    Why do all the dark-brown shoes look light brown on the site? Are they that light?

    I'm not a big fan of it either, but you have to remember that unless you're wearing it with shorts, the boot is covered from the ankle up.

    They are not. This is more true to their color.

    If you create an account and set your country to wherever you live, I think the site will automatically adjust prices to show you the price after VAT reduction. For me, it was a reduction of about 15%. Shipping was 40euros for 1 pair, 50 I believe for two. That too you can see if you have an account and add items to your cart.

    I stopped in to the Nettleton Shop off of Pittsburgh's Market Square this week and the owner, Scott, mentioned that he will carry Carmina this fall. Expecting delivery of severl different models in October. Mostly Forest last, as I recall, but also a cognac cordovan longwing on the Detroit. That sounds pretty nice, though I have no idea how it would fit. Give him a call, perhaps. He was a pleasure to talk with.

    As a Carmina reseller, you can spec pretty much anything you like. Depends on the person placing the order really.

    Maybe you won't even have to go MTO, we're carying the following in Cordovan,
    Wingtip Oxford on Forest last in Burgundy Cordovan
    High Lace up Balmoral boot on Robert last in Cognac Cordovan
    Split Toe Derby on Queens last in Saddle Cordovan

    Either way you are welcome from October 11. :happy:
