    Cap toe will work fine with Cordovan.

    If you keep it polished, a rubber sole is something most people will never notice (particularly black sole on a black shoe).

    It's an unusual makeup but for hard wearing everyday office wear in a wet climate like Norway has I think it could work.

    If it were me I go with a plain oxford as shown in my link........but it's not me, is it? :D

    Thanks for the input, Gdot! I fully agree that a plain oxford is beautiful, but with such a formal shoe I don't think the dainit sole would go. But as I said, it's almost a given fact that they will be a part of my collection by some time. Since I'm also in my early twenties, experimenting with a little more designelements is almost mandatory.

    What's the best way to reach them for ordering? I've tried the email addresses they list on their sites but haven't heard back.

    Thanks!

    I have a pair of ptb's on order in dark brown. I just haven't seen a lot of dark brown shell (not #8, but pure dark brown), so I'm excited to give these a shot. NAMOR -- I'm assuming you've seen this comparison pic on their tumblr... I hope Pepe doesn't mind me reposting here... [​IMG]

    No navy shell, eh? Oh well.

    And thanks for bringing up Meermin over on the Carmina thread. Now I'm going to have to email about the shell saddles they show on their tumblr feed.:) Thinking burgundy or dark brown with lighter colored saddle (maybe even in calf or suede), brass agantine eyelets, some light edge trim, and maybe even Dainite soles. We'll see what they have to say.
