    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.

    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

    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.

    For further specific MTO queries please email sales@skoaktiebolaget.se

    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??
