Is the Bonafé jodhpur you had incoming delayed? It was supposed to arrive in September according to your website.

@Leaves

 

What do you estimate the surcharge to be for a two-tone Thorpe? Something like this:

I'm guessing the MTO price charged is for the more expensive leather.

@Leaves, any idea as to when you expect your latest shipment from EG to arrive?

Damn, those Thorpes are amazing!!!

Any chance of special ordering a Carmina brown grain wingtip boot with a commando sole?

These are very handsome, but I wouldn't want a sole this thick; Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I am interested as well.
- Color #4 or #5
- would prefer 5 eyelet, but could be convinced of a 3 eyelet
- Sole I am indifferent

Would you mind posting a picture?

I want to see what I missed out on smile.gif

Seen quite a few both on Instagram and here and the Carmina thread but the Bonafé Austerity has been absent from social media channels.

Have a loden green pea coat incoming from Corcos. Great minds think alike. fing02[1].gif

Now seriously people let's whip up some 946 last GMTO.
Where are those people with Darth Vader wholecut, post some pictures to provide inspiration.

We have a seamless wholecut in Aubergine Calf on the 946 incoming in March. We hope. It's a bitch to make, they needed 6 months to finish it.

We're stocking it in Burgundy Museum Calf this spring. Kinda bummed Steve beat me to it with that GMTO U-wing boot, but hey, glad that other retailers are stocking "our" style. peepwall[1].gif

Collecting dust in the Bonafé factory, awaiting rubber soles. Hopefully they will arrive this month, here is a sneak peak.

Is that stingray? I guess it's about 2000 SEK extra, but I doubt that the stingray can be hand sewn like it is on the Thorpe. Please e-mail us for more details on that.

Next week I hope. We have loads of boots that have been over a month delayed now. baldy[1].gif

As a single MTO, absolutely. Please e-mail us if you want more info on the Carmina MTO program.

I think you may be mixing up shoes. Carmina makes 5 eyelet chukka, I have not seen any 5 eyelet chukkas from Bonafe.
post #4990 of 24298

@Leaves Wow, those derby boots above look just as good on a more round-toed last as they do on the chiseled last that I have.  Which last was used for this pair?

 

Loads of EG boots inbound?  God help me...

Ok, definitely a mix up, although I've heard that Bonafe is flexible on details.
Nevertheless, I am still interested even if we end up with a 3 eyelet one.

@LeavesHmmm, pocket squares, now that's a cheaper hobby; more expensive than socks but much less than shoes.

I really like that color! Now it's got me thinking of an Edwardian Shannon... argh.

I believe it was the 363MOD.

Yes, Galway in RCC (Veldt), Shannon VIII, Alderley... did I miss something? Oh yeah, Falkirk in Edwardian. smile.gif

You so would have hooked me in if you had those Falkirks in my size! I assume the Shannon VIII are from the first group? I assume my group would not arrive until beginning of next year.
