    I'd love a suede chukka. I don't know about the shearling but I definitely want a suede chukka with Danite Sole and chisel last like the stock model. Probably prefer a brown suede since I see it as a fall and winter boot and tobacco seems like a more summery color. However, I am flexible as I am not sure what choices there are for suede or how the enzo tobacco compares to carminas. I would think there would be two other people here who would be interested in such a staple brown suede chukka :D.

    My feet are naturally warm, so shearling is out for me entirely. I could go for the exact boot Skoak did before (including Dainite sole). I would be open to a chocolate brown as well.

    Nice, sounds like we're on the same page. Is the chocolate brown the same as the double monk? I think that would look pretty good. Just need one more to make this happen before the price increase!

    Great last, great idea. If I didn't already have enough suede I'd be in on this for sure.

    Id really love to see some suede chelsea MTOs happening though.

    I'm probably in for an Enzo suede chukka. I would like to see the available suede options before deciding

    What I particularly like about that monk is the light welt and edge trim with the darker suede. Is that what you had in mind for the chukka?

    I'm not sure if you can even do that since it's Danite. Regardless, what I had in mind was for a fall / winter Chukka since I think SkoAB had a lot of nice spring and summer Chukkas already and I think the lighter welt would give it a more summery / spring feel.

    Well, with three eyelets, a chisel last, and a double danite sole. I wouldn't be opposed to a more brown rather than black edge trimming but I don't know about having a natural edge trim.

    Gents, anyone want to get in on a GMTO for a EG Harrgate, bauxite / rosewood country calf combo? Here is a mock-up i put together:

    I will be going it alone, before the Skoak price adjustment, if no one wants in. I really like this combo...

    Love that Vitello Elise leather. I think I need a chukka in that leather.
