    I looked at Kent's but they seem different...must be the lighting or camera angle. I posted the pic on Kent's thread but have not received a reply!!

    Lovely Spoo - I believe you bought the last pair in UK 8.5 as they are sold out. Will have to wait until they some more in stock!!

    It's definitely the same tie, and it looks excellent in real life. I prefer the straight-ended knit, but you can also order a pointy-ended knit from Kent.

    I was wondering if there where two options (straight or pointed)...why do you prefer the straight end? I can't decide.

    Thanks - I paid for these 3 weeks before they arrived so I would not miss them.

    Nobody get excited about the impending UK 8.5 rusticalf double monks either, there aint gonna be a UK 8.5 in those either (unless they get more than one). Matter of fact, nobody get too excited about any Simpson lasted UK 8.5 from the Armoury from now on. :)

    Actually, I'm pretty sure that that is a Gallo tie. I have the same one myself.

    Something on the Forest last. I started emailing Alan about sizing back in September and he suggested that last, but the necessary width would be a mto. So just looking for a forest last model in 9.5 or 10 to see about the length.

    Update on the Carmina range;

    We currently have two new styles - The Robert Last Straight Tip in Brown, and the Snuff Suede loafers on the Uetam Last. These came with the last delivery, with some restock of sizes in our classic styles.
    Coming in the next delivery is one new style - A Robert Last Double Monk in Dark Brown Suede. We have a replenishment due for the Simpson Cap Toes in Black and Brown, Inca Double Monks, Simpson Brown Suede Cap Toes and Loafers.

    Apologies to everyone that is waiting on certain styles - while we try to anticipate what styles and sizes are going to be the most popular, even we are surprised by the demand of certain models. Carmina is growing in popularity each month, it seems, so production times cant be rushed, as much as we wish we could.
