Hi, folks. I’m new to Styleforum but not to the shoe/watch game. If it isn’t closed, I would love to be included in the Amaretto GMTO! Thank you.
It closes end of day tomorrow. I'll add you to the list

Which GMTO? If Amaretto, I can add you to the list.Please confirm. Carmina won't make Chelsea, Jodhpur or wholecut boots in cordovan.

Okay, I have what I expect is a really stupid question, but I am going to ask it anyway, as I feel the need to get back into the Carmina shoe game after a few years of abstinence (a few shoes bought through the Armoury, Epaulet and Skoatie, as well as the Paris store), and my friends remind me often that I am good at asking stupid questions (some friends, huh?!).

The web site looks much better than I remember when last browsing it a few years ago (when it had the sliding window and pop-up boxes). Can someone explain please though what the difference is on the site between "MTO groups (in process)" and "MTO finished".

My usual understanding of "MTO finished" would be "finished" - as in "tough luck, you were too late". However, the site offers the ability to choose a size and add to my cart for many of the "MTO finished" shoes shown (with a "45 days in production" message).

Does that mean that once a MTO moves from "in process" to finished do the details get moved to the "finished" list with an appropriate price increase so that it is in effect a "pre-setup custom order"? Or is the price still lower than an equivalent full custom order, as the details are already set up, so kind of a semi-MTO ...?

I ran a search for "MTO finished" for this thread and came up with nothing. Thanks for any answers!

We can create a group for 14-15 GMTO's, the only condition would be selecting amaretto cordovan as the main leather.

Do remember any special makes or modifications of patterns would have a surcharge.
I am interested!

One of my favorite attributes of a Carmina cordovan is that it is a much less thick leather than cordovan I have from Alden and AE. It has a supple wearing characteristic.
