ENZO BONAFÈ 3964 SPLIT TOE DERBY GMTO IDEAS:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thank you all for showing such a big interest in this model and the whole Skoak team are really happy with how this model turned out to be. Here are a summary of the GMTO ideas presented so far, to get a better overview and to see if there are any more interested member on SF. Please note that we have to limit the maximum number of participants to 6-8 people for this model on GMTO's, because of the stitching technique. Due to the fact that there goes a lot of man-hours into this style, and only one artisan in the factory can make it, this is preferred by Bonafè. The lead time will be about 6 months for this particular model. More information about swatches, lasts and other details can also be found on our website regarding the Bonafè MTO program:

http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/pages/enzo-bonafe-made-to-order

 

SUGGESTION 1:

Vitello Bolet with soft burnishing, 946 last, Single leather sole, Hand welted (270 degrees) with Bombè waist, Matching sole edge, Natural lining

--> Interested members: @tdes81, @Pbayvip, @bsarosi, @Dslondon

 

SUGGESTION 2

Inca 6127 or Betis Castagna, 74945 last, Millerighe rubber soles, 360 degrees Chained Norvegese construction, Natural lining

--> Interested members: @ThunderMarch, @walkthetalk, @supern0va, @beargonefishing, @namtp2610, @Dslondon, @bloodyj13, @budapest12

 

SUGGESTION 3:

Aubergine calf, Millerighe rubber soles with 270 degrees welt, 946 last?

--> Interested members: @Iyor, @CanadaCal 

 

Please let us know how we can be of any further service as well, sales@skoaktiebolaget.se

 

 

I'm following this closely but I'm probably not looking for a version with the chained norvegese stitching and it seems that the colors that are most popular here (lighter browns or purples/blues) are not what I'm after.  A flat welt version in a true medium to dark brown leather (or suede) is more what I'm after.

Thanks for collating the information.
However, the GMTO I proposed is actually for this model : 



A different model but also a split toe. We had hoped to incoorporate this new skin stitch technique into this model. 
As of now, we have 6 guys, our specs are already down and we are ready to go. But I have been just informed that Bonafe cannot accept this request as of yet. 

When this comes around, and if you can add one more, I'm in.

Just got a response from Gabriel. A couple final things we need to iron out:



Personally, I'd prefer the softer added burnishing, matching sole edge and flat laces,  and can go either way between single leather or having a vibram topy.  Thoughts?

@tdes81
@Dslondon
@Pbayvip

Soft burnishing works for me as does matching sole edge and flat laces. I, too, will defer to anyone who has a preference between single leather and vibram. I think vibram will make them more versatile for *almost* any condition, but would be happy with either option.

Edit - didn't see the summation from Skoak...guess we're good to go and sticking with leather soles, which is fine by me.

I prefer the leather sole if we vote

I prefer the leather sole as well, let's stick with that.

Two new drops from Carmina, or to be fair, one new and one comeback of an old favorite! 

 

Carmina 80092 Famous Balmoral Boot

 

Carmina 708 Snuff Suede Chukka

 

Have a great weekend! 
 

Kind regards,

Enzo Bonafe boots in Tärnsjö Oak / Hidro Jasper on 74945 Last

 

GMTO with @ThunderMarch

 

I wanted a full brogue version of the boots whereas ThunderMarch and our other friend wanted an Austerity version which I already owned 1 pair. We compromised on it being brogue on the long wingtip and austerity on the seam connecting to the suede. Despite my initial reservations, it turned out quite well imo.

 

Gonna be an awesome casual boot. Maybe I could even sneak it into the office rotation on Thursdays.

Definitely my favourite pair of boots now.

Speaking of kudu, I recognise it's more causal than calf. So for the Isham, kudu or calf upper? I'm trying to decide between the 2 and am quite torn. The calf is a 'safer' choice but I likes the look of the kudu and the fact it's uncommon. Do u gents wear this type of split toe derby shoes as part of a formal outfit?

Hey man I personally use them for business casual specially the kudu isham. But I don't see why can't you use calf isham with suit. But once again depending upon formality, but in all honesty I don't think any one would care outside of SF. I suppose you can use kudu isham for formal, afternoon event I don't see a big deal. Other than that I would stick to normal dress shoes at least that's my two cent.
post #22693 of 23683
I will invariably select an oxford over a derby for pairing with a formal business suit.  While it's true that the vast majority of populace will neither notice nor care, it is also true that the vast majority of the populace is utterly clueless as to the conventions and elements of classic menswear.  I don't really want to dress to their standards.
 
That said, the Isham will look far from horrible with a suit, and will easily prove to be better than what 99% or more of that same clueless majority happen to be wearing.  But if suit pairing is your primary goal, I definitely recommend calf over Kudu.
 
It's possible that my calf Thorpes will occasionally be paired with a suit - but it would be something more heavily textured.  I can't really see them with navy blue worsted.  But in the winter I wear a lot of tweeds and flannels in various sport coat / trouser combos and the Thorpes will rock hard there.

@TtownMD @RogerP That combination rocks.

 

I agree with you both. Personally, I'd only pair oxfords with a formal outfit. What promoted me to ask the question were the words  'casual' and 'formal' being used in the same sentence. In this instance, it really is relative. And for my lifestyle (jeans, chinos but seldom suit), I'm leaning towards kudu.

That makes perfect sense.  Kudu is awesome.
