You are on fire!
I know you like your wingtip boots......
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
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.
Thank you sir.
Received my first order from Skoaktiebolaget yesterday....
Who is going to get a Chapel double monk (@Leaves is it possible?) in Grey museum calf by Enzo Bonafe?
Which lasts and soles for those two, and what shade of cognac for the u-wing boot?
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.
If they can do that, Im in for brown or grey museum calf
They look great, Moosic. How do you like them?
Great, so we need just one more participant to make it a go!!
