GMTO!!! (head on over to the GMTO thread to opt in)

 

Hey guys, what are your thoughts on this:

 

Clark Street

Olive (loden) Suede

Tan/Alabaster stitching

Single Oak sole with V-Tread outsole (open to change, not dainite though)

Buff Welt (either flat or storm)

Buff or toasted Edge Dressing

Blind eyelets (the metal eyelets make the shoe too casual)

 

My aim is to mimic something like this from Alden

 

 

Open to suggestions and feedback. Heres the suede color-

Thanks to @hoit1981 for the heads up on the ralph lauren sample sale in NYC. If you're around and a D width (maybe some Es, I saw one) , saw lots of AE for RL for $135. I passed since I got a black label trench and RRL selvedge denim instead. I had snuff suede Slaton and brown singletons in my hand but resisted.

Thanks! Those are actually Eagle County MTOs. If you reach out to Rostov you may get onto a Eagle River MTO of almost the exact same make up as the brown grain Eagle County in my collage.

We've had a few try and get in late, but I figured it wouldn't be fair to try and sneak in black Friday pricing after the fact, especially since Allison told me to have orders in by midnight of "Cyber Monday".

Watch, thanks for the info.

 

Understandable, rostov. I wasn't 100% ready to jump on the MTO bandwagon yet anyway - perhaps sometime in 2015.

 

In the meantime I will likely pick up a pair of Eagle Rivers off the shoebank. I am a 9D in most AEs, including the 5 last (McT's, with toe pads) but sized up to 9.5 D in my Shakers (which fit great). Was thinking I would also size up for the Eagle. Anyone have any sizing rec's on the Eagle River/County or the 222 last?

probably should go 9E for Eagle....

They close at the end of the year, so I expect that to go up soon.
I think I got measured and bought my first pair of AE there. Their stock room is quite impressive. I'll call it a shoe cave.
Are you saying the price will go up later?

No, their discounts will likely only increase as it gets closer to December 31st (the date on which they close for good).

 

I'm planning on swinging by next week and will report back.

Extremely jealous of those of you living close by!  Wish I knew someone who lived there who could snag a few pairs for me.

I went with my normal size (10E) for my first pair of 222 last shoes.  I had to have them stretched for them to even be wearable.  On the latest GMTO I went with a 10EEE  I figured worst case I can wear thick socks

Of course the shoebank doesn't have 9E. Leaves me deciding between 9D (tts), 9.5D, or 9.5E.
