1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I agree! There is also a sole that is half way between a double and single sole and this is the Carmina "500" sole. We use this for several models. The Carmina soles are a science in itself though... don't get me started. :)

    Not this time, I have my eyes for the Carmina suede loafers, I need something like that in my life!

    Might visit the store next month, they are worth it.

    There's not so much info on Carmina online, many thanks for the add, Leaves.

    For some samples of Mallorquin spoken:

    I'll get back to you on that, think I have to buy a more every day shoe, maybe the Carmina Adelaide MTO, first with the Galway MTO already in the pipeline. Plus I found a nice french website selling older wines for "cheap" prices, and went a little crazy. So later towards the summer, maybe more people are interested by then as well.

    We have FIVE for this MTO, need one more.

    My loafers of the same price, shipped to the US, were $453.14 after the conversion. About $45 of that was shipping and that's after the VAT discount (20% deducted for non-EU residence). The Adelaides are the same price.

    So..
    Carmina Burgundy Adelaide, more like deep red (GREAT color)
    Flat laces
    Simpson Last
    3400 SEK (2720 ex VAT, approx $420)
    Shipping 300SEK ($45ish USA)


    I won't post about it much longer, don't want to spam the thread. But if you post or PM that you're interested, that'd be great.

    Edit: We are able to go ahead with the number we have. If you are interested, speak now or forever hold your peace.

    I'm obtaining buyer information now so if you want in, email me with your paypal email, UK Simpson Size and delivery address.

    Sorry guys.

    To be brutally honest, I've never tried simpson or Uetam. I'm getting a pair of Uetam loafers in hopefully next week and will be able to base my size off of them from what I hear. My feet are big but "well proportioned" and I fit a variety of shoes pretty well.

    Most of the shoes I see that I like are on Simpson so you will see me cry pretty hard if these MTO's don't fit.

    Some Simpson models can be made on Rain as well.

    I guess I'll have to go visit and try on the simpson last. Do you have any currently in store in size 10.5 - 11.5 (seem to remember Carmina fitting big)

    Fit is awesome, narrow waist helps keep my foot firmly in place with plenty of room in the toe box. Don't feel cramped like most loafers I have worn, light on the feet as well.
