Best to purge your mind of it and then rejoice upon arrival.

It looks like G&G is running about 2 months behind on MTO right now as far as I can tell. I have an order that was due in November that I am still waiting for. Dean's been cool about keeping me updated, and according to him, the order will be done before the end of the month, but there definitely is some delay with these MTOs.

I don't pretend to be an expert in MTO shoes, I only have one pair and they are from AE (very different process, obviously). But out of curiosity, when you spend a grand or more on a pair of MTO shoes and you are left waiting 2 months+ longer than you expected, shouldn't there be some sort of kick-back involved? Even if it's a % off your next purchase or something, you're paying damn good money for a luxury product. Just my $0.02.

It's the best way. I had almost completely forgotten about my order until I realized it was 2 months past due. Just put it out of your mind. Or buy a pair of RTW to wear in the meantime, I actually did that after I placed my order for this one.

I don't mind waiting for a quality product. It is not like it is defected.

I suppose this is true. I think I am just viewing more in a business light. If I told one of my clients they would have a deliverable in 2 months and then kept them updated every day, only to say that it was not going to be ready for another two months at the deliverable date I think I would lose that client pretty quickly.

He is getting updates and such though. He's not in the dark. I think that is what matters.

All business different and exception should be made.
It only small factory and G&G limited in how they control many outside factor.
It best to know this and be patient and try to support England footwear manufacturing (it rare now) with no fight with them.
They not bad people,
they just slow.
They do good job and shoe arrive one day.

I suppose it's one of the rare opportunities where delays are part of the process. The whole "it's well worth the wait" and what not. I suppose one day, if I ever step up into the big leagues, I'll see it as just a part of doing business.

I ordered a MTO pair for my wedding in late June. Fingers crossed that I don't have to go barefoot :-)
