    Dropped a quick and dirty navy color mask on that floating medallion bal. Not perfect, but might be a helpful mockup.

    Now that you mention it, I think I do too. The off white would make it more versatile I think.

    Would be a blunder if these don't get made... Look awesome

    I'm not sure that I'd order them either way, but the rams head medallion looks better.

    As someone who wears dressier clothes (work on wall st), and to keep the shoes more versatile, I feel that we shouldn't have brown edging, rather black/blue, something with a less of a contrast.

    100% agree. This shoe will look majestic with grey suits, navy suits, would even pop nice with browns or denim. I say we keep the medallion the same as it is on the above shoe.

    Well, an off white shoe is going to be a pretty Summer-ish style. So you'd be looking to match it with linens, cottons, lighter weight wools. It's a great match to navy, works with olive, tan, sandy tones. Windowpanes. Of course seersucker.

    White shoes are actually pretty versatile once they're in season. You can dandy it up like Tom Wolfe:

    Or you can wear it with denim, like Serge Gainsbourg. They look very good with lighter washes and faded denim.

    That looks great, thanks for mocking it up!


    Agreed, let's roll with this exactly as is. I'll build out the preorder tomorrow and we'll get it going :)


    Let me check our preorder number - I'll get back to you guys tomorrow.

    I'm in for a navy shell boot! It would also be nice to have in my rotation a python or croc boot..

    If that gets made up I'll probably end up with that same boot in two different mediums.

    Hey guys, here's everything from my side:

    1. Got a shipping confirmation from Carmina. And I've got some great news! A shipment will depart Monday-Tuesday with the following makeups:

    Balmoral Boot Black Scotchgrain
    Balmoral Boot Cognac Shell
    Balmoral Boot Chocolate Calf/Suede
    Python Austerity Brogue

    Hopefully we'll get them by next Friday - if not it will be right the in beginning of the following week. Can't wait to see how all of these made up!

    The only outstanding early makeup is the Navy Shell Double Monk. I've asked for status on that - I'll let you guys know as soon as I have word on it.

    2. I'll get that Alcudia-last Navy calfskin bal order going tomorrow. We're good to go on that with the leather.

    3. Balmoral Austerity boots makeups are going to be awesome. I'm waiting on word for Navy Shell. Now, if this was going to be delivered in Feb-March, would you guys still want some shell cordovan options for then? I might be able to wrangle some Ruby as well.

    I actually might die if I see a Ruby bal boot.
