    We will have the double monk in Black Calf, but not the split toe monk in Black Calf. It's possible for made to order, of course.

    Really nice. The more i see from the collection you will offer the more i´m convinced that your store will be somthing special. I get the impression that you made the carminas to suit the swedish market and not just base models, i´m i right? If that´s the case Carmina will take market shares from C&J very quick.

    I really like Carmina, have three shoes that i picked up in Palma and Barcelona. The first pair is almost two years old now, don´t think many swedes owned a Carmina two years ago :)

    Thanks for the encouragement! Yeah there's been a lot of adaptation to Scandinavian climate; many of the models we have brought in this fall will be with on the Carmina York sole, which is a leather/rubber hybrid sole. We also have quite a lot of Dainite and double leather sole shoes and boots. Here are a few goodies. We launch the website on Monday (Oct 1) hopefully, we're working around the clock to shoot all the shoes. :)

    Leaves, will you carry 11uk? Or does the line stop at 10.5uk? Also, is it possible for SFers to colloborate on a makeup and then get some hybrid MTO pricing? If so, how many people would we need?

    Some retailer (or the factory) needs to get a black cap-toe balmoral (oxford) on rain last made. I think it would look amazing, better than the current black wholecut.

    Dibbs on the size UK11 of this model if there is one to be had. In fact, Leaves why don't you just sell them to me now?Consider it a soft opening.

    I have to say I'm very very excited. Any black balmorals (boot or shoe) with a york or dainite sole?
