I am sure we can go with either sole as long as we stick with one. I will need 15 members to be on board to get this to run with this sole, but I am committed to it. I am just not a fan of the other options out there.

I plan to send it in July so that we have them delivered in September/October.

All those interested in details and pricing, please PM me and I will keep a list and provide updates. I am waiting on another question to be answered by Pepe, but I have the pricing and specs ready to roll.

DL-

Sounds good for this coming Winter. Please count me in.

I've also asked if we can have the option of choosing between two lasts in the same order (much like the museum austerity GMTO). The lasts would be Olfe and the new Park last!
Still waiting for reply, just thought I'd let you guys know biggrin.gif


Ps. In the same mail I asked if they could source olive suede for another MTO:

Would anyone be interested wink.gif I think this is the perfect summer shoe!
The image is of a Carmina string loafer on the uteam last in olive suede from Skoaktiebolaget website smile.gif

 Jokanevad, I'm interested in the string loafer too! Please keep me posted :)

For what its worth I am putting together a MTO for the complete opposite piece of footwear. I am looking to have a shearling lined boot done on the Hiro last in a dark brown pebble grain and dark/med brown calf. Essentially a boot similar to the EG Galway with a Medway sole. I have prices from Pepe already and I would need quite a few people to make this happen.

 

I was going to wait until the summer to put this up on SF so we could time it with the winter. But given the 18+" of snow we will get today I was in the mood. :brick:

Hi DL, your idea sounds great! Mind pm-ing me the details re price,etc?

 

Just to add two points: 1) Meermin's nantes grain calf seems nice (not sure if they're still offering it now). What do you guys think?

 

 

2) Are you requesting a Sky welt (or even norvegese if the price is not too hefty?) for maximum water/snow-resistence?

 

cheers :D

PM's sent, keep them coming for those interested. I think these will be a great winter boot!

Could you also add me to the list, they look great!

post #9546 of 11071

@DavidLane: Please add me to your list. I have 3 pairs from Meermin so far (dark brown dbl monk, dark brown suede chukka, snuff suede boot) and all have impressed. A shearling lining sounds fantastic.

For those interested in the loden string loafers, Gentlemen's Footwear has stock coming in a week or so. Not sure on pricing but it shouldn't be much more than the Meermin would be and you can get it now.

They have an affiliate thread here with more info: http://www.styleforum.net/t/350127/gentlemensfootwear-com-carmina-drakes-cappelli-finamore-official-affiliate-thread/1500_100#post_6992236

Now we're talking. Does anyone know if Meermin can do Norwegian? Normally not a fan of it on dress shoes, but it'd be bad ass on a true winter boot.

I have PM'ed all those who have shown interest, but if I missed you let me know. I am waiting to collect enough requests to ask Pepe for some clarifications. Keep posting if you are interested or just PM me and I will forward the details I have.

 

Norwegian could be an option, but my quote right now is for GY1.

DL, do you have a picture of the what you want the boots to look like?

This?

With the lining in this picture?

900x900px-LL-783491d9_dsc05567l.jpeg

I may be interested, put me on the list for more details. Thanks.

Ironist,

 

Exactly, I originally received a quote for the leather combination similar to the first image with shearling lining. I will forward you the details. I am compiling everyone who is interested, and I will be sending Pepe a condensed list of questions.

 

At this time I do not have any images from Meermin, but I think they will be great!

Guys I am interested too. What do you think of full commando soles with norwegese welt like the meermin boot bellow.

I would be in with no Norvegese (despite my heriditary).
