I went TD and had a pair made in Bronze on the 888 last. At the time I had never seen a Bronze Galway anywhere online or at EG London or Paris.

LSH had some made in Bronze & Black country calf. See the following URL for details:

Here are few quick and dirty comparison pics of my Bronze pair and my Dark Oak pair.

TD allows for any last to be used for any model?

I am not quite sure what their policy exactly is, but at the time the Galway on the 888 as regular MTO was not an option. I had to go TD and put in allot of effort in the communication to make it happen, EG wasn't very eager to make it on the 888 even as TD. They advised me strongly to consider other lasts like the 64, 82, 202 and the 606. My assessment is that as a regular MTO they offer most models in two standard lasts, if you want the shoe on another last you wil have a reasonable chance they will make it on your last of choice. If the last/model combination does't make sense to them they will decline to make it regardless if you are willing to pay TD coin. Another reason they won't make it, is if they know from experience that technical difficulties will be presented if they attempt to build the shoe on your selected last.

If you have something non standard in mind, you should just contact them and request to have it made MTO. If they decline because of the selected last you could always ask them if they would be willing to make it TD.

That is good advice.

I have made a handful of inquiries for "standard" MTOs in the last few months. The responses I received limited the models in question to two different lasts. Perhaps strangely, I was never told it was possible at TD prices - but inquiring specifically of that was something I did not do.

Anybody knows what's the ballpark price for TD?
post #7289 of 18774

I think it has been a standard $1600 in the U.S. market for some time.  I do not think that has changed.

If that's correct then the US market is getting TD a bit cheaper than the UK. In the UK it is currently £1350 (about $2,250) for shoes. I haven't commissioned a boot yet but I suspect that is more. Those prices do include UK VAT (sales tax) at 20% so the price excluding taxes is about $1,800. Last year the UK price inc VAT was £1,250 so smoothie1's price might be before the latest price increase.
