Yeah, I forgot what the sample was like
I know I keep bringing up the dark green shell, never seems to get going...if not a PTB, how about a LWB? Like a galosh kinda shoe that LS just did with Trickers in Navy Shell? That'd be a cool Spring/Late Winter release.
I also think the Jumper in Navy Suede would be SIIICCCKKK, maybe have it with metal eyelets all the way instead of the speedhooks?
Mike, does that mean that anyone affected by the Cognac Shell boot shortage has been contacted and you've received a response back from them? I'm still not certain if I'm affected by this or not.
BTW, the purple lining on the black scotchgrain boot is a very nice touch.
This. Please. With shiny brass hardware. I think Mike might have had ideas about this previously.
BTW Mike's said before that the extended shaft boots are high enough that not having speed hooks would be a pain. Still, it would look baller.
YES YES YES YES
Ah ha! Mirabile visu. Looking around I think the cognac scotch grain used for the plug in the the SF x Epaulet x Carmina Steinbeck makeup below is what I have in mind for the toe, the heel counter and the lacing area:
Remainder burgundy shell.
Mr. Chorizo, which direction do you prefer here? As indicated just above in this comment, I think I've come around to the second.
Hopefully this gets us in for at least a mockup from Mike...
while i think a two-tone woud look good, I'm more in favor of a more tonal make up that uses similar colors in different fabrications.
are there any two-tone carminas (this pattern or not) that you can reference?
So, for example, burgundy shell and burgundy or dark brown scotch grain?
no wides in this last, right?
Assume it will be on the Forest last again, and that is the one last for which you can indeed order a wide fitting.
Any idea on when the ruby boot order will be turned in?
If the delivery looks like it might slip to spring I may get a different boot that is already available.
Noob question-What was the price of the black scotch?
Saw this was still sitting here with no answer: http://www.styleforum.net/t/277505/epaulet-x-carmina-mto/870#post_5562095
Waiting to pounce as soon as you put those remake pre-orders up!
Also curious to hear if you got the Austerity sample in the mail this week as you expected.
Apologies that I've been AWOL on the thread this week - I'm finally catching up with everything on here. Big thanks to everyone who PM'd me to order wides, I'm wrapping up the orders in the next day and I'll shoot out any invoices that I owe you guys tomorrow. Once again, we're going to reorder the following styles, all of which are available in wide fittings:
Balmoral Boot Cognac Shell Cordovan
Balmoral Boot Black Scotchgrain
Fitzgerald Shortwing Cognac Shell Cordovan
Alt Wien Caramel Calfskin
Anderson Jump Boot Cognac Shell Cordovan
Also, we've got another 100+ unit delivery from Carmina en-route already. I should get the shipping papers shortly and we'll see what's in there. If I'm lucky with customs, I'll get it on Wednesday and then I can shoot and build everything on Friday. If customs drags its heels, then Thanksgiving will push it out until early next week. Either way it's going to be soon! I'll let you guys know what's inside as soon as I know.
Love your ideas for this, I'll bust out some mockups tomorrow and let's see if we can get something rolling!
The Ruby Boot order was already submitted, but we'll most likely be looking at a late Jan, mid Feb delivery for this.
It's $695 with shoe trees included
Hoping that the Austerity boot sample is in with our incoming shipment. And if you're interested in any of the remakes, please drop me a PM. Thanks!
