    Is the Bonafé jodhpur you had incoming delayed? It was supposed to arrive in September according to your website.

    What do you estimate the surcharge to be for a two-tone Thorpe? Something like this:

    I'm guessing the MTO price charged is for the more expensive leather.

    Any chance of special ordering a Carmina brown grain wingtip boot with a commando sole?

    I am interested as well.
    - Color #4 or #5
    - would prefer 5 eyelet, but could be convinced of a 3 eyelet
    - Sole I am indifferent


    Would you mind posting a picture?

    Seen quite a few both on Instagram and here and the Carmina thread but the Bonafé Austerity has been absent from social media channels.
    Special EB you: [​IMG]
    Have a loden green pea coat incoming from Corcos. Great minds think alike. :fonz:
    We have a seamless wholecut in Aubergine Calf on the 946 incoming in March. We hope. It's a bitch to make, they needed 6 months to finish it.
    We're stocking it in Burgundy Museum Calf this spring. Kinda bummed Steve beat me to it with that GMTO U-wing boot, but hey, glad that other retailers are stocking "our" style. :hide:
    Great choice, one of my (many) G&G favs.
    Collecting dust in the Bonafé factory, awaiting rubber soles. Hopefully they will arrive this month, here is a sneak peak. [​IMG]
    Is that stingray? I guess it's about 2000 SEK extra, but I doubt that the stingray can be hand sewn like it is on the Thorpe. Please e-mail us for more details on that.
    Next week I hope. We have loads of boots that have been over a month delayed now. :brick:
    As a single MTO, absolutely. Please e-mail us if you want more info on the Carmina MTO program.

    I think you may be mixing up shoes. Carmina makes 5 eyelet chukka, I have not seen any 5 eyelet chukkas from Bonafe.

    @Leaves Wow, those derby boots above look just as good on a more round-toed last as they do on the chiseled last that I have. Which last was used for this pair?

    Loads of EG boots inbound? God help me...

    Ok, definitely a mix up, although I've heard that Bonafe is flexible on details.
    Nevertheless, I am still interested even if we end up with a 3 eyelet one.

    @leavesHmmm, pocket squares, now that's a cheaper hobby; more expensive than socks but much less than shoes.

    I really like that color! Now it's got me thinking of an Edwardian Shannon... argh.

    I believe it was the 363MOD.

    Yes, Galway in RCC (Veldt), Shannon VIII, Alderley... did I miss something? Oh yeah, Falkirk in Edwardian. :)

    You so would have hooked me in if you had those Falkirks in my size! I assume the Shannon VIII are from the first group? I assume my group would not arrive until beginning of next year.
