Looks like we have more than enough to get this GMTO going in January. I think 5-6 people are in now.

Details:


Plain captoe balmoral with hidden seams
EB ref 3863 in black calf
Last 804
270deg handwelted
Single leather sole
Black welt, edge dressing

I'll create a group chat with everybody who has shown interest so far so as not to clog the Skoak thread. Again this is for January.

Thank you very much for the summary, and for putting it together. 

Am very much looking forward to this GMTO.

The only other black shoes I have is a Florsheim 3 eyelet derby which I bought in 2011. This will be my first proper black dress shoe and should fill in any need for black shoes.

...

That said If the 804 turns out as good as it looks then maybe a black wholecut in 804 wouldn't be a bad idea in the far far future.

I have a pair of GG wholecuts in black on order otherwise I would probably partake in that Bonafe order. Probably the most elegant black captoe ive seen in a long while

I am interested.

Dear Gents,

 

It does seem that response has been pretty good for this GMTO. 

Thank you everyone for your interest. 

@watchidiot has put together the GMTO details very nicely. 

Due to the number of interests shown (8 so far), and also the need to make everyone happy, I would like to discuss the time frame of  this project. The original intention was for this GMTO to be initiated in Jan 2016. As this is approximately 6 weeks from now, I would understand if some of you folks would prefer initiating this earlier. 

Since there are 8 of us who are interested, perhaps we might be able to please everyone. 

This is the list of those who have expressed interest: 

@watchidiot

@dalevy

@budapest12

@bloodyj13

@bsarosi

@Faster

@benjamin8451

And myself as well.

Could I just have an idea, which of you would like to proceed immediately, and which of you would prefer / be ok, waiting till January.

For the record, I am fine with both.

 

Regards,

Winston 

post #18750 of 23796

preference for me is sometime in january.

 

edit:  I thought this was going to be moved somewhere else so as not to clog up the thread?
