B last looks like a great fit for a SpTD. Hawksbill I guess would be a second solid option.

Dark brown like this...?



Though I think black would look fantastic...!



Dark brown in that dark color definitely is what I would select. Black as well is 👍🏻

No. Just...no.
Yes you can definitely use that black peccary on a SpTD.

What's the hawksbill last again? Is it a rounded last? I'm not necessarily opposed to a dark brown color, but I'm sure many know Brown might as well be my middle name so would prefer something else. On this proposed Centurion, I would be looking for a rounded toe. Mayfair looks rounded. Then there's the obvious B last. A modern round would be fine.

About colors again, would be cool if there were a faded black that wasn't too dark. Could possibly add a bunch of black cream and wax to a dark brown leather. Applied after delivery not before.
What say you @Zapasman?
I would be fine with B last/Hawksbill, peccary brown or dark, HAF leather sole and of course Roma line. I am quite open.

Edit: I am for the widest/more width last but prefer the shape of Hawksbill (I might go with an F widht in anycase like in GG).

The premise behind the creation of the Roma line, from my perspective at least, is an entry level line that would be "easier" to make. It would offer customers a taste of the good stuff but contain that AM soul.

With that said, a casual Centurion that isn't as well built should fall into that premise. Consequently a Roma Centurion, not an option at the moment, would be a fantastic opportunity for those interested in that SpTD to get a taste of what the fully featured Centurion has to offer without the high price tag.

Now to further increase the informality level of this proposed Roma Centurion, what about the addition of a contrasting edging? If the upper is dark enough, it would provide a subtle contrast. That contrast should further increase the versatility of the SpTDs being worn with casual to slightly smart outfits.

Forgetting about who the maker is (ZB) but using the colors of the upper and edging as an example, something along the lines of this shoe is what I had in mind.

I'd imagine that Dark brown or black peccary with that edging would work well. A rounded toe of course.

Yep, like that edge colour dressing too. As far as I do not have any relation with AM/Angela, who would be willing to roll this GMTO? I think we can gather +6 members easily but do not know wheather AM will accept it as far as peccary leather might be kept for some other construction or bespoke. We might start asking him whether he sees it feasible and move on?

In the works on feasiblity.

In terms of people interested in that makeup, I count myself and you. Who else was it?

What is the make up exactly? Also even old Argentum GMTO was 12, he wasn’t doing GMTO on argentum for a while too, so if anyone was to propose I’ll say we get maximum fire power before we go

I think this one I don’t expect to get any benefits of a GMTO other than maybe just convincing him it should exist. In though.

Would think we need enough number for him to really just entertain to offer it, else I would think he just think it’s guys who mostly would have really paid up anyway
