What last is it on?

Anyone interested in that Alt Wein boot in natural CXL??

Potentially. I may be more interested in leaving it dark brown. I also think it would be sick in saddle shell.

Chukka...
Turns out that Fok is a hell of a designer, as I've gotten about a dozen emails from guys who saw these on Instagram. The grey suede is back in stock, so we could turn it around pretty quickly, or we could do it in snuff, brown, sand, etc. I think that most guys would prefer the shape without the medallion. And it's on the forest last.

They do a great dusty brown color suede, which could be pretty fresh on this shape...



Alt Wien Boot
I was really stunned at how nice this looks in person. It sounded like a cool idea and it came together brilliantly. Saddle shell would definitely be boss on this. I've had a lot of dudes interested in the Kudu leather. What if we made it up in Kudu and asked them to do a light burnishing so that it came in as a pale tan?

I'm just tapped into the #menswear zeitgeist.  fwiw, I was struck by how attractive was the broguing on my wife's shoes, and really wanted that feature on my boots.  Also, it's a nice departure from the traditional plaintoe chukka, but one that pays respect to the casual, country and leisure roots of the chukka.  All the jibba jabba aside, I just think that it looks cool.  You too could be the coolest cat in the Inland Northwest, between Seattle and Grand Forks.

Grey Suede Chukkas

Made for Styleforum's own LA Guy. They're on a natural crepe sole and have a medallion on the toe. It's a rad take on the Carmina chukka, and a much more direction design than what we usually see

 

The grey chukka boots look sick! What colours would you pair them with? Dark raw denim and khakis? Maybe even blue or green chinos?

Mike posted some other pics in Instagram...here is a "heavy" stitch cap toe shoe and a boot version...

Agreed! This is a tough leather to get, but I think that they have some stock. I'm going to see if we can lock down enough for 12 units. A grey suede makeup for May delivery would be absolutely brilliant. This shape could be really sharp as a simple PTB or the heavy stitch captoe. It contrasts so nicely with the crepe sole.

Totally agree! Here are my loden suede chukkas with the crepe. Obviously a bit different in color but carry a similar vibe. I have been wanting a straight up grey chukka so looking forward to what gets put together.

I'd be so down for something like that in Saddle. Can we see a photoshop mock up?

Grey suede idea: longwing on the Detroit last, black edge trim (gotta have that contrast), double leather sole.

That suede is awesome.

If you could get enough, I think another cool idea would be do a modified version of the 10092 boot. Black leather bottom, grey suede shaft. Single or double leather. The modification would be to do only 7 eyelets. If they could to it on Rain, that would be even better.



Edit: I also think a grey suede austerity brogue would be pretty sweet.

Second edit: I almost forgot about these:

Trying to pay for my hatchgrain MTO balance through PayPal but when I click complete my purchase it doesnt do anything.  Anyone else having this problem from Epaulet?

The gray suede would look great on the single-strap monkstrap.
