I agree. I only have one pair of Carmina...80105 in Marron / lighter brown. The laces don't even seem appropriate for dress shoes. They are more suited to casual shoes.

I hope so. Just three more to go! :)

I am probably in. Either tobacco or spice. Leaning more towards tobacco, unless I can see more pics of spice.

I'm in no rush btw.

Looking good forsan! Cheers! Nothing beats a satisfied customer! :cheers:

Oh man those 5 eyelet chukka on Rain last looks down right sexy. I cannot participate on another MTO myself (after the noix 3 eylet chukka we did few months back) but I am seriously reconsidering haha

 

How about this gents? (@SoGent @Burton @laufer@WiredandTired @Baked Potato)

- 5 eyelet chukka

- Rain last

- Dainite Sole or Leather Sole - TBA

- Tobacco Suede (pictured below)

- Brown Lining (Purple, Red, Black, Brown, Tan are the current available options for MTOs but why dont we place little safe on this on?)

 

 

Cheers!

I am in and I would prefer leather soles.

I know round two of the 973 is about to launch but would anyone want to do the same boot, but in calf and the perforated toe (basically round 1 but in calf)? I need a nice boot but don't want to go shell on my very first one....plus I need to save my pennies to to grab a few new pairs that Steve has coming in icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

+1 but I will go either way. I also will make it known I will take purple lining, but will agree to whatever the group wants for lining.

I was thinking along the same lines: 973, perf captoe, natur marron (dark brown), dark edge trim, Dainite or Tomir or 500 leather sole.

^^^  Good idea to pursue this in calf - good luck with it gents!

 

@forsan - lookin' good!

Mr Six - I gotta have the cognac color...I keep staring/drooling over Rogers pictures and have almost pulled the trigger but I remind myself I have a few more pairs coming my way in the next couple months. I'm flexible on the sole but to me a boot needs a rugged sole and the dainite fits the bill nicely, IMHO. If you are in for a copy of the 973 round one but in calf, we would need 3 more to make it happen!
post #1889 of 4132
Regarding the tobbaco suede chukka: I'm only in if it's done with a rubber sole. I can compromise and go with a Tomir sole (even if I prefer Dainite), but no leather sole as I have no use of leather soled boots.

Golfinz, You would need to check with Steve if they have a color in calf that matches cognac shell. To my knowledge they only really use a darker brown calf color compared to cognac.
