Saphir Reno and Saphir wax in Cognac. So far so good.

Time for a separate Bontoni thread. I will post mine when they arrive...

Can't have Bontoni languishing in the scrum.

Best

Love the llama skin, very soft supple, and best of all the grain / textures are all natural icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

They do absorb moisture a lot more than calfskin. The leather seem to take a light polish quite well, but i wouldnt put too much wax on it

MTO prices depends the model. In Japan, price starts from about ¥100K JPYor about $1200 USD direct from Spigola's Kobe studio. Prices are a bit more at his travelling trunk shows in Tokyo etc. (which happens to be on right now until Sunday)

Ok, I was looking to make a pair of dress shoes with a little casual flare, I always liked the look of John Lobb City III with grain leather and metal eyelets. Sure Ive seen classic oxford shoes from ages ago with metal eyelets, but yeah, just thought it would look cool

the llama skin was an unexpected surprise, he just happened to have enough for one more pair.

The guy who took my order, Mr Suzuki (actually the brother of the famous Koji) suggested for a more casual sole/natural edge/rubber heels, but I didnt like the look of it, so I stuck with a dress sole treatment (which I like very much)

Overall, I'm very satisfied to say the least

Some pics of  the latest addition in my shoe wardrobe, a pair of JM Weston Flore Line 402. A wholecut with seven pairs of eylets. The color is burgundy, but since the pics are taken in indoor lighting they look more brown than they do irl.

Beautiful! They definitely look brown in the lighting but the colour cannot hide that elegant shape!

too many eyelets but beautiful, jeans need to be less stiff though

Thanks guys! I can understand that some have problem with that many eylets, but I really like it on this particular model, gives it a character.
