Underrated colour.. I think I like it more than Etrusco.

 

Would also like to own a Meleze one day.

This is one Bonafe style that I'm considering taking the plunge for. I skipped the EB MTO promotion earlier this year, and while it was not a big deal to me, the seamless and normal wholecuts are stunning.

Someone convince me to try the Bonafe. EGs remain my favorite, but my appreciation for Bonafe continues to grow.

Perhaps you would like to join in our Vitello Meleeze jodhpur MTO?

Hmmm... though I think you might already have a burgundy pair.


Any makeups you have in mind for Bolet?

I am trying to go on a shoe diet :o Not keen on the Jodphur but thanks for asking!

 

In Bolet, I would probably consider a semi brogue captoe derby but was thinking of doing with Josh when he is ready. Other crazy ideas are something with the Betis Brunello / Hidro Schiefer (EB's brogue wingtip oxford boot) though I have no idea why I would need a purple/grey boot.

 

Most recent awesome example I've seen posted of captoe semi brogue is the one by nutcracker in the oakroom thread.

I've been pondering an adelaide or a lazy man in Bolet. That's the calf color I've been most drawn to - just can't figure out what I "need."

Ah crap, the etrusco lazyman GMTO is good to go so I can't do that.

There is actually an ongoing preorder for an Adelaide in Bolet on SkoaB's website. You should get in on it.

Furthermore, I would prefer a double sole (leather or Dainite) and blind eyelets (I believe it is more elegant for this boot).  With or without storm welt (not a problem for me). What do you guys think?

Leaves, are those 10.800 SEK all inclusive to EU members?.  Thanks.

10800 SEK ex VAT. 13500 SEK including VAT.

I think we can only have one width on GMTO. I take E width.

One width only is correct.
post #18222 of 24388

Thanks a lot @laufer and @Leaves.  It is a pity GG only allows one width for GMTO´s, so I am afraid I will not to take the risk going for a E width in that boot taking into account the cost of it.

 

@Laufer & @Montecristo905: No chance at all with an F width?.  Thick socks or an insole are perfect accesories for that boot :satisfied:.

 

@Leaves. I am the one leading the crazy spanish GMTO for that outstanding EB boot in the 36799 last that has been ordered.  If not possible in this occasion, the Thorpe will be the next pair with you.

 

Cheers.

Thanks Patrik. I'll be back for another pair in the right size soon. +1 for great service from Gabriel in helping me figure it out.

Probably not. I have a pair of GG boots in wide width and they seem too large for my feet. I would probably stick with the E width this time.
It does not look like we are getting a traction on this GMTO, so far only three of us are confirmed.
