I recall they're also launching this new weekender ..... Their new artisan maker may well be dealing with briefcases and manbags and the like.

Sometime back Skoak's IG had another mystery maker, so could be shoes + man bag

Ah yes, I too remember that post. So yes, maybe both. 

SkoaB has been well secretive. Hehe.

While another shoemaker would be great, briefcases/weekenders/etc would likely be more practical from my end. I could use a decent one of each.

I think it makes sense with their store lineup as well. Shoes, gloves, belt, and now maybe leather goods.

Sure looks like it's bags...
post #21712 of 23837

Appears to be a bag maker IMO. 

post #21713 of 23837
Do you guys think it might be bags?
post #21714 of 23837

Unless they are being very tricky... this is my guess:

Tärnsjö Garveri Icon Briefcase I think

 

Though I haven't seen any weekenders from them before

These are some pictures of the EB black captoe with hidden seams gmto I recently received.
Someone has already posted pics. But I'd like to bring your attention to EB's version of the beveled waist. They term it as Rombe waist. I think it's very nicely done and a perfect complement for sleek dress shoes.
Yes, not as refined as a blind welted waist by top bespoke makers, but still very good.

^^^What they do is that they don't stitch the waist, just glue it. Then it's easier to make it slim. Quite common in Italy, and nowadays many in Spain and Portugal does this as well.

This construction is not called Rombè actually. This kind of slim waist was originally made for the Japanese market and has a different name for their hand welting process since it is only hand welted in the front of the sole (not under the waist). Bombè (as supposed to Rombè) on the other hand is a 270 degrees hand welting process where the sole edges near the waist of the soles are rounded (either on one side or both, depending on how the customer prefer it to look).

 

So customer can have either this Japanese waist or the Bombè. It is just that we have mixed up the terms with Bonafè regarding these details.

 

Please send us an e-mail if any further questions comes up, sales@skoaktiebolaget.se

Hmm, if the waist is not welted, that was certainly not my intention.
And also wasn't what I was led to believe, till now.
The above mentioned Bombè waist, was what I'd aspired towards.
