A Fine Pair of Shoes x Alfred Sargent MTO Thread - Page 12
In a way it does not suck as much as it should because it's better for my wallet this way. Best of luck guys, I will wait for pics down the road.
+1. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for more exotic shell options.
When I've corresponded directly w/ Chay Cooper @ AS, he listed the 4 colors discussed here (http://www.styleforum.net/t/233902/a-fine-pair-of-shoes-official-affiliate-thread/525#post_5449660) as the only shell options. I went w/ the #8 for single monks & am still waiting for oxfords in whiskey w/ a black saddle ordered in Dec.
I am much the same way. But occasionally I have the willpower to go this route with an MTO, shoes, suit or whatever. In the end it is worth it. It will feel bad that you are out of pocket now with nothing to show for it, but when the shoes ship and you pay the balance, it will feel like you got them for half price. Plus the boots will arrive right in time for balmoral boot weather.
