    If I would have known that I could have got MTO navy shell Bontoni's for a third of the price I would have jumped on them. :D

    Is there a Bontoni thread somewhere? I may need to check them out.

    I have a sizing question. I am about to step out on my first pair of Carminas, unfortunately, I have no option for trying a pair of carminas on. I love the 13 E (us) fit of Allen Edmonds on the 5-65 last. I am looking at pair of 13 E carminas on the forest last. Can anyone give me an idea about the fit I can expect?

    Has anyone actually seen/ordered the Carmina Jodpuhrs from the store in Spain?

    I'm seriously considering ordering. If anyone has, are they elegant and is the fit TTS?

    Suede and calf combo is hard to pull off
    Wingtip chelsea is tough to pull off as well
    Chiseled toe ......
    Suede, calf, wingtip, Chelsea boot on an aggressively shaped last has too much going on.

    Perhaps a solid calf wingtip boot on a slighly less square toe may be a more attractive option

    I bought them in Madrid and love them. They have two different jodhpur boots styles, the one on the forrest last (which I bought), but also one on a slimmer last. Imo the one on the forrest last is very elegant, but I do use them with jeans etc also.
