    I am a fan of Norwegian stitching as a few of my bontonis MTO have them. Bonafe looks like a great shoe. Their burgundy looks incredible. I would love to handle a pair in the future.

    Agreed. I love their burgundy captoe, but it is too close to my Anthony Cleverley and the burgundy shades are pretty well represented in my rotation at present.

    Your cleverly are pretty fantastic if I say so myself.

    I'll keep my eyes on the bonafes. A captoe boot in burgundy would probably be up my alley

    Hope your listening @leaves :)

    RogerP's boot in burgundy or a dark brown -- I think I'd be all over it.

    Thanks Justin. I like both suggestions for future boots.

    I was thinking a dark brown color and something close to Polo Suede for the shaft and a chained Norvegese. I actually woke up in the middle of the night thinking of this exact make up so it gotta be good. :) Have not decided for the last though. Round, Chiselled or Soft Square?

    Anyone interested in joining a MTO for Carmina tanker boots in Navy shell cordovan on rain last?

    Below are the pictures of the design I have in mind.

    X-post from the EG thread:

    Since the heather gorse is suddenly back on the table (at least for a few boots), I'm trying to drum up interest for the following Galway make up:

    - A heather gorse/suede combo
    - Shearling lining
    - Veldtschoen construction (which is also to say: last 64)
    - Ridgeway soles

    For the suede combo I'm thinking mocha suede will be good, but I'm open to suggestions. Here's a photo of the heather gorse next to coffee, mocha and mink suede (left to right).

    If interested, please let me know. I've sent out an email to all who showed interest a couple of month ago.

    Cheers,
    SKM

    Bonafe - It looks like Roger has the Chiselled? Examples of the Round and Soft Square?

    My sizes (thinking I would be a 10UK or 44EU) are all sold out or selling out of the current stock! Gotta ordera pair soon to nail down sizing as this MTO materializes!

    Personally, I like the shape of the Last on Roger's boot.

    I just received my Midnight Blue Calf and Navy Suede EG Galways MTO from Skoaktiebolaget. They're even more fabulous looking in person. Another smooth transaction from the people at Skoaktiebolaget.


    Thanks Patrik,

    Beautiful. They threw in the Patek? If so I'll be placing a dozen orders immediately.

    Thank you sir,


    Unfortunately no matter how hard I tried the Patek was extra.

    Oh, and unfortunately the AP didn't come with the boots either.
