    I would love to see how this would look. Are we talking Alden indy brown chromexcel color? What last would it best suit? I don't know much about the various Carmina lasts but I'd imagine a very slim, sleek last would kill in that makeup.

    Yes, it's the same dark brown as the Indy 403 boot and the Wolverine 1000 mile. We could do it in any last, really. Robert might be a nice one. If we stick with Forest then we can offer it in wides as well.

    And hey guys, our makeups are ending tonight for preorder. Here's the lineup again:

    [​IMG]
    Special Order Black Scotchgrain Bal Boot DEPOSIT

    [​IMG]
    Special Order Calf and Suede Bal Boot DEPOSIT

    [​IMG]
    Special Order Cognac Python Cordovan Austerity Brogue DEPOSIT

    Midnight's rolling up soon, but I'll deactivate them in the morning so I can collate everything and submit it to Carmina tomorrow. So if the items are still online, then we're still accepting orders on them.

    Thanks to everyone who ordered! Can't wait to see how they come out!

    Just put in my order for a UK9.5 Python ! Did some searching and they say that the last is comparable to the 337 of C&J so I went with my usual 337 last size.

    Was thinking of going 10UK just in case , but that might be a bit long already. Hopefully everything works out :nodding:

    By the way, would it be possible to have toe-taps pre-installed ? Thanks !

    For some reason I thought the orders ended Monday night at midnight. I went to make my order yesterday (Sunday) but my paypal account had a hold on it for security reasons. I had to reset my password and change my security questions. I didn't get that done until this morning and then when I went to pay my deposit the boots were gone. I hope I can jump on the bandwagon here at the last minute.

    Not quite, but soon. Carmina's finishing up the order as we speak, and it will probably take about two weeks for shipping and customs. I'll post up everything here as soon as it arrives.

    We should be good on all of the listed styles except the Sinclair in Cognac shell. We used all of the available Cognac for that awesome Bal Boot MTO project, so that's been pushed out until 9/15. And the loafers will be a handsewn in Snuff Suede and a Goodyear Welted model in Caramel calf.


    Thank you sir! Unfortunately we can't put toe-taps onto it, but we can forward it to B.Nelson for you. We've done that for customers in the past. We send B.Nelson the shoes, you pay them for the modification, and they ship them out to you after it's done. It's pretty easy, and they do great work.

    I am so freaking excited about the Python. I think that it's a really unique material, and it makes up beautifully as a shoe. In Mallorca we actually met with the python supplier and there are TONS of colors available. The skins are dyed and colored by hand in Italy, so it's relatively easy to get them and there's a huge range of possibilities. How boss would a navy python balmoral captoe be for Spring?

    Oh man, I'm sorry, you are 100% correct. They were set to end tonight rather than yesterday - that was my mistake.

    Everything is reactivated and should be back on the site shortly. And I'll check in all day, but if anyone wants to order and needs a size or width added, then let me know. We'll absolutely get you onto the preorder.

    YES. Was half-and-half on the austerity and burgundy colour. Still wanted it, but funds limited ATM. But, a python navy captoe I'd be all over!

    Sinclair boot in Ruby would be nice but I have my heart set on that wingtip. I'm about to sell some more Aldens to fund this new Carmina addiction.

    I would prefer it on the bal boot, but I would definitely be all over a ruby Sinclair, too. That's a one-of-a-kind shoe, right there.
