Dieworkwear, that would be great icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Pepe advised me that it would look great in either the Hiro or Olfe last.

Who do I contact if I want to get in on a group buy?

That colour is fine. Doesn't necessarily have to be brown museum calf exactly like JL's. The fact that Meermin can/is willing to source for a museum calf leather is good enough, and I think I like that leather terrorsquad posted.

 

+1 for Olfe. Though I personally prefer a chiseled toe, so Ben would be nice too. But the consensus seems to be for Olfe/Hiro, so...

 

Definitely no Rui though. It just won't look as elegant anymore.

Darn my wide as fuk feet T_T

Or maybe we could ask them to make them on different lasts? Say, from a choice of 3. Just like the previous Austerity brogues in either dark brown or burgundy. I imagine it would be a bit tougher for lasts (maybe even at higher costs), but no harm asking.

I prefer the darker brown as the shoes would be more versatile. Also, the Hiro last is more versatile as well.

Chester Mox uses both shades of that Ilcea leather, and you can compare the shades at Hodinkee.

I personally think the lighter shade would be very difficult to wear, but I also dislike loud shoes.

The pictures are just a sample Pepe sent to illustrate museum calf; I think most likely we will opt for the darker one as its more versatile.

 

With regards to different lasts, I will try to ask Pepe on this. I acknowledge that there are people with wide feet that would like to be part of the group order and as such, I will try to ask Pepe. Though I personally think having a standard last for this order will make Pepe's life much easier.
