gif

Count me in as interested as well.

Also, second the thought of a dedicated thread.

I bought them here in the classifieds section new. They are from a Leathersoul run that they did back in March 2012.
