    For the Enzo Bonafe MTO, deciding between these 2 shoes in Dark Brown Museum Calf. Shoes are on 2 different lasts. Second shoe is the black shoe on the right.

    I have the bonafe adelaide in museum calf sans toe medallion. It is a fantastic shoe. Amazingly comfortable. I highly recommend it.

    Apologies for the poor quality. I can try and post some more pics when I get home if you need.

    With all the talk of the cognac cordovan U-wing balmoral, those who wear 10UK in Rain and want a pair should take a look in the Marketplace. (Not my sale, just alerting potentially interested buyers.)

    I really like the perforated wingtip.


    Which last is that?

    What about broguing on just the U-wing (not the adelaide-ish part) in something similar to mink suede (if Carmina has or could get it)?

    Seems like color is going to be a bigger issue rather than broguing, is there a photo of carmina suede swatches we can refer to?

    I could go for the brogueing on just the U, but not for mink suede, which unless I'm mistaken is dark brown.

    Okay, I have NO IDEA IF THE PHOTO BELOW IS FOR CARMINA SUEDE But it did come up in a Google image search for 'Carmina suede colors'.

    In any event, for the purpose of discussion, when I say I am open to a medium brown or reddish brown but NOT light tan or dark brown, I mean NO to 1,2 and 6 but YES to 3,4, or 5

    Well we're both okay with #5 then - but it depends on whether Carmina has a close match to that shade - any darker and I'd pass. I have the boot below - do not want to replicate:

    In fact, if we don't get the minimum for a suede option quickly I'll just take advantage of the Bonafe MTO special and go that route to scratch my suede boot itch.
