    Ruby red shell in this style [​IMG] would prefer plaintoe, 3 eyelet, Simpson last. Would also be open to the pictured model in ruby

    This sounds sick. I would definitely be down.

    WOW. I second this in ruby though wouldnt mind it kept as a wingtip. That would be a stunning makeup.

    I think I could be driven to kill for this.

    Agreed, this is an awesome suggestion! As nice as a plain toe would be, I can tell you that the wingtip would be STUNNING. You'd really see a patina form along the broguing in the front.

    I'll get word on how much Ruby we can get our hands on early next week, and let's put something together :slayer:

    Wingtip all the way baby!! With all these makeups you're putting together I think my wallet has now fully spiraled into a deep set depression.

    +1 on the wingtip. That would look brilliant in ruby!

    python brogues pre-ordered :slayer:

    i think the cognac python is going to be very wearable with rivets, walts, and raw denim. they might be too flashy for me to wear to work though.

    Aldens were my first introduction to shell cordovan and since then i've bought many pairs. With the discovery of Carmina i'm trying to figure out how to sell off some of my Aldens and start buying Carminas. I'll keep some Aldens as their boots (along with a few longings) are my go to casual wear.

    I think a ruby shell wingtip would be awesome!

    Would be a nice touch to ship the pythons with a (optional) pair of balls inside the box.

    duuuude, ruby wingtip is gonna be epic. a part of me doubts that Carmina will even have enough of this ultra-rare shell (rarest perhaps) but if they do, you need to hope on it, staaat!!

    Well, might as well go ahead and get started. How about either the wingtip NAMOR posted above (post 931) or the style pictured below in Ruby shell.
    Rain or Inca last is my vote although I prefer Inca for the extra toe room.
