Carmina does has the capacity to do the Alden-style single monk.

 

 

These were mentioned some 100 pages ago by another user-- this is a make-up that the Armoury did on the Rain last. The style isn't to my liking, but I'm pretty sure this is something we could produce.

11E Truebalance. 11E Barrie is almost too narrow. hoping 10.5E Forest works.

I think a hatchgrain wholecut would look best on Simpson.

Damn forgot about that I'm good for any welt / sole but would love brass eyelets on the loden jumper

I'm in full agreement.

I think a monk in lizard might be interestingly terrible or amazing. I am leaning toward terrible. I would think that a wholecut in lizard or a captoe would be better. just my opinion. I would go either color

Any color lizard single monk (Rand style) is fine with me. I saw the black lizard double monk in Paris and it was beautiful.

I am good with a single or double monk, but I'd only be in for black in the rand type style. A lizard Chelsea would be cool too, but ill only go for something like that if the monk ends up being brown.

Does anyone else find the York sole fits slightly tighter on the forest than does the leather? I'm thinking about the Loden jumper but may want to go for a wider fitting...thoughts?

I also think the Loden Jumper, if using the commando sole, would benefit from the punched captoe to keep the ruggedness of the sole and shoe consistent...how does that sound?

I really like those same color leather/suede contrasts. The burgundy is really nice, as is the first one on the left (is that black? the suede looks light). Navy leather and navy suede might look pretty fly too...

I mostly wear the York sole, but from trying on the double leather sole I feel they run basically the same-- but if you feel it's a little snug, you don't have anything to lose from going up to a wide size. It's a blucher, and it's a boot, so worst case scenario you can mitigate the extra width by tightening the boot a little more.

In all this current mto talk, will there be possibly be re-runs of past cognac or ruby shell makeups?
