    Both models are really nice, I picked out that Bonafé model myself, it's an old archive model. I was supposed to meet with SC during their visit to Stockholm but something came up. Hopefully I will see Phillip the next time he visits.

    The Riva last is best suited for plain toes and maybe the occasional wingtip, but always only if there is no toe-medallion. For example a Chukka on the Riva is nice, or a monk wothout any decoration in the toe area. In other cases go for the classic. :)

    I'm a sucker for a classic look...drooling over these. St. Crispin's classic last is timeless and absolutely gorgeous, IMO. StCs are totally out of my league! [​IMG]

    That's what I ordered only in black shell. Mid July, apparently.
