It is tempting, but sometimes you have to hold out for something you prefer. At least that is what I have been telling myself.

Understandable. What would that be out of curiosity?

I wish you guys were on more of a chukka or monk kick. That is where my attention is at the moment.

I wanted monks in the worst way until I tried a pair on. Just didn't work for me.

Dover, or better yet, Ecton - 606 last, something dark brown, probably dark oak, which I recognize is stock on the Dover. But I like the idea of an Ecton in smooth calf and dark, a little more conservative without the counter, and therefore more formal looking and less sporty than a Dover.

Falkirk - mid or dark brown shade, perhaps country calf. Definitely with extra brogueing throughout, so it looks traditional and sporty.

Some iteration of pig bristle hand-sewn loafers. I would also consider trading a new pair of perfect burnt pine Piccadilly loafers to nab these in case anyone is interested.

Those are the things that I am holding out for and/or mulling that will make it onto my order queue.
I am waiting to see the Heather Gorse Galways to assess the need for more country calf styles.

I do not care much for monks as part of my wardrobe, but their aesthetic is pleasing. Chukkas don't get nearly enough love here, but it is such a casual style I think many shy away for that reason.

Hmm, well I've been thinking about tan monks and brown suede chukkas for awhile. Both seem like classics but still undecided about brands. Burnt Pine Westminsters doesn't sound too bad.

I have been thinking about a burgundy calf Alderley. Storm welt, Dainite maybe.

Chukkas you say? Incoming:
  • Bonafé Chukka in Brown Baby Lama Calf (looks very similar to shrunken calf) September
  • Carmina model 708 Chukka in Burgundy Cordovan, Detroit last TBA

Patrik or Alex, may I know which last is this Bonafe on?  It's done for Ring Jacket.

EDIT:

 

@Skoaktiebolaget @Leaves

 

I'm sizing the Enzo 946 chiseled last the same as Carmina Oscar, right? I wear 7.5UK in that and 8D in Barrie. I'm looking at the 7.5 Enzo 946. 

The general recommendation is to take the same size in the 946 last as in the Oscar last.
