    (Assuming) Sept 1st at the earliest Carmina is back online that would put delivery in theory around early December, which is fine for me personally since the weather in Chicago doesn't start getting really nasty until then anyway.

    Not sure how this would look asthetically but is it possible to only do the top 3 or 4 eyelets in steal and the remaining be blind eyelets? I'm not really a fan of metal eyelets on a bal boot however I understand the need to compromise on a GMTO. Besides that am indeed interested in a calf/suede combo with dainite sole on the rain last.

    I guess we'll just have to play the waiting game and the cross our fingers...

    +1.

    I'm very interested in a balmoral boot on the Rain last, but would prefer a leather sole, for the above reasons, and also blind eyelets (ie not visible steel eyelets), again for dressiness reasons.

    Your fall/winter list for upcoming Carmina stock shows a longwing in cognac shell. Any idea of the sole?

    I found a photo of a cognac shell LWB that you brought in fall 2013 that said it was on double Dainite, so I assume it's just a restock of that.

    Heads up: we will have to adjust our prices across the range in early September due to currency exchange rates (both the GBP and Euro has become much more expensive for us). The price increase will be about 5-10% on most items. I wanted to give our SF pals an early heads up for those of you guys who are on the fence about something.

    I think you can still order it. My understanding is that G&G needs only 5 orders in the same width, after that your can order an additional pair in different width.
