Alderley is 6880 SEK ex VAT for clients outside the EU (about $1050), 8600 SEK inc. VAT for EU clients. The "advanced" program is called top drawer. You have more freedom in this program than their regular MTO program which is now-a-days pretty limited. They might do a top drawer Alderley with shearling but only for single orders and the price would be about 25% more than a regular Alderley MTO.
Have to double check this. I really think so to be honest, I'm meeting EG on Wednesday, I can double check then.
Thanks. Please do. Generally on GMTO's size and fit are the only things you can change. This still allows the company to achieve the necessary economies of scale. Anyway, I could be wrong and I am happy to stand corrected.
I think we should pause until Leaves (Patrik) gets back from his meeting with EG. I have the order form from EG and the Weymouth is listed as a derby. I think this goes to the descrepancy mentioned earlier. Right now I believe we are discussing the original Weymouth which is an oxford and not a derby.
Group, here are the specs as I see them:
Model: Weymouth I - Oxford (Right now it appears this will be approx. $900 and will be finalized before order.)
Color: Edwardian Antique
Edge trim: Natural
Sole: H/AF (EG double sole which is 200 SEK ex vat upcharge or approx. $31.00)
Last is either 888 or 82 depending upon group vote and availability
Shoe trees (760 SEK ex vat or approx $117.00
Please send me a PM if you are interested please specify size and last.
