Maybe it was a mistake. I once had one shoe (not the complete pair) misappropriated. It turned up 3 days later.
I stand corrected if the shoes were in a locker.
Hey all. American Tailors on Bourke St in Melbourne has a sale on the remaining Carmina stock they have. They had a black leather chukka, a swept back double monk, navy simpson last loafers and other shoes I can't remember. I bought some Simpson loafers in brown calf for $270. Lovely guys in the shop. Ridiculous value.
Those who need sizing help, this was very helpful: http://www.styleforum.net/t/291006/the-official-carmina-sizing-thread/0_100
If you can, check out Barton Periera and Cutler & Gross too. BP are from the makers of Oliver People's(l stand corrected) and have some incredible frames. A couple of months ago l looked at all the above and settled with a pair of CG's in the Melbourne frame. CG's are a higher price point, however the design and construction are amazing.
+1 on Cutler and Gross. They just.. feel right.
