Idk about pricing between the two but I would expect Skoak to be less even with a MTO fee but who knows. They are the only people/stores I deal with anymore outside of bespoke guys due to the service and knowledge being beyond reproach.
It was Enzo b no typo sorry typing in cell phone sucks ass. And I will let him know that if that helps.

It won't help me at all but maybe it will help you. He has worked out some great deals for me in the past.

So if it is EB is there a problem with a pair that you have and you need an insole to help fill up space? If so you can try to ask Skoak if they can get you a full sock liner.

If that doesn't work you can try some tongue pads or look for leather insoles that you can buy elsewhere. Tacco is one brand you can look up. Any nice leather insole would work to help take up space and still feel nice but in terms of thin enough ones to just take up space instead of being a leather covered arch support, tacco is probably the best quality that also has variety.

Thanks! I know I posted a few pics awhile back but it was about time for me to post them in the wild! I kept forgetting and now with a better camera on the new phone it helps to keep more clear pics, without having to pull out the actual camera.

I think that between the insole and the tongue pad, that it should pretty much fill up the space. Hopefully EB will have a thick sock liner that they can send you, which will probably be the best to fill it up.

 

You can also wear a thicker pair of socks, like a pair of boot socks, or even double up socks (like wearing a pair of athletic socks under the dress or boot socks depending on how much room you need to fill up). 

 

I have had to do combinations of these things above on many pairs due to my super narrow width when trying to figure out how narrow of a size i would need. So at least you have quite a few options.

no problem. 

 

oh and just so you know i jumped in on the Isham anyway! I just couldn't resist especially when it is different from the Thorpe on the sides, because it is more like a shoe version of the EG Nevis than the GG Thorpe.

I don't currently own any, and I've yet to see any I would be willing to pay the premium for.

 

 

The one exception being the that John Lobb Judhpur and the only croc was the strap. But it certainly was a nice addition.

 

 

Almost looks like the Walkton might have to be an MTO if you want it.

 

 

However there have been some GMTOs which failed initially but eventually made it in the long run.
