Very nice justin! How is the quality of the suede? Better than carmina? Also, how is the color of tabacco? Is it a lot lighter than carmina dark brown? Thanks!

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.

I'm all for it if everyone there is comfirmed.

How about these specs:
  • Uwing boot model 80387
  • Polo Suede with slight contrast stitching
  • Rain last
  • Tomir rubber sole with thin mid-sole for a dressier look
  • Price is 3200 SEK ex VAT (25% depsoit, 75% before delivery)
post #8465 of 23809

I might be interested as well. Delivery time will be approximately 3 months? And full price incl VAT is 4000 SEK ~ € 430 for EU customers right?

@Leaves do you wear shoe trees with your Carmina fur boots?  They seem to flatten the fur a bit.

Yes I do. No issue with the fur.

Those almost looks better than a pair of G&G St. James to be honest.

Can I make a possible website recommendation? Currently when you sell through a model it is removed from the site, correct? It was be great it they could somehow be achieved into a past makeups section. My assumption is that given the high resolution images you use that this is done in an attempt to keep server size manageable. However, while trying to finalize my Bonafe MTO I keep looking for some older makeups you have done to reference last, colors, etc. I end up having to email Gabriel to ask questions that otherwise I would not have to. I feel bad taking up his time and just thought that if these were cataloged on the site somehow that I wouldn't have to bother him. Just a thought....

I would agree this time, as this would be a good idea if possible.

It's not in order to save space, we have an unlimited account. It's just to make the site more easy to navigate because we have a huge number of styles that are sold out and will not be restocked. But I'll give an archive section some thought.

Have a look at http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/pages/about-us scroll down a bit and you'll see almost all our incoming styles. We have several style incoming in both Polo and Fox Suede.

@justinkapur

Nice! I'm thinking something similar on the 2102B "MH71" last.

Yours has a peaked heel counter?

@laufer & @Handcuffed

I've always liked that boot, but never sure how I'd wear it.

@RogerP

Can you let us in on your MTO specs?
