Leaves, do you recommend same sizing for Detroit as I take in Rain?
^ that is what they just recommended to me. I got 8.5UK in Detroit and 9UK in Uetam
It looks like we have enough people to go ahead with this order as detailed below. If anyone else is interested, feel free to contact me.
This Bonafe model, with double rows of stitching and a row of stitching by the eyelets (as in the other boot pictured):
- Dark brown calf upper/dark brown grained calf shaft
- 2102 soft chiseled last
- Norvegese welt
- Natural sole edge
- Regular width
- Double leather soles
Boot: 5,700 SEK including VAT / 4,560 SEK ex-VAT + 300 SEK shipping
Optional metal toe taps: 500 SEK including VAT / 400 SEK ex-VAT
I'd love to stock more large sizes but unfortunately everything above UK 10.5 sells really slow and because of limited storage capacity we have to prioritize.
Yes, I recommend using the same size for Detroit as for Rain and Soller.
Any traction on the BBBB - (Burgundy Bonafe Bal Boot)??
BBBB had a few interested parties but hasn't hit the 3 commits needed for GMTO yet.
^^ I'll be in on one of these I think...dunno if I want brown or burgundy....how does the last fit? Will it fit similar to the 946 chisel toe?
I'm assuming so but this will be my first bonafe - @Leaves can you please advise on the fit of 2102 as compared to 946?
I'd commit with a strong preference for Burgundy and chain stitched Norvegese only (not the rows of stitches). I think sizing in this last is to go with the Carmina Rain equivalent (which I don't have either)...
RogerP you in???
I may have lost some of the back and forth, but I am in for a boot version of that shoe in all burgundy calf, no medallion (though I am okay with a medallion) no Norvegese stitch - chain or otherwise (I think it rocks on a casual derby boot, but not on a dress boot). Black sole with beveled waist. I'd be interested in a haf-type sole if they do that sort of thing - just gives the boot that extra bit of elevation out of the winter muck.
So far I think it's only @etostano and me down for that particular configuration. Anyone else, holler loud.
The good thing about Bonafe is that the MTO premium is not that steep at all - I don't want to brow-beat anybody out of features they really want. If we don't get three on this, I'll still go for it on my own. And I'll probably look at your chain stitch version and think it's its own kind of awesome.
Leaves, could you post a "live" picture of Carmina's snuff suede directly next to the doeskin? I recently purchased the snuff in a tassel loafer, so I'm wondering if the doeskin is too similar and would be overkill. Thanks very much for any pics and your thoughts.
I was actually in line to buy that shoe upon restock... If I really like a shoe, I would tend to like a boot equivalent even moar!
Patrik, what are your thoughts on the Burgundy Beauty with or without a medallion in boot form - as you're probably the only who's seen the shoe??
I really want those Tobacco chukkas...But after just suede spraying a pair of snuff suede wingtip boots and a pair of snuff suede PTB's I cannot help but feel like the chukka is a bit redundant...Yet, I really want it.
looks like someone just snagged the 7.5 during my agonizing
