While I know it's totally irrational, I'm hoping their time in the shoe box over my weekend away has evened them out. I'd be psyched to have a pair of either the left or the right colored shoe; just not the two of them together.post #61101 of 1224169/22/13 at 5:57pm
and on a different last than barrie if i remember correctly, maybe aberdeen? i know sid mashburn in atl had an un-advertised ravello makeup in very limited sizes last time in was in there 6 months or so ago.Quote:
pics of said 25 y.o. chukkas? i love pics of new makeups as much as the next guy, but this thread seriously needs an infusion of older and well worn shoes.post #61102 of 1224169/22/13 at 5:58pmQuote:Originally Posted by brp2

shame, but if it were me, I'd return them.unrelated, but similar.. the ravello LWB I purchased this week have an 'obvious' cleanup mark on the toe. I'll assume at the factory. not bad enough for me to return, something similar would happen if stepping off a curb poorly.the color difference in your chukkas, I dont think I could live with. just my .02post #61103 of 1224169/22/13 at 6:20pmpost #61104 of 1224169/22/13 at 6:36pmpost #61105 of 1224169/22/13 at 6:38pm
Does anyone know the Dover PTB style numbers? Union made have some suede on the Barrie Last.
Basically would be useful info (for when the shoemart list to go around) to know what style numbers designate Dover - other than just looking at the shape obviouslypost #61106 of 1224169/22/13 at 6:39pmpost #61107 of 1224169/22/13 at 6:59pm
Pretty sure the shoe is this pair on the modified last. Price was like $500 too but they don't ship to US

I'd been hesitant to start another Carmina discussion in this thread, but now that it's been introduced ...
Forum affiliate Gentlemens Footwear recently did a group MTO of a Carmina longwing on the Detroit last using dark cognac cordo and a dainite sole. I decided to pass because I prefer a double leather sole, but I was tempted because I like the look a lot and it would be a chance to fill the cigar whole in my life. I'm curious if others would be interested in putting together a group MTO for that shoe but with a double leather sole.
Find somewhere else to peddle your Spanish shell!
