    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Whatever works, besides that particular combo just happens to remind me of one of my favorite boots. It's not the exact same color, but it is calf and cordovan.[​IMG]

    Don't mean to jump into a retailers thread, but since it has come up.....


    It was a project I did with Borgioli, and have the same construction coming again from Sassetti in the Spring. The EB here is fantastic - very clean. I will say that Radica/Museum probably wouldn't work for Norvegese/Treccia construction, though...the leather is too thin (almost ladies weight) to handle the work. We even had to delay the current delivery for one Season because the Annonay calf was not sturdy enough (changed to an Italian calf) - and Radica doesn't have nearly the body that a typical French calf does. At least that would be my take.

    Hey Ron! How have you been. It's Matt W the big narrow foot (14-15 extra extra narrow) who has spoken to you quite a bit over the phone, but never on SF.

    Someone mentioned that they thought it was borgioli and thought that you were now doing something from Sassetti. How do you like working with Sassetti over Borgioli? Have you expanded the sizing and widths available for your shoes.

    Wow is the Museum/Radica really that thin? Do you think it could work with a normal thinner stitched norvegese instead of the chain stitch?

    those are amazing shoes. They are my favorite pair that I own so far! The Gold Delapre really feels special when wearing and just moving your hand across it. If they don't get any in you could always do a MTO on it and they even have other shades of the Delapre leather.

    Yup. That's why I unsubscribed to the thread and blocked Bakes....

    You won't be having my enabling services in this thread any longer. LOL

    For some inspiration regarding Enzo Bonafè MTOs check the hashtag #enzobonafe on Instagram, there are loads of Japanese dudes sporting great Bonafè styles. Bonafé is legendary over there. When Enzo went over there last time, people brought their kids to be photographed with him, crazy stuff!

    They're well represented @ Isetan and I can vouch for that.
    Some of my favorites from the Instagram (@Leaves: Can you help to identify for me which last the loafer is on? Many thanks)

    For the last pic, never mind the shoes. That's a great looking coat!!!

    Apologies if this has been addressed before, but how is the fit of SkoABs stained trees for GG TG73?


    Thanks

    This could be the Enzo Galway with a little dip along the sides

    Pretty sure any that mod to the style would incur the 30% pattern change fee.

    Not sure I can accept the 946 as a boot last. Maybe a chukka.

    I'm sure they'd waive the pattern fee to get a lot of orders

    @MoosicPa

    Are those the only pairs of Bonafé you own? How did you size them relative to each other?

    Would love to know how 74945 last compares to 946 in terms of fit.
