    Hi Guys,

    It's that time again. As I promised, a Derby. My idea is to make this in a leather that will age really well. I think the brown CXL will fit this nicely.  And that the 2040 last will give a slimmer profile but have the rounded toe of a traditional classic country Derby.  I'm going to keep this one short.  We're going to have about a week for discussion and then go straight to the ordering stage.

    Model: Derby
    Last: 2040
    Leather: Brown CXL
    Captoe: None
    Midsole: brown
    Outsole: leather, dainite heel.
    Tongue: same as body
    Eyelets: 5 mini antique brass

    Please discuss here.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Man, I've been lusting after the Derby but I'm about a week away from the brown CXL Service Boots
    I pre-ordered from Leffot. Kind wanna diversify my leathers best I can. Is the leather pretty much
    set in stone?

    Sheeiiit, I'll probably get in on this regardless.

    Also, it seems like all the pictures I've seen of the Derby featured a double leather
    sole? Is that not the case with this MTO?

    I think I"m in--but is the thought of 2040 instead of 2030 because the 2040 toe might be slightly too pointy to be considered really a Derby? I like the idea of a slimmer last--wouldn't be in if it were on the 110, but haven't seen any 2040's in person to compare to the 2030 service boot I own.

    I vote for a double leather sole with brown edge trim. I like that look more than natural leather soles. Anyone like the idea of antique brass eyelets?

    Like the the brass eyelet suggestion 2040 sounds good. The picture we all seen posted and the slim profile what last do we
    Think is that.... But I'm down for some derby love

    Double leather sole and antique brass eyelets sound good.

    In terms of leother, ebony Essex might be a good alternative option.

    That sounds like a good option. How do you think the shoes would look like with 7 eyelets?
    Also, not sure which leather is softer, but for derbys a softer leather may be better since it would be worn more during the warmer months.

    I really like the brown CXL leather. Maybe we can do a black leather MTO next time. With antique brass eyelets that would look cool too.

    I am curious how the derby would look with more eyelets. How many eyelets on the original plan? Five? With the antique brass eyets I think five looks good. With seven eyelets I think you would want blind eyelets so the shoe doesn't look cluttered

    Hope I didn't ruffle things up too much with that. Double leather sounds
    awesome. Is that olive-ish guidi leather that was shown on the service boots
    @ liberty at all an option? Not sure others are into that anyways but worth
    a shot. There might be cost concerns. Example below.

    If I had to choose, I'd go for the brown CXL over black if the guidi isn't on
    the table.

    I think so too. Five with brass. 7 without. Both would look great I think.
    I was going to suggest a green colored alternative as well like the loden green but I think this olive color is even better for a derby.

    Ebony Essex is not black. It is a brown with grey tones. I don't want black either.

    We will do a GuidI boot when the supply is more reliable.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
