I'm pretty fine with your (and @CLTesquire
's) ideas, as it is. 

Most excellent. I'll let Gabriel know we have our quorum.

Received the Women's Carmina Jodhpurs, yesterday, that I bought for my wife. Really nice looking boot and she is going to love them. The black Friday code pushed me over the edge. 

 

For reference to anyone else interested; I bought the 5UK and my wife is a solid 7.5US and 38EU. I compared them to a pair of 7.5US boots that she has and they look pretty spot on. I haven't decided if I'm going to hold out for Christmas or not, but once she tries them on I could provide some fit feedback.

I completely agree, that is why I used that example.  I fact, my best leathers have many small and beautiful wrinkles.

 

Good luck with you new GMTO.

Understood and agreed - I had meant to quote the post to which you were responding.

Re. the GMTO - one point to mention for present and future participants - Gabriel informed me that Bonafe closes down the shop for around 3 weeks over the Christmas season, which will extend the expected delivery time accordingly.

In the normal course of a GMTO you pick the model and hope to find enough people. 

 

Given the comparatively small F-width group, I think we need to pick the people and hope to find a model we can agree on.  The best way might be via group PM.

 

So far I think we have interest from:

 

RogerP

Latecomer

Pbayvip

jrb666

nickrut

 

Sorry - my antique office browser won't let me tag the forum members so they are notified.

 

Could one of you fine gentlemen maybe post the list in the G&G thread?  The more F-width members we get in line, the more likely we will find a model that 6 of us want / need / drool over.

Good stuff gents.  If nobody beats me to it by this evening I'll post in the G&G forum as well.  If we can get 9 or 10 or a dozen guys I like our chances of finding at least 6 to agree on a particular model for F width GMTO.  Start putting together your wish list and I will do the same!

Put me down for the F width group, although I don't really have anything I want at the moment

Unless the order is in green
