Laufer would you dislike Nevis with speedhooks?

I prefer a speed hooks for convenience but I would not hold all blind eyelets against Nevis.

This needs to be confirmed. Sounds like MTO 1 to me but there could have been a change recently.

Come to think about it, since they provide so much flexibility to begin with it's a surprise you don't hear more conflicting information.

It's not a Galway, but I certainly wouldn't question this order either.

 

Sounds fabulous.

 

 

 

So at a rate of one per day until the end of the month, what's next? LOL

Hilarious. Those will be cool.

If something is permanent stock from EG that is carried by Skoak, but is needed in a different width (D) than what Skoak carries in stock, can it be purchased at the current price or not? Thanks

Yes, but it has to be a minimum of three pairs (different widths are ok) of the exact same make up. Also, any style from the EG permanent stock can be made up in a different width without a surcharge. Check out this link (at the bottom) for a list of EG permanent stock:

It's the medallion-less version I was asking about. Like the 80105 but in Rain smile.gif

Just fyi - placed the following MTO today:

 

Enzo Bonafé Double Monk

Last: 946

Upper leather: Vitello Nero (Black calf)

Size/width: UK 10, E width

Construction/Sole: Black "Fondo chiuso" sole with Blake construction (slim waist)

Lining: Red Goat Lining

 

I have for some while now obsessed over the thought that the 946 last would make the perfect last for a mean, lean, chiseled Darth Vader like Black Double Monk, even more so when paired with fire red lining. I generally find the Bonafé welt/sole much too protruding, excessive and clunky (for dress shoes, not for boots!), so since Bonafé is one of the very few manufacturers that offer a high-quality Blake construction, I have happily chosen this slim black and very Italian option that I love for decades now (just look at the slim sole lines on this boot to see what I mean: http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0277/2511/products/Bonafe-Button-Boot-Peccary-01_1024x1024.jpg )

 

@Skoaktiebolaget , thank you so much for your wonderful guidance and support with this!

 

Now the wait...

It has arrived - at Skoaktiebolaget yet, and hopefully soon at my door:

No welts and all blind eyelets. I think you're fine with dark metal eyelets. Shannons and Galways have them.

Thanks for input. Going to go Cloud/exposed eyelets/flat welt.

Any thoughts on the 202 over the 606 for the Nevis?
