    Possibly, though I would be wearing one loden one spice on each foot and then rotate each day

    Worse thing about spice suede is that it continually reminds me of a certain girl band.

    I'm with Mschapiro on this. The spice looks nice. But it wouldn't get as much wear from me. I need a chukka in the beige to brown range. Noix looks great. I could also be into snuff.

    I totally understand. Its not everyones cup of tea but now my mind is whirling around the idea of a 2 tone with spice suede upper and burgundy calf or shell. Prefer captoe. :nodding:

    Sir,

    I'm curious to know if you have any new stock models coming in this season? Any chance for a sneak peak?

    Hi Todd,

    Just a restock of our old models just arrived today (exception of Navy double monk & black 2 eyelet derby).
    Other then that, we have the burugndy split toe in simpson, black cap-toe in Forest, and few pairs of navy shell full strap loafers as well coming in late Fall.

    Also, we will be receiving one or two new models around Jan.2014, but nothing solidified at this point.

    Steve

    I certainly hope so. I think there was a delay with navy shell supply shortage last time I checked. I'll report back as soon as I hear back :)

    In regards to Navy Shell full strap loafers (and jodphur boots, cap toe boots)
    Betty told me that they have received some navy shells and have been working on them.
    She told me that they are almost ready, so we are hoping for early October.

    BTW some of the restock just arrived last night ;)

    I'm wearing the 80250s that Steve sent me a few weeks ago. Great work shoe for any day of the week. I really like the fit of the Inca last.

    Any chance we could do that Noix suede with a Carmina commando sole like this?
    http://cdn.styleforum.net/a/a5/a5ed18b7_-DSC_0784.jpeg

    Makes it a great all around shoe, but doesn't make it look informal.

    Potentially we could ask for a flat heel I imagine.

    I really need a brown boot with dainite or commando sole for winter that's formal enough to wear with flannel or wool dress slacks and sport coat.
