I think you mistook my meaning. My comment was that, since I couldn't afford to get three pair of bespokes at one time, I was hoping to find something close to the full brogue from Tony's bespoke portfolio -- my third choice -- in an MTO model. (In other words, I was prepared to leave with three pair of shoes, two bespoke and one MTO.) Unfortunately, the MTO full brogue isn't as aesthetically pleasing, to my eye, as the bespoke model for which it would have served as a substitute.
So, rather than compromising on what I want, I elected to order my first two choices and wait to get the exact shoe I want, the bespoke full brogue, on their next go-round.
