    Kev is on the deal simply because he is in the market for a pair of Double Monks maybe from Carmina pure and simple. Is he selling Carmina shoes ? why dont you just ask me instead of being a prick? The answer would be, yet again, a simple no. I dont have any horse in any race. So why dont you actually add something to the discussion, just remember your among the grown ups.

    Kev, where I come from grown ups don't call each other 'pricks'

    That leads me to conclude that we are from different places, which is fine as it takes all kinds- you know upstairs and downstairs kinda of thing.

    As for adding to the discussion on Carmina's merits I am afraid it is not possible as there is none. It is clear this is simply a marketing exercise, in which you seem to be participating –either as a naïve bystander (which I doubt) or as a commercially interested party.

    I mean for god sakes a ‘player’ like you just happens to be infected with the Carmina influenza at the same time there is such a push??

    For each Carmina that just got a website working there are tens of much better 'unknown' shoe makers across Italy alone.And even then we know that from time to time we get the occasional chancer from Italy coming over and posting their newest and greatest handmade shoes

    Oh God gives us Carminas

    Well If

    1-you would put them above C&J handgrade-personally nonetheless-
    2- The armoury (whatever that may be) sells them

    it is case closed. These things are the best RTW shoe available over the internet

    Lets not forget Spoo and the Balearic connection :slayer:

    +1, may be one of the worst posters as of late, and clogging up a thread dedicated to a really great brand of shoes.
