    The restocks we have coming soon were ordered before we joined styleforum so these won't include 11-12uk but we will try and order for the next round. Please let me know what models you are interested in and if you have any questions!

    I'm thinking about picking up a pair of the natural chromexels for jean wear. Nicely done!

    Thank you.


    The Chromexels were from Epaulet, and they included the Dainite sole.

    Those look great! What color of pants do you you usually wear with the suede/leather shoes?

    Just received those a couple of weeks ago, so I have yet to wear them yet.

    I had planned on wearing them with jeans though.

    I ordered the cognac shell double monks and can't tell from the photos on Carmina's website (dark brown) or kayjaybee's photo (light brown). I was going to get a MTO in saddle shell, but if they are truly light brown, then that would be wonderful.

    I just received my pair. They are very close to the website colour, and I'd say that the below image is fairly true to colour. I was hoping for a bit lighter shade of cognac noting what a lot of other people had been receiving, but I'm very happy with them.

    ^ I really wouldn't recommend a cognac MTO, just because of how much the shell can vary. Everyone has a different preference for which shade they want, so obviously not everyone can be pleased with what they get.

    Does Carmina source shell from Horween?

    I remember someone mentioning that they requested dark or light cognac when they did a MTO with Betty a few pages back. That said, an individual MTO is super pricey these days :/
