We did the same shoe as a group buy that we received last month...they're awesome!!
I was hoping to get some input on my search for a black punch-cap shoe.
I'm torn between the C&J Westbourne (currently on sale for $419) or the Carmina Simpson (would be about $550).
Any advice form those who could help is much appreciated.
should be similar to your vass. go from there...
imo, tts is not a proper indicator.
First pair of Carminas: green shell wingtips on the Rain last. I went w/ my usual 9.5UK RTW size, and they're super comfortable right out of the box.
I love them! When do you plan to wear them? Work?
Great shoes...in fact I just ordered the same pair in burgundy shell. Question: how long did it take to get confirmation/shipping notice after you ordered? I purchased mine 3 days ago and haven't heard a thing.
Give it a few more days. Once it does ship it only takes 1 day to get over here plus however long once it's in the country.
After sending a paypal payment to Betty 6 days ago, I never got a confirmation but got the shoes today.
edit: Got a reply from Betty. Apparently she is in NY on her iPhone.
you and gdot better coordinate whose wearing em on what day
they are beautiful btw
Those green wingtips are fuuckhin' awesome
This will not alleviate confusion-- but I'm also a 7.5D (AE/Alden/CJ for RL/EG/Grenson for Paul Stuart) but definitely at 7 in the Alcudia. 6.5 was way too tight. I'm a 6.5 in the Rain.
From the Epaulet X Carmina MTO on the Rain Last. These run a little narrower than the Inca last that I already have unfortunately for me.
I'm a college professor, so I don't have any workplace dress code, but I'll definitely wear them to class. The color is really subtle, so I think they'll work pretty well dressed up & w/ casual clothes.
Yeah, I emailed him before ordering to get his €.02. Fortunately, we don't live anywhere close to each other, so we won't both wear the same magic slippers to the ball.
