1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Epaulet x Carmina navy shell double monk. I've worn these around a half-dozen times and have decided that the Rain last doesn't work for me, which is unfortunate because I love these shoes. They are in really good shape, always treed and brushed after every wear. Some minor scuffs around the buckle from use.

    Size 9 UK
    Rain Last
    Original box and bags Included
    Shoe trees not included

    Out of curiosity, how much do these retail new? Just impressed by the pricing.

    Retail was $850, which is what I paid. I guess I should have put that in the original listing. I wasn't in a rush to drop the price, but I'm certainly open to offers.

    Selling because 1. They have never really felt right, despite having other Carminas in the same size. 2. I'll be putting the money towards my cross country bike ride this spring (details in my sig).

    FYI - my Carmina shell balmoral boots cost just less than $650 new.

    I'm not even sure what "shitting up threads" is. (1) I love the shoes and (2) IMO, the price was way too high. Of course the market will set the price. As you can see it is doing just that.

    I could have been more clear about the point I was making IMO - but it was truly an off-the-cuff comment. You may choose to reply yet again, but I'll have no further reply to you my friend.

    I assume this is directed at me (apart from "nice shoes"). Skoat. With this email we've moved on from Stavros' and my comments about pricing relative to the shoes being offered. We also made a side trip as the result of Porter's comment to my week old comment, my reply, and then his unnecessary reply (with apology yet). I suggest we move further discussion about anything unrelated to ReedCA's ad to the Carmina appreciation thread and please no more posts about the "appropriateness" of any this. Just let the man sell his shoes. Capiche?

    Hey everyone -- Sorry, I've been away from the computer most of the day, but following along with the commentary. Re: pricing - as stated, I paid $850. I love these shoes, just wish they fit me better. That, combined with trying to minimize my loss is how I came upon the starting price. I agree, issues/recommendations regarding pricing are best handled via PM. That said, no hard feeling towards anyone.

    @moralman - Thank you. If you happened to be asking about these shoes, they are from Epaulet.

    As far as I can tell, none of the Carmina retailers are currently stocking a navy shell double monk, so if someone is interested, here they are. I will consider any serious offer.
