@TtownMD will you be only ok with brandy peccary?
@borbor would you like to join the gmto as well, and if yes would brandy be your choice as well?
@watchidiot what are your thoughts on Bolet with either of the peccary colors, would you be game? I think we are all ok to wait till December.
@justinkapur the makeup is a button boot in vitello bolet with a peccary shaft. Might this interest you? And if yes, do you have a preference for the peccary color?

Thanks all, in advance.
I've been jonesing for Mod3200 in Bolet for awhile as I think it's EBs most versatile color. The button boot wouldn't be as versatile as the mod3200 though admittedly it would look awesome.

Looking at the pictures won't the Light brown peccary contrast too much with Bolet?

@ThunderMarch I believe you have a mod3200 in bolet with peccary facing right? Would you mind sharing a pic in the wild?

Lastly I prefer 2102B over 74945 last just because I have a high instep and not sure how the 74945 fits (yet).

Soles I prefer leather for this make up. Does EB have something similar to Tomir?

That said if you can get to 3 with the above make up please go ahead. I might still jump in depending on what the final make up is.

I really would be open to a split toe or a chukka in peccary.

Hi Justin. Thanks for the reply. No worries. Good luck for your makeup!

Hey there. Yes the contrast would be fairly marked, but I still think it would sit well. That being said, would you be in if it were in brandy peccary?
Maybe@Leaves could shed some light on whether bonafe has a tomir-esque option for soles?
Here is a picture of the 3200. Haven't had the chance to wear them yet though.

always great to have more www.casesam.co.uk options and I've been impressed by Leaves's interaction with the SF community thus far.

Here's another pic of the 3200. This one might be better.

For peccary I would do a chukka, loafer, or split toe.

Any takers on it?

I just hope he's going to open up shop on his own and not be affiliated with a high end retailer that'll drive the price into the stratosphere.

Chukka it is.

Dover is the king of split toe.

I agree that Dover is the best out there. Chukka fits the leather perfectly in my opinion. Needs to be a rounder toe though, nothing angular

IMO, I still prefer suede chukka over leather one.

But this leather indeed fits the chukka make up and I agree round toe will be best.

804 or 363MOD would be best for a chukka. With norvegese stitching?
post #18626 of 23841
I might go against the norwegian stitching on this because I am almost positive you have to go dainite on the sole with norwegian stitching
post #18627 of 23841
What color peccary are you guys doing your boot or chukka in?
post #18628 of 23841
The lighter brown color I would prefer. I think it looks best
post #18629 of 23841
ThunderMarch go for the make up & thank you for including me I feel that may be very close to my current Stcrispin button boot make up sir. And thank you for posting pictures gives me better idea. And watchidiot in future if you want to do the make up you originally told us about on some thing please keep me informed sir.
