That is too similar to the Thorpe GMTO going on.

I'm really enjoying the Shannon GMTO, and this seems like the perfect more casual, harder wearing, complement.

Edward Green does not allow GMTO anymore, so it would have to be individual MTO.

Aha, good info, thanks guys. Somehow I either never knew or had forgotten about that change at EG. Thorpe does look nice but I'm looking for a darker color, and EG lasts fit me better anyway. Now pardon me while I email Skoak. If anyone wants to join me in an individual MTO, you're of course welcome.

Go for walnut country calf. It's a true dark brown and would look killer. You could do the ridgeway sole if you want something thicker than Dainite

Yep, walnut looks exactly right. Will have to think about the sole issue. And the last. I don't want something too sleek. Might just use whichever last is in the photograph I quoted.

Thanks for this.  I know my current Carmina in snuff suede have a brown liner and think this may be the safest option for our GMTO.

Cheers...I'll look at your instagram as well, which I follow.

I tried it with a darker grey which might work but I felt it would not be optimal. At that point I'd just prefer dark brown suede. However, in a pinch you could swing a couple shades darker with the snuff suede shoes. Someone can feel free to disagree with me here.

It looks a little bit darker than usual. I really liked the burgundy color I had on my pair of Inverness which I had to sell sadly due to the poor fit. I really liked the color on these.

The last thing we need to figure out is the lining and either single or double dainite sole. Anyone else is free to chime in and/or join.

 

Confirmed:

@Faster @New Shoes1 @cbtaylor @sarteaga @ScottMC Myself, and 1 Non SFer

 

Interested:

@TweedyProf @Murlsquirl @CanadaCal

 

Edit: First to 4 votes wins. 

 

Lining:

Faster - Red

New Shoes1 - prefers not red, votes for purple, black, green, or brown

sarteaga - Red or Green

ScottMC - Red

Non SFer - Prefers purple over red but no real preference

TweedyProf - Purple or Green

thehaven22 - Purple

cbtaylor - Purple

Gabriel of Skoak also suggests Purple

 

Dainite (Double or Single):

thehaven22 - Single but either works

New Shoes1 - Single

Non SFer - Single

 

Carmina Snuff Suede Chukka GMTO (Click to show)

I am interested in organizing a Carmina suede chukka GMTO via Skoaktiebolaget's program. I'm trying to get this going this month before Carmina/Skoaktiebolaget's price increase in March. With the strength of the USD to the SEK, this is a good time to organize an order.

 

These chukkas will be a work horse by being able to worn in both casual and business casual settings easily. A lighter shade of suede is something that will add another dimension to your shoe rotation. The makeup is:

Model: 905 5 eyelet chukka

Last: Rain

Sole: Dainite

Leather: Snuff suede

Price: ~$390 + shipping, which may be around $40 if shipping to the US. A 50% nonrefundable deposit is required at the start of the GMTO, with the balance + shipping is charged once the shoes ship.

It looks like we might have the makeup on lock. Purple lining and single dainite. If anyone wants to join, there will be no further changes to the makeup, but they could PM me their email by Friday night.
