So finally I decided to become an affiliate, which means I can talk a little more freely finally!

So any questions about Carlos Santos or inquiries about GMTOs, I can take care!

Here's a shot I took today while on quarantine as a precaution at home of my first ever Carlos Santos Wine Shadow Monks. Almost 2 years old or so. Pretty happy about how little creasing I have had with so much wear.

So I received a GMTO Interest check from a fellow member. Would any of you happening to be browsing this thread be interested in this make up? (Thank you Roger for the picture!).

Even though I like the recent models you have posted, as I am in "quarantine mode" and I can't move from home, my interest in buying shoes or boots has dropped to zero. As we are living a very uncertain time that could last for a while, I enjoy the photos and make a mental list of what I would like when this nightmare has passed. Until then, I feel it's no time for shopping...

Don’t worry my friend! Priorities come first, shoes second!

Congrats, they look fantastic! You seem to have the same "issue" as me on my Carlos Santos boots. The leather near the cap toe stitching stretching and not being dyed. I've only seen this on Carlos Santos shoes so far, why is that? (this is a super minor issue but I feel like there should be an easy way to solve it for them. I guess it's because the patina is made after the shoes are fully finished)

Good eye, but actually this is because I put a little more polish there and it created white residue which I saw after the picture! The Patina is indeed made after the shoes are finished.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
