    Would prefer something like 4 or 5 to 3 but it sounds like we're looking for something similar.

    Sir - the box says "2010/b". This is my first and only bonafe at the moment so unfortunately I wouldn't be much help in discussing their different lasts. I have a pair of button boots on order that should come in some time late february/march.

    Thanks for the reply. Does anyone else have an idea (I'm not familiar with a '2010' last).

    I tried on 2102b last. It has very high instep.

    I agree. I would want full broguing, no austerity for me. And I am indifferent re: contrast stitching. Whatever the team wants.

    I think I am in for this. One question: what underlying leather would be used? The boot looks like cordovan.

    Well that would be a great relationship and I'm sure you would get a lot of business from all of us!

    We'll use a completely natural calf leather, this is the best to use for a custom patina.


    Plum? :)


    As for the color of suede and this GMTO project. Polo is a new Carmina suede color that we introduced. It's lighter than the normal Brown Suede and with reddish tones. But it's darker than Tobacco Suede. We have 2-3 RTW styles incoming this spring in Polo Suede. But none of those are ready so we no IRL pictures yet. If memory serves me right it's very close to G&G Polo Suede, it might actually be the exact hue. The Carmina Polo Suede is from Steed.

    This is G&G Polo Suede.

    This is the Uwing Oxford that we made up last year, it's made up in the normal Carmina Brown (Marron) Suede which I think is too dark for this project.

    To give you an idea though, I believe it would look quite close to this (this is Shopped of course):

    The broguing/pinking has to be the same as the original boot, otherwise they'll have to create a new pattern and Carmina is usually not very keen on this.

    @Leaves , How is the GMTO of the U-wing boot with patina service going? Do you have an estimated charge for the patina service? Thanks.

    I would love to join in on the EB MTO action. Is the model below also part of the MTO? I don't have a ref. number, but the model seems rather simple, except the blind stitch.

    Does the MTO also cover different thread colors?
    Does EB offer pigskin?

    Thanks a lot
