Below is a description of my preferred make-up (similar to Fok's second suggestion for this round but tweaked a bit): - Style: Service boot - Last: 2030 - Leather: Copper task roughout - if they would do it, perhaps the middle portion (?quarter?) could be oiled similar to the partially oiled boondocker in the other thread (but with the part that is oiled reversed) - Eyelets: Brass - Toe Cap:straight or brogue cap toe (personally I have no preference) - Toe Box:...
Is the above shoe from Viberg?
I like it. I think I would have done the reverse. However, I still think it looks great as-is or would look great if you finish waxing the whole thing.
I'd probably be in for something similar to the copper task roughout you suggested, Fok, or one similar to Haven's (http://shop.havenshop.ca/collections/viberg/products/for-haven-service-boot-copper-task-r-o) but with a different sole. My tweaks or suggestions would be:- Different color tongue than black. preferably something brown/tan (the black tongue may even be a deal-breaker for me)- Prefer 2030 last but I think 2040 would be okay, too- Perhaps a leather sole to...
Thank you for your response. This is the type of reasoning I was concerned I might have overlooked. With that said, I double-checked with Inverallan to be on the safe side and it looks like it is not actually correct in this case.Below is the question I asked them:"I realize this may seem obvious, but I was wondering which would be thicker/chunkier…single or double donegal?"Their response was:"Double Dongeal is thicker and more chunky."
They only have two size 38s left at this point. Amazing denim though.
^^^ Thanks for consolidating information and thank you to dotcomzzzz. In regard to the underlined portion of the following quote, I would take it to mean that the double donegal is less chunky. However, that does not seem to make much sense to me. Am I misunderstanding something? I am assuming the "it" is in response to a question and not referring back to the previous reference to "double" donegal. "In regards to the single donegal weight and thickness, its quite...
Anything on the Single Donegal yet? In particular, the order form for it. Thanks.
I can't quite put my finger on it but personally I am just not a big fan of the copper.I think the cinnamon roughout might be good if they still do it:I also like the roughout in the following pic (although it is also from a few years ago):Also, thank you for all your time and help pulling this together, Fok.
That is quite the bummer (it happens though; no worries) . Kills both of the make-ups I wanted. In regard to D, I would probably advocate the roughout used on the boondocker rather than the copper. I am also really interested in some kind of two-tone offering. So I at least would be interested in other suggestions along those lines that Guy or anyone else has.
