I would vote for Venetian with a slightly pointy toe. That Epaulet special leather sounds like it would fit for both dress up and down, especially it'll be in a brownish color. Are you planning on this being handsewn or?
don't know about Seraphin. but for PS, I believe their Japan-made frames are still considered good. But those are made in Italy is made out of the same factory as Prada and all other brands, which means quality isn't the best.
