    I asked Richard about cordovan and Tricker's. He said they source theirs from Italy and maybe Argentina too.

    There are no tanneries that produce cordovan, that I'm aware of, in Australia.

    Cut & Paste......... Ok guys, still looking for more people to join this this slightly different Eaton MTO. Big thanks to rkusmant for offering to help organize this. [​IMG] [​IMG] Pretty much exactly as in the above pictures but with the following changes, Eyelets, Full Brass Eyelets all the way. Sole, Dainite Sole in Black. I think the Burgundy Burnished colour is just beautiful. Lets make it happen! You in then randomkoreandude? Shaun.

    PM me if your interested!

    I'd be up for an Eaton in a redder burgandy like these.
    Brass eyelets, natural welt, dainite.

    fresh out of the box (after a quick re-lace)

    Rippon boot in burgundy, a different burg than Tom LS's burgundy Stow boot which is a darker color, this one is lighter and a bit more red. will look the dogs nuts after a quick polishing/antiqueing tonite. Commando sole, brilliant boot for stomping on the bones of your enemies

    Sinnedk, post up the roy boots that you mentioned to me.

    Orangegoose, zippyh,
    I'm down for burgundy, what if we have perforated cap toe without the medallion details? I mean real cap toe not like plain stitching around toe box.
    Vibram 269/ thinner rubber sole plus heel, more like modern service boots

    I really dislike the vibram/gumlite sole.
    Captoe with no medallion would be okay.

    Sorry, could you explain this to me (medallion details?) - visual example would be great. Do you mean get rid of the broguing? Surely thats the best bit!

    I'm really not into vibram/gumlite sole's there too light, stick with the dainite!

    LW shoes folks, we'll use 81 Last instead of 4497 Last, that's what's avaiable, it's not practical to switch last since the leather pattern might not be compatible
