I've never worn that last before. I usually take a 9.5 on the MH and TG
Initially I intended on getting the Harrogate, but then I decided to go for the Malvern in chameleon calf\loden suede.
That sounds like it would be up my alley. When do you take delivery of those?
Also is there something you wouldn't wear spectators with? Obviously a more business suit but a casual suit would work as well as trouser and sportcoat right?
I ordered these 1 Jan, so expected delivery is May. Typically I wear my Carminas with Jeans, and i'll more than likely do so with my EGs. But I can certainly see them going with trousers and sport coat.
Carmina Black Grain Jumper GMTO
Below are the details for the make up I am proposing:
Make: Carmina jumper through Skoaktiebolaget
Toe design: Straight cap toe
Leather: Black grain calf
Eyelets: 5 eyelets with 3 speed hooks in gunmetal
Pull tab: yes
Edging: All black
Lining leather: Maroon or purple. Probably purple.
Cost: The base price is $380 for the jumper boot so it will be the same as that plus shipping, which will depend on where you live. For us in the USofA I’m guessing it will cost around $420 shipped.
I made an Imgur album of some similar make ups to give an idea of what it could look like. So far there are 5 people interested, only need one more to waive the MTO fee.
Open to changing anything except the leather and sole.
Carmina jumper sounds great. I'm in - vote for purple or royal blue liner
I just kopped the GG
I've got purple lining on my Carmina black scotch grain jumpers, it's great.
How does the Soller size compared to the Rain and Forest? I take a 7.5 in rain and 8 in Forest.
Great choice, Congrats.
Did they have you size already in stock, or will you have to wait for a refill?
they were in stock so it was easy to pull the trigger!
First wear of the model Galway. Actually wasn't planning on wearing them but it started snowing so I figured it's a good christening: @Ironist, I also don't find the dark oak too dark. I used clear wax to take a little of the brown off and it looks just right to me.
Looking good, Dppr!
A little neutral polish and wax knocked mine down a couple shades as well.
Dude, we can totally make the EG thread like Alden and have a "dark oak Galways XXXday"!
In. Let me know the date and I'll put it on my calendar for Galway Day.
