Yeah, I forgot what the sample was like shog[1].gif

I know I keep bringing up the dark green shell, never seems to get going...if not a PTB, how about a LWB? Like a galosh kinda shoe that LS just did with Trickers in Navy Shell? That'd be a cool Spring/Late Winter release.

I also think the Jumper in Navy Suede would be SIIICCCKKK, maybe have it with metal eyelets all the way instead of the speedhooks?

Mike, does that mean that anyone affected by the Cognac Shell boot shortage has been contacted and you've received a response back from them? I'm still not certain if I'm affected by this or not.

BTW, the purple lining on the black scotchgrain boot is a very nice touch.

This. Please. With shiny brass hardware. I think Mike might have had ideas about this previously.

 

BTW Mike's said before that the extended shaft boots are high enough that not having speed hooks would be a pain. Still, it would look baller.

Seems to me as if there are two ways we could go with this.
First is to create a quasi-saddle shoe with the pebble grain for the quarter (i.e., as the saddle), though that may be mixing up the style a little too much. I don't want Mike to feel glum because I'm sullying his Austro-Hungarian beauty.
My other thought is to have shell make up the vamp, tongue, and quarter, with the scotch grain for the brogued cap toe, the heel counter, and those little strips of leather that the lacing runs through (whatever they are called).
Any enthusiasm? I ask because I'm considering getting in on the Alt Wien calf reorder for a wide fitting, but will hold off it it looks like we have sufficient interest for a group MTO. Which is what, six people total?
Don't all answer at once.

YES YES YES YES

Ah ha! Mirabile visu. Looking around I think the cognac scotch grain used for the plug in the the SF x Epaulet x Carmina Steinbeck makeup below is what I have in mind for the toe, the heel counter and the lacing area:



Remainder burgundy shell.

Mr. Chorizo, which direction do you prefer here? As indicated just above in this comment, I think I've come around to the second.

Hopefully this gets us in for at least a mockup from Mike... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

while i think a two-tone woud look good, I'm more in favor of a more tonal make up that uses similar colors in different fabrications.

are there any two-tone carminas (this pattern or not) that you can reference?

So, for example, burgundy shell and burgundy or dark brown scotch grain?

Hey guys,
Quick note on this one. Our delivery of Cognac Shell Balmoral boots was short-shipped by three units, and two SF members were gracious enough to wait for a recutting of this style.
We're putting another run into work this week, and I have enough leather to cut an additional 5 boots over the backordered units. The specs will be exactly the same as the first run, and delivery will be around end Jan, mid Feb. I'll post up a full batch of photos tomorrow, but feel free to PM me anytime if you want to get on the reorder of this style.
Thanks!
Mike

no wides in this last, right?

Assume it will be on the Forest last again, and that is the one last for which you can indeed order a wide fitting.

Any idea on when the ruby boot order will be turned in?
If the delivery looks like it might slip to spring I may get a different boot that is already available.
Thanks.

Noob question-What was the price of the black scotch?

Waiting to pounce as soon as you put those remake pre-orders up!
Also curious to hear if you got the Austerity sample in the mail this week as you expected.

Hey guys!

Apologies that I've been AWOL on the thread this week - I'm finally catching up with everything on here. Big thanks to everyone who PM'd me to order wides, I'm wrapping up the orders in the next day and I'll shoot out any invoices that I owe you guys tomorrow. Once again, we're going to reorder the following styles, all of which are available in wide fittings:

Balmoral Boot Cognac Shell Cordovan
Balmoral Boot Black Scotchgrain
Fitzgerald Shortwing Cognac Shell Cordovan
Alt Wien Caramel Calfskin
Anderson Jump Boot Cognac Shell Cordovan

Also, we've got another 100+ unit delivery from Carmina en-route already. I should get the shipping papers shortly and we'll see what's in there. If I'm lucky with customs, I'll get it on Wednesday and then I can shoot and build everything on Friday. If customs drags its heels, then Thanksgiving will push it out until early next week. Either way it's going to be soon! I'll let you guys know what's inside as soon as I know.

Love your ideas for this, I'll bust out some mockups tomorrow and let's see if we can get something rolling!

Thanks.

The Ruby Boot order was already submitted, but we'll most likely be looking at a late Jan, mid Feb delivery for this.

Hoping that the Austerity boot sample is in with our incoming shipment. And if you're interested in any of the remakes, please drop me a PM. Thanks!
