    By Adelaide I assume you mean the Alcudia last?

    I'll have to look into sizing on those a bit more, if I recall correctly those are both narrow lasts? I'm usually on the slightly wider side of normal, not extreme mind you, but enough to make it so I would have to adjust sizing for narrower lasts.

    Sounds good to me. Perfect for Bay Area winter, too!

    I'd prefer all eyelets and just plain calf.

    guys so where are we at in terms of this ruby shell? it seems exotic and amazing and I would love to see what we can come up with to hopefully get the ball rolling on it.

    Ruby shell - split toe derby??

    What happened to the plans for these by the way? Would look very nice in navy calf...

    This might be a bit too similar to the Scotchgrain bal boot for me, but it still sounds like it's shaping up to be a beautiful boot.
    I don't think anything concrete has been decided. We've tossed around a few ideas, but there hasn't been a consensus on any one design (let alone the last and all that), or even if we want it to be an all-out crazy shoe, or a conservative shoe in a wild color. I'd still love to see a single monk, but would totally be down for a pair of oxfords. Maybe Mike can take the reins on this one.

    Edit:

    It's just personal preference, but I hate split toe shoes; my vote goes against that idea, but we'll see what everyone else thinks.

    Ooh, you just reminded me that I would (possibly) kill for a ruby plain-toe wholecut.

    It would look very similar to this (in burgundy shell on the Rain last):

    I think a simple open lace derby or loafer would work great or even a classic monk strap. Red is a casual color best suited for a "less professional" style of shoe. This is def not a color that you'd wear with a suit. Oh yeah... [​IMG]

    Yup, I love it! Wholecuts actually first appealed to me when I saw The Armoury's tan Carmina on Inca:

    I don't like Rain, but would love a wholecut on Inca, Forest, or maybe Robert.

    Love this shoe. I thought Epaulet was going to stock this shoe in black calf on one of their next shipments.

    For the ruby shell cordovan, in a effort to get more pairs of shoes out of the stock, perhaps a spectator wingtip, with burgundy (or similar to the ruby) color suede. Something like the Gaziano & Girling pictured below. [​IMG]

    I'm prob in the minority, but I think it'd be much better to wait for the whole shoe if the shell is that rare.
