y'all already know the deal
are you getting a Meermin double monk or Carmina? those look like Meermin ptbs
If you are getting Meermin, go with the the brown. That brown is the darkest brown shell ive ever seen. would look amazing as a DB
the sinclair boot is unreal in person. I got a chance to see it this past weekend and was blown away. had Mike brought a size 12, would have probably walked away with a pair. congrats NYR
cognac. very nice. would you describe them as a light brown?
Yes - light brown seems a good description. Although Cognac sounds tastier, doesn't it?
yes, i special ordered these from the armoury since my size was sold out. i went one size down from my normal US size and the special order turnaround was just under 3 months. the robert last is great, fits true to size and appears fairly sleek without being too narrow. these are my first pair of carminas, but i will definitely be on the lookout to add another pair in the fall.
yes it do. so much so that I want to post an inappropriate .gif but im at work
perfect. ive heard great reviews about the robert last. I first saw it on a boot but im equally impressed with how it looks on a dress shoe. enjoy wearing
Carmina shell wholecuts on the Rain last
+1. very nice. Carmina does a great job with shell
Gerry, you have done well! I have been oggling these in navy for quite some time.
I am very interested to see how the shell reacts to the wholecut makeup.
Please keep us posted.
@taxgenius: thank you!
@NAMOR: As a Sultan of Shell, you'd definitely know that!
@Gdot: Thanks for the kind words! Your green shells are definitely stunners! I'll keep you posted on how the shell goes with the wholecut makeup - so far, it's creasing at the toecap. I will see what difference a good brushing makes.
Right now, I'm thinking about going down the MRO route with Carmina to get myself a pair of shell wingtip boots but on a wider last like the Soller. I was very impressed with the pictures of what Carmina did for Epaulet.
Thinking about a colour somewhere between the Epaulet Salinger and the C&J Ralph Lauren Lindrick.
Creasing at the toe cap is a perfectly fine start, no?
