    Of the two legitimate options available so far, I definitely cast
    1 vote towards the ebony essex.

    These are the double leather soles I was thinking of. Brown edge trim with a dovetail heel. I think this would look great with the brown CXL and antique brass eyelets. Thoughts?

    Or if you decide to do this MTO derby in ebony essex, maybe we could do another MTO later on in a brown CXL boot like this one (instead of icy mocha as pictured) with no cap toe, antique brass eyelets, and a double leather sole with brown edge trim and dovetail heel? Thoughts?

    I like the 2045 last with unstructured toe of your waxed flesh service boot make up. I think this would look great on a derby: somewhere between the slim 2030 and rounder 2040. The 2040 is ok, but at least in photos seems to have a slightly asymmetric almost "anatomic" contour to the toe. I would also vote for natural leather midsole with dainite outsole or double leather. No more than 5 eyelets. Ebony Essex or brown cxl ok.

    I would like to see more pics of ebony essex if possible--at the Horween site they just post a description and the picture is of a different color. I know Brown CXL and like it.

    As for double leather sole vs. Dainite, I might prefer Dainite only because of the increased wearability and longer lasting sole (and love that it is low profile so still looks like a leather soled shoe) but probably wouldn't opt out of it were double leather.

    I vote for double leather and what happened to the natural cxl as was shown on the sample derby?

    Why no captoe? These are so beautiful. They keep popping up on Viberg's instagram, but I have no idea who (which store) they are going to.

    Supposedly it's a new last.

    Is that awesome olive-like cxl from the 3sixteen collaboration an option for this gmto?

    Would a derby with a double leather sole in brown CXL look similar to this?

    I'm pretty sure that's a black Vibram Christie sole pictured.

    Something like that olive 3sixteen make-up would fill a nice void in
    my line-up. Ultimately though, if its not black and has a double leather
    (no cap toe necessary imo), I'm all in.

    I'm all in for the brown CXL on this MTO. But I really like this cognac color for the next one. I can see how this MTO addiction could become a problem....

    So... This make up sounds great to me:

    Model: Derby
    Last: 2040
    Leather: 3sixteen olive
    Captoe: Brogued cap toe preferably (big fan of the Tricker's Minster, but Viberg would be even nicer)
    Midsole: Natural
    Tongue: Olive
    Sole: Open to both double leather or dainite (looks good on this prototype)

    the OP or the ebony essex all sound good.

    So far I really like the brown or natural cxl as my favorite. Though I would consider the olive or Essex if that is what is decided

    I've been looking for a pair of straight-up mid-brown derbies or shortwings for a few months – I'm definitely interested if we end up with the brown CXL.

    I think brown CXL or ebony Essex. The ebony is kind of a cool subtle twist compared to the sea of CXL

    Is the 3sixteen olive on the table? If so, then I may have to jump in on this, too...

    We are going to do a brown cxl or ebony Essex for this particular makeup but will consider other leather for later makeups.

    Which leather? And dainite or double leather sole?

    Cheers,

    Fok.
