Lovely shoes, Ironist and Gerry : ) X-post from Corthay, they are 4 yo now.
@Thinkderm Hm dunno tbh. I like tan boots but the more chunky, country type boot. Personally I think the Somerville is a bit too formal for cord. People often think I'm just wearing toe-cap oxfords and thats what they look like. Wouldn't make sense in whisky cord imo. I have another pair of Galways in edwardian (also 82) and I find them much less wearable than my dark oak / CC pair due to the colour even though the leather on them is nicer.

The shoe above is indeed not an Arca but bespoke Arca's have a similar toe, this picture just showed the toe better. The difference between the RTW and Bespoke last shapes was explained in the Corthay shop just the way I describe it to you. Here are a bespoke 3 eyelet derby, an RTW arca and a bespoke jouvet. Notice the difference in...
If you mean MTO as is choosing your colour then yes, its the RTW last just finished in a colour of your choosing. Mine was an MTO in vieux noir. I find the RTW shape sleek and beautiful enough but there is always something better out there... : )
