    So how about it gents, EG Shelton GMTO on the 890 last?


    That Banbury chukka still looking good too, maybe on the 888 last, in mink suede?



    My wide width will relegate me to the 6th order position... ::embar:

    Wide feet, you say? In the sleeker lasts like the 888 and 82 I'm an F-widtn myself, so why don't you consider one of the suede brogues I proposed? :D

    A banbury chukka would also be very nice, but I just have two suede chukkas already (both C&J, though) in brown...

    Is there any chance you would start carrying Carmina shoes on the alcudia last?

    Lol. We've never met and yet my day is not complete without JubeiSpiegel cursing himself and the shoe gods over his wide feet at least twice/day.

    Which cream & wax do you usually use on the Enzo Bonafé Wholecut in Etrusco Calf?

    Mahogany cream & burgundy/red wax?

    The old color was a chestnut color, the new hue is less reddish, more mid-brown in color. These are hand-finished and the consistency is not always in line with what everyone would expect. We'll be sure to inform clients placing orders if their order is in the "old" or "new" hue.

    I will not reject pearl grey or vintage rioja... but 1st choice is still vintage cherry.

    Either SINGLE Oak bark or wensum sole is good for me

    I'm afraid that we do not have any current plans for the Alcudia last, though nothing is set in stone.
    Small, even amounts of burgundy cream to maintain the reddish tones and depth, mahogany polish to maintain the antiquing. A few layers of black polish on the toe and heel will also help to add more depth to the antiquing.

    We had some questions about Bonafé a while back, when the factory was closed. We have heard back from them in regards of a a couple of these questions:

    Q: Does Bonafé have a Longwing model?
    A: Yes they do, it is called model 2209. Unfortunately they have no pictures of this model, but it is a very traditional style Longwing.

    Q: Does Bonafé have a model that looks like this:
    [​IMG]
    A: No.
