    Hallo!

    I've got some questions regarding the Carmina loafers on the Uetam last.

    First off all, what are the differences between the following two shoes?
    According to the description on your site they should be the same, even in colour, but the first one looks dark brown to me, while the second one like tan, maybe they are even a different style?
    http://www.thearmourystore.com/shoes/new-carmina-tan-suede-tassel-loafers-uetam-last
    http://www.thearmourystore.com/shoes/carmina-tan-suede-string-loafer-uetam-last

    Also, regarding the Uetam last, you, ethan, said they are an E width but slightly narrower than the Forest last.
    I have owned very little well made shoes, none of them of Carmina or a loafer.
    I know I have slightly wider feet, E width according to Rancourt & Co while they call D regular, and am afraid of ordering a wrong size but unluckily Betty wasn't able to point me to a store in Germany which offered Carminas roughly my size (~UK6.5 to US7E) so I could do anything about it.
    Knowing it's not ideal, could you give me an educated recommendation on the length and width of my bigger foot alone?

    Do you have experience with German customs and could tell me how much a HKD 3800 shoe would turn out shipped to Germany including customs, shipping etc.?

    Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

    One of the nicest outfits ever. I want details of everything here... If ever more pictures of the same outfit. And is it something the armoury sell?

    Email them. I'm sure it's either a Ring, Luciano or Liverano Jacket.

    Got everything now it was from:
    The blazer is a ring jacket blazer from SS2011
    The pocket square is Drake's from SS2011
    The shirt is Ascot Chang bespoke
    The tie is by Sorley (only thing they had left)


    Does anyone know were I could find a similar blazer like this? It was made of wool/silk. But it's is especially the design and pattern i'm after. Is the only way to go bespoke?

    Yes, I believe so. I think Jamison said they'd be up shortly after Labor Day (which it is now). Hopefully this week or next.

    Does anybody have any information about their denim? I saw hints of it posted on their blog last month, however when I contacted them via email asking if this is something that is or would be available in the future, I got no response.

    Are you guys going to carry (online) the ring jacket overcoat(s) for this winter? If so, when can we expect them, and at what price?
