No. He is mentioning a nice alternative to people who missed out on the very limited #4 captoe availability and who may be interested. If it was in the Carmina thread, some people here interested in a similar makeup could miss out.

LOL. I don't know how to answer that one. Sorry, I understand many people here are fans of Carmina, but I am . . . not so much. If they don't have a recraft service I can't take them seriously. Thinking cap screwed tightly on head. (Maybe more like and aluminum shield.)

With apologies for continuing this thread derailment, Carmina can be recrafted by any competent cobbler. For example, I'd imagine B. Nelson could and likely has worked with them. Given what we've heard about he state of Alden's recrafting services currently, I'm not sure they have much on Carmina there. Whether the shoes suit aesthetically or not is a totally different question and one that I'll never argue. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the shoe's he likes best in my book.

From time to time, people will post about comparable brands to Alden. It has happened with Ralph Lauren, Wolverine, Vass, whatever. That's all fine in my book. Many people want to learn about brands doing good things with cordovan, suede, etc. no issue with posting a Carmina boot in this thread

I'd have to think he'd go with an English boot, C&J perhaps?

Check/click the link in my signature.

Those are some coveted make-ups to be unloading.  Is everything okay?

Unreal price on those cigar PTBs, if they were my size I'd be scooping them up right now.
