    mike - are the python austerity brogues going up for pre-order soon? do you know how the rain last fits compared to the robert last? i have a captoe oxford in the robert last and they fit pretty well. i was thinking of getting the same size (uk7).

    the caramel wholecut sounds pretty sweet, i might be in on that as well. is the caramel color similar to cognac? these look amazing: http://www.carmina.telemaco.es/articulo.asp?idarticulo=3640209

    please keep the next set of carmina pre-orders up past july 9th. i'll be backpacking next week in jasper/banff with limited internet access until the 8th. :)

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for your patience, I built out the other three styles last night. Everything is now available for preorder! Here's the links below: The new styles are open until 7/16.

    The pricing came out pretty good too - it's going to be $685 for the two non-shell bal boots and $750 for the Python brogues. Carmina shoe trees are included.

    This is the exact boot that we'll be making

    Special Order Cognac Python Cordovan Austerity Brogue DEPOSIT
    These are going to be incredible! I can't tell you guys how excited I am for them. They'll be the mens version of Betty's Python brogues, in the cognac brown colorway. Good lord.

    And here are the two Navy Shell preorders which are up until 7/9.

    Please shoot me any questions if you have them. The Rain last is pretty similar to the Forest and the Robert, so most guys will get a great fit by ordering the same size.

    Mike, not sure if it is just me, but when I try to order the suede/calf bal boot, the checkout screen shows a total payment due of $500. But the deposit is only $350. Maybe there is a mistake on the back end. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

    Nope. It's not just you. I had the same issue.

    I just figured it out. It has to do with the sizes. When I added US 10.5 (My size) It's $500, but when I added US 9, the price was $350.

    ^^ Ah, sorry guys, that's my fault. I copied the shell bal boot item (which was $500) and it looks like I neglected to update the price on a few individual size variants. I'll check it over and get it fixed tonight. If anyone overpaid on a deposit, we'll refund the difference back to your account.

    In for the pebble grain boots, but if there aren't enough takers and the calf/suede boots are a go, I will gladly switch.

    Any update on a revised Sinclair boot for the fall? I don't see it listed on the preorder page. Thanks.

    Okay guys, pricing issue should be fixed.

    If you have any other problems or you need a wide size added onto the breakdown, please just drop Matt a PM at leftofthedial and he'll hook it up for you.


    Thank you, we'll note this. I'm pretty sure that we'll be good to go on both of them though - we've taken quite a few orders already.


    At the moment we have the Sinclair in-bound for Sept 15th in Cognac Shell. There's no preorder needed - it's going to be a normal production piece for us. After I get back to the States next week I'm going to hash out the details of the Styleforum Sinclair project and get it online ASAP.

    I'm thinking of getting both boots. I have a question about the Forest Last. I have shoes in the Inca and Rain Last, should I just get the same size for the boots in the Forest Last? Do I need to size down a half size and go Wide?

    I have the wingtip boot on the Forest last as well and a pair of double monks on the Inca and they are both the same size.

    Yes, going for the same size would be the scenario for most of our customers. The Inca is one of the widest lasts that Carmina uses, but if you can fit the Robert comfortably, then the Forest should be right-on in the same size.
