The shoes are stunning, but the finish is no good. IMHO, I think for the same money, G&G does a better job.

FedEx just dropped these off. I do not think they are Cognac. They look very dark brown in real life.

By same money, do you mean twice the price? These aren't handgrade, these are exclusive range. My impression was that G&G cost around $1200+ for calf so a few hundred more for shell.

I'd be interested in the Keats in burgundy or oxblood, perhaps with matching suede in the throat of the adelaide by the laces.

Anyway ... anybody wants to discuss a next possible desiighn of MTO?)))))))

Julian please remind how much will be shoes in Exlusive specification group MTO (like Miller, Benson):

1) calf
2) cordovan

Thanks in advance 

PS: and will there be so long  wait also and deposit of money? Or will it be corrected somehow?

Yes, calf shoes mto are £490 and shoes in Shell are £590, calf boot mto are £550 and boots in Shell are £650 - bear in mind that there is a 3 to 4 months order time on all colours of shell so the quicker we order the better.

Let me know if you have any queries.

Can we have MTO with different width of shoes? I consider G width

Fed Ex called. The Miller boot will be delivered before 10:30 AM tomorrow! bounce2.gif

It's rather like the end of an epic, isn't it?

Theses were supposed to be MTO made to handgrade level in shell cordovan. The only difference is the beveled waist. Paid close to $1,000 for them.

We did varying widths on the Miller boot.

No, they were supposed to be handgrade style at exclusive level.

This sounds exactly right to me. AS is taking a style normally made only in handgrade and making up the shoe to exclusive standards on an exclusive last.

+1 It is tricky trying to differentiate I think when it comes to shell since the distributor (Horween) and material is the same. From my understanding of the MTO/HG, the last (19, 48, & 53 are only for MTO/HG with some exceptions), [calf] uppers, burnishing (if requested), fiddleback waist, bevelled edge, sole dressing, and packaging are better compared to the Exclusive range (of course the 'MTO' piece is default when it comes to design/color/etc.).

I personally do not get too hyped up on the soles so the Exclusive level works perfectly for me. Very happy with the whiskey Ramseys and I look forward to receiving the Cognac Millers. NYC is supposed to be sunny so maybe I can wear them on the walk home! Nothing breaks shoes/boots in better than a 2.5K walk icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thank zippyh. This helps make my point even more.

I don't suppose anyone would be interested in the Handgrade Carroll loafer with medallion and no tassels... in midnight blue burnished calf or Oxblood...made to Exclusive specs. If so great, otherwise I will most probably have to go the Handgrade option.
