 If you are sick of tourist food in Hoi An, bike or cab (abt US3) out to An Bang beach and get good and cheap seafood at Tuyet, 2nd shack on your right. Tamarind prawns and caramelised squid are very good but everything is fresh, and mostly alive before cooking. The are 2 or 3 nice lounge/resto operated by gaijin on your left for chillout. An Bang is also a better beach than Cua Dai.Banh Mi Phoung, made famous by Bourdain, is pretty good and you must get the everything...
Is there a test shoe for the semi-bespoke? Can we do this through Skoak even if we go there personally as payment and shipping from Italy might be problematic for non EU customers?  Also, sorry to repeat the question here but do Bonafe offer hatchgrain and if yes, is there any sample to show?    
@Skoaktiebolaget, May I know if Bonafe offer hatchgrain? 
 You better stop now or before you know it, you're on the slippery slope to Japanese bespoke.  This thread is full of shoes that will make you **** in your pants.

Sure, not a problem if it could not be done.  Was hoping it could be done as a wholecut as I find the seamless back very attractive.  I am willing to pay an upcharge for that design. 
Sorry hoodog, I was referring to a Bonafe's last.  Am trying to arrange a GMTO of Bonafe's version of Oundle in Grey Museum.  A GMTO of Oundle in Slate is pretty hard to get going so going Bonafe's way.  Sorry to bring it up in EG's thread.    
Patrik or Alex, may I know which last is this Bonafe on?  It's done for Ring Jacket.  
Great, is the new almond (804) last ok for you?  Btw, dark oak dover in 606 is available for order thru Skoak, no MTO fees required.
