Found this Lobb on the Leatherfoot page.
It's museum calf. Would this be an accurate representation of the colour?

post #2057 of 7018
Yes, they have dark brown, plum, gold, and green (maybe others, but I know those off the top of my head)

Deposit paid! Now begins the mother zugging wait...

That's a very interesting material actually. Would be nice to see the prototypes when they are released.

Sounds very GOOOOD!

Patrik, can we approach enzo bonafe to see the possibility for two black and one burgundy? All other details are the same and I believe leather in both colour is stock item.
post #2062 of 7018
I would be in if the above is possible. Basically just switch the black for burgundy.

If they are satisfy with the result, I would propose a JL Chapel style double monk in Gold or Plum museum!

I would second the above recomendation

Here is Ilcea Museum Gold on a Vass Old English II.  Beautiful leather, IMO.  I hope Bonafe decides to run with it.

^ If they have it, I'll go for a bal boot.  MTO fee be damned.

Just did MTO of this model and in that leather but with a few tweaks...can't wait to see the final result.
post #2069 of 7018
I do believe (RogerP can correct me) that that leather is from the old supplier that went out of business, the new companies leather looks slightly different (lighter)
post #2070 of 7018
Yes, though I read someplace the Ilcea is being revived, Vass presently sources their Museum calf from a different supplier.

Even for Ilcea, mine seem to have more of a reddish undertone than is the norm.
