    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks for the update as I didn't get the email. So I'm looking at around New Year. That will be a pretty nice way to bring in the new year.

    Initially I paid a deposit of $335 because I ordered a pair of Carmina Shoe Trees to go with the Carmina Chukka Boot in Snuff Suede. I was wondering if you could tell me if these came with the shoes? I already paid the $310.00 your site allowed, however I believe I owe an additional $25 if the Carmina shoe trees arrived as well. If they didn't I vaguely remember an option to get your shoe trees?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    I just picked up my snuff suede chukkas and the Carmina shoe trees came with them. The initial deposit I believe covered the upcharge.

    The snuff suede chukkas, by the way, are incredible. Soller last is a great shape for them. Props to James on that idea.

    Crappy indoor iPhone photos you say? Sure!

    This is before I apply the initial coat of Saphir Invulner, which darkens the suede slightly.

    But I really can't be happier with these shoes. Carmina suede is such an incredible leather, and I'm a fan of the makeup -- maybe obviously, considering I was the person who initially suggested it!

    Those are outstanding. I'm not a huge chukka fan - the usual makes are just too clunky for my taste. Those are very elegant and beautiful boots.

    Carmina Group Buy Pics

    Hey guys!

    I've come bearing pics of the latest group buys! Here are the styles that were delivered (not including the Suede Chukka which Applky posted up):

    Hatch Grain Chukka
    [​IMG]

    Loden Shell Cordovan Alt Wien
    [​IMG]

    Navy Shell Cordovan Jumper Boot
    [​IMG]

    If you didn't receive the email with the link, then here's where you can pay your open balance:
    http://epauletnewyork.com/products/carmina-mto-december-balance

    The guys already processed all of these units and added shoe trees, so nearly all of them will be ready to ship on Tuesday if they haven't shipped already.

    We've working with Carmina to get another delivery within the next four weeks which should complete all of the preorder styles that we have outstanding. We'll be in touch on that once we have a harder delivery date. If it doesn't make it in before Christmas, then it should be right afterwards.

    Individual Customer MTO Images

    We received a few individual MTO's which were made for specific customers as well. These were my three favorites...

    Alt Wien Boot in Brown Chromexcel
    [​IMG]
    This is done on the Forest Last with a commando sole. It made up really cool and rugged as hell. Took a long time because they had to rework the boot pattern to do it, but we could make another round of these pretty quickly now, and Chromexcel is one of the less expensive skins that they offer, so the price would be really solid.

    Navy Shell Balmoral Boots
    [​IMG]
    Love the bright eyes on these

    Grey Suede Chukkas
    [​IMG]
    Made for Styleforum's own LA Guy. They're on a natural crepe sole and have a medallion on the toe. It's a rad take on the Carmina chukka, and a much more direction design than what we usually see

    The grey suede is pretty sick.

    The balmoral boots are awesome, as are the suede chukkas.

    Looking good, you did a marvelous job.

    I can't wait to receive mine.


    Also, thanks for the reply in regards to the shoe trees by the way.

    Cheers,

    Love the grey suede chukka! Would love something similar for myself (sans medallion)

    Anyone interested in that Alt Wein boot in natural CXL??
