There's just got to be one more soul wanting such an awesome boot!

Of course you could, if it's black, or burgundy. I recently ordered a button boot in Black Calf and Lino Suede with horn buttons. I imagine it will look a lot like this when finished (but with a plain cap toe):



I plan to wear it with business suits almost exclusively.

Hmm... Those black ones do look fancy...

Which G&G last is that last most similar to?

The Button Boot pictured with the peccary shaft is on the 2102B last. This last looks very close to the G&G MH71 last. But it fits closer to Carmina Rain. The Button Boot RogerP is organizing a GMTO for is on the 74945 last. I'd recommend you wear a UK 11.5 in this last, you being the same size as me. The 74945 is a great looking last. It's chiseled but has a round toe. Quite conservative but with an edge.

Polling interest on a Gaziano and Girling GMTO: Gable in Deco black calf on MH71 standard width. 

 

At first glance these shoes are a staid, captoe business workhorse, until you notice the v-cap and the stitching in lieu of broguing.  An understated yet definitive alternative to the Adelaide style.

 

Deco black would have a blanched toe compared to "normal" black.

 

We have three on board, and we are looking for at least two more.

 

Be the envy of the office!

Yes, I got an invoice from shipper for customs after delivery.

Think that could be the tits in museum bracken.

I'd love to see a Chelsea in Bracken or Chestnut museum with a fatigue green or reddish brown elastic. I'd want the 2102B last, though.

Really? You got an invoice from usps? Received invoices from everyone but the post office.

Well that is what @newyorker and I going for, 2102 last on Bracken museum but I am not sure about green elastic. Are you interested?

PS there is no 2102b last, the b was typing error, just 2102

I don't think I would be in for the green elastic. Reddish brown sounds like it would match up nicely. As for last I only have one pair of bonafe shoes so I am ok with whatever the suggestion is. I have pretty average feet.
post #6102 of 23814

Hey @Leaves, I was wondering, since I'm flat footed, which of the shoe brands have a rather good stiffener on the side of the shoes and a rather deep foot bed so I can take the insole out and stuff my insole in? Because if the foot bed is too shallow then when I put an orthopedic insole in, the instep rises so high I probably won't be able to tighten the laces properly and end up with a huge V, not to mention a whole lot of painful walking.

Thanks in advance!

I'm intrigued.

Sole options: Millerghime sole like on the current Jodhpur boot? Sleek and still rubber for grip. Could even do single Dainite.

Let me think about this. I wasn't planning on a Chelsea, but with two pairs or Bonafè, I'm now a fan.

Anyone game for a Norvegese wholecut on the 946 like the shoe on the left, but in a chestnut or gold museum calf:

EDIT:

@laufer @MRMstl

Have you guys seen Carmina's Jodhpur, with the buckle down by the ankle? I think that looks slightly better, as the buckle would be visible below the cuff.

Any chance the other two would switch to the mh71 like last?

Other way around. There's no 2102 last, only 2102B.
