    I don't follow. They can't do it so there's nothing to fight for...

    Come join us!
    I am confident the Loden wing tip is going to be brilliant even without a red danite sole[​IMG]

    Thanks for the pic of the loden shell Steve. Looks better in those images that Carmina's product shot.

    Steve has suggested a Dark Cognac would be similar to Cigar

    Steve, is the tobacco suede austerity brogue order submitted or will it remain open til a certain date? Once submitted, how consistent has Carmina been for delivery time?

    thanks for the quick response, but I guess I was wondering expected completion time from submitting the order. Has it been closer to 12 weeks or 16 (if they have the leather)?

    Ah i see. Theyve been pretty consistant 12 weeks in my experience. Now the shipping and custom clearance (with us gov closure last year) delay is another matter which can take a week or sometime 3

    Steve super excited about the loden chukka and saddle frankenstitch!! Lets lock them down!!!

    Member2000r- It just seems like a lot going on man in that color. I think if it was a simple style shoe it might work such as a PTB or a captoe. If you wanted to do a wingtip I would definitely utilize a dark brown or cognac shell. It would be a much smarter shoe in that case. I tried to get traction on a Shortwing Blucher and I got a few people interested but it didnt pan out. Definitely reconsider what you want and what would be better.

    Thank you justin.

    Yes your opinion is more safety but I want to have a more playful one at this moment, I have got a lot of relatively safe shoe in dark colour. However, for those who want to have a versatile one should follow you.

    Believe me I have enough playful shoes than any person could need. I do continue to buy them but I know what will be more practical here. I would wish you the best of luck to find 5 more people interested.
