    Do you still carry that tobacco suede austerity brogue? Is that by Carmina?

    the austerity brogue was a group MTO so steve doesn't stock it, he may have ordered some extra pairs for the store though

    Inca last is my favorite Carmina last. No other lasts fit better.

    How does Inca fit? Will it work for us wide feet, high instep dudes?

    This MTO was proposed as Sollar as I am looking for something a bit more rounded and casual for travel and knock around on weekends. Inca is more angular than I am looking for. I think we already have 4-5 interested so perhaps a separate GMTO for an Inca makeup?

    How is the Soller fit versus the Inca or Forest or Rain?

    As I proposed before, I'm up for an Inca (or Forest) Chelsea in dark brown suede and single Dainite sole. Anyone in?

    My latest MTO (# 5 or 6) from Steve. Forest last. Looks a bit darker in real life.

    Understandable Ryden! As long as Soller fits similar to Inca, I'm in. I think grey suede Chelsea will be very versatile boots to wear (thinking light (lamb/calf) black leather jacket and denim combo):nodding:

    Not 100% sure how it fits compared to Inca but hopefully Steve can chime in. Here is a good description of Soller

    The Carmina Soller is a wide fitting last, it is ideal for country style shoes and casual boots.

    How about burgundy suede? I do think grey suede is sweet. I am curious what others think of lining/elastic areas. (I think purple would rock)

    Chelsea is not avail in Oscar at this time unfortunately :(

    There was a navy suede string tie loafers pre-order & grey suede loafer MTO few months back...
    Unfortunately I dont have anything coming in your size :(

    It is indeed the Soller Last Tanker boots in Grey Suede
    (I have one pair avail in 5.5 UK at a clearance price if anyone is interested)

    [​IMG]

    we've also done the same Soller last tanker boots in navy shell before
    (second round navy shell tankers boots MTOs are arriving in few weeks for those who participated btw! [​IMG])

    Oh and I've seen those new NST from Carmina! I've asked about it and Betty says they are still working on the final sample.
    Most likely going to be done on Wide fitting Soller Last
