Love the split toe; trying to hol doff but don't know if i can....

Main differences between the EG Dover and it are the stitching on the top of the shoe (not sure what you call it)?

The toe stitch appears to be the same, correct?

This version of Carmina Split Toe does not have a reverse split toe, which the Dover has. This version was actually developed especially for us, as we liked the visible stitch, like the Italians usually makes 'em.

EDIT: if you are referring to the Enzo Bonafé version, then, yes it's produced in a similar way as the Dover. EDIT 2: I have to confess that I am a bit confused about the construction. Bonafè has been experimenting with different ways to make a split toe, and I've seen many different versions, hence my confusion. I am awaiting a description how this style is produced but alas the good people at Bonafè usually take forever to reply sometimes.

My StC 633 MTO on the Classic last picked up earlier this week. I basically cant describe how thrilled

i'm about these!

 

With these i wanted to find a very subtile grain structured leather in a brown-red tone and in discussion

with Gabriel we ended up going with a leather called TCK039. Not sure if still available still but mine

+ another MTO made it in the last round posted by Oliver some day ago.

 

Early on i considered going with the INC grain but i wanted something with less structure and TCK is

really ticking all boxes with a subtile grain up close that stretches out smooth over the toe. GE8

leather sole + Vibram topy. 

 

Great service from the guys at Skoaktiebolaget as always 

 

 

( IPhone6, no filter, no polish, straight out of the box)

That's an incredible leather.  @Leaves are you planning any more offerings in that this season?
