Have you checked your mouthwash recently?
Thanks! The only arrived this morning so I haven't had a chance to wear them yet - I thought I'd share my excitement first
I plan to get some metal toe taps put on them before I wear them and I'll post some pics once they've got their creases. For now though, they continue to take my breath away.
Thread readers :
Namor is currently on a plane to Madrid at the moment. He will return shortly.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
NAMOR, plz buy me one of every shoein Carmina's inventory in a size UK10. I will reimburse you for approximately none of them.
Seriously though, I might be joining the Carmina club soon...
Naka, what are you thinking of getting?
apropos. do you wear a moustache?
Betty is in the UK with the Armoury boys until tomorrow.
But 9 days is too long. Do you have the correct email?
The Punched Captoe in stock at the Armoury, in black and on the Simpson last. I tried on a pair of Balmorals locally, and the sleekness had me fully torqued. The waist on those shoes are incredible!
I think this year will be the first where I can participate in Movember, my half asian genetics don't encourage facial hair growth.
Very nice. Happy to say they don't have these online in anything near my size or I'd be tempted to see if I could fit in them. Enjoy these.
Thank you. I'm going to enjoy putting those first creases in.
By the way, does anyone with borderline wide feet have issues with the suede loafers on the Simpson last? My expectation is that the suede will give a fair bit. My feet are right on the border of medium and wide.
Indeed, but so are the ones to the left of the black and white ones
On the right =
agreed!! they're a fantastic looking shoe!!!
for your consideration about stretching and in particular suede.
i once talked to a shoemaker and he noticed that the shoes i wore, not suede, are a bit stretched. nothing to worry but noticeable for an expert. i assume that the chances are given that either the shape is affected and the material/construction has to "suffer."
as you already asked, it would be great, if somebody with first hand experience chimes in and my/your/our concerns get charmed away.
I haven't scanned this whole thread so sorry if this is a repost. I randomly found a decent bird's eye view of some of the Carmina lasts from a Russian forum.
There are some other pics in the thread too so here's the link to the whole thread: http://www.gentsclub.ru/checkroom-obuv-carmina-t1412.html?sid=f0527baf4267fd4be5c94a172cff2fcd
