    Any interest in a Navy Suede Loafer. Photo below done in photoshop to show what it might look like. Would need 4 more people. The one is pictured is on the Simpson Last. I recommend Rain Last.

    A cordovan PTB on the Oscar last would be incredible.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks again for making the latest round of makeups such a success! All five style were put into work and have been submitted to Carmina. Can't wait to see how all of these come out!


    Amazing, I love this shoe! Nice PS job too. Thinking a medium brown edge treatment for that? I can check if they have that shape on the Rain last. I imagine that there's a comparable loafer pattern, but I think that split toe might be unique to the Simpson. I'll find out on it.

    And the LAMA leather answer on that Pitti Captoe boot...

    Thanks for your patience everyone, I finally got an answer on the much lusted-after Lama leather. That's the tumbled calfskin that's pictured in this style....

    [​IMG]

    The sampled boot is in Tan Lama, which has way more of a butterscotch tone than the photo would suggest (damn those indoor Pitti lights).

    I mentioned it a few pages back, but the tannery which supplied this leather is no longer in business. The Tan Lama and the Grey Lama (which we used for a shortwing) are unfortunately all tapped out. However, they've got some stock remaining on Terracotta Lama, and they blocked out enough for me to order about 12 pairs of boots. Here's an image of what it looks like.

    [​IMG]

    Now, this is a bit of a casualty of Pitti lighting as well, as it looks more red in this image than it does in real life. Unfortunately, I don't have any natural light shots of this skin. But the name "terracotta" is actually pretty apt for this color, it's a pale, sort of cognac red. A little bit in the Ravello family. It will certainly make up beautifully for this boot. The leather is incredibly soft and it's on the lighter side, so it will be quite wearable in the warmer months, or for guys in warmer climates overall. Let me know what you think!

    Man, I love it. I'd love to see it made up on a plain toe styling like in that pick. Something that really lets the leather take center stage. Also, I like the idea of a boot that I can wear in warmer weather being that I'm in SoCal. That material would make a great chukka.

    I'm only interested if it's a black or navy trim.

    I've sat out all the navy shoes because of the brown trim edge trim (I'm just not a fan, sorry).

    You guys ok with that?

    What about having this shoe made for spring in a tan or cognac?

    I was thinking of doing that too.
    I picked up a pair for $75. Not totally sure about the kiltie.
