Yes, the can do a single step wide fitting (like a US "E" or Carmina "EEE") on, I believe, all of their lasts. If not all then most of them.

Sure, we'll be able to do any mixture of eyes and hooks.

Some of you guys may know this already, but Ilcea - the tannery who made museum calf - just filed for bankruptcy, so they're out of the game at least for the moment. I had some stock styles on order in that, so Vass is trying to find a new source for a similar leather. It will probably take a bit, but there are other places to do it. But that might put us out to early Spring '14 for a makeup style in something like this.
