View attachment 1626144Apron finishing could be better, quarter panel stitching could have been improved. That being said the leather is the star of the show. First pair of Enzos ever, initial try in is man this leather has a soft hand, I’m glad they lined them though, hopefully they don’t stretch out too much. The instep is def generous, perhaps a little too much and I have notoriously high insteps. My toes are a little cramped, crossing my fingers it goes away with break in. Im glad I stuck with my gut on the sizing, had I listened to the whole brannock size down I would have been SOL.
What size did you go with and what was the whole brannock size down?

If you absolutely want to fix them, white paint is probably going to help the most. Personally, I'd probably just leave them, it isn't terrible and I feel like the white paint would make it look worse unless it is a really good job

New loafers from Enzo Bonafe, art. 645 on 363mod. last in janus testa di moro. Very well made as usual with Enzo Bonafe. My first pair on the 363mod. last and I'm impressed with the fit. My feet don't match with most loafer lasts because I have a high instep. So I'm very happy to have finally found a pair of loafers that offers a proper fit. And thank you SkoAB for the perfect service as per usual.

This is indeed the regular dark brown, EB calls it janus testa di moro. I take the same size as 74945 but I only have oxfords and derbies in that last, so no experience with loafers on 74945.

ugh i've been TRYING to avoid looking at these, I own the kingsley in this leather and it is amazing. So part of me is like "well just get em, great loafer, great leather" and the other part of me already owns wholecuts in brown and taupe suede... UGH.

Just got mine, the color looks a bit inconsistent but guess that’s just the property of this leather, very wild, now I regret of using 74945 instead of 363 MOD, figure 363MOD may look better:)
Really nice! Is the 363 MOD more rugged, is that it? I'm new to Bonafe, having only the Skoak GMTO Tarnsjo chukka on the 74945. I've also got this same wild deer leather on order in a split-toe derby from another maker, and I can't really picture how the skin is going to mesh with the style. I think it looks great on your boots!
