    Brown Dainite works for me, and I would definitely prefer the navy calf over the pebbled.

    Brown works for me.

    Either smooth or pebbled works too.

    Hi All,
    trying to revive the white calf bourton MTO with contrast pink suede heel counter.

    I was in grahme fowler today and they have this a white calf bourton and it looked awesome...i think that pink suede counter would be an awesome pop.

    In revision, I actually think this would work better as on a stow boot, that way the pop is a little smaller in relation to the whole of the boot. add a pink pull tab and you have a seriously natty shoe for spring summer

    Hello Everyone,
    I am very sorry to be a spoilsport but I'm afraid Trickers do not do a blue pebble leather.Richard from SH confirmed this for me last week.I have a pair of shoes in coffee burnished leather and they are much darker than the LS shoes in the photograph,which look closer to Gold M.C. calf.

    So now it's ...
    No medallion Eaton
    4444
    Smooth navy calf.
    Natural barbour welt
    Brass eyelets
    Brown dainite

    Pull tabs?
    Lining?
    Something interesting for the tongue? Navy suede?

    I think we have 6 now, when I'm back home I'll go through previous posts.

    I'm indifferent about lining/pulltabs/tongue, just a note, when using suede tongue, you can't have gusset tongue.

    Orange or red works for me.

    Are we going with bellows or normal tongue in Navy?
    I honeslty don't care either way.

    I kind of like red lining/pull tabs, but I don't have strong feelings on it. Was the suede tongue still in play?

    Suede = normal tongue
    Calf = bellows tongue

    I prefer bellows tongue....

    Looks like red lining and tab...
