Class.

post #8162 of 13110
So, I couldn't wait any longer and pulled the trigger for the MTO I've been touting tor the last couple of moths: Alderley, Edwardian, 1,5 weight leather soles, natural colour sole edges. Should be sweet. Can't wait for autumn now, when I'll take delivery of both them and the zuglets happy.gif

My only fear is I'll die before they arrive, and my girlfriend will resell them for what i told her they cost. Actually, that fear goes for most of my shoes shog[1].gif

Congratulation but I cannot help to notice you are 0 for 2 in these GMTO things:D

Thank you my friend! We must find another awesome shell make up to do… In the next budget year.

Cheers

Sounds like you have some real exciting MTO's you'll be waiting for. I for one can't wait to see your Zugs.

Don't mention the war! I'm afraid I won't be able to sleep properly for the next 5 months or so of pure excitement. I guess my Alderleys will be done about the same time as my zuglets, so just imagine receiving TWO pairs of MTO at the same time… I mean drool.gifbounce2.gif

(yes, still new in this game)

Personally I find the waiting to be just a part of the fun. It just kind of extends the anticipation of getting something new that also happens to be pretty special. Generally speaking every time it's been more than worth the wait.

The wait also allows for plausable deniability as to the seriousness of my addiction.

How are you sizing it? Do you know if there is a cutoff date for the preorder?
post #8174 of 13110
@ Tifosi --- I believe that the original group preorder, per se, has closed, however, you can order it individually at the same price with about 5 months lead time, bc it is a Skoaktiebolaget standard model. I guess in theory they could set up other items this way too but I'm guessing that when the group order finished up they figured it easiest to just leave the option up with slightly modified text.

That said, I thought hard about ordering but couldn't figure out my size from learning my 82 last size. I heard I should use that size, then I heard I should size down, then I heard I should size up... Left me totally lost for an answer.

Thanks, Buda. looks like 5 months is the wait for all/many Galways. I've only seen one sizing rec saying to use the same size as 82. Dunno either. Pretty interested in that makeup.

@Buda. I'd love to do a Galway in all Almond CC. What you think?
