1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Hi PapaRubbery,

    Thank you for your kind words :)
    I suggest you do not size down half but stick with the same 6 UK for both Inca and Rain.
    Let me know if you have any other questions & cheers!

    Order placed. Many thanks.

    BTW, would you consider stocking in UK 5.0 as well?

    Hey Steve,

    I noticed that most of your offerings are on the Rain last; does that mean most people have higher insteps?

    Hmm, Not quite sure to be honest. Maybe others can chime in on this?
    I think it all depends on the individual's tolerance level too. I have a high instep and even Rain are not high enough for me at first (tho the cork at the bottom do sink in a little after few months of wear) A close buddy of mine has a really low instep but doesn't mind the high instep on Rain (plus he wears his shoes half size too big in my humble opinion but again, personal preference [​IMG])

    Those loafers are breaking my heart.....I know I shouldve ordered one for myself. Looking good Justin![​IMG]

    Thank you sir! Possibly in the future :) We can always order them for you in 5 UK for our MTOs and pre-orders.
    We will have December Pre-order & MTO announcement in few weeks!

    indeed....I regret so much not participating on that mto myself [​IMG]
    Carmina duplicated the MTO orders so we have few left in stock on our webstore!
    Oh Sorry I didnt clarify, the picture was just to show the 'Rusti Green Calf' as some members requested....for future MTO plans just in case.
    Those loafers arent for us :(

    Just a quick announcement for those who are waiting for the MTOs from 3 month back (brown calf/loden boots, navy shell tanker boots, cognac shell longwing, noix suede chukka, & few more) I believe they have arrived here in the US during the thanksgiving weekend and I have already contacted my customs airport agent to process their release! I will post updates here as soon as I hear back!

    Steve I know shell jodphurs arent possible due to shell cracking but what about leather? Is it possible to come up with a cool leather/suede combo. Leather boot and suede strap? I think it could be a really cool boot

    I definitely think thats a great option. What about a reddish/orange. Super versatile boot for jeans, chinos, cords, etc

    Too bad we live in s 3rd world country...
    However, I checked Carmina-s online offering here http://www.carmina.telemaco.es/familia.asp?idfamilia=12124342 and there is no sign of the awesome green loafers; most likely they are a special order for one of their distributors, have to find out who that is.

    Great looking shoe. I would go for that if it could be offered on a last that has a wide fitting or one of the wide fitting lasts.

    which last is that? don't think i've ever seen that model before, except maybe in their formal stuff.

    suede looks really nice as well, is it snuff?
