    Its a matter of taste I guess.. Personally do I think that nails simply just look better... no other reason

    Wohooo Elfsberg, amazing shoes. I don't mean to be rude but may I ask, how much did they cost in Swedish krona and how long did it take?

    Best

    Absolutely beautiful; congratulations on something really special.

    Now, I was raised to believe that talking about money is vulgar. But what is StyleForum if not vulgar? So, dare I ask, roughly, what this wonder has cost you, all in?[​IMG]

    Since I dont know how free/wild you can go with bespoke some of these questions might be stupid :)
    Which model and last (looks like the tg73, but slightly elongated or is it just the size) have you based them on and the hole patterns are those standard or, if not, how do you specify them.
    Whats the name of that color and the special patina?

    Thats it I think :)

    Well.. the thing is that I just booked a meeting with them whilst in London and we discussed and the only thing I was sure of was whole cut and not black. Tony presented some ideas that we tweaked a bit. The color is Vintage Pine Calf and the last is tg73. I've instructed them to go rough on the antiquing..
