A Fine Pair of Shoes x Alfred Sargent MTO Thread - Page 66
Styles mentioned in this thread:
Seems to me if we were looking for a fairly routine make up (similar to those that came before) and got 5+ locked in, with AFPoS looking to order a few more for their stocklist it would be business as usual. The only issue is when can we start and what would lead times look like?
While I'm excited by the prospect at getting this MTO going again I don't get the impression that all is well with AS. Or maybe they're just experiencing too much success with their J.Crew venture? But their responsiveness otherwise seems muted.
Hi Laufer - I have requested samples from AS of all the Pin Grain colours available and will post here when they come in.
At present Dark Brown pin grain is currently the only option for smaller runs due to the large minimum order now required from the tanneries for other colours.
Let me know if I can help further.
I see. Thank you so much for your assistance.
On the other hand I have question about the sizing. I am comfortable in size 10 F in lasts 109 and 724. What size would you recommend for the last 87?
On balance I would stick with the 10F in the 87, it is slightly shorter in length than the 109 but similar width to the 724 last.
For this specification of boot with Horween Cordovan we would be looking at the same price as the last mto of £541.66 ex VAT outside of the EU including delivery.
Probably around 650 GBP (Inc VAT), with a 6 month delivery date, and would require 15 people. Edit: APS posted the price excluding AT above.
I'm thinking about getting the boot done by Carmina as a group MTO (875$) with a 3 month delivery time.
