    Very nice. May I ask what outfit/color you'll pair with that?

    Cross posting from the main Enzo thread

    ===========
    Hi all,

    I am thinking of a GMTO oxford in the design of the 1st pic below.

    Upper: black calf (vitello nero) - I am also open to lama in black, not sure how it will look
    Medallion on toe cap, like 1st pic
    Trim: black peccary (colour scheme is similar to the boots in the 2nd pic)
    Last: 804F
    Lining: red goat - I am also open to bordeaux goat
    hand welted
    Sole: leather sole in black, open to single or double
    Laces: thicker laces, like Skoaktiebolaget's ones :)

    Any interest? Pls PM me. If we have enough I'll contact SkoakB. Thanks!

    Great to hear it, thanks for sharing! Agree in regards of workmanship, the price/quality ratio is great.

    Well, jeans for sure and probably a darker grey suit (not plain though) or even a blue suit but that requires some thinking :) - Thoughts?

    Ooops! Sorry I read too fast but a good question nonetheless since I have a tough time wearing green so I am curious as well :)

    Thinking about a MTOing a pair of Bonafe derbies that could do double duty with both wool pants + sport coat as well as jeans. A good travel pair for both day and night. Looking at something in mid-brown and considering either the Oak Tarnsjo or Betis Castagna. What says the group here? Obviously both are great and it comes down to personal preference but fun to hear what others think.

    Not sure yet. While I think the angular plain-toe model (the one that seems to be one of Bonafe's classic designs) is sexy, I'm thinking a more traditional cap-toe is the way to go. Not sure which Bonafe model that is yet.

    I will agree with the cap toe. Makes it a bit more wool + sport coat-able. I'm a bit biased as I'm not a huge, huge fan of just plain toes. I like a little detail up there even if it's just a straight cap.

    Ah .... ok.
    We're headed in slightly different directions then. But good luck with your GMTO plan!

    I do wear a good amount of earth tones like various browns and greens, so I plan on wearing it with those. In the Autumn I also like to pair olive green with some burnt orange to "spice' things up a bit.

    I may try it out with some different grey tones to experiment, but I'll mainly stick with the browns, greens, and orange.

    thank you so much. It was a risk going for it, but St. C did an amazing job at getting the coloring that I wanted so the sole would pair amazingly with it.

    thanks!



    yea it is tough, especially depending on which kind of green you have, but since these are more olive in color, but have a darker toe, what I said above is what I'm doing unless others have some other suggestions as well.
