I agree that the mainline is Carmina level, but the Artista line is above CarminaMy first pair from TLB is their balmoral boot from the regular lineup. The last is surprisingly voluminous around the calf and there's room for thicker socks. The main sticking point so far is that the tip of the shaft rubs against the leg painfully. Most likely I can fix this with heel grips, glued unorthodoxically around the shaft top. The last and finishing look very good, but the leather creases more than I'd prefer really. The overall quality is Carmina's level.
