• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Ordered a pair in brown karagrain and received a dark brown cream polish and a small brush. The cream polish is branded Carmina, but I think it might be Famaco? The listed ingredients are the same and the jar/lid are identical and stack perfectly.
If you could show us some pictures of your Karangrein shoes, it would be informative and I would be very gratefull !

What is the difference between Carmina's Saddle cordovan and Natural?

Also Rubi and Color #4?

Here you are! The light is poor (they appear lighter and show more depth in daylight), but this shows off the texture well, I think. This is 80184 in brown Karangrain on the Oscar last with a Victoria sole, supposedly a chestnut edge and a storm welt.

As you can see the grain is uneven, which I like, and lighter, though still present on the toe. There is a small stain on the right shoe, but it takes a close eye, otherwise they are perfect. Good job @Carmina !

Should I be worried about the creasing location on my left pair?

Hi Carmina. Can you please do a comparison for me between Oscar, Soller and Forrest lasts?

Gracias!

Gorgeous. Did you select double leather soles for this pair?
Thanks! Yes, these are double leather soles. I also requested a light chestnut edge, which turned out even better than I expected. I wanted something just a little bit more finished looking than natural but I didn't want it to be anywhere near as dark as chestnut usually seems to be. Carmina should really consider offering this color as a standard option, in my opinion.
