    I'd at least have an open mind on a black suede shaft - wouldn't commit, but wouldn't reject it out of hand. The navy suede shaft on the blue Galway is pretty dreamy. My ideal is that look, but with a darker blue upper in a bal boot.

    Would need to see what the Bonafe navy calf looks like, though - hopefully on an actual shoe.

    First order from Skoatiebolaget arrived this week. Carmina, u-wing on Rain last. Quick delivery and excellent packaging. Thanks @Leaves

    Super nice LoKey, that is a sharp makeup. And I like what I can see of your coat.

    I just picked up a Skoak box from the post office. I love seeing them bring it out, because I know there is awesome inside.

    The dark brown suede with contrast stitching u-wing model would make a cool boot.

    Thanks @RogerP ! This is my first U-Wing and I'm interested in a makeup as a boot. I've seen a few around here that are stunning. As for the outerwear, here are a couple of more lousy pics.

    You know guys @Leaves probably can check this but if Carmina can obtain Blue Musuem calf I would be interested in U-wing boot, If Carmina does not have Blue Musuem calf maybe Bonafe has U-Wing boot in its archives.

    Quote:Problem with carmina is they don't want to let you know where they source their museum calf. But they probably have it. Although you will probably not know how it looks until they are made. Where'nt you in the carmina GMTO for a 100% calf vegano brown balmoral boot?

    Quote:I think an austerity u-wing boot calls for grained shaft (or what I don't like but still find beautiful on other peoples feet suede). Navy and burgundy, miam.

    Corollary: on a flight to Asia this week via Europe, flew directly over western Ireland and saw on the in-flight map both Galway and Shannon and immediately thought of Edward Green boots...as opposed to, you know, beautiful cities with living, breathing people in them.

    The cities were named after the shoes.

    Hi Leaves, how does the Enzo Bonafe 363 MOD round classic last compare to EG 202 or 888 last? I wear 7.5 888 of EG, should I wear 7 or 7.5 EB 363?
