    To anyone else out there who got the cognac bal boot, did you have any exposed stitching around the toe and was the leather around the toe very dry and weak looking. The other boot is 100% perfect.

    anyone have interest in carmina version of the EG dover?

    i think its an extremely versatile shoe that would go with pretty much any epaulet pant.

    I think the Forest last will be ideal.

    Regarding the python austerity brogue (and assuming you will do another run): are Carmina able to supply a matching belt?

    Thanks,

    Stuart

    ^ Crepe souls are not the greatest. The York commando sole (leather/Dainite combo) is an excellent alternative -- or just a regular Dainite.

    I've got a tracking number from my friends at Epaulet for what's either 4 lbs. of Christmas candy or a pair of ruby shell cap toes. I'll find out on Friday. Hope it's not the candy. I'd have to hide that from my wife. She doesn't want me eating too much sugar. :)

    I'm fairly sure this just escaped Mike while he was writing the post. He's definitely working to get everything here ASAP.

    I actually laughed aloud when I read this last night...

    I think you just ensured Dylan is going to dream about this tonight.

    This could be so fresh! Hopefully it comes to fruition.

    OH SHIT! I think you're gonna be blown away by these. The color is so rich, the shape is damn near perfect and the finishing... [​IMG]

    It's hard to keep up with this thread with so many MTOs going on. The work I've observed from a far has been great. Keep it up
