    Hmm, guess that we've got some confusion with suede names and with images taken in different light. Let's disregard the McNairy stuff completely for the moment, as that's an entirely different manufacturer and suede supplier.

    The three Carmina shots look to be the same color, which is kind of a pale olive. I'm not sure of Carmina's official name for this this. When I've discussed "Loden" with them, it refers to this true dark green suede. A similar color that we see from Alden. This is an actual Carmina shoe in "Loden"

    My photoshopped file is a bit darker to try and represent what it looks like in real life. This image above was shot in a trade show booth, under yellow CFL lights, so it becomes slightly washed out and lightened as a result. That's the photography nerd side of me. I try to get as close an approximation as possible to the real-life appearance of the shoe, but it's not an exact science.

    This is what I thought we were looking for, but I'll ask for the official name of that pale olive suede too. I can absolutely rework the makeup to offer it in that color if you guys prefer that. I'll shoot over an inquiry to Frank the Sheep as well who was coordinating this.

    I second the idea for the RUBY SHELL RAIN LAST PTB as well. Look forward to ordering a pair if offered in 9UK Wide fitting.

    Thanks for the update, really would prefer the color you mocked up but doesn't seem like the loden green is that green from waht I've seen

    Don´t know how you could miss the pics. This is the last boots that was delayed, the first ones came six weeks ago and there was maybe two pages with posts about how light the cognac shell came out.

    Anyway...here is a link to SkoAB own pics: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/news/carmina-made-order-boots

    My pair was sent today so hopefully i can wear them tomorrow :slayer:

    Well, the exact color of it is in that shortwing on the gum rubber sole that's pictured. In real light its a little more like the mockup, but in reality... the true color will be somewhere in between. But definitely darker and more green than that pale olive color of the other makeups.

    We're going to roll with the loden mockup as it stands - I've actually taken 5 preorders on it already so it's nearly made the cutoff. It's definitely going into production




    Absolutely, I'll put this up by tomorrow at the latest. We've got enough Ruby to make 8 pairs of shoes. Although please note, the Rain last doesn't come in a wide fitting - just the Forest does - so this one will be just mediums.

    MTO PROJECT ARRIVALS!

    I'm going to try and shoot some more artistic photos of these in the next day, but for the meantime, feast your eyes on the MTO styles that just arrived! We'll contact all the customers who ordered them shortly, and we'll work on getting all of these packed and shipped over the weekend:

    Chocolate Suede w/ Chocolate Strap Jodphur Boot.
    There's simply no stopping this one. Good lord it's beautiful.

    Ruby Balmoral Boot
    I can look at Ruby Shell Cordovan all day long. These are stunning.

    [​IMG]
    Grey Suede Steinbeck Wingtip Boot
    This was in the pipeline for a while, but it was worth the wait! The grey suede is awesome here.

    Midnight Calf Perforated Oxfords
    Good call on these! They came out great, and the black sole is a subtle touch

    The Jodhpurs are great, too. Far better than I expected, and I'm kicking myself for not getting them, but my god am I excited for those Ruby boots.

    They were ordered quite a while ago. The funny thing is both styles were up for a while because we were having a hard time getting 6 for both. They definitely made up amazingly.
