    I've been looking very longingly at the Carmina Inca double monk in Cognac or in Navy. Both are beautiful.

    I think the shape of the C&J last you chose is more elegant, though. Inca is a pretty last, but the almond toe isn't for everyone.

    I've got a pair of Carmina DMs in calf and the Inca last is very comfortable if you have a wider forefoot (as I do). The Lowndes on the 348 is narrower.

    Whoah. More than the Rider pebble LWB or #2 Aldens?

    They're incredible, though. Congrats.

    Folks,

    I am doing an interest check to see if anyone is interested in GMTO boots from Enzo Bonafe who seems to have a solid supplies of Horween Shell Cordovan. I am contemplating doing a chukka or ankle boot in natural shell. If anybody is interested in joining me please let me know.

    Here is the swatch
