    In my experiences Carminas are definitely great shoes but I can tell a reasonable difference between them and Gaziano and Girlings. I have 3 or 4 pairs of Carminas so I can compare them. I'd have to say currently they are the best value in higher end mens shoes. Definitely not a $600 difference but I'll still be ordering predominately G&G and EGs.

    I'd consider a leather U-Cap boot for sure from Carmina as well as a few other models. Just waiting for the GMTOs or pre-orders to be announced.

    i love the shoes. i dislike the mindless and increasingly misinformed or uneducated opinions of the internet: broad sweeping statements, poor brand comparisons and value judgments. Sf surely isnt immune to this. gah. i know ive done the same, with 18,000+ posts ive probably done it more than most. but still you cant help but bang your head against the wall

    I'd be grumpy too if I were him. Look how many posts he has. That is a lot of time on the toilet bowl.

    Different query:

    Carmina Snuff Suede. Would you consider this a mid brown, so darker enough in town with mid-gray trousers? Anyone with a pic of such a combo?

    Thanks

    Lol you act like your innocent but I've seen you preemptively call out fight all the time in different threads. You make things worse when you do that lol. In real life you'd be the one chanting fight and cheering when it happens.

    I know I'm going to regret holding out on buying shoes... everyone seems to be on an EG & G&G splurge!
