    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.

    Impressive list - yet I'm missing the Carmina model 80184 Jumper Boot in antiqued grain calf, Oscar last, Commando sole. Or aren't re-stocks listed here?

    This one sounds extremely interesting to me! Would you have any pictures or mock-ups...?

    ^ Also wondering about that U-wing boot. Which last? How many eyelet/hooks?

    Quote: I know Leaves mentioned this one before, but what are the details?

    What kind of rubber sole is this? Something thin I hope, maybe Tomir?

    Some real good stuff on the horizon. That Carmina U-wing cordovan boot should be a honey. And I can't wait to see what the Bonafe baby lama looks like.

    In present stock, I am super tempted by the Carmina burgundy pebble grain jumper. Only thing is I know it will be rendered redundant when the cordovan frankenstitch finally arrives. Only problem is that nobody knows when that will be - likely including Carmina themselves.

    Looking online but I can't seem to see which is darker - mahogany or rosewood CC's? Am I correct it thinking the colors are quite similar, and that the rosewood is slightly redder than the mahogany? Sorry to be a dumsy newby.

    Hopefully this will help.

    Restocks not listed. Calf/Grain Bal Boot and Jumper in both black and grain will be restocked. Along with a lot of other old favorites. First big batch incoming next week. Keep tuned!



    Detroit is wide. Rain is wide. Most Bonafé lasts fit wide.



    We'll post a sketch shortly.


    Yes, Tomir if I recall correctly.

    Dude! I know. I cried a little when I read that. I don't know if I can swing it. We'll see.

    I'm off to sleep. But we have something like 250 pairs (about 40 pairs of these Cordovan make ups) incoming from Carmina next week. We have not taken pre-orders so it will be first come first serve when they are posted online. We will e-mail people on the waiting list the first thing we do when we put them up so e-mail us if you want in on the waiting list on any particular model.

    I'm very pleased with the details, and i like the contrast from the black sole and lacings. This is my first MH71 last GG, and i'll be honest, it's hard for me to see the difference from my other TG73 last shoes. I'll have to compare them side by side some more later. Thanks to Skoak for the great service :thumbs-up:
