Mañana, mañana, they say in the factory (tomorrow, tomorrow).

They will be picked up on Monday and delivered by end of next week.

Herewith a few visuals of the Cortes Adelaide in the Horween Sienna Hatch grain. Great shoes, and the leather goes very well with the model -- far from being smooth, it doesn't give the oxfords a country-look. (I guess this is why I really like @Notch's offerings, with the leathers you will not find easily at other brands, on very versatile lasts)

Pictures were taken with my phone's camera.

1/ from above.

2/ closer look -- look how beautiful the leather is

3/ close-up of the rear, with the '^' in the heel. Very nice.

4/ another look from above. 'A well proportioned and well executed model'
View attachment 1482766

5/ on my feet, good fitting properties for my feet (close to snug)
Always hard to shoot well from this angle by the way -- my ankles are not that swollen in reality :cool:

Thanks for looking, and hope others that ordered this model are equally happy.
how do you pair overall, I always like the idea, but oxford+grain is formal+casual, so never sure what I would wear exactly (and I would probably prefer a bit darker and less red than this)

i anticipate wearing these under green, brown and probably even blue cords and maybe linens.

I haven't thought about that yet -- the home office and weekly expedition to the supermarket doesn't require much thinking regarding matching styles. As @Proleet already indicated, I guess this Sienna colour will look great with various shades of brown and green, maybe even with some hints of grey. In particular when the fabric has a little texture as well.

The update on Vekla isn't about sneakers :), it's about our next project.

For the sneakers, I have additional samples coming in next week (a new, high quality calf leather from Conceria Dani that I'm testing). New models will be available starting next Spring.

Different company than EG but same idea, courtesy of a cross post. This one comes in a black Scotch grain leather which would have a more pronounced grain compared to Utah. A nice leather pull tab as well. 4 speed hooks, 4 eyelets.

@Notch any chance of putting on a faux Norwegian Welt on a Storm welt construction 😁?

But Tom it is spring (at least down here in the antipodes).
