#5 is awesome. Want a chukka in that.
I would want either #4 or #5
Looking at the Carmina belts on the website. Is 34" the smallest size in stock? I've got a slender build and have a 30" waist.
Some great colors there. Love #1, #3 and #4
What kinda specs? I would be down possibly
Hadn't really turned my mind to the deets, but something sleek in a three eyelet. Need to find out more about the various sole options as well.
These are very handsome, but I wouldn't want a sole this thick;
Keep me posted. Suede #4 in a shape like the lama chukka could be really nice as well
Just bringing this over a page for ease of reference.
I also would like to see smaller size belts. I was looking to add one to my order a few weeks ago but was disappointed to find only 34'' + size.
Ugh where were you guys. I proposed suede chukkas and Adelaide a month ago and no takers. Would probably go for a color between volpe and jasper for chukka on Dante.
Does anyone know what Enzo Bonafé calls this color?
I'm considering doing a MTO for this shoe or change the color to Gold Museum calf. I love this shade: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/enzo-bonafe/products/enzo-bonafe-adelaide-in-museum-calf
I know it's not a perfect solution, buty any cobbler can shorten the Carmina belts in a matter of minutes. They are made specifically to have the option to shorten them, like most belts.
Vitello Giamaica. The model shown is a modified 3200 on the 946 last. The modification is the peaked heel counter to make it look more like the St James II. The normal 3200 has a rounded heel counter like on the St James. Also, the normal 3200 has a punched cap toe.
Kinda like this that I saw moving up the production line at Bonafé? Unfortunately not ours. Probably a Japanese retailer.
Thanks for the quick reply, Leaves. Just to clarify, it's considered a MTO whether I change the color or not then? What's the current waiting time for MTOs? How much are lasted shoe trees?
Also, does the normal (not modified model) has a medallion in addition to the punched cap toe?
A 15% surcharge will be applied to any single order. The 15% surcharge for single MTO allows for a lot of customization though, like changing of lasts, materials, slight design changes like medallion and extra punching, but for pattern changes and heavy modifications there will be a 30% surcharge.
Yes, the original model 3200 is an Adelaide semi brogue (punched cap toe with medallion).
