    Thank you for the compliments but they really should be directed to the Drake's team rather than us! I hope you enjoyed the shop, the green grenadine is one of my favourite ties.

    Carmina shoe bags - the two pairs got from The Armoury only had one shoe bag in the box but the pair I got from Carmina had two shoe bags. I checked and the bags were all exactly the same size.

    Is there any particular reason for this or did some batches of orders only come with one bag per pair of shoes?

    Kind of weird...I bought a pair of the Salinger Double Monks from Epaulet and they came with 2 shoe bags but the MTO Austerity Brogue only came with 1 bag.

    I've also heard that some Carmina shoes come in green boxes and a friend who just got a pair of full brogue calf balmorals had a single red(!) shoe bag rather than the brown which I have with all mine. I wonder also if it's a grading kind of thing.

    Very interesting!

    I emailed the store a couple of times and haven't heard back - anyone else having this problem?

    They're usually pretty prompt unless they have an event but still pretty good about answering emails...could be caught in their spam folder.

    Send them a PM from Style Forum telling them you emailed them a question and your email address so they can look for it in their spam folder.

    Has anyone order specs from the MTO Nackymade section?

    How quickly did you get them, and (if you are in the USA), how did you get them fitted for lens?

    Ordered a pair in early March after seeing them when I was in HK in January. Still waiting. I'm not sure if I understand your question about lenses, but I'll take them to my regular optician when they arrive.

    Just received an email that they're in stock, so just over two months from order to completion.

    Went to The Armoury yesterday to pick up a pair of Carmina Brown Suede Double Monk, amazing shoes. Also, they have the G&G Rothschild Chestnut restocked as well as two models of Saint Crispin's. Oh Lord, they are absolutely beautiful.

    I want a pair of the Rothchild's so bad that I can't see straight...maybe for my birthday in the fall. Since I have no idea what size to order, does anyone know how the Rothchild fits compared to Carmina Rain last? I'm assuming St. Crispin also has a variety of lasts too, does Carmina have a last that's similar to the Rotchild last?
