    In (again)

    I would prefer leather sole, but its not a deal breaker. I don't have any experience with Dainite
    Don't care about the lining, but would prefer NOT black (ugly)
    Welting I could go either way
    Lasts: Robert or Oscar don't mind too much

    I might be interested, I would need to know the final details before committing however.


    First time ordering a Carmina shoe or boot, so I would want to make sure I got the size correct first.

    What do we think about the York sole? The combo leather/dainite sole that Carmina offers would work well. I would be up for that. As for lining, I think we should take a vote between Tan and Purple since those seem to be the colors people are least opposed to (black and brown would admittedly be fairly boring).

    I can't commit to the MTO this time either, but I'd be looking at something like the following if I could.

    Congac shell
    Storm welt
    Double leather soles
    Just a standard boot height, not the high boot as pictured. Think Epautlet height
    Straight cap
    Robert last

    A humble request regarding the "round 2 shell MTO".


    Can the person who is in charge of this gather all interesed and talk details in PM. Then you can post the shoe that people can sign up for here and they can send a PM if they want in. Otherwise this thread will be filled with talk about what lining color and welt you want. Thanks.

    They are one of the most beautiful tassel loafers I've seen. If I didn't already have a (different) pair of tassels, I would have bought these.

    Apparently it's a lack of demand thing. I'm pretty sure I could just do a MTO direct with Carmina. I want those in calf with a leather sole :drool:
