    It looked like they were pretty stocked, they have at least a dozen different pairs in cordovan, I am pretty sure you would be able to score a pair, at least.
    Give them a call before 7pm, the store was not too busy.

    I believe that the 10% promo ends today. That unless they decide to extend it, which has happened in past, including during the 80K Instagram promo.

    Usually the store does not carry EEE widths, but it wouldn't hurt to give them a call to find out.

    Umm, I forgot to ask, sorry.

    Does anyone have any opinions on the robert last vs forest last when it comes to balmoral boots? I'm looking to pick up a full leather balmoral boot in both black and dark brown, but I'm just not sure about the last.

    I have a jodhpur boot in forest and it fits great and everything, but I heard the robert last was a more "formal" looking last which is suitable for a balmoral boot.

    I would have to wait until there is a promo that waives the MTO fee if I do the robert last however.. if I went forest, at the very least I could jump on the promo going on right now and buy the forest lasted black balmoral on the site

    Yes they showed up today.

    Thankfully perfect fit really spot on for a slip on, good fit toe area, perfect width, heel cup good grip not to tight, finally the instep just nice a tiny ever so tiny snug fit just like you want a slip on to be when new. I can see these becoming my go to shoe easy on out the door.

    So in AE I am exact 10D and the Carmina 9E fits dead on so if you are 9D in AE the Carmina 8E should be the way to go.

    The NYC store has nice burgundy shell tassel loafers and shell penny loafer in bourbon, they say they have many sizes available Also these are all on sale 25% off plus the 10% off too so nice deal. Oh and they have at least 12 other shell shoes and probably 25 calf included in the sale too.

    So you may just get what you want in your size.

    Def NOT black/burgundy or black/brown

    I guess i'd go with #1 if I had to choose, but I don't think any of them will turn out well.

    @IHaveNoNiceClothes @eremita Thanks so much for replying! I did chat with the Carmina representative on their .com website the other day and got information that the Audrey is regular fit, so it should fit without sizing up or down.
