Skoaktiebolaget – Carmina, John Lobb, Enzo Bonafè, Carlos Santos, Saint Crispin’s, Gaziano & Girling, Rubinacci – Official Thread - Page 1513post #22682 of 242999/2/16 at 4:57amWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Thank you all for showing such a big interest in this model and the whole Skoak team are really happy with how this model turned out to be. Here are a summary of the GMTO ideas presented so far, to get a better overview and to see if there are any more interested member on SF. Please note that we have to limit the maximum number of participants to 6-8 people for this model on GMTO's, because of the stitching technique. Due to the fact that there goes a lot of man-hours into this style, and only one artisan in the factory can make it, this is preferred by Bonafè. The lead time will be about 6 months for this particular model. More information about swatches, lasts and other details can also be found on our website regarding the Bonafè MTO program:
Vitello Bolet with soft burnishing, 946 last, Single leather sole, Hand welted (270 degrees) with Bombè waist, Matching sole edge, Natural lining
Inca 6127 or Betis Castagna, 74945 last, Millerighe rubber soles, 360 degrees Chained Norvegese construction, Natural lining
Aubergine calf, Millerighe rubber soles with 270 degrees welt, 946 last?
Please let us know how we can be of any further service as well, email@example.com
I'm following this closely but I'm probably not looking for a version with the chained norvegese stitching and it seems that the colors that are most popular here (lighter browns or purples/blues) are not what I'm after. A flat welt version in a true medium to dark brown leather (or suede) is more what I'm after.post #22683 of 242999/2/16 at 5:38amQuote:Originally Posted by ThunderMarch
Hi there @Skoaktiebolaget
Thanks for collating the information.
However, the GMTO I proposed is actually for this model :
A different model but also a split toe. We had hoped to incoorporate this new skin stitch technique into this model.
As of now, we have 6 guys, our specs are already down and we are ready to go. But I have been just informed that Bonafe cannot accept this request as of yet.
When this comes around, and if you can add one more, I'm in.post #22684 of 242999/2/16 at 5:56ampost #22685 of 242999/2/16 at 7:30amQuote:
Soft burnishing works for me as does matching sole edge and flat laces. I, too, will defer to anyone who has a preference between single leather and vibram. I think vibram will make them more versatile for *almost* any condition, but would be happy with either option.
Edit - didn't see the summation from Skoak...guess we're good to go and sticking with leather soles, which is fine by me.post #22686 of 242999/2/16 at 7:48ampost #22687 of 242999/2/16 at 9:29ampost #22688 of 242999/3/16 at 8:41ampost #22689 of 242999/3/16 at 7:49pm

GMTO with @ThunderMarch
I wanted a full brogue version of the boots whereas ThunderMarch and our other friend wanted an Austerity version which I already owned 1 pair. We compromised on it being brogue on the long wingtip and austerity on the seam connecting to the suede. Despite my initial reservations, it turned out quite well imo.
Gonna be an awesome casual boot. Maybe I could even sneak it into the office rotation on Thursdays.post #22690 of 242999/3/16 at 8:14pmpost #22691 of 242999/5/16 at 2:44ampost #22692 of 242999/5/16 at 3:36amQuote:Hey man I personally use them for business casual specially the kudu isham. But I don't see why can't you use calf isham with suit. But once again depending upon formality, but in all honesty I don't think any one would care outside of SF. I suppose you can use kudu isham for formal, afternoon event I don't see a big deal. Other than that I would stick to normal dress shoes at least that's my two cent.Originally Posted by benfpost #22693 of 242999/5/16 at 5:00amI will invariably select an oxford over a derby for pairing with a formal business suit. While it's true that the vast majority of populace will neither notice nor care, it is also true that the vast majority of the populace is utterly clueless as to the conventions and elements of classic menswear. I don't really want to dress to their standards.That said, the Isham will look far from horrible with a suit, and will easily prove to be better than what 99% or more of that same clueless majority happen to be wearing. But if suit pairing is your primary goal, I definitely recommend calf over Kudu.It's possible that my calf Thorpes will occasionally be paired with a suit - but it would be something more heavily textured. I can't really see them with navy blue worsted. But in the winter I wear a lot of tweeds and flannels in various sport coat / trouser combos and the Thorpes will rock hard there.post #22694 of 242999/5/16 at 6:03am
I agree with you both. Personally, I'd only pair oxfords with a formal outfit. What promoted me to ask the question were the words 'casual' and 'formal' being used in the same sentence. In this instance, it really is relative. And for my lifestyle (jeans, chinos but seldom suit), I'm leaning towards kudu.post #22695 of 242999/5/16 at 6:31amQuote:Originally Posted by benf

That makes perfect sense. Kudu is awesome.
