Yes, the original model 3200 is an Adelaide semi brogue (punched cap toe with medallion).

That sounds like great freedoms to achieve what I'm looking for. I may do two MTOs then, one like the original model minus the medallion but in Gold Museum and the other just like depicted earlier in Vitello Giamaica.

 

I guess I'll have to figure out my size at last and then I'm good to go by the end of October. Which size to opt for on the 946 last?

Some of my sizes (all standard width):

C&J (348, 337): UK7,5

Vass (U-last): EU41,5

Carmina (Rain, Inca): UK7,5

G&G (GG06, MH71): UK8

These are very handsome, but I wouldn't want a sole this thick; orig.jpg 

that is a great looking chukka!

I quite fancy the thicker sole for a leather version, but prefer a thinner one for a suede...kind of contradictory but hey, 'people are strange' ;-)

Looks even better here than in the swatch - thanks!

Unlikely that they will do such a style. Glad to hear you like your wholecuts!

The Rain last 5 eyelet chukka fits me so well that I cannot justify any other chukka anymore. I would be open to Adelaide on #4 suede.

I've found this to be true.
 
I've also had a different one trimmed because I bought one that was too big when my size was out of stock.  You could shorten it yourself with a sharp blade and a leather hole puncher available on amazon for $5.  It's not even as unideal as Patrick makes it sound.  Not that big of a deal at all, actually.

#3 and #4 oxford semi-full brogue would be great one.

@Leaves

Does Bonafe have a model like this? Would anybody be interested in GMTO?

Most definately. We actually have a similar style incoming in suede in about 3 months. It will look something like this.
