    Much appreciated random-adam! [​IMG]

    And I'm purchasing the brown shell PA to be my go to brown shoe for the next decade or so. Already have calf PA in brown, burgundy, and black....but the brown is looking a little worse for wear these days. If I like it, I'll probably phase out all the calf and replace with burgundy.

    Hmmm... Sun, warmth, great music, beautiful ladies, and real seafood. Although I wouldn't turn down some red beans and rice right now.... If we can talk Al into bringing a Shoofly pie down for desert and a brick or 2 of Scrapple for breakfast I'll buy ALL the beer!! [​IMG]

    No, these are $299/each. Pretty good price for shell. It's not as good as $125, but still good....

    Pretty good?!?! That price is amazing! It's essentially half price, and it's a more exotic shell.

    Someone please tell me that I have to save money for my wedding, because I'm very close to pulling the trigger on these.

    This, my friend, is a deal. I'd also like him to bring one of those roast pork/broccoli rabe sandwiches.

    Major props to jvc. I got a pair in my size! Can't wait to get them.

    This is a great thread. Keep posting deals! Edit: Post the next deal after my next paycheck, lol.

    You guys aren't helping... Or are you helping? I haven't decided that one yet.

    These are on the 1 last? I do have Malvern's in 10D on the 1 last so I know they'll fit...[​IMG]

    Thought I'd mention that I am pretty sure Carmina uses shell from an Italian supplier called Comipel, not from Horween like the others. It is supposedly shinier, a little softer, and more "calf" feeling than Horween's shell. Tricker's also uses it.

    This is awesome. Just ordered a pair. Thanks for posting!

    Also, I think this was said before, but just to be clear. These are first quality. Rick said he's a retail store and cannot sell seconds.

    $299 is insane. I think the shell looks great on this design. And this color shell is hard to find.

    I wasn't sure you could get any through TSA! I have had Leona Meat Plant in Troy Pa. (Bradford County) ship me some before, they get it from Sunbury, Pa. How a man can go hunting without a decent breakfast of scrapple is beyond me...

    The Malvern is a flyer on the 1 last, it fits much tighter than any other 1 last shoe or boot that I own. I returned mine. Go for it.... you can always return them if they don't fit?

    Townleys are so tempting...

    I wear a 10D in the 5 last (Fifth Avenue and McAllister). Would 10D or 10.5D be better on the 1 last? Any idea?

    No problem. I check in once a day here when I can; just have not posted a lot lately. It took me about 30 seconds to think about it, because it likely means I'll put off the RL Marlow again for a while (similar). But then when I saw the list of sizes left, I somehow mentally decided I should just call and get it over with! I loved the pictures of these when the gent before got them for $125. I don't know why I even hesitated here. Something about shell really lends itself to bluchers, captoes, and brogueing, especially in this color. And this is a good last for me.

    I don't know how man existed before scrapple!

    Are you saying the Malvern fits tighter, or the Townley fits tighter? Because my malvern's are a bit tight on me.
