    That would be cool but it would make me hesitant to share my ideas beforehand then.

    That being said, just a few quick ideas. Nothing fancy. Still thinking on interesting button boots / balmoral boots.

    @laufer , its similar to yours. Mine was the 3200 model on the 946 last. I was made to understand that its and E width, hence why I may go for the F width

    The sample of vitello giamaica looks pretty different from this 3202 MOD model. Is the difference not as great in person? The result of finishing by EB?

    Also, which of these is the better representation of etrusco?

    @Leaves re: 946 last, are the Enzo Bonafe shoe trees lasted? And if they are not, would the Skoab shoe trees be a good fit?

    I will be ordering a Double monk in the 946 last and wondering if I should get a shoe tree and which one. I do have some generic ones lying around.

    Re: Etrusco

    First pic! It's a gorgeous color. Goes with almost anything: olive, navy, grey, goldenrod, pink...awesome.

    Etrusco is a reddish mid-brown?

    To what extend does Enzo burnish/finish leather

    Wouldn't a 6F in Bonafe be equivalent to a 6.5E in G&G?

    Yes, but only because the standard Bonafe RTW shoes are in F-width.

    Since this is a MTO, I can order in E-width, hence the size 6.5. I prefer the sleek look of the narrow shaped shoes, looks more bespoke.

    Is the Bracken Museum Calf similar to what John Lobb calls Parisian Brown Museum. I am torn between this or the Dark brown.

    @Ironist

    I love that StC boot. The last looks closer to 804 or 74945 than the 363MOD. I'd even go with the 2102B last.
