    Detroit last. Ordered through Steve of Gentlemen's Footwear. They really are an amazing pair - really glad with how they turned out!

    It's worth noting that Skoaktiebolaget, another Carmina stockist, has some cognac shell PTBs on the Detroit last in stock at present:

    excuse the possible redundancy in this question, as I'm new to this thread lol

    Does Carmina offer a brown shell SW boot? Normally an Alden guy, but looking to stretch out a bit where needed.

    thanks in advance!

    In the past, Carmina have offered quite a few different boots, including some shortwing boots, as "group made to order" (GMTO) shoes through various vendors including Gentlemen's Footwear, Skoaktiebolaget and Epaulet NY and probably others. I'm not sure if any such GMTOs are in progress at present.

    Carmina also has its own webstore where you can order shoes and there's one shortwing boot in the store at present:

    I've tried both of them on recently and the Ellison is definitely darker. Here's a side by side comparison pic in similar lighting conditions.
