    Looking at the Carmina belts on the website. Is 34" the smallest size in stock? I've got a slender build and have a 30" waist.

    Hadn't really turned my mind to the deets, but something sleek in a three eyelet. Need to find out more about the various sole options as well.
    These are very handsome, but I wouldn't want a sole this thick; [​IMG]

    Keep me posted. Suede #4 in a shape like the lama chukka could be really nice as well

    I also would like to see smaller size belts. I was looking to add one to my order a few weeks ago but was disappointed to find only 34'' + size.

    Ugh where were you guys. I proposed suede chukkas and Adelaide a month ago and no takers. Would probably go for a color between volpe and jasper for chukka on Dante.

    I know it's not a perfect solution, buty any cobbler can shorten the Carmina belts in a matter of minutes. They are made specifically to have the option to shorten them, like most belts.



    Vitello Giamaica. The model shown is a modified 3200 on the 946 last. The modification is the peaked heel counter to make it look more like the St James II. The normal 3200 has a rounded heel counter like on the St James. Also, the normal 3200 has a punched cap toe.

    Kinda like this that I saw moving up the production line at Bonafé? Unfortunately not ours. Probably a Japanese retailer.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Leaves. Just to clarify, it's considered a MTO whether I change the color or not then? What's the current waiting time for MTOs? How much are lasted shoe trees?

    Also, does the normal (not modified model) has a medallion in addition to the punched cap toe?
    Thanks.

    A 15% surcharge will be applied to any single order. The 15% surcharge for single MTO allows for a lot of customization though, like changing of lasts, materials, slight design changes like medallion and extra punching, but for pattern changes and heavy modifications there will be a 30% surcharge.

    Yes, the original model 3200 is an Adelaide semi brogue (punched cap toe with medallion).
