I think my shoes were a step beyond MTO. The design was completely new, based on my request for whole cut double monks. They were built on an existing last, so obviously not bespoke. Custom, perhaps?

That is really more the definition of MTO than bespoke. Existing lasts were also used. Although I'd agree with you that it extends beyond your average MTO.
More flexibility than EG/G&G/JL MTO.
On par with SC MTO, which is capable of new patterns and last modification.

beveled but no blind welted.
Actually its blind welted. But doesn't look as beveled/fiddled as some of the bespoke shoes I've seen.
