    Looks like the Suede Uwing is taking off, but we might do both actually. Let me get back to you.

    They do offer pigskin but I have no swatches. There's a slight extra surcharge for this though, maybe 1000 SEK or so.
    They can use different color thread but we recommend the natural thread as this is the traditional style.

    I'd definitely be willing to give that Polo suede a try on the U wing boot. Thanks for clarification that the pattern must remain the same but for material choice.

    This may have gotten lost in the U Wing shuffle. Any thoughts on this?

    ^^^ Nice to see some shell action happening! I'd be all over this if I didn't already have a Carmina saddle shell derby.

    Agreed! I have a saddle chukka so will bow out.

    Love this new model. Anyone up for a tan suede version??

    Look sharp on this cognac shell, don't think saddle shell will work better than that.

    Id be a up for suede for a boot version :)

    Moreso now that the burdeos u wing isn't gaining any traction at all.

    Quote:It's down to personal preference, of course, but I think my saddle shell derbies are just freaking gorgeous. Definitely want to own a saddle shell tall boot one day. Maybe a jumper.

    Agreed. That makeup will look great. Here is a recent saddle batch [​IMG]

    I absolutely love the look of the patina version but I just don't know what I would do with it. Heck, it would be so striking that I would want to put it in a display case and never wear it; but, that might actually be part of my hesitancy as well.
