My EG cleared customs. Please come today or tomorrow!!!
How dark is Carmina's brown suede? Can somebody show side by side comparisons with other shades of suede? I'm thinking brown suede is on the darker end of Carmina's spectrum.
The darker the shade of suede, the more formal?
Inspired by your design, I just paid a deposit for the following:
Model 3540 balmoral boot on 946 last
All pewter museum calf
8 visible black eyelets
Hand-welted 270 degrees
Double leather sole with flush metal toe taps
Natural sock liner
It's very dark. That's why we introduced Polo, this is warmer and lighter but still dark enough to be versatile. Suede will never be formal, but yes, IMO the darker the more formal.
@leaves What time is the cutoff on Saturday to participate the EB MTO?
Pulled this from an email:
Please note that our Enzo Bonafé MTO Promo ends on January 31, 16.00 CET (4 a.m).
Edit: It was pointed out that while it says 16:00, it also says AM, so I guess I am not sure.
mine cleared Monday and I still don have them...going on almost two weeks since the package was sent. The snow stork delayed things about 48 hours but the USPS service has been deplorable on this shipment. Zero fault at all of Skoak of course, just venting about shipping frustrations
Your footwear gets delivered via Stork?!? I think someone needs to be given "The Talk".
I don't think any suede is formal. Not in the traditional sense anyway. Unless we are talking about a balmoral boot with suede shaft, and calf upper combination.
I don't have any comparison shots to offer, but it is a dark brown - not what I would call a medium brown - and definitely an easy pairing with business wear.
From top to bottom Carmina
Nice. Is that the color they call "ante marrón"? I just ordered a pair of wholecuts in that shade of suede the other day.
Thanks. I believe that's what it's called, but really they only have the one shade of dark brown suede so I'm sure that's what you're getting. Looks great in a double monk and a chukka too, IMO.
so classy and beautyful
I have a plain captoe in the dark brown suede and I wear it with suits all the time. I think it's about as close to the formal end of the suede spectrum as you can get, especially if the last is sleek and design fairly plain.
