I'm a few days late but saw you guys were talking about a Heritage GMTO. I had these made up when the old MTO program was still kicking. I gave Allison an idea of what I wanted and sent her a picture from another manufacturer and she picked the brown you see here. On my invoice it's listed as: 1079 BROWN CALF WING, EYESTAYS, COLLAR, HEEL2424 BROWN SUEDE VAMP, QUARTERPORON INSOLEORANGE LINING LEATHERBROWN FLAT WELTLIGHT BROWN TRANSPARENT EDGE DRESSINGV-TREAD OUTSOLEWHEELED...
My GMTO merlot EC from Sept arrived in Nov with a tear in the leather so I sent them back just prior to Thanksgiving. Finally just got them back almost three months later and during my first lace-up a hook popped right off the right boot. I have an email into Allison. Not sure if it's easier to take it to a cobbler and see if they have a matching hook and let Allison know what it cost or just send them back again and wait. It looks like the hook just broke apart from the...
 If  you don't mind me asking, what size did you get from Benjos? Looks like 22, 36, 54 inch is what they offer. I was told by AE that the Bayfield takes 45 inch.
 Thanks, I'll check out Benjos. The ones that came with mine are far too thick and pop off the hooks regularly and are a pain to lace.
 I like those laces. The ones that came with mine are thicker and just don't work well with the speed hooks. Where did you pick those laces up?
Not really an MTO question but kind of... I had a Bayfield made some time ago during the older SF MTO program. I got the thick flat laces with them which I'm now deciding I don't love. I want some basic brown round laces. I couldn't find anything on AE's website so I chatted with them online and was told that since those laces hadn't been used for some time (discontinued model) they were no longer available for sale.   Since many on here recently had a Bayfield MTO done,...
Anyone still waiting on their Merlot EC from the GMTO order in Sept? I received mine in Nov but there was a tear in the leather so Allison had me send them back which I did right away. As of our last email communication on Jan 5 she said it would still be "a few weeks". I haven't heard anything since but did email her two days ago to check. I guess they got backlogged with all the trunk show and other GMTO orders.   BTW, I had never seen this emoticon before. Creepy.  
Still waiting on my merlot EC from September. They arrived around when others were getting their boots but there was a defect so sent them back to Allison. They are being re-made. Waiting...
Allison apologized and sent me a return label. Back they go.
There were some recent posts about polishing bourbon shoes. I too have a Mora 2.0 in bourbon that is fairly new and I love the color. They are due for a treatment but I'm not sure exactly how to care for them. I chatted with someone on ae.com and they weren't very helpful. I'll most likely start by using neutral polish since that seems like the safest approach and then I can move to bourbon polish if needed but won't be able to easily go the other way. What I'm wondering...
