    One does generally prefer the Mazerati over the Jaguar doesn't one?

    Odd, I don't see them here. Already sold out?

    Sorry to derail - if anyone has seen a nice looking seude dm in taupe/oatmeal/sand I'd like to know of it.

    After many months searching with little to show for it I was (reluctantly) considering the purchase of this one, but think it's a fail for me for three reasons: 1) I don't who or what run of the mill shop is; 2) except on boots I don't like dainite sole;

    and 3) the shape looks rather fat

    This Common Projects x Robert Geller one would have been kopped had the heel been higher and the sole wasn't rubber.

    Picked up a pair of Carmina in brown calf at the Barcelona store. Filadelphia last.

    It's already been mentioned, but might be worth waiting to see Epaulet's Carmina inventory which should post next week.

    Gorgeous. Is there anywhere to get these at less than ~$650?

    These were 295 euro, and theoretically I should have received the VAT back (filed for it at the airport, got the stamp from customs, mailed it in... never got refunded). So roughly $425 with bank fees on the transaction.

    I think that is the first pair of Carminas on the Filadelphia last which has been posted. Thanks

    Do you happen to have a picture, or access to one? I'd like to see them in suede.
