7 eyelets is fine and I especially like the idea of the cap toe.
I am leaning more toward a 2030 last and hate the idea of 310 last. -simple google search- (pic of 310 last included in this post)
Any more input on this Mocha Chromexcel service boot?

Sure Arizor, I'll list the specs that I am aware for those 2 black boots. Also, leather options for a black service boot are at the moment (at least for single MTO) Black Oil Tan and Black Chromexcel.
The Manufactum's 1940 Service Boots:
- to my understanding, 2030 last
- black shell cordovan upper (note that the togue is not made of cordovan)
- Unlined shaft, front area lined with calfskin
- partial box toe/partially structured toe, meaning that "It basically covers the edge of the front end" as Morgan put it.
- dainite sole
- natural single midsole
- 5 eyelets, no top band
Tate+Yoko 1950 Service Boot
- 2030 last
- black calf leather
- to my understanding, no box toe/unconstructed toe
- natural single midsole
- 6 eyelets
There is also single MTO black cordovan 1950 Service Boot you might be interested, but I don't know the specs for sure (you could ask about them directly from inquire at SuFu, if needed):
style: Service Boot
leather: Vintage Tan Roughout
toe cap: Brogue Captoe Baroque Toe Cap (maybe straight but probably not)
last: 2030 Last (possibly 2040 if too many people found the 2030 too narrow)
sole: Dainite Sole or leather sole
Basically, something along the lines of the follow collaboration with Nigel Cabourn but without the pre-distressing:
The other makeup I would love to see would be the same as the whiskey scotch grain cavalier and brown CXL (two colors in other words) service boot they have as a standard but on a sleeker last like the 2030. So, something like the following boot but with a sleeker toe box:
Awesome! Though it seems the others expressing interest in black boots may have a different aesthetic vision than I did
Thanks for all your effort........It's much appreciated. Should be exciting to see what comes together........
Lots of service boots, how about an suede oxford with a unstructured toe?
Basically this with a Vibram 2060 sole.
