This will be in Third place order - I am hoping these will be in December for completion.

I should hope so. The order was placed on 14 June. Not your fault, Julian - I'm just annoyed that AS has taken this long to fulfil the order.

 

Really makes me have second thoughts about ever going MTO with them again.

Sitting and waiting is always difficult. I am in on the Ramsey and Miller and as long as I've seen them lasted (which previous pictures have shown), I know it's more than halfway there. A few more weeks!

you will not be disappointed for having waiting so long... I am also waiting for the Ramsey in Whiskey shell...anyway I placed an order with AS for the Lombard in Whiskey shell, was promised 12 - 16 weeks and it ended up taking about 6 months but.... they were fantastic when they arrived.... so well worth the wait IMO!

Waiting should be part of the fun. Although I must admit I'm no good at it.

I will say my MTO Pimlicos from AS were worth the wait.

That's true. I'm really looking forward to the finished pair and it should be stunning by all accounts. Looking back over the thread, I saw the derby boots that AS made for the French forum and would love to get the burgundy calf and suede boot at the 3 o'clock position below. I probably still will although I'm not going count on a firm delivery timeframe.

Alfred Sargent has the Armfield (black cap) and Ramsey (DM) which are nice places to start.

It's pictures like this that make me so glad AS took heed of the advice G&G gave them. Most of the models have more flair than the doctor orders, but the shapes and finishes are there.

Could we have any better offer from AFPOS?

Not quite to your point, but I always wanted to get a pair in espresso calf. Hulatt or Pendle? To me it should look just stunning. Anyone interested in joining this?

Wow, over 6 months for Benson???????

I've had few that I ordered in Aug. through a NY outfit and I've had them 3 weeks ago. I am at a loss as well.
I guess it is premature to ask about the Milton MTO!!

My understanding is that an MTO will take 12 - 16 weeks altogether. Given that there was a 3 month delay of the cognac shell, we're actually only 8 weeks into it - it's as if we only put in the order in mid September.

 

C'est la vie!
