Hi JubeiSpiegel, I think you confusing MTO with Special Orders. Special orders are single pairs that are sent around the factory on their lonesome! Obviously this is the most inefficient way of producing any product, let alone a luxury product with such an in depth manufacturing process, thus the increased price.
Wholesale MTO is one of Crockett & Jones biggest strengths which is why when you visit many of our wholesale customers around the world (if you are lucky enough) you will see a huge mix of styles and colour specific to their own customers tastes.
We understand it is difficult as many of the manufacturers work with their own terminology.
