    We shall see. I doubt that he is highly motivated. Having retreated to Inca in order to live a 'rustic and uncomplicated' life he appears to be not particularly motivated about anything at all.

    I think these suede double monks are beatiful, it's the FILADELFIA-2AE last : Comfortable semi-
    squared last. But what does the 2AE stand for?

    I don't agree; they look a bit feminine with the close buckles. And if I'm not mistaken, you and I are in the same boat when it comes to shoe sizes, so these will probably not look right. I would rather reccomend another last, like the Inca or Simpson.

    Does anyone else have a problem in the e-store with viewing your shopping cart?

    It's happening to me whether I'm logged in or not. I can see the cart the first time I add an item to it, but after that, clicking the cart just brings me back to the shopping page.

    Beautiful! I wonder if there's any difference between those and the ones at The Armoury.

    A beautiful shoe! I have the same in burgundy and liked it so much it became my avatar [​IMG] The inevitable creases will only serve to add character. Remember to brush it well.

    Congratulations! [​IMG]

    Yes I've had that issue before also, with Goggle Chrome and Safari on my Ipad.

    That's odd that the brown is such a dark brown. I'm interested in this shoe, and I think it says on their website that this is "vegano brown," when this is much lighter and more red. Anybody know what this color is called in calfskin? That is, if it does exist as a different color than vegano brown.

    Vegano is a dark brown. They look really great in sunlight and I think they got that picture from a very well lit light box.

    Has anyone returned a pair of shoes to Carmina via mail? I'm thinking about ordering 2 different sizes and returning one, and wanted to see what other people's experiences have been with that.

    I'm itching to pull the trigger on a couple of pairs of Carmina.

    Does anyone have any experience with the Deia and Queens lasts?

    Fit info for the other lasts is easy to find but these lasts look quite good on the e-store and I want more info.
    I have emailed them twice now with no reply. :brick:
