Hm, Leffot contacted me to say that EG is ready to the cut the leather on my MTO Shannon boots, but wanted to me to approve of the sketch they made.
Everything seems fine, but I'm now having second thoughts about requesting blind eyelets on my balmoral boots. Any thoughts on whether I should get matched agatine eyelets instead?
To give you a sense of the rest of the boot - I asked for a punched cap toe, double leather sole, no speed hooks, made from antiqued dark oak leather. My original thought was that blind eyelets would make the boots a bit dressier. Give it the sense that it's a regular oxford until one actually sits down. Looking over these two photos now, however, I'm not so sure. Anyone care to weigh in?
Neither of these have a punched cap toe, but they approximate the design otherwise.
