    Hi All,

    I am hoping to put together a shell wingtip MTO from Carmina to be purchased through Skaoak. Right now, here are the people who have expressed some interest:

    1) Neuromancer8
    2) laufer
    3) easy_golfing (myself)

    Details:

    Last: Forest
    Design: Wingtip with open lacing
    Color: TBD but thinking about dark cognac, cognac (not sure if we can specify?), saddle. Open to suggestions as well.

    I hope you order more of the antiqued brown. I would love a plain captoe Simpson last in that antique brown.

    Which color Saphir polish do you guys recommend I use on the Bonafe chukkas. I'm fairly new to the shoe polishing game so I really have no idea what colors should be used for which shoes. I'm guessing it's going to be either the Bordo or Mahoganny color, but I'm really not sure.

    I would use neutral cream as a base, then a little burgundy polish for gloss and finally some black polish on the toe and heel counter to uphold the antiquing. Once in a while I use a little black cream on burgundy shoes to give it a little patina. ( please not the difference between polish and cream)



    Yes we have some more stock coming in in antiqued, both tanned calf, burgundy and grained tanned calf.



    We have this Austerity Brogue in stock up to UK 12.

    We have enough orders now to proceed. I will be contacting all participants by PM tomorrow. 50% deposit should be paid to Skoaktie direct, I have nothing to do with this.

    If anyone else wants in, they should let me know ASAP.

    Skoak has confirmed the price is going to be 4480 SEK ex VAT (about $669 USD). I believe shipping is 300 SEK, so that would bring the total to around $712 USD.

    Thanks! If I could trouble you once more, what would your advice be for polishing EG's bauxite?
