    I'm sorry if this has already been discussed. what are the benefits of a seamless wholecut shoe that requires the extra upcharge (by my calculations extra SEK2000)? Is it purely just an exercise to torment the shoemaker and deprive others of the use of the hide?

    Or do they actually have some real advantage in durability, comfort etc? Are the components of the shoe made any differently like requiring thicker leather lining and/ or insoles, leather stiffeners etc. I'd imagine that the entire piece of leather would have to sit on the last for much longer but I don't know much else.

    I've already put one down for an MTO but having a shoe with no cleavage sounds like fun.

    You answered your own questions. That is exactly what it is.

    So I understand everyone is captivated by the fall of the euro and what that means for EG and GG, not to mention the awesome deal being offered on EB MTOs (I already have one in and fighting the urge to order another given I have no idea if the sizing will be correct), but I can't understand how there's not more action on Carmina GMTOs. I mean, look at the site right now. You're getting Carminas for $340 before shipping???? That's like getting a Merc at Toyota prices. I mean seriously, there are probably some idiots buying Cole Haans for that much. Anyone interested in throwing out some ideas? I've been wanting a suede U-wing adelaide for summer - tobacco or maybe the new polo suede? Who's on board? Any other ideas? Let's strike while the iron is hot!

    I am waiting on the new Carmina arrivals and seeing if I can add anything on my MTO Bonafes when it arrives and have them shipped together.

    I may be wrong but Carmina GMTO seem to require a high minimum or else the premium is 50% for single MTOs.

    ^^^ That steep premium is for a single MTO, not group.

    Guys, I believe the minimum is 6 pairs.

    But back to EG talk, haha. In your opinion, which is EG's signature / iconic pair or design? I'm presuming Dovers or Galaways based on the reception here.

    @laufer : I'd be interested in a boot in a wide Forest last depending on the specifications.
