Yeah, detailed pretty well in the last few pages of his thread. Speaks to different lined, price points, test shoes etc

yea i've seen the St. C ones too and they are amazing! I wish EB would try to do some other types of suede besides just the calf suede. Maybe we could try to work something out with them to source it for us if enough went in on it.
yea he is working on getting a bunch of stuff! I'm sure he will let us know once he confirms what else he can get in.
Bonafè mainly works with croc, it's something of a speciality actually. Shark and elephant is very sensitive in our part of the world as there are concerns about how these materials are harvested. So it's getting harder and harder to source and demands a CITES certificate, this involves loads of administration from the retailer every time it's exported outside the EU. Basically we have to issue a CITES certificate for every single pair and not only does this cost us a fee from proper authorities, there are forms to fill out, beauracrats to get hold of, yada yada yada. So we are only doing exotics as single MTOs these days.
Has anyone ordered a MTO pair in Tarnsjo leather from Bonafe? Or do you at least have some pictures of the finished leather?
