These dark, dark brown Adelaides are eminently sensible for a suit heavy wardrobe.
This statement might hold true in some parts of the world, but I have the impression that is rapidly diminishing.

I work in NYC financial district and I see people rocking dark color oxfords with chinos, nice jeans or suits almost every day of the week.

Likewise, the opposite is also true. I had a meeting with a C level person from a large financial institution at the beginning of September and the guy was rocking a Banana Republic suit and wearing black Nike sneakers. My initial impulse was to walk out of the room.

Nowadays, 99.99% of the population does not give a crap on what you have on your feet.

Sadly, the last part is so true.

I just received my shipping notification for my Kirby pair. I have to figure I am the last one from that mto sale since I'd pontificated about the makeu up for an excessively long time.

In other news, I finally picked up a pair of c&j shell pembrokes (marlows) last night. They've been on my want list for quite some time.

Things are looking up this week. Now to figure out what to get for my color 4 order.

Well, I haven't had a shipment notice yet, so I don't think you're last.

I'm normally pretty patient but I sold a couple of pairs of rubber soled shoes and we've already had something like 3 snow storms this year...I need my new boots purely for practical reasons!

Hi fellow carminiers, my MTO zip boots arrived yesterday and I thought some of you would be interest in the style since it's not what you typically see from Carmina. I wanted some rugged boots I could wear casually with jeans and I really like how these turned out.
Model 10087, Oscar last and black hatch grain leather from horween.

Nice! How do they fit? Always worry about Chelsea boots not being snug enough. They look really cool.

Woke up to an amazing email this morning saying they could accommodate my order for color 4! Already placed an order for some NST boots on the forest last, natural storm welt and Carmina's commando sole with vintage brass/gold hardware.

They are pretty difficult to put on but once in they fit very good. I have big calves and these fit very good and snug around the leg, I can fit one finger between the leg and the shaft

I’m curious, what was the base model you selected for these in the customization tool?

Can't remember. Just selected a random boot and indicated in the notes section to make the model 10087 instead.
