    Can anyone suggest a shop in London that has a good selection of Carminas?

    Croc is not that expensive (about 20% more expensive than Shell). Gator though is much more expensive, about $1900 ex Swedish VAT.

    Try Hackett on Jermyn Street (and possibly Sloane Square too). A lot of their shoes are made by Carmina. They had a good selection before Christmas. Matches are also stocking them this season according to their website. No idea if they're instore yet but they weren't online the last time I looked. The Spencer Hart flagship in Mayfair used to stock a couple of models too. One was a black suede austerity brogue, can't remember what the other was.

    Matches have just 2 models. Not bad prices (with VAT removed in my case).

    Last week I bought a pair of Carmina shell single monks from Brogue, Geneva Switzerland. They had 2 Carmina models in Cordovan on sale (for 295 CHF - 300 USD), the owner confirmed that Cordovan does not sell much in Europe.

    I'm glad you got the boots that you waited for so long! And I hope the Jodphurs are equally to your satisfaction.

    That pair is unreal. Copper eyelets do wonders for brown and burgundy shell
