Similarly, a pair of Greens in each Cirrus Calf shade and each leather type (country calf, pin grain, Scotland grain, willow calf, suede in all colors). Lastly (har har), you are to acquire a pair of Greens on each last they offer -- not today's 82s and 888s but the 88, 89, 808, 404, 61, 65, 505, 33, 32, 201, 909, 58 and 540... This thread will self-destruct.
Hasn't it been a day now? Hmm. I think you should get your thread-explodey-device checked.

The Vass are scandalously beautiful, what took you so long to post pictures of them.

RJ, any pictures of EG in the 909 last?

OK, I accept.

I have 88, 89, 808, 61, 65, 505, 32 and 33. You left off Flusser's 707, I also have that.

So that leaves 404, 201, 909, 58 and 540. This could take a while and cost thousnads of lives, but what the hell.

The oft overlooked slip-on lasts.

I left off the common lasts thinking you would have them -- aren't we beyond that? I mean the 202, 606, 100, 101, 184, 82, 888 and 89. The others are a little less easy to find.

Word RJ. This group alone should pose an intersting challenge:

404, 201, 909, 58 and 540

I think I have most of the hides covered. I don't have anyhting in bauxite or the Cirrus family (nor will I be adding one anytime soon). But I do have a Dover on the 505 in Heather Gorse which is no longer offered.

Oh yeah? Do you have Wine Scotland? Almond country calf? Birch Antique? Maple Antique? Navy blue antique? Nutmeg suede? Mink suede? Tobacco Suede?

This game can keep going for years... We can also ask you to collect Greens made for all of their licensors, both current/recent (Asprey, RLPL, Battistoni(?), Holland & Holland(?), Wildsmith (thru Hildeetch's US visits)) and past (Foster & Son, Poulsen Skone, Lloyd) to ancient (Cole-Haan, Lobb Paris, Nordstrom, Peal, Esquire, Wilkes Bashford)...

To help you out, the 540, I believe, was the real Peal last, back in the day long ago. The 909 may be the slip-on last used on the loafers at Flusser. Ooh, there was also a Top Drawer last that I forgot about, something like the 72? Little help please!!! The 201 was an ancient, ancient last that gave rise to the 32 (I think) and eventually the 202.

Once Green restarts their MTO program you can probably just make a slew of orders on those lasts and gleam that cube.

Will RJ cut it out with the emoticons, or won't he?
