    i would prefer the second swatch shown by Patrick; this colour above is just not something I would want in my shoe rotation. Black soles, chiseled last with burnishing = winner

    Ok, I'll go with the flow. Anyways, here's what Bonafe's chiselled last looks like as taken from Skoak's website :

    I'll ask Bonafé if they have a model similar to the one shown above and we'll take it from there. I'll get back as soon as I know more.

    @Namor

    Were you thinking of pinking on the wing, or leaving the edge of the wing smooth like on the U-wing brogue. I'm in favor of no pinking to keep it more like the U-wing brogue with the medallion you photoshopped.

    So are folks trying to organize MTOs for both a U-cap and a shortwing blucher boot on Rain in dark cognac with dainite and a blind eyelet/speedhook combo? Or are they the same?

    Of the details that came up in response to NAMOR's post, I'd prefer the standard Rain medallion and no pinking. But feel free to ignore me, since I still can't decide whether I can live with dainite.
