    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.

    Leaves,

    I have a question about sizing. I am an 8.5/9 E on the Edward Green 82 and 888 lasts. What size would you recommend for the Forest and Oscar lasts? Specifically in regards to model 80249, the country calf wingtip, and model 813, the burgundy wingtip cordovan. I have a pair of shoes on the Forest last in size 8 UK, they fit ok, but I'm thinking that 8.5 UK might be closer to a US size 9, especially in regards to the instep, as it does feel a bit snug at times. Thanks.

    Does anyone have real life pics of Carmina shell cordovan tassel loafers? I've only seen pics on their website and had some trouble finding real life pics. It appears the Alden version has images in abundance.. :)

    Group MTO update: there has been a delay of the Burgundy Adelaide and the Burgundy Chukka. This is because the tannery Carmina use has had problems delivering this particular color. I have no more info regarding when it can be expected to arrive either. I'm going to the Carmina factory on Monday September 30 and hopefully I get more info then.

    Hey Leaves since you are going to visit Carmina factory can you inquire about availability of the chestnut grain calf please?

    That grain is no longer available, sorry. But the one we used for our latest Jumper Boot in grain was similar.

    I received my Carmina grain calf jumper boots earlier this week and shot some pics this morning. Thanks Leaves for the smooth transaction and quick shipping! :D

    This GMTO was placed mid-July so this will arrive mid-October at the earliest.

    Some of our products were featured on a SVT (Swedish BBC) talk show a few days ago, about 3 minutes in you will see our friend Christian showing a Bonafè Button Boot and a Carmina Derby Wingtip. http://www.svtplay.se/video/1493292/28-9

    Anyone interested in having the Carmina 803 split toe made in the same lightly grained brown calf as the Jumper boot?

    Leaves, do you plan to offer either Carmina 80191 or 80372 in burgundy shell for next summer season?
