    I certainly do. I am overstocked on burgundy boots though thanks to color # 8...it will be a beautiful boot if you guys put it together.

    Gotta love SF. Less than 24 hours after we pull together the CC Dover, abd everyone is planning the next makeup. It's a beautiful thing

    I did consider saving myself some money and getting a #8 wingtip. I still may...we'll see.

    This is dangerous. I know.

    Thinking about my first Enzo Bonafe and first Skoak purchase: Burgundy Beauty model 3579 on 2102 last
    [​IMG]

    Can you gentlemen help me with sizing? I have a very high instep and arches as well as wide-ish toes. Here are my sizes in other makers:

    Vass F last: 42F--comfortable and great fit for my instep

    C&J 348: 8UK--too tight on my little toes but length is fine

    EG 888: 8UK but I don't own it. I only tried a derby and that was just in the store for a few minutes. Felt comfortable though.

    Carmina Rain: I tried on a derby in the store, but they didn't have 8UK. The 7.5UK was too small and 8.5UK too big, so I'm guessing 8UK would work.

    Alden barrie: 8.5E (US)

    AE 1 last: 9.5D (US)
    AE 5 last: 9D (US). length and width work fine but AE's balmorals don't work for my high instep.

    All suggestions much appreciated.

    I'd go for the UK 8 because this last fits similar to Rain. But please e-mail us for fitting advice.

    • Which lasts and soles for those two, and what shade of cognac for the u-wing boot?

      Great lineup!

    I am jealous of the wholecut. Do you see yourself ever wearing that with denim? Or is it strictly a business casual piece? (Slacks)

    They don't have a pattern for such a double monk at the moment but they can design one. They have a grey museum calf available, so it is possible.
