Very similar to this (http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/enzo-bonafe/products/enzo-bonafe-jodhpur-boot)

had almost an identical makeup in my mind.  

 

it's either a jodhpur or a buttonboot for me.  

 

shame EB doesn't do tweed shafts.

@laufer, its similar to yours. Mine was the 3200 model on the 946 last. I was made to understand that its and E width, hence why I may go for the F width

But not from Enzo

The sample of vitello giamaica looks pretty different from this 3202 MOD model. Is the difference not as great in person? The result of finishing by EB?

Also, which of these is the better representation of etrusco?

@Leaves re: 946 last, are the Enzo Bonafe shoe trees lasted? And if they are not, would the Skoab shoe trees be a good fit?

 

I will be ordering a Double monk in the 946 last and wondering if I should get a shoe tree and which one. I do have some generic ones lying around.

Re: Etrusco

First pic! It's a gorgeous color. Goes with almost anything: olive, navy, grey, goldenrod, pink...awesome.

Confirmed my first Bonafe...paid the 50% deposit so no backing off now :)

 

 

 

 

EB Single Monk, Model 3842

946 Last in E-width, UK 6.5E

Double leather sole, Metal toe tips, Mantegna medallion

Claret Museum leather/Hidro Walnut suede, Purple calf inner lining.

 

I hope this will be a suitable sizing as my regular GG is UK6.5E

Etrusco is a reddish mid-brown?

To what extend does Enzo burnish/finish leather

Wouldn't a 6F in Bonafe be equivalent to a 6.5E in G&G?

Yes, but only because the standard Bonafe RTW shoes are in F-width.

 

Since this is a MTO, I can order in E-width, hence the size 6.5.  I prefer the sleek look of the narrow shaped shoes, looks more bespoke.

Is the Bracken Museum Calf similar to what John Lobb calls Parisian Brown Museum. I am torn between this or the Dark brown.

@Ironist

I love that StC boot. The last looks closer to 804 or 74945 than the 363MOD. I'd even go with the 2102B last.
