Forgive my ignorance, but has a GMTO ever been generated as the result of a trunk show like this one? I understand that the MTO fee is being waived, was just wondering if there might be a chance to coax a volume discount from Paul and Skip.

Wish the First Ave boot was offered as an option...concern is if the Navy is too dark...or the Dark Brown for that matter..

 

 

 

Considering assuming the full range of MTO options are available-

Dark Brown Chukka with the make up I would like from the GMTO build...

Natural Patriot for summer

I'd be all over this... if I had the funds. Stupid whiskey and ravello longwings draining my shoe fund. facepalm.gif

Any chance this trunk show is part of a circuit that would still be running and taking orders into January?

My guess is there is a very limited supply of each color, and they are only accepting as many orders as the supply will yield.

But perhaps there will be future trunk shows as well if this one goes well?

I wonder how that Navy Shell ages/patinas/lightens - the swatch looks about the same color as the calf EC photos. Hmmm....

 

Natural...is it the new Walnut?

On November 10, we will host a Cordovan "trunk show". Paul Grangaard and Skip Horween will be attending the event from 5 pm to 8 pm to answer any questions you may have. As a part of the event, Skip is offering some limited colors in shell, including Navy, Green, Deep dark brown and Natural brown, in addition to our usual brown, burgundy and black. These limited colors will be available on a first come first serve basis in the following styles: Leeds, Macneil, Dundee, Strand, Park Ave and Strand. THERE WILL BE NO CUSTOM FEE FOR CORDOVAN THIS NIGHT. If you have dreamed about a navy shell chukka like I have, now is your chance.
You guys can email me directly with questions at rstowe@allenedmonds.com
I hope to see some of you at the event. If you can't make it, we are glad to take orders via phone or email.
Best,
Ryan

Just ordered a Natty Strand, Navy EC (if they will do it), and Navy Grayson. Very excited!!!

Edit: Got some rudder guidance, they are only doing the originally listed designs.

Just to be clear, this is in regards to the trunk show mentioned by Ryan? Did you submit your order via email? Did you include any custom requests?

No appearance in NYC? That can't be right! There are 4 stores here.

No surprise there!  ;)  That would probably be my first choice as well.

I called. Muhahaha. I don't think I can afford to go to crazy these days.

Edit: If you read my subsequent posts, you will see I got updated rudder guidance that they are only doing the listed styles for now.

What do you guys think?

I like it. Of course for Natural the Dundee would be MY choice. :) 

 

No doubt in my mind that they will look great in your collection no matter which way you go with the colors.
