For those that have done MTO, do you know if BE can do flushed taps?

Anyone can actually do those, it's a MTO option (and a surcharge of course).

not terribly expensive, especially when paying for MTO already. TOTALLY worth it.

Contacted Nick to start the process of getting my Wigmore boots. Not a bad first shoe from G&G! Sadly it will take about 3 months to make. This fall will be spectacular: G&G Wigmore (hopefully), AS whiskey shell Ramsey, AS cognac shell Miller, Alden whiskey shell LWB, Alden whiskey shell wing tip boot, and Alden ravello shell Day Tripper.

Yeah, I think I should be good for the next decade... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'm not the biggest fan of boots, but the wigmore are absolutely fantastic. Great choice!

That's a shoe orgy there.

I luvz my Alden whiskey LWB.

Kinda heavy on the light colors? No?

Not that I don't really like light colored shell.

Do you already have the AS shell shoes in hand or are they on order? I am very impressed with the one pair of AS Exclusives that I own - would be very interested in seeing how well they work in shell.

And lastly - you indeed will not NEED any more shell shoes for more than a decade. But in my experience need has little to do with it.
