    a derby is a laceup shoe not a boot.

    balmoral = hidden laces

    i get that now, but usually when people on sf refer to derby, unless otherwise specified, it defaults to a shoe

    I wouldn't say that they were specific to one or the other.

    I was on the fence on the green shell. I should've leapt on them.

    Thanks to those who pointed out the far fetch sale. Shoes arrived, after missing delivery and hustling across town to pick them up from the courier. Rain last fits perfectly, slightly snug, but perfect on the width.

    Apologies for the crappy non natural light picture as its already late.

    These look awesome, and my size is still available on Farfetch. I'm thinking I should buy these sooner rather than later because they probably won't be available for much longer. Just starting a new job next week, so I need to wait until I actually get paid.

    Namor, those are some of the nicest I have ever seen! [​IMG] You have an amazing collection! We are trying to do an MTO for a more casual navy boot.

    These are damn nice but I went with the black captoe on farfetch instead. My first pair of carminas so if sizing works out I'll be tempted.

    Cross post from the Gentlemensfootwear.com thread..

    Carmina Navy Shell MTO that came in a few weeks back, courtesy of GentlemensFootwear.com. Navy shell captoe, dark brown edge trim, flat welt, single leather sole, brown lining.

    As I've mentioned before, the entire transaction went flawlessly and Young was a pleasure to work with. Thanks again!
