Well we're both okay with #5 then - but it depends on whether Carmina has a close match to that shade - any darker and I'd pass.  I have the boot below - do not want to replicate:

In fact, if we don't get the minimum for a suede option quickly I'll just take advantage of the Bonafe MTO special and go that route to scratch my suede boot itch.

Would prefer something like 4 or 5 to 3 but it sounds like we're looking for something similar.

Which last is that?


Sir - the box says "2010/b".  This is my first and only bonafe at the moment so unfortunately I wouldn't be much help in discussing their different lasts.  I have a pair of button boots on order that should come in some time late february/march.

@Leaves does bonafe have a tanker boot?

Apologies for the poor quality. I can try and post some more pics when I get home if you need.

Thanks for the reply. Does anyone else have an idea (I'm not familiar with a '2010' last).

@IGotId
I tried on 2102b last. It has very high instep.

I agree. I would want full broguing, no austerity for me. And I am indifferent re: contrast stitching. Whatever the team wants.

It will have to be a limited run though, something like 10 pairs because Alexander does not usually do large runs in the same color.

I think I am in for this.  One question:  what underlying leather would be used?  The boot looks like cordovan.

Well that would be a great relationship and I'm sure you would get a lot of business from all of us!

We'll use a completely natural calf leather, this is the best to use for a custom patina.

Plum? smile.gif


As for the color of suede and this GMTO project. Polo is a new Carmina suede color that we introduced. It's lighter than the normal Brown Suede and with reddish tones. But it's darker than Tobacco Suede. We have 2-3 RTW styles incoming this spring in Polo Suede. But none of those are ready so we no IRL pictures yet. If memory serves me right it's very close to G&G Polo Suede, it might actually be the exact hue. The Carmina Polo Suede is from Steed.

This is G&G Polo Suede.



This is the Uwing Oxford that we made up last year, it's made up in the normal Carmina Brown (Marron) Suede which I think is too dark for this project.


To give you an idea though, I believe it would look quite close to this (this is Shopped of course):


The broguing/pinking has to be the same as the original boot, otherwise they'll have to create a new pattern and Carmina is usually not very keen on this.

@Leaves, How is the GMTO of the U-wing boot with patina service going? Do you have an estimated charge for the patina service? Thanks.

post #8369 of 23674

Would love a pair with Dandy Shoe Care Patina. Not sure whether it would be a bit much though.

 

Some more views of the Siena patina.

I would love to join in on the EB MTO action. Is the model below also part of the MTO? I don't have a ref. number, but the model seems rather simple, except the blind stitch.

Does the MTO also cover different thread colors?
Does EB offer pigskin?

Thanks a lot
