    Seconded. Skoak should get permission to use those pics of the "burgundy beauty" - hadn't realised the depth of the colour from the shots on their site, but when I see it there they look absolutely amazing. That's the rich burgundy colour I want when I finally get a burgundy shoe.

    Note to self: make another effort to try on something in Carmina Rain so you have a better idea of whether those things will fit well or not (I'm not hopeful unfortunately, my feet like long slim lasts not roomy lasts).

    It's an incredibly handsome shade of burgundy.

    Cheers, gentlemen. Skoak's pictures are great, but these are a wonder to behold in person. Here are some additional pics in different lighting.

    Gorgeous. I want to MTO that with no punching or brogueing but for a punched captoe. Same last, same color. Anyone? (Also open to the stated design with claret museum calf.)

    Would you design the burgundy shoe something like this? Obviously with a captoe, no medallion.

    This model doesn't have a punched captoe, but I like the other punched details on the heel. I think it would look amazing with a captoe and in the burnished burgundy.

    Hmmm based on how you described, I might also be interested.

    I really wanted to do that makeup in a brown. Either museum calf or just plain chestnut brown. 2102B last or 804 last both look really cool.

    I don't know whether some were interested in what I proposed or are now in on a different GMTO idea (which is great) but I suggested essentially a version of the Burgundy Beauty with no punching or brogueing other than the captoe being perforated. Same last, same color. Think G&G Cambridge or Lobb Phillip Two. Only it isn't.
