    Checked your pic again on my laptop screen, now I see some more difference between the left and middle shoe [​IMG] I'm not sure I'd like it that dark though.
    I think the colour below is about the darkest brown for my liking, although I think the EG dark oak looks a little better.

    I'd be interested to see the pricing, given that croc is priced like gold these days. But in addition to the navy shell wholecuts I do have a pair of navy suede chukkas and also a pair of navy museum Vass austerity brogues on order - so I'm settled in the blue shoes department. Still want to get a blue tall boot for the fall, though.

    I'm still somewhat torn between that and a Vass navy wingtip brogue - basically the ankle boot below, rendered as a tall boot:

    I've always been intrigued by Vass, but I'm too worried about the sizing. There's nowhere in Toronto that handles them.

    I am in the same boat as you my friend. I have a pair of Bontoni navy suede, Bontoni navy double monks, and Carmina shell loafer. I would consider like Noix suede with croc detailing. Might be an interesting pairing for sure.

    I don't even think they'll be that expensive. Crocodile isn't priced extremely, gator is. I've read somewhere that Carmina charges about 20% more for crocodile than they do for shell. Since it's only a small piece, I think the pricing should be quite reasonable, considering they can easily use scraps and hides with faults that can't be used for wholecuts. If they keep a realistic surcharge that is.

    I have a question regarding the Galway Veldtschoen in Rosewood Country Calf:

    Are shoe trees included? If not, is it possible to order lasted shoe trees from Skoaktiebolaget?

    I have seen noix suede in person and love the look but have wondered how and where I would wear a shoe that light. Blending in darker croc might make it a bit more wearable for me.
    Good points.

    Still a little bit reddish but that'd work for me.

    Yeah, I agree. It's not really brown brown, but it's not too much red either. Wonder what the possibilities are when Leaves returns from his trip [​IMG] Really hoping something like EG's dark oak can be realised.
    Still need to rack up some more info, especially on sizing and shaft/boot height. But so far I'm digging it. Seeing the popularity of the jumper (and Carmina in general) boot, the lack of a brown relatively plain derby boot, and the versatility of such a makeup, I think a GMTO could be done.

    Gentlemen,

    I am considering a Carmina MTO of a Jumper boot on Oscar last, storm welted on Commando sole, in black shell. Would anybody care to join in? I had a few rather uncommon details in mind such as purple or lilac lining and brown midsole, but this can be discussed.

    The quoted price of single MTO is 6840 SEK.
