    ^ Is the first one the 922 in marron? I knew that would look great, but the MTO never took off. I'm glad it will now be an option.

    Do you have a hard date for the opening of the webstore, Steve? I'm pumped for a domestic retailer of Cappelli ties.

    Guys, help me please. I have the Church Consul last 173. They are very good for me in 8UK size. What size Carmina Simpson last I need to buy? Size 8 ? Simpson is narrow in the toe. Maybe 8.5 ?

    I would say 8.5. For 173 I am 8.5UK. I tried a pair of Simpson before and 8.5 is too tight.

    Hi there! Unfortunately we are an online only operation at this point (web-store launch end of May).
    You are more than welcome to visit either my LA or San Diego office/warehouse if you would like to see the products!

    Thank you sir!

    Hi EMartNJ! If everything goes as planned with the photographer & web-designer guy, I say last week of May! Stay tuned! Affiliate Thread will pop up here in SF soon as well!

    Sky! I loved the MTO idea so much, I decided to stock them for my store! (although very limited size/quantity)
    That Navy Shell Wholecut Wing might also happen in few month btw. Cheers mate!

    Bought these yesterday from leatherfoot.

    just wearing it at home during the breaking-in phase.

    Was a toss-up between RTW Carmina vs MTM from a local shoemaker. Carmina won (mainly due to immediate availability + goodyear v blake welt)

    It's amazing how many retailers on this forum are selling Carminas.
