I'm on board with all this except the pull tab, but I can remove that easily so it's no big deal.

 

You'll love the Plaza.  I find it to be Alden's most comfortable and attractive lasts.  It is very TTS.

Do we have enough interest in this makeup to go forward with it? I count 5 possibly. Not sure if that will be enough for Kathy.

IIRC the magic number is 12.

Sometimes members post in the Marketplace to help find the requisite minimum orders--I've seen it for at least for a couple recent Carmina MTOs.  I haven't dealt with Kathy before otherwise I'd take the lead on coordinating the MTO.  Nonetheless, let's start a hard count...  I'm in.

Yeah that Plaza Indy looks nice. I'm definitely in for that. I hope we can get 12 people in on this.

If the Plaza is TTS then I would be interested in a pair, since I can not get he Thor boot, since it is on the Barrie. Any one else interested in a tanker style? I want to get one brown boot with tan accent stitching and the Indy and Tanker both have the stitching.

We're 1/3 of the way there!

Plaza last is amazing. I'm in for Indy boot only of its on that last.

Can someone confirm what this mto has evolved to at this point? And is it suede? I heard mention of CXL before.
post #387 of 478
I would probably be in on this makeup
post #388 of 478
As of right now it seems this is most popular:

Dark brown suede Indy
Plaza last
Commando sole
All eyelets
Antique edge trim
Reverse welt (360 or 270 - I think I actually prefer 360 for Plaza last, but I'm open to either)
Leather pull tab (I'd prefer no tab but this can be removed easily)

Nobody mentioned eyelet type yet, but I think matched eyelets would look best (not really a fan of brass or blind eyelets for this model). CXL I think is a decent option but there are already so many CXL Indy choices out there, it's much more difficult to find a brown suede Indy.

I think brass eyelets could look good and give a bit of pop but I am fine with matched as well

I would agree also with no pull tab for this makeup, but as you say it is easily removed
