    If it's in the same color of mid-dark brownish shell cordovan and Dainite/Victory soles, I'd be in.

    You guys know there will be no Cordovan GMTOs or ready-to-wear styles for a while right? There is a severe Horween Cordovan shortage. Carmina only accepts single MTO Cordovan orders. That Frankenstitch might be the only new Cordovan style we see in many months. This is the only Cordovan style we have in stock now:

    :( oh yeah, forgot about the single part. Ugh. I thought Carmina uses Comipel or Japanese/Argentinian shell though?

    Yes I know about cordovan shortage. I would be interested in this boot in tan grain color.

    Very true.

    How much is Carmina charging for a one-off MTO nowadays?

    We have a new tan grain material coming from a Swedish tannery called Tärnsjö. It's the same leather we are using for our fur lined boots, launching later this month. This leather has been specially sourced by us, I visited the tannery about 6 months ago to see the whole tanning process and get a feel for the company. It's a really old tannery, tracing back their history to 1873.

    Great! I sent the exact same pair to Dandy Shoe Care a while back, can't wait to see the result. Not that EGs burgundy really needs improvement, but I was feeling a bit eccentric at the time. :)

    Now if I only could figure out that Rosewood CC Nevis \ G&G thing I'd be all set. I even thought about a Rosewood CC Dover. Is two Dover in two different colors of CC too much? LOL
