    I have a pair of opera pumps in calf not patent. My tailor could not get grosgrain in time so he used satin for the lapels and I got the bows made from similar satin.

    That's interesting. I wouldn't mind seeing a pic, if you have the time.

    Not the best pictures but these are a roundish toe, black calfskin. The bows are flat and satin to match the lapel.
