Holy shit 😳 Good thing I asked. The 325 instep scared me and my initial impression was I had miss-sized. I’m definitely taking your advice of getting them lasted laces open. Thank you.

Off topic; at anytime you decide to unload some footwear, feel free to pm me.....just not now lol. I’m doing 2 MTOs and possibly an Alden preorder 🤦
No problem. You just let me know when you are ready and what you are looking for😉

I know this is peripheral to the assessment of a shoe merchant but I just got a wonderful tie from Skoaktiebolaget. Would nitpick for 3.25" width but the quality and richness of the silk and the drape make it worth every krona (well, Euros). Recognise that this is like endorsing a vendor of bowler hats in this age of open throats, but, oh well.

Yep, definitely interested.

@Leaves not sure if it's a question for you or Solegarb but finally perfected my personal last after like 4 boots. Is it possible for me to use my personal last here? Let me know if this is a question for Solegarb instead!
Hello, well with many other makers the customer owns the last and not the retailer. This is a special case as it's a GMTO too. But I'll have to reach out to Bonafè to check. Please drop be a line to [email protected] so I can check your real name etc with their records.

You're missing some lasts (C?) and soles (commando?)

The colour options are also really weird because the list is below and pictures show the name and style.

Looks really nice though. Do you really stock all the shell colours or are these the ones you can source?
C I'm not sure we will go ahead with as I'm not 100% satisfied with it. Commando sole is missing, yes, did not have a good picture of it.

The list includes all materials available (or that can be ordered) and the pictures shows the most commonly occurred selections.

On a serious note, I'm interested to see how's ridgeway like. I've avoided ridgeway like covid previously only to be told recently that I'm missing out and it's a very comfortable rubber sole.

@Leaves for some reason on Firefox, the category tabs don't appear.

Thanks for checking, I am still debating, I have 2 EB’s in this styles already, I may jump to the L and T instead.
If we have 3 interested I'll just go ahead and launch the GMTO for the Tärnsjö Jumper. We have 15K people in our newsletter, a few of them are bound to jump on board.

It might be. It works fine in safari and chrome on my laptop.

So far it’s myself & @Mrfuzon then possibly @kevenmee depending if his personal last could be used instead

I believe @Encore isn’t in for this GMTO

What do you dislike about it? I enjoyed the fit a lot; it was pretty much close to perfect. Is it the way it looks or the way it fits? It is really chubby, but I like.

The toe box is too low. It’s purely aesthetic. I will make a few oxfords in it and see I my opinion still holds. It might just be the loafer we did as a sample that brings out an optic illusion.

I think it works very well as a loafer - but I agree, it might be a bit low in the toe box.

I think it works great on loafers, but I think it could look even better with a slightly higher toe box.

Just amazing how much effort you guys put into perfecting stuff.

I've got a few make ups in mind, and a loafer is one of them! I might have to wait and see how it turns out:)

Looks great! First time the website works for me in Firefox, too.

Quick question. Is the choko suede closer to polo suede or more of a dark brown? Am not sure from the photos. Thanks!

Choko is slightly darker than polo, and also less warm in color.
