The original museum calf is nice (I have Lobbs in them). Now, the plum museum calf is a game changer. It's honestly rare to find shoes in it -- always sold out.

although I am very envious of those, who have just received the MTO in museum calf, I must say that I am very pleased wtih these wholecuts on the Ama last from the classic line. Fits perfectly out of the box ( much better than my Olfes).
Bought a belt in the same leather which is great too:

If anyone wants to buy a brand new unworn pair of double monks (Hiro last) size 8uk shoot me a PM. Dark brown. Will ship from NYC so you should receive within a couple days. Takes all the risk out of international shipping.

I'd be interested in a plum museum run moreso than the hatchgrain (though there's nothing stopping me from participating in both).  Already owning austerity brogues, I'd be more interested in an adelaide like below (but in plum museum). It comes together nicely in my imagination but....I can try to render a bunch of different models in the plum museum and hatchgrain if anyone would like?

In for plum museum.

As far as plum museum goes I am interested in either of these choices

Austerity brogue as mentioned
Burghler's example of adelaide above or
Plain toe such as JL Garnier

At the risk of getting lambasted for going too trendy, I'd like to suggest the JL Vale in plum museum calf:

Yes, to both for me. I would love to have both run at the same time, because it takes awhile to make the plum leather (I assume), so it increases the length of receipt. So, we would be looking at 5 months or so, based on the Museum MTO. I don't know if the hatchgrain requires the same time to be completed or if it's something they have on hand, or easy access.

In for Plum

Can somebody summarize?

I am interested to join but sifting through that many postings makes one dizzy...

Thanks.

Beautiful leather, but I'm in only if the apron is symmetric. JLs assymetric apron is just nonsense.

That said, then should it be rounded like the inner side of the far shoe or angled like the outer side of the near shoe? Hmmm....

I would love a shoe like the St. Crispin's 519 in hatchgrain, a specific model of captoe derby. The bottom one in this pic:

We are trying to decide on a Plum Museum Model

I believe Hatchgrain is also i the works, possibly wholecut and Chukka. I have yet to see the Chukka model.

Lastly, we don't know if the requisition of both Plum and Hatchgrain will run concurrently or consecutively.
