Wanna throw another MTO idea for Carmina before the "3"% price increase. I think this has been done before during 2013....

Carmina 905 chukka in Simpson last


In this darker brown hatch grain from horween. Picture taken from another Carmina affliate retailer. Do let me know if it is appropriate to post this pic here. If not I will take it down.


This will like a wonderful sleek dress chukka suitable for any dressing up or dressing down even!

How about Rain last? Unfortunately the Simpson last does not work for my feet.

We had a couple of emails bounced. Please send is an email if you did not get our EB status email.

On another note, thanks for all the positive comments and feedback the last few pages. It's just so rewarding guys, the team is working so hard right now, and this means the world to us.

Gabriel has been great. I believe we got all the details down on my Nevis MTO. He confirmed with EG that I could get all eyelets with MTO 1 since the pattern already exists. Now the waiting game.

You guys deserve it! I was chatting with another member today and we were talking about the quantity of EB MOTs that went through. It must have been a crazy month for the shop. Still though all that I was still able to work out a completely separate MTO (as did another member) with Gabriel and he didn't even miss a beat. Still the quick responses I always get from the shop. 

 

Thanks again, SkoAB!

Thanks again for the updates. It's been a real pleasure dealing with you guys.

 

This is by no means in any way rushing you to expedite the process. I am just curious how the MTO arrangements are ordered seeing that some submitted at the start of the month while others at the end. Were they all compiled and submitted in its entirety at the end of January or were the submissions made to Bonafe as and when the orders were received.

I would check out the Delapre leathers if you don't necessarily want a grain. Or like I said the Utah is a nice subtle scotch grain.

Thank you and thanks to Lafeur also.

I just took a look at some of the Utah Leathers on Edward Green's website. I think that may be a great suggestion. Does anyone know which shades are available in Utah? I think I have seen dark brown. Perhaps Edwardian?

@Leaves Is there a list of the G&G shoes that will be re-stocked/which new models are coming in the future (non-GMTO).

 

Also, is there a G&G version of the EG Laughton?

I was informed that the choices are the dark brown, chestnut, and blue.

There was a pic of the swatch posted a couple pages ago. I haven't seen it made up into a shoe or boot, yet.

Hey @Leaves does Carmina still work with Hatch Grain? I seem to remember they only used chestnut hatch grain color?

Looks like shoes went down in price again ("undeclared currency war" seems to be the culprit).

Edit: $758 for EGs!
