1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    My pre-teen boy calls my phone a not-so-smart-phone. These mini-computers we have access to at all times are amazing, but they also can be maddening - as my post showed. I tend to agree with my boy.

    I'd be more than happy to revive the Rain Last 2 Eyelet Derby in Saddle Shell (I think I have 2 interested at this point)

    [​IMG]

    Also the Detroit Last PTB Blucher in Saddle Shell (2 interests as well)
    [​IMG]

    Btw, currently there is a shell shortage so these shell order will take longer than Carmina's usual 2-3 month lead time.
    Hope you gents have a great day!

    My preference is for the PTB, but if that's not possible, I might go for the 2 eyelet derby instead.

    other than the two shell MTOs proposed above, here are the updates for Loafer MTOs :)

    1. Loden (Dark Green) Suede Full Strap Penny - Uetam Last (5 interests so far, most likely good to go)

    Good evening (or good morning to Asia & Australia) gents!

    Aside from our current 4 MTOs mentioned above
    (getting some good traction so far; Dark Green is good to go, Uetam Snuff loafers and the 2 eyelet saddle shell Derby looking good with 4 interests, PTB is still at 2).
    this is just a quick interest check; as few folks have been contacting me for the following two models :)

    1. jodhpur boots in Navy CALF (picture below is shell but as many of you may already know, no longer an option for this type of boots sadly)

    [​IMG]

    2. dark brown suede double monk in simpson last

    [​IMG]

    have a great Friday & weekend!

    Damn that looks awesome. Would I take the same size due to difference in material? I know suede stretches like a mofo while shell doesnt stretch much. Maybe i should take this to a PM...

    I've got 4 Uetam loafers

    Two suede in 10, one suede in 10.5 and one shell in 10. I'm kind of right in between the sizes. The 10.5 starts with heel slippage and the 10 starts off a little tight. But when I go from the Shell 10 to the Suede 10, it feels like the shoe is a little less tight, but not by much.

    If you have no heel slippage or it's not too tight, I'd say get the same size. But Steve knows more than I do.

    I wish I could afford the loden suede, but I have zero idea when I'd wear it and it's the worst time for me to buy anything. The plain loafer also looks fantastic, but I've already got four dang loafers.

    Justin - next venture, get string loafers. They look AWESOME with jeans.

    Just wanted to mention some ridiculously good service from Steve yesterday - was going down to SD for the weekend and wanted to get my uetam last sizing down. Steve met up with me on the way down with a few sizes to try on and also gave some great dining recommendations

    Loden full strap is gonna be fire
