Just got my tobacco suede rain lasted adelaides, the special manolo make-up from Skoak.
This is the new batch of Tabacco that replaced the one which was initially presented, but then changed without notice to Skoak or any of it's customers. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The color is a bit darker then the original, but has less of the redness and still has a soft brown that looks really nice under natural light. I can see myself wearing these all the way through the end of autumn before any heavy snowfall.
Anyways, here are some pics from my iPhone that I snapped just to give some of the members here an idea what they may have missed out on if they cancelled, or possible future MTOs with this material. The last picture of the bunch is a pair of captoes that I have in snuff suede, just to show the color difference.
Hmm, wow thanks for the pics. I think they need to do a better job with pics for these pre-orders. That shoe looks completely different from the shoe in this picture. And I don't want to be a jerk but the bottom picture's color reminds me of a turd. Can you tell me which picture more resembles the color in real life?
So I just got an email about my Manolo Adelaide GMTO pre-order. Apparently the source for the suede changed and it no longer looks like the original. I'm not sure if I like the new suede and I'm debating opting to take the offer for a refund. Wanted something more like polo suede or more tan. Not sure about this one. Thoughts?
