    There is no such thing as GG or EG RTW Cordovan boots. But if there would be they should be around €1200+.

    very nice boots! they look more like saddle than cognac shell though. i have a similar shoe version of that boot, it's a brogue captoe oxford and it's also on the robert last.

    I just got my Rain Chelseas and while the fit seems good, the toe is definitely more like C&J 348 rather than like C&J 337 as I had hoped. Grr...

    What do you mean by this? Do you mean that they run long and narrow, or that the chisel is more akin to the 348 chisel?

    This image of the "797": http://cdn.styleforum.net/a/aa/aa7fc7fa_nah_2637.jpeg is actually the 80184. It was a mistake on Mr. Horween's part here, originally (in the comments): http://horween.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/perks/

    The REAL 797 is this boot, only on the Forest last (according to Betty): http://carminashoemaker.com/web/hom/coleccion_modelo_detalle.php?lang=eng&dist=g&id_col=21&id_mod=81&id_modFull=0,70,85,84,83,81,80,79,78,77,76,75,74,73,71,86

    I don't think they normally stock the 797, since she said (a year ago, mind you) that they didn't have a sample to send a picture.

    The 80184 is on the Oscar last.

    CARMINA MTO!


    Since we will have a store in Sweden selling Carmina from 11 october (http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se) i wanted to do a MTO. I sent NAMOR a PM since he said in this thread that he was thinking the same. We decided to do a copy of the boot Nick at Horwwen got from Carmina, except with dark green lining. If you want in you are more than welcome, if we are six people we avoid the MTO fee. I you want in write in the thread so others know but please PM me so i don´t miss anyone.

    The design is set and not up for discussion.


    This is the details:

    Model 80184
    Cognac Shell
    Dainite sole
    Green Lining
    Speedhooks
    Flat Welt
    Last: Oscar
    Price in SEK with VAT: 5700
    Price in SEK without VAT: 4560

    Regarding price. I need to get final confirmation from Leaves since Carmina did raise their prices this week.


    This is the boot:

    ^ That boot will be totally awesome, and that's an amazing price for an MTO.

    From Skoaktiebolagets web:

    "...We will also accept “group MTOs". If you have a group of friends or colleagues who would like to create a certain model, we are happy to oblige. A minimum of six pairs in any model/colour/last is required to do a “group” MTO. This way, we won't have to charge you the extra MTO surcharge. This service is available for all of our three major brands; Carmina Shoemaker, Edward Green, Gaziano & Girling."
