Interested to see how the wide Forest bal boots I ordered are going to fit. It that's my best fit, might order one of the CXL makeups when they restock. Good to know that this sounds like it will be a possibility. Love the Forest shape. This direct Epaulet line to Carmina could turn into a problem. I've exercised restraint so far, but I'm weak. Hmmm... also good to know. Was considering buying the 10oz Rivets in plum, but perhaps I will now wait to see what these cords look like. And can't wait for these first special order trousers to start coming in.
