    Ahh, sorry my question may have been confusing. I was checking to see if any of the corduroy fabrics that were available in the last round of factory finds would ever be made available in the Rivet cut (like the Bedford cords that are currently available). Or, are those corduroy fabrics only available in Walt or Rudy? I would love to get something like the current Bedford cords, only in a chocolate brown color, like the mocha cord fabric that was available last round.

    Gotcha. We can't do that at the moment. But we can work in the other direction.

    Wore my Ravello Brixton Alden's today. Haven't worn these for awhile and not sure why. I really like the boot and always get complements on them. If I understand correctly, some of you are still waiting on the second order of these (mine are from the original run). I know it sucks, but once they come in, you will be glad to have them.

    ^ You don't wear yours often? I wear mine constantly. They're excellent, although I like the Carmina version (the Sinclair) even better...

    I travel a fair bit and just don't like giving up space in my luggage for boots.
    Been thinking about the sinclair model also. What is it that you like better? Granted, I believe Carmina to be better made across the board (love the three pair I have and looking forward to my navy shell dub monks) but is there something else you like about them?

    Cool thanks for letting me know. Will there be any other colors of the Bedford cords anytime soon, or will it just be the three that are up now for a while?

    And that shirt is bonkers SVB, I couldn't pull that off but it looks great.

    Alden wingtip boots are great, and the way Mike and co do the Brixton is perfect -- Barrie last with all eyelets (I've always thought that the Barrie is a great boot last first and foremost). The burgundy calf and natural cxl Brixton are really terrific too. The Sinclair is just a tad sleeker, and the silhouette is different. Mostly, though, I like Camina's shell shades better. Saddle and burgundy shell are just stunning.

    They're both fantastic -- not a bad choice to have at all!

    Wj4: hems a little high with the cuff? I know thats how you like them, but to me the rivets are comparable to denim, and almost need a little stacking. But tastes differ.

    This is me today. Epaulet madras shirt and natural chromexcel belt. Navy suede Carminas.

    Those Carminas are great. Your stance looks like you're getting ready to fight.
