+1. Don't know what a York sole is though.
Some great ideas for the dover style shoe, especially the dark brown cordovan and willow calf.
New to this thread though certainly not to epaulet. I am a huge fan of the Dover and recently saw the EG Halifax boot which is basically the Dover in boot form. Thought it was killer in ginger suede. Pic is attached. Are people here all booted out or is there interest in something like that?
You are new to this thread!
The ruby shell is gorgeous. Mike, do you plan on doing another run of ruby?
I like this idea, a lot.
I imagine that most of you have seen this already, but here's the full lineup of Carmina's that we received - all posted below.
For another bit of good news - we've got another massive shipment en-route from Spain as we speak. It flew last Friday, and I see a bunch of navy - both calfskin and shell cordovan - on the manifest. We're going to fight like hell to get it here before Christmas, but if we miss that date, then we'll definitely get it between Christmas and New Years.
Onto the nu shooz!
Bradbury Perforated Captoe Boot Ruby Shell Cordovan: $895
Radiant Ruby shell in a dressy captoe boot.
Rand Single Monk Cognac Shell Cordovan: $825
This is an excluisve makeup for us - we spec'd this awesome single monk on the comfortable Rain last.
Steinbeck Shortwing Boot Burgundy Shell Cordovan: $895
Our tough wingtip boot in gorgeous burg shell.
Alt Wien Semi-Brogue Captoe Brown Chromexcel: $525
We just freaking love the Alt Wien shape. We made this one for our friends facing harsh weather this season. Water-resistant chromexcel on the combo York sole.
Sinclair Shortwing Boot Saddle Shell Cordovan & Scotchgrain: $895
This was our made-to-order makeup, and Carmina cut an additional 3 pairs. We've got one 8UK, and two 8.5UK's.
Carmina Formal Shoes
Another quick note. Carmina over-produced two styles of patent leather shoes for a formalwear client. I told them that I help them to move out the extra inventory. With New Year's Eve around the corner, I figured that the timing was right .
We've got sizes UK7 thorugh UK9.5, just one unit per size. Both shoes are priced at $395, final sale:
Black Patent Leather 2-eye Derby (RAIN LAST): $395
Black Patent Leather Slip-On (SIMPSON LAST): $395
Any chance these boots will be ordered again? I would love them in a wide.
+1 but in calf...for those of us that can't afford shell
Definitely want to do these in calf. I think they would look good in something like ginger suede (similar to the picture) but I would also be interested in some sort of chestnut colored pebble grain calf. Mike, do you think Carmina could do a boot in this style? Glad there is some interest!
Darn. These and that price will MOVE.
Would anyone like to do a plain toe shoe of some kind in Ruby Red?
Slip on is really nice.
