    Sounds delicious. I was sorely tempted by the etrusco wholecut. These may be an instakop.

    How nice would those look in a dark oak, with pebble grain upper :)

    I see. Then, yes, just watch this space for news of the pre-order.

    They really are incredible. I have great admiration for Enzo Bonafe's shoes. I just wish I knew my size. I understand the one last is similar to the Carmina Rain, but I am afraid they won't fit. Lovely, lovely shoes.

    Very well made pair of shoes, some minor blemishes and marks here and there (most notably there is some "fuzziness" on the edges of the leather on the back of the right boot). Great price to quality ratio. I like it more than my Carminas from Skoak which I haven't had the best of luck with on QC.

    (Apologies if I messed up on the formatting, not used to the editor)

    Any word from Carmina on the Tärnsjö grain derby boots? Alexander mentioned that they were expected for mid September or so. Thanks!

    Is Soller last generous in all proportions or just width? My 7.5UK Rain and Robert last shoes are a tad loose with thin dress socks (particularly my left foot), so I'm thinking of sizing down a full size to 6.5UK in Soller.

    Guys,

    How is this project moving along? Have we decided on the last? What about soles? Are we all dead set on the vintage oak? Personally I would prefer espresso but I understand that color is too dark for some members. There is another mid brown color Gaziano and Girling Mocha. @Leaves can you check with G&G if they still offer Mocha?

    I haven't emailed yet, not sure if I like the fit of F or E better. However, my vote will be for Vintage Oak, TG73, and Single Leather.
