post #1096 of 1242

The cotto cordovan does look good, even though I shouldn't be buying boots at the moment, but there is the lead time to consider :) I must say I like the black welt, it gives the boot a more formal look which I think suits it, dark brown welt etc would be the only other possibility I would consider so as not to detract from the cotto.

Yes, that was my original thought at well ... you could dress them up a bit better if needed. I still prefer the black/cotto combo, and hopefully everyone can come on board.

OK, so Richard just got back to me with a very reasonable price quote of 445GBP which would be about $738, which was less than I was expecting, so there you go. 

 

Price quote at $738

 

Having just communicated with Richard again, I think we are preferring a darker welt, which as a member stated above, gives it a more elegant look...

Just tempting people…imagine with an appropriate black lining, of course….

Here you go, not quite Trickers, not quiet cordovan.

 

but looks nice.

Laces: Black.
Lining: Red or Black?
Sole Dainite sole Red  or Black

ravn's  Eaton boot gives an idea what it will look like

 

 

Another possible would be burnished coffee with dark brown binding.

^ They look bloody awful, to me anyway. Circus shoes.

 

Spoke to Richard yesterday about the possibility of getting a run of monkey boots made up in acorn, as per the below from Rakuten. Don't want anything fancy but suggest maybe a Victory sole as opposed to the usual studded Dainite to give a little better grip whilst keeping a low profile. And I don't fancy a natural welt either because they have been well and truly done to death...Don't care about lining colour and the like...

 

 

Victory sole below

 

 

Anyone interested? Drop me a PM...

Hi folks I am revisiting a previous MTO.

Here are the specifications.

 

Model: Stow.
Last: 4497s / Width Fitting: 5 or 4444 Fitting 5 (Kelmscott) ??
Colour:

* Burgundy scotch grain on Toe Cap, Facings, Quarters and Heel Counter.

* Burgundy calf on Vamp and Tongue.

* Backstrip in Burgundy Burnished.
Lining: Red Calf Lining.
Pull Loops: Red Pull Loops.
Eyelet: Dark Brown Eyelets.
Laces: Dark Brown Waxed Cord Laces.
Welt: Barbour Welt in Natural Finish.
Sole: Dainite Sole in Red.

 

 

^^

 

I know some wanted a full scotch grain texture on this boot, so we'll leave it up to a vote.

I am in on either version.

 

Please feel free to PM if interested.

best regards

I am all in with your original proposal, but will prefer 4497 last on width 5.

I hope 4497 last is not the issue, I am ok with 4444 too, what happened to all the interest for burgundy sctoch grain from few weeks ago? Lets get this made.

I''ve spent the last week searching for the perfect casual brown summer shoe – something that will go with any color chino, fatigues, or grey wool. Eventually, I came across Shoe Healer's coffee burnished coffee Stows:



It's the perfect shade – so I figured they must obviously make them into Keswicks, right?



Well, they don't. I think it's a total oversight to not offer one of the stock models in the most versatile color brown they have.

Would anyone else be interested in doing a MTO for something this straightforward? I know most of the shoes generated by this thread look very custom, but maybe there are a few people looking to get something they can get a lot of day-to-day wear out of?

I need shoes, rather than boots, so will be leave off buying boots until the summer, which is not much help for you at the moment.

 

I would say I don't like the effect on the quarters with all grain, if you're mixing I think the facings look better in calf like this Frans Boone.

I contacted Richard and asked if he would like to join this MTO.

 

So far is

 

RAVN

Baldrick

Rainbowgrease

 

And 4444 appears to be the preferred last.

 

I forget how many are needed to complete the MTO request.
