    Thank you. Mine are in another colour, but the Castagna looks magnificent too. You're in for a treat!

    Oh this is great, another place to spend my money. I'd heard of Skoaktiebolaget before but never pursued looking into it. I find this thread and all the same Alden/Viberg/EP guys are all on here as well. I think I have @bkotsko to thank for this for his cross-post on EP.

    I initially misread "monkey boot" as money boot

    I am in at around this price for lizard MH71 Arran. I don't know if anyone else would pay this much. Also in for your brown hatch grain idea, again assuming Mh71

    I actually really like the MH71 last, so i would be ok with any make-up on that last. We will see how the Arran GMTO pans out, i am flexible on this one, as i plan to get two Chukkas next year...

    Does carmina make anything like the semi broque without the medallion on the toe? I am wanting to order the G&G st. James in oak but would like to see if carmina has something similar.

    No, actually not at all. Was just busting your ballz. Now if it were the NMWA thread it might be a different story...

    Once you spend some time on this thread and see the level of service and professionalism the guys are Skoak provide you won't want to shop anywhere else

    Don't know if Edward Green changes their sizing

    I am a Carmina Detroit UK8.5 Cordovan Blucher. Initially snug fit, well wear after breaking in

    Also a Enzo Bonafe UK8.5 Etrusco Wholecut in 946 last, quite well snug fit.

    Recently acquired a UK9E EG 888 oxford through MTO, no break in required, slight heel slip

    Just FYI.

    @Leaves and anyone else who might know - about those lovely Bonafe braided leather laces - any idea where I might source something similar as replacement laces for some of my other shoes and boots?
