I have to say it’s wired choice, Grey Suede Chelsea boots. For Jeans or chinos? Anyway, thanks Carmina’s great service for this MTO order.
I don't see how those work for chinos, but both blue and white jeans work.

Trying to keep my brain busy in times of COVID-19 so is Shoeshine Time, until quarantine lasts.

Brand: Carmina
Model: Blucher 531
Supplier: Carmina
Last: Detroit
Colour: Burgundy darkened with black Kiwi wax.
Note: Carmina shoes are incredible. My first pair of Carmina, bought in Madrid in my wedding trip. I was looking for brown and wheren't available at that moment, beautiful shoe, beautiful stores. I was planninig trip on september to pic a couple of pairs (maybe MTO, same model in brown and black) but time will tell.

Mis mejores deseos a España y los españoles en esas épocas difíciles. Gran abrazo.

Cognac shell LWB on detroit

bourbon grain shell with natural shell rear quarter chukka on sineu

color 4 shell double stitch cap toe boot on Oscar.

the boot is a standard cap toe boot, without any brogue patterns, the medallion would’ve looked out of place.Typically, a medallion would accompany some brogueing on the cap or a half brogue design.
Thanks for the points you make on the medallion. Makes complete sense. I wear an 8.5 Oscar boot. How do you compare your experiences with the Detroit and Sineu lasts?

Question for the group.

does anyone have the new beechwood shoe tees with the springs in a uk7?

I have 5-6 sets of the hinges in uk7 and uk7.5, and would actually prefer the spring version for a few of the pairs. Would love to either buy or trade if hinges for spring if anyone has them and would like to do it.

I am still waiting on a few sets of the spring version I purchased back in November and December with my custom orders but have yet to receive them. With the covid-19, I don’t really expect to anytime soon. Hence seeking the alternative option of trading or buying here

here is the version I am seeking:

I have a question for anyone that owns a Carmina belt. Can they be shortened? Trying to decide on what size to get.

I find they run a size small, but looks like you can unscrew the bolt in order to shorten.
what do you mean with small? I have one Carmina belt in 36 with a 32 waist (and 34 for most belt brands)
