    Do you not like wholecuts? They qualify as plain-toe balmorals, albeit without any stitching except the back seam. I own a pair that i wear as semi-formal shoes (i.e. with a tuxedo).

    Yeah, wholecuts oddly enough are much easier to find. I have no problem with them, they just aren't the traditional oxford I was looking for. Although, I must admit, those particular Vass are pretty tempting.


    I will look into this, but it looks awful pointy based on photos.

    Has anyone heard about the most recent Carmina delivery? I thought the revised date was earlier this week, but I've yet to see a post or photos.

    We are just as eager as you guys! Got word that it's HOPEFULLY landing tomorrow. We'll certainly be as fast as possible in invoicing/shipping!

    NewYorkRanger pretty much hit the nail on the head. Mike has been insanely backed up since the launch of EpauletNewYork.


    If anyone has an urgent concern, give one of the shops a call. We'll help you out any way that we can. If it isn't urgent, feel free to drop me a PM and I'll get it taken care of with a quickness!

    That is simply a really fine looking shoe, ruby shell aside. Carmina and Epaulet are crushing it.

    Hey guys!

    Just finished up the photoshoot, I'll try to get some shots to you tonight. The new shoes are freaking insanely nice. Ruby shell came out perfect, the Pythons are BONKERS, and everything else is ace.

    I'm working with Carmina right now to try and get one last shipment sent this week - I know that we're running late on the Navy calfskin and shell pieces. I'll be in touch with every update that I get from them.

    If I've learned one thing from this last delivery it's that we need to make a LOT more in Python and Ruby Shell. Both of these really blew me away.

    And for the record, I am kicking myself in the ass something terrible for not ordering a pair of BOTH of these shoes. You guys are going to love them!

    omg, these came out amazing! thanks for the pics mike! the python brogues look super boss and the ruby captoes will be a great addition to my work shoe rotation. that ruby shell color is really awesome. i'm not sure if i should rock the pythons at the office...someone might think i'm a triad. lol

    i'm glad i ordered both. :slayer:
