As far as plum museum goes I am interested in either of these choices

Austerity brogue as mentioned
Burghler's example of adelaide above or
Plain toe such as JL Garnier

At the risk of getting lambasted for going too trendy, I'd like to suggest the JL Vale in plum museum calf:

It comes together nicely in my imagination but....I can try to render a bunch of different models in the plum museum and hatchgrain if anyone would like?

Yes, to both for me. I would love to have both run at the same time, because it takes awhile to make the plum leather (I assume), so it increases the length of receipt. So, we would be looking at 5 months or so, based on the Museum MTO. I don't know if the hatchgrain requires the same time to be completed or if it's something they have on hand, or easy access.

In for Plum

Can somebody summarize?

I am interested to join but sifting through that many postings makes one dizzy...

Thanks.

Beautiful leather, but I'm in only if the apron is symmetric. JLs assymetric apron is just nonsense.

That said, then should it be rounded like the inner side of the far shoe or angled like the outer side of the near shoe? Hmmm....

I would love a shoe like the St. Crispin's 519 in hatchgrain, a specific model of captoe derby. The bottom one in this pic:

We are trying to decide on a Plum Museum Model

I believe Hatchgrain is also i the works, possibly wholecut and Chukka. I have yet to see the Chukka model.

Lastly, we don't know if the requisition of both Plum and Hatchgrain will run concurrently or consecutively.

I am interested in the navy naturcalf on the olfe last an I'm looking for some sizing advice. I wear an 8eee in AE 5 last and fits well, but is a little loose width-wise on other lasts. Are my feet too wide for the olfe last?

also, is the picture of the navy naturcalf on meermins website fairly accurate? they seem a little more blue than navy, and I'm looking for something like midnight.

I'd be in for the plum as well in an Adelaide or Plain toe that laufer linked.

From what I understand, we need to have a minimum of 25 orders in plum museum calf, but only 6 in a particular style to avoid the MTO upcharge. I could be wrong, but that would mean that we can have 3 or 4 different styles.

I would love to see something like this in plum museum:

 

 

Esp with the ram-horn brouging.

"ram-horn" ... so much better in casual conversation than "cock and balls" (or is there a difference?)

You guys know that custom broguing is probably off the table, right? Custom medallions are usually reserved for bespoke shoes.
