    Does anyone have any suggestions for matching belts? Looking for one in melezze or something very similar, possibly Dark Cognac shell later on.

    I have posted pics of my 2102B boots. Nice last, a bit elongated, but pretty soft square.

    @Stefan88 I believe has posted of a black punched austerity brogue on the 062 last, which to my eyes looks like a rolled off 946.

    I personally am sold on 946 and 804 (haven't tried, hoping to try a size 7 and decide my fitting) and think that if either of those fit well for you but are too "pointy" for your MTO design in mind, consider just adding casual details like norvegese, 360 welts, or storm welts.

    If you want it even sleeker, consider a Blake stitched construction instead of hand welted.

    The volume around ball looks immense. I think it may look a bit like a 2012026 in a wider width, but can't say for sure. Best, ask them at IG.

    I don't know if I really hate those tan (natural?) laces or really love them...

    I'm inclined to say I really love them.

    Definitely love them. Make the shoes pop a bit. They also go quite nice with the welt.

    Terrific shade, that Etrusco.

    Agree! It seems it has a lot of depth as well. Love the color and depth. That is aniline dye leather right?

    This is why I'm inclined to like them. They lend a slightly casual vibe to a normally highly conservative look.

    I do like them, they do make the shoes distinctly casual though, especially if the sole edge is lighter brown.
    You can see they look good with the cream linen trousers in the first pic, but in the second, with the worsted light grey wool trousers, they look a little out of place. I will probably only wear those wholecuts with my more casual outfits from now on.

    Thanks, that helps a lot. The balmoral boot shot on skoak's website was throwing me off a bit.

    It is a great shade. I especially like it on that whole cut- one of my favorite shoes I've seen. I think Etrusco has enough versatility to make it a wise start to a boot rotation, although I wonder if Meleze is the smarter play.

    You are most welcome.
    I feel that Enzo's brown selection showcases some really nice shades. Etrusco / Bolet and Meleze all look fantastic and would make pretty good choices. Etrusco does have a slight reddish hue.
    Bolet would also make a good choice for a versatile boot makeup.

    Definitely true, but the light welt already makes them a bit casual. Although definitely not nearly as casual as with the light laces.

    I think they'd look great with navy trousers as well.
