    Quick question regarding Carmina lasted trees.


    Are they whole sizes only?

    My MTO blue shell austerity oxford came with a whole size pair of lasted trees, even though the shoes themselves are 1/2 size larger.

    Get out of my head, sir. You're stealing all of my ideas.

    I hope I stop running out of ideas. Last year I thought Allen Edmonds was the pinnacle of shoes. This year I've already gotten EGs, C&Js and Carmina Bal Boots from Skoaktiebolaget and I'm in on the Navy Adelaide and Bal Austerity Brouge Boot.

    Other members warned me when I joined SF ...

    Mike,

    For the Navy Adelaide... would it be possible to commission navy calfskin Belts from Carmina to go along with the preorder?

    Thanks

    We'll definitely offer some calf options. I think that burgundy would be really boss.


    Yes, they only run in whole sizes. When customers order a half size shoe, we ship the trees that are a half size down.


    Yes and no. At the moment, Carmina doesn't offer navy leather belts.

    BUT - we've had a ton of demand for matching belts. In the next three weeks or so, I'm going to launch an in-house, made in USA collection of dress belts. They're going to jive perfectly with our carmina calfskin offerings and retail at $85. We'll definitely have a navy belt. It's tough to say if it will be an exact match, but it will surely be close. The belts are really solid, and you'll be able to opt for either gold tone or silver tone buckles.

    Apologies for the delay on that - it took a little bit, but we filled all of the slots and the Suede/Calf Jodphur is going into work. Thanks!

    Amazing!!

    Count me in for the navy bal on the Alcudia last!!!

    As long as it's not a contrasting edging....needs to be dark.

    Thanks!

    ^ For the navy bal, it seems like a matching/dark edge would be best.

    However! A burgundy or dark green calf version seems like a natural fit for a lighter/antiqued/brown edgetrim...

    Dark green calf, anyone?
