    I would probably be interested in the above suggestion (assuming 2030 or 2040 last). I would also be in for the same but with cap toe and/or leather soles instead of Dainite.

    Out of curiosity is there a rough-out version of the Tan Bison (it seems that most of the smooth leathers have a rough-out equivalent)? I realize that reduces some of the uniqueness provided by being a grained leather but am curious anyway.

    A plain toe on the 110 with the vibram 2030 is significantly different than on the 2030 with dainite. Both would look great but would give two very different looks for the boot. With the 110 last switching to the scout (a little change up on the lines) would look incredible. If sticking with the 2030 or 2040, I would say service with dainite.

    Mainly What I am saying are these makeups would be sick

    Scout boot (scout would look way better in this makeup)
    plain toe
    110 last
    vibram 2030
    6 Internal Eyelets (no visual metal on the surface, like in the sample pic)
    Unstructured toe
    Cut top


    similar in color scheme to this http://www.freemanbrand.com/storage/journal/2013/07/RO Chukka.jpg except no roughout and in 5"

    or

    Service boot or scout boot (I am open, I like both designs in this model)
    2030 or 2040
    10 Brass eyelets, no hooks (will they still make 10? I would like imbetween 7-10 but I know it takes a bit to rework their machine to do it and I do not know if that sort of configuration, 8 or 9, is possible. I saw back they had determined the best configs on eyelet numbers which I do not remember so if it is a choice between 7 or 10 I would say 10)
    unstructured
    Black chromexcel tongue
    Dainite (Black and tan colorway, color me sold)
    Plain toe
    Rolled top
    Black Leather laces or flat black waxed laces, either way I would like 90" laces due to the extra eyelets and I would like to wrap

    Something like this
    http://vibergboot.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/tan-bootfinal.jpg
    But unstructured toe.

    And obviously everything with Tan bison

    I wish more people were amenable to scout make-ups :( I can't understand the overwhelming preference for the service boot.

    Is it just the leather paneling that's different?

    especially these collapsed toe service boots! Pretty boring if you ask me.

    Most of the difference is easily noticeable from the paneling.

    Scout

    Service
    http://www.selectism.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/viberg-boot-freemans-sporting-club-1.jpg

    But what I find to be one of the larger difference no one points to is the difference in stitching of the vamp to the quarter.

    In the scout boot the vamp is on top of the quarter, giving it a more substantial feel to the toebox. It is much different than the look you get with the service where it is the opposite

    Here is a good comparison on the same last as the last has a large effect on noticing this.

    Thanks! Scout boot just looks more stubby IMO.

    That's the size (that scout boot looks like a size 7 or something. My size 10 scout boots don't look that short at all), and the last. That service boot looks to be on the 2030 last, while that Scout boot looks to be on the 110 last. So, smaller size, rounder, wider last = stubbier looking toe,

    So, here are the leather samples:

    In order:
    English Tan Essex (Horween)
    Tan Bison (Horween)
    Aged Bark (Seidel)
    [​IMG]

    For these next ones, the color balance on my monitor is off, but they look great on my wife's, so adjust until the Loden is dark green, nearly black, and the tumbled burgundy is nearly lollipop:

    In order:
    Loden Green (Horween)
    Navy Latigo (Horween)
    Tumbled Burgundy
    [​IMG]

    Let's start working with these.

    Right now, I have 2 makeups in mind:

    1) Tan Bison Service boot with 8 antique brass eyelets, 110 last, natural single leather midsole, beige Vibram 2060 outsole.

    2) Tan Bison Service boot with 8 antique brass eyelets, 2060 last, natural single leather midsole, dainite ousole.

    I am more in the camp of the first, since we've already done 3 boots on a dainite sole, and it seems appropriate to do something less "dressy" on a wedge sole, but I'll let you guys discuss it out.

    Remember, for this round, we will probably do 2 boots, or 3 only if I can get enough commitments during the voting process.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Oh man....I really like that Aged Bark. Was hoping the Tan Bison would be a little more brown.

    Are we throwing around the chukka still? I think chukka on a 2030 last looks fantastic

    English Tan and Aged Bark are gorgeous, anyone got ideas using either of those leathers?

    I would still love to do a chukka. I had suggested the grey roughout with Dainite sole, but I think the English Tan would make for an invredible chukkas as well. My other thought was an Oxford with a Vibram Chisty sole. I also single a single leather sole could be great on either the chukka or oxford.

    Looks like the English Tan will age & get darker, like those vegge tanned leather. But, not the Bison Tan.

    Aged Bark looks similar to Icy Mocha? Aged Bark may look good in the oxford.

    That looks magnificent. I'm well up for a boot based on that and/or English Tan.

    It's a really good golden brown color.

    We are still throwing the idea of a chukka around. The chukka, imo, is a highly underused model. And agreed that it looks terrific.


    I would say a Vibram sole. As a balance between function and aesthetics, I can ask Guy about other Vibram soles. The Vibram "oxford" sole, for example, which I have on a pair of Trickers MTO chukkas, has a heel and looks more like a regular sole. On my chukkas, they look really good, and are also water resistant and have good traction (unlike leather) and are really lightweight. We'd also possibly have options for colors.

    Loden is definitely not grey. It's dark, dark, green - nearly black. If I had to describe the color and hue, I'd say that it was super dark moss colored.

    The Bison tan will also get darker - all leathers do. Pretty much any of the leathers would look good on an oxford, though Aged Bark would be most typical for that style.

    Our picture is more accurate than either of those. It's a straight up mid brown with some red, but not as much as seen in the Tate&Yoko pictures, and not as light as in the Viberg pictures, which look like they were taken under bright sunlight.

    If you want that lighter color, I'd say to go with the English Tan, which, honestly, is what those pictures most resemble.

    I also think so!
