    Thanks. They had a nice selection of textured leathers in green/olive (including green hippo), but I went for the llama again.

    ¥24K JPY (~ $240 USD) upcharge for llama skin. Not so terrible

    I'm jelly, not usually a fan of slip ons but they look fantastic.

    That is one of the more beautiful shoes I've ever seen and I normally really am not a fan of green.

    Thanks fellas! :fonz:
    Yeah, it is an unusual shade of green, but it came out surprisingly good on loafers. Kudos to Spigola for pulling it off.

    The finish... involving perfect sewing is what I like about Spigola. [COLOR=A74345][​IMG] [/COLOR] These look very 1920s USA. I would like to see them from above.
