    Will you restock the Carmina calf/grain balmoral boot anytime soon?

    Thanks for the info!

    How many would be into this? This would be my first Carmina boot, so I'm not too familiar with lasts. Something forgiving, preferably. Forest? Punch cap, either leather or Dainite sole, black calf upper and black suede shaft. I'm open to eyelets and speed hooks, leaning toward having speed hooks, for convenience sake. Pretty much this exact boot:

    So... Takers?

    What I've most commonly heard is:

    Full brogue referring to a wingtip with medallion/general punching.
    Half brogue referring to a cap toe with medallion.
    Quarter brogue referring to a punched cap toe without a medallion.

    But I've also heard a lot of dispute over the differences in what defines a "half" or "quarter" brogue, and the arguments on either side are usually rather pedantic.

    This was just restocked about a month ago, so it's going to take a while for it to crop up again.

    Thanks for info, how about the 2102 in terms of width / instep to 888 or Carmina Rain?

    Seems like you are not aware that Carmina is not accepting cordovan orders, and has not been for some time

    How can a Frankenstich captoe and a NST be on the same boot?

    The first rule of Frankenstitch is not to question Frankenstitch
