    someone here had asked a question about the thickness of carmina rubber dainite versus the actual Dainite outsole. Carmina has a significantly thinner profile

    I'm a huge monk fan, so I am pulling for a single buckle monk as an upcoming makeup.

    Has there been any discussion of a midnight calf double monk on the Rain last?

    Although I don't own any Carmina shoes (yet) and usually post in MC, I've been lurking on this thread for a long time because I love the ideas being kicked around. I love shell cordovan and, although I've been looking for a cordovan (ruby) austerity brogue for a long time (no one offers one as part of their mainline and IMO, an austerity brogue is the perfect shoe to show off shell cordovan), I'll probably go for the punched captoe.

    Just to prime the pump for the next special order, I'm also looking for a snuff suede monkstrap or double monk, an austerity brogue in some shade of cordovan (and ideally shell cordovan), and the right winter boots (with some type of Dainite sole), so I'm going to continue lurking and maybe posting occasionally.

    Ummm, how long have you been lurking? There's been a snuff suede double monk (still some stock left on Epaulet's web shop) and several winter boots.. with some sort of dainite sole.

    And a snuff suede austerity brogue.

    Oh, I searched the Epaulet and Armory websites some time ago, but for a long time I was reluctant to order Carmina without trying them on. Now I'm close enough to DC (and NYC) that I could make a short trip if I wanted to get my sizing exact. Unfortunately, Epaulet is now out of my size in the suede double monks, so I'm waiting for a re-stock.

    When I say "winter boots", I actually mean some sort of ankle boots like chukka boots with a Dainite sole and storm welt. I have a pair of C&J Tetburys that I really like, but I can't wear them every day in the winter, I would really prefer a more rounded toe than the Tetburys, and I would like a pair in cordovan (color and perhaps shell cordovan material). I also realize that I missed the original suede austerity brogues in this thread, darn it. They look really sweet!

    ^ Indeed, I'm also interested if we're going to go ahead with this, like the below boot but in black and /w speedhooks

    That was me, thanks for posting a pic NAMOR, the Carmina is definitely visibly thinner.

    That's pretty much why I was thinking no speedhooks/all eyelets.

    A makeup that nice would be copped with or without speed hooks. Would love a Dainite sole too, especially considering how thin it is when looking at NAMOR's navy shell boots. Sounds like we have a lot of people on board...Mike can we move forward with this?
