    Lol, all this talk of price increase makes me wonder if it would be cheaper to get a loan for a couple of months to lock in the pre-orders than to pay the increased price a few months from now.

    What do you mean? Once you pre-order by February 28 the amount is locked in. They won't increase the price for the second half of your payment. Or at least they have never done that before and showed no indication on the current pre-orders on the site.

    Just trying to get buckets. Hahaha. I was waiting to see if someone would call me out.

    For a rugged makeup like the mailman shoe, I think they would work. But no one else has jumped on them yet. Would be a great makeup pre-price increase.

    You are in, right, Namor?

    OK. I prefer 2 or 3 eyelet as well but I am OK with 5 eyelet. Looks like just two of us though....

    this isnt even close. 202 looks like 82 next to 64 but its like comparing apples and oranges. great pic though really captures the differences well

    Yeah too bad. Feel free to cross-post/PM anywhere you think would gather interest. I posted in the Carmina thread with no bites. I'm buying them as is either way but I'd obviously prefer the GMTO price vs individual MTO. Will give it a few more days...

    Pretty much. I was thinking of going with a lighter welt, like brown or antique, since the brown Utah isn't that dark. What does EG call their welt colors? My usual preference is double leather soles but it seems wrong to go with leather on a veldt boot.

    I'm thinking the same, scrolls, few more days, and I'm going individual MTO with the suede 905...I'd rather not wait a month and have the CAD even worse off!

    BTW, model 10027 is a 3 eyelet chukka on rain, which is what you wanted instead of 5, right?

    @Leaves , any news on some of the planned arrivals below? It sounds like there are a lot of awesome makeups in there that I would want to get in on before the price increase, but it looks like a lot of those January arrivals for Carmina haven't shown up on your website yet. If possible, can you divulge how much of that list is going to be made available for purchase before March? Thanks!
