    I've been wanting to explore Carmina, and had been eyeing the Epaulet Anderson Jumper Boot in Cognac.

    So is Carmina's cognac between ravello and cigar?

    Cognac is a great color. It's a mid-dark brown with great depth - paler than Ravello, but without the green undertones of Cigar. It's really stunning.

    Similarly, Ruby goes further in the red direction than even #4. Saddle sits between light Whiskey and Ravello; again, paler (more transparent - kind of hard to explain), but less yellow than whisky.

    Carmina offers great shell colors, and are apparently well stocked Cordovan-wise. Their QC is top notch. Check out the deep green "Loden" color being discussed on the Epaulet thread right now as well. They also do a Navy shell which is absolutely stunning.

    FWIW, not that I'm in a position to order new shoes at the moment, but a Ruby Thor boot would be stunning and very unique.

    Just Saphir brown cordovan cream (I assume it just has more dye)

    Also like NTL CXL but I also wanted a brown (like the Indy color) but with a natural welt; plan on getting another pair on Leffot's next run.

    Gcb,
    I'd be in for the cognac. I'm missing a cigar boot in the collection. Wouldn't mind something cigaresque or ravello-ish.

    I'd probably be in for the ruby as well. How does it stack up next to color 8?

    E widths possible?

    Where do we stand on eyelets vs speed hooks?

    Commando sole?

    Sorry if this has been addressed. Movers come tomorrow and I'm swimming in boxes and feeling a bit overwhelmed. This Thor idea is a nice mood lifter :)

    Put me down as definitely interested in a cognac or cigaresque Carmina boot.... Sounds like a great project and could scratch my shell "itch"... :)

    Ruby shell is awesome.

    Be aware that sometimes "cognac" comes out more cigar than ravello.

    Cognac (AS, but you get the idea), #4, Ruby, Ravello.

    A cigar-ish boot would be great IMO.
