I am looking for 11 other people who would be interested in approaching Epaulet about a special order of these shoes.

- Trubalance Last (the only change I am proposing - originally came on Barrie last)


- Premium Extra Smooth Calf in Black


- Flat waxed shoes lace

- matching eyelets


- Rugged Commando Sole

- Pull tab

Gentlemen, nobody is offering this type of shoe - let's get this done now, so that it will be available by the fall.
Who's in?

Apologies for the spam, but I've got an NIB pair of Alden boots almost identical to these for sale in the marketplace here. The only difference is that they are in black shell cordovan rather than calf. Anyway, if you want a brand new pair of Alden shell boots at a fair price, look here:

Which reminds me, I'd prefer a non-perf cap toe, sfactor.  Do you have strong feelings on this issue?

 

 

^^^^ LS does some nice make-ups, eh?  Sadly, not my size.

actually, I would prefer the cap toe - to me, a cap toe boot is more versatile than a plain toe -

as far as the shell goes, yes, it is beautiful, no doubt about it - to me, that boot, but in smooth calf, would be perfect -

I may have misstated my point.  I want a cap toe, kind of have to have it for the military/combat look.  I meant I want a non-perf cap toe or plain cap toe.  Not sure if this is a problem for you.

 

I'm hoping to see a few people sign on regardless.

I misunderstood, my apologies - yes, I too prefer plain cap toe -

I also hope others sign on -

Gents, if you think you would like this for the fall, please let us know -

Sorry if this has been asked and answered but I'm not sifting through the whole thread; is extra wide sizes and option for the various group buys? Would all the boots in the order have to have the same width?

I don't think so - as I understand it, wide sizes can be included in a made-to-order; however, I am not 100% positive -

Wide sizes can be included, but there is a limit to how many different widths. I believe it's a function of the total number of pairs ordered as part of a particular MTO makeup.

I would love to see a six eyelet chukka in brown CXL with a flex, single oiled sole. Sound good?
