I'm all aboard this MTO if the specs rainbowgrease listed is ok for the rest of you. Regarding the eyelets I am open for both brass and dark and the binding can be what the majority want. Only reservation for me will be the fit with a width 5, I will know if it fitts me in approx a week when I recive my Acorn Eaton's.
One of my other MTO Eatons with a black binding and matching pull tab. The natrual welt have got a mix of Saphir burgundy/black/cognac added to reduce the contrast to bind all parts of the booth more togheter. That`s what I like with the natural welt, you can add that personal toutch if you want with some Saphir cream.
  Regarding the linning, would a linning with more contrast be an option (dark/light). I think a linning like  the one on this illustration from Shoe Healer would be nice. It would be matching the natrual welt and make a nice contrast to the rest of the boot. The binding and pull tab could be a tad darker than the scotch grain,   
I might be interested in the scotch grain on a 4444 last. I do prefer Eaton but I can go for any other model as long as it is with a straight toe cap.  (I guess that is the same as Eaton or Herman :-)) Medalion or no medalion... I vote for no medalion.   If it is on a red Dainite sole I prefer the linning to be of a similar colour and not blue. I already got two pairs with an orange lining so maybee red linning and pull tab?   But I let you guys decide, I`m on the...
Will recive mine in a week or so. I' m also glad we went for the 4444 last. These will be my third pair of MTO Eaton's. The two other pairs are with a width 6 so I'am eager to try them on and see if they fit the way I hope they will :-) Looking at the photos I am very happy the way they turned out and I don't think Richard at Shoe Healer will have any problems selling the extra pairs he ordered. I hope we can make another MTO Eaton on the 4444 last during 2014.
Sorry, I have not been logged inn for almost two months. Just returned since I got an e-mail from Richard at Shoe Healer today that the Eaton bulk MTO has arrived and ready to be delivered, so I guess I`m ready for another order.I appreciate that you would ask Richard if he could reserve a pair for me but that`s to late now I guess :-) I will ask him tomorrow if he ordered a few extra for his store, and maybee one of those pairs fit me. If not,  I`am ready for a new MTO as...
Anoraks, my first thought would be 'cross country skiing', at least were I come from. Woulden't think of using them in the city. But then again, it might be the next fashion. :-)
Found this, published a few days ago at the Gentleman`s Gazette web site.   http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/trickers-boots-review/
I agree. Lining is for me the least importen issue.
I think black would be better than navy. But I think a dark green would be even better together with the 'brown/earthy' theme. If I don't get on board this MTO in time I might pick up one of the pairs that is reserved for Richard :-)
