    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've texted my lady about these boots; they are slick! Let's hope she likes them so I can buy them for her which will hopefully stop the "you bought ANOTHER pair of shoes" argument.

    Leaves, I can "only" see two pairs of Carmina women shoes. Your website states that there should be three?

    Any interest in a GMTO like the below but black edge and laces? Navy shell austerity wingtip, rain or forest last.

    Chart is pretty accurate for my GF. She is normally 6.5US and takes 4UK in Carmina, Tricker's and C&J

    Rag & Bone is 36.5 to 37, Brooks Brothers is 6.5, Tom Ford is 37, Louboutin is 37, Repetto flats are 37.5 and Zara is 36.5 / 37 iirc

    Dont have the shell wholecut, did have the tan. i sold the tan, because of lack of versatility imo.

    My wife is consistent with that sizing so far as well. At least in regards to being a 7.5US and a 38EU. Have yet to get some Carmina, but maybe soon.

    Thank you, all right you convinced me out of tan wholecut. What do you think of cognac she'll color same as tan whole cut meaning not versital enough?

    The 922 on Rain last has the same basic aesthetic design and appeal, yet the presence of broguing and the traditional short wing style make that oxford much more versatile.

    The whole cut concept finds its best place in the black, burgundy and navy categories. A cognac is a little better than saddle or tan but still falls short of the glory of the afore mentioned shades.

    I own/owned the Carmina 922 in saddle and cognac cordovan and thought the world of the designs.

    A whole cut in those hues loses a bit of its appeal IMHO.
