Correct, I want everyone to PM me their info before we get the green light. My line of thought is that I get all the info in the next few weeks and get it ready now so if Kathy gets the green light we are ready to go. It beats waiting then getting the green light & then getting the info & taking a couple of weeks to do that when you include people who may not check SF that often. Doing this now also gives me time to correlate all the info at a relaxed pace instead of trying to track everyone down at the last minute.

To clarify…

#4 boot is on the Grant last

"Thor" boot is on the Barbie last

When you PM me I need your size AND the boot style that you are interested in.

Thanks.

Alden isn't doing one-offs anymore.  At least for now.  You would need to get about 11 other people to agree on your design and then get a retailer to agree to order it for you, then get Alden to agree to produce it, if they are even able to obtain the material that you want.

 

Or... Tricker's still does MTO, but they refuse to use Horween Shell.  (I think they have some exclusivity agreement with Comipel)  They use some other Japanese tanned / Italian dyed cordovan.  I just looked into this a few months ago. 

 

theshoehealer.co.uk can help you get MTO Tricker's

 

...or you can jump on board with one of our designs described above.  As you may have read, we still haven't confirmed feasibility, but are on the right track.

 

Good luck with whatever route you pursue.

 

 

 

Side note: Has anyone ever seen the Comipel cordovan in person?  I've heard mixed things, and am kind of deterred by the Japanese aspect, because they are said to do shady things like use dog fur and pass it off as rabbit ect. (at least this is what I was told, not trying to offend anyone)

I'm in for either boot if it is determined that they can source the leather. will watch this thread for updates.

I'm in for the #4 but curious to know how long it will be until delivery.  thanks!

Jesus, that #4 boot is like a dream make up for me, hopefully they can make it happen, if so I am all in on the #4 boot. Thanks for all your hard work CTYGGG.

Just bumped into this thread.  I'm going to jump in.  Actually interested in whichever boot is picked.  They are both awesome.  Thanks, CTYGGG for all the work.  Will PM you my info.

Are both these MTOs going to be lined or unlined?  I'm in either way but would prefer lined unless someone has reasons unlined would be advantageous for these MTOs.

Are these boots showing what is referred to as a "reverse welt"?

Correct.

This is off-topic, but I have been daydreaming about a Whiskey WT boot lately similar to the Shoemart Ravello WT boot model. Has any shop ever produced such a configuration? Given the scarcity of Whiskey shell, I would doubt the viability of a MTO for this, but would anyone else be interested in such a design?

I organized an order for a Plaza Whiskey Wingtip boot with Mike at Epaulet earlier this year. But unfortunately that is long since closed.
