Enzo Bonafe Black Captoe Oxford GMTO - Page 7

post #91 of 100
Hey guys, I've received news. Here it is.

"Thank you for asking but for the hand welted construction Bonafè does, they cannot cut the welt too close to the welt without risking to cut the stitching. However, for the waist area of the soles, customers can request a rounded and more slim construction, which they call rombe. They was originally made for the Japanese market and can be requested on only one side or both (like our Chelsea boot).

There is no additional cost for this."

If there is no objection, I'll include this request for both batches of gmtos?

I am super excited that we are going to include this. IMO, that's 50% of the sleekness of the higher end brands. For example, Saint Crispins does this, aggressively cutting into the waist of the sole by hand. You can see it here from 8:30 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bFt_kKwT04. It is one of the features on Edward Green Top Drawer. 

 

Some of the examples of this I have found online -

Gentlemen,
Seeing that we are approaching Jan 15, I'm just doing a check to see if everyone interested has managed to get their orders in?
Would anyone like me to email SkoaB to ask them to keep the link alive for a few more days?
Though I know they are currently at pitti.
