    mike - any update on the navy python swatch? what last were you thinking for this project? i was hoping for robert as i prefer that last over the forest. rain might work as well as i've heard rain is slightly slimmer than robert. hopefully the cognac pythons come in with the next carmina shipment. :D

    mike - how does the alcudia last fit compared to the robert? i found the forest last to be a bit wider than the robert. if alcudia is closer to rain, would that make it slimmer than forest?

    Mike, some questions regarding the midnight Steinbeck wingtips; what color will the edge trim be? did you specify brown edge trim like the sinclair boot, or a dark color as seen here [​IMG]
    also, does this picture accurately represent the color of midnight calf leather?

    Row two, second from right. Is that the ruby shell punched captoe?

    Another option that would be amazing besides the punched captoe for ruby, particularly if we want to be unique and not make a make-up that has been done before, would be the split toe laceup, Row 1, second from right.

    Love the chukka. (top row, second from left). Is that the Simpson lasted chukka on the Carmina site?

    Hey guys, here's a big update from my side:

    1. The Inca Last Caramel Medallion Wholecut is up for preorder now:
    [​IMG]
    Special Order Caramel Calf Medallion Wholecut DEPOSIT

    As always, please feel free to hit me off with any size questions. The Inca last is a very easy fit - it's the best-seller of our entire collection.

    2. Chocolate Suede / Chocolate Calf Rain Last Jophur is also up:
    [​IMG]
    Special Order Chocolate Suede / Calf Jodphur Boot DEPOSIT

    3. Ruby Shell Perf Captoe: We're all good to go with this. I'm just waiting on an exact count of how many shoes we can offer - there's been a lot of interest in it, and I don't want to oversell the preorder if I can avoid it. I'm looking to put this up on Tuesday.

    Please note, these three lasts (Inca, Rain, Alcudia) are unfortunately not available in wide fittings, but we may be able to make them in a larger or smaller size than what's listed in the dropdown. I'll be happy to ask if anyone's interested.

    In terms of the Balmoral Austerity Brogue boot....
    [​IMG]

    That shape is insane! I absolutely love it!

    I spoke with Carmina, and they don't have anything like that in their lineup at the moment. But it is possible for us to commission it, as we did the Sinclair/Steinbeck. Realistically, there's not time enough to do that this year. So we'd have two options for going forward:

    FIRST - I'll be happy to work out that design with Carmina and look into an early Spring MTO. With sampling, we could probably look for a delivery in Feb-March of next year. Still plenty of season for boot wearing. Perhaps we do it in a calfskin or suede for maximum Spring wearability.

    SECOND - If you guys are open to doing a blucher Austerity rather than a balmoral, we could probably swing that this year. We'd essentially use the Sinclair shape and just remove all of the perforations from it.

    Whatcha think?
