Gentlement, we still need a few people to join the GMTO of Alderley in edwardian antique before the project can go forward. If you are interested or potentially interested, have any questions etc., please see the thread here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/379626/gmto-the-perfect-brogue-boot-in-tan#post_6919913

 

Cheers,

SKM

I have plans on dooing a par of EG Chelsea in dark oak mto on the 888 last and wonder if anyone might be up for it aswell? I have mailed EG and they said its posible to do Chelsea on the 888 last.

So I can no longer resist the Carmina GMTO burgundy shell jumper. However, I do have a quick question regarding sizing. For reference I wear a UK 7.5 in the Soller Last (wide fitting last). The width on this last is perfect, but would be unwearable if any narrower. Based on this I suspect a UK 8 would be necessary on the, somewhat more narrow, Oscar Last. That being said I would appreciate anybody's advice or experience with these two lasts.

When would you estimate that a 9.5UK for this model will be restocked?

Correct!
Yes, we have an order incoming in March. Please e-mail us to be on the waiting list.

Sorry to be dense but am I reading the price list right? A croc shoe is 818USD (ex vat)?

Correct. Remember, croc and gator are two completely different mats.

I actually talked about this with Gabriel at Skoab the other day, as this possibility somewhat surprised me. He told me that a Chelsea on the 888 last wasn't possible to do as a "regular" MTO, and that the only way to this would be through a "Top Drawer" MTO. Are you aware about this? This means a higher level of workmanship of course, but also a hefty surcharge...

Okey that sounds weird couse the price they gave me was not for the Top Drawer.

Yes that is strange indeed. Maybe its best to make sure again then? Or maybe someone from SkoAB could make things straight for us in this thread? Leaves? Gabriel?

Im also in love with the frankenstitch. I have bort a pair of soller, oscar adn robert. I wear UK 9 in all. Indeed soller is a bit wider fit but for me its not so much that i wear different sizez in thoose lasts. I dont know if thats was much for help.

Yeah your right, just sent a mail to EG about it again.

They won't make the Chelsea on any other last than 82 or 202. I had this discussion with them just a couple of months ago and they were unyielding. Who at EG told you they can do it on 888?

We have not yet placed another restock for this model so I cannot specify a date (there is also a lead time of about 3 months) but it will absolutely be restocked in a UK 9.5. However, this restock will probably not arrive before the summer. Please e-mail us to be placed on the waiting list for the time being, sales@skoaktiebolaget.se

Correct also.

818 sounds like a decent price for croc, any pictures of croc carminas please?

So all exotics are 'MTO'?
