1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Updated: price drop to $350 shipped ($130 less than current Carmina pricing). Last drop before eBay.

    Brand new, never worn burgundy Rain last punch caps with tirmitpr sole from the recent Skoak GMTO. These are beautiful shoes and a great GMTO - a classic style with a versatile tormir (very discreet rubber) sole. I love these and was really looking forward to them but unfortunately was poorly advised on sizing. I put the right shoe on and immediately knew there's no way they're fitting. Size is UK8.

    As a GMTO these are not returnable to Skoak, so I'm simply trying to get my money back here. My listed price is ca. $100 cheaper than the current going rate for Carmina's on Skoak's site (after taxes and shipping). Price includes shipping to US 48, or I can deliver if you live in Manhattan or Brooklyn. If you're interested an live outside the U.S. Let me know and I'll investigate shipping.

    Could you advise a bit on how this is compared to AE 5 last? or Meermin size?

    My understanding is that 8UK on the Rain last is equivalent to 9US on the AE 5 last - although I don't own any U.S.-sized shoes for comparison.

    Thanks Tweedy!!!! Not sure why someone hasn't jumped on these yet. On the "best of" thread there's a used pair at the same price and a new pair for $100 more...

    I'll say it again for anyone looking for a classic shoe, this is great deal. Perhaps it's the burgundy as opposed to brown that is slowing sale down. How "red" is the Carmina burgundy relative to its mid brown?

    Anyway: patience. B&S is a slow process, I've found.

    They're a bit more on the reddish side. The pic below (not mine since I suck at photography) gives a good view of the IRL color. They're going to develop awesome patina.

    It's very nice. I need a brown cap toe though to replace an older pair.

    Anyway: bumping this listing. It's a great deal.
