i think the big reveal is thursday?
I think this is right. The shell dubs are obviously nice, but my favorite were, unexpectedly, the chelsea boots. Amazing color and last. Mike also told me that the calf skin used is sourced from the same place in France that Vass and EG use. Very cool.
any wide widths expected in these?
I'd gladly pay that if I knew they were going to do a good job. Here, I always have the fear that something's going to get screwed up...
I got to see the Carmina collection in person this past Saturday. Very impressive. My favorites are the shell shortwings, but I am holding out for the same shoe in a caramel calfskin with black contrast stitching if Mike makes that happen. Each shoe has a great color. There is enough variety to satisfy anyone's shoe needs.
Always nice to get a personal tour from Mike. I got to meet Matt this time, though I missed Adele. Almost makes me wish I still lived in NY instead of SF.
Mike, sent you a PM about some shipping questions. Thanks!
Newest pickup...these shipped out yesterday and arrived on my doorstep this afternoon. I was worried they might be too wide, but I'm very pleased that they fit perfectly. My Indys in size 12C feel wider than these Barrie-lasted boots in 12D. So glad I didn't wait and picked these up before they were gone! *click thumbnails to enlarge pics*
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Just a little teaser....
Oh man, good question. They're definitely my two favorites of the season. The Olive Gunchecks are really sharp, but that Navy Marl is softer than buttah...
No, the current chinos could be taken in, but there's no cloth to let out. You can do that on the Walt & Rudy trousers.
Seconded - the Pale Grape is an amazing color. You'll really dig it.
Thank you! Really glad that you're pleased with them!
If I've learned one lesson with people that make, alter, and work with clothing is that they can often be bribed with dounts. Really. Try bringing in a small box of Munchkins and see what that gets you.
Nice, thanks for picking them up guys!
The fit is killer, I really like this!
Very nice. Glad that you didn't sell that watch - the Explorer is a keeper.
Oh man, come to the Lower East Side. Try $4 for a hem and a 15 to 60 minute wait. It's New York's paradise of alterations!
Yup, we're planning to launch Carmina on Thursday in the late afternoon. I'll post everything up here once they go online.
Glad that you like them - I've got a serious weakness for those Chelsea boots too. It's not a style that you see too often around here, but IMO it should be. A well-executed Chelsea boot is really versatile and hard to find. The Carmina model is one of the best I've ever seen.
Not for this first run, but we should be able to offer that next year in select styles.
Thanks Scott - it was great seeing you as well!
Rock and roll, thanks for picking them up! These are far and away my favorite boots now, I've been wearing mine a few days a week.
Update for this Week
Hey guys, we've got a bunch of stuff going down this week. Here's what's coming:
Carmina Launch on Thursday Afternoon: Six gorgeous styles.
Epaulet Scottish Cardigans: Slim-fit classic cardigans in gorgeous marled shetland lambswool. Made in Scotland and way the hell off the hook. Just came in today.
The LONG-AWAITED Rivet Chino "Service Pant." Same fit as always, but tweaked with a single cargo pocket on the side and flap pockets on the back.
Smith & Hoyt denim clearance. All pairs will be $95, the stock will go online Friday afternoon. I'll give you a more specific time when we get through the inventory on Thursday.
I've got a bunch of PM's to catch up on tomorrow. Please bear with me, I haven't forgotten you guys.
And for a little Carmina preview, may I introduce the Saddle Shell Cordovan Double Monk. Oh mein gott:
Aww I hate living in the Midwest, can't enjoy the super fast one day shipping from Epaulet
And I thought I was the only Purdue student on here...
Looking forward to the Carmina stuff and the cardigans.
When do you expect to have the Epaulet Scottish Cardigans online?
What colors are available?
stoked that an oxblood cord finally popped up in my size (m) on buy and sell. Copped with all swiftness.
Next, re-up on copping power and re-up on rivet chinos.
