Thank you for your email.
The Chelsea can be made to order on the 888 last, this takes about 12 / 14 weeks.

As I suspected. Thanks for clearing this upp Leaves! Does this also mean that they won't even do it on the 888 as a top drawer MTO?
I personally applaud EG for this decision. It gives their shoes a kind of "artistic integrity" in a world where every other shoe maker lets you decide just about everything, just as long as you pay enough.
I am not the one who knows the answer to this, for sure. However, I like to think that the reason has to do with aesthetics and integrity, but I might as well be totally wrong. Maybe its just me being romantic about the whole situation.
