lol, well what he said was plausible so it did make me panic a little. When one brand starts or stops doing something the others tend to follow suit. I wouldn't be surprised if GG and Carmina stopped doing it in the near future. EG and Meermin already did. It must not make much sense to do it financially I guess.
Thank you for your generosity @Leaves. You mentioned no exotic so I assume their crust calf, suede, and pebble grains are acceptable? Also, is this for shoes or also boots (e.g., Shannon, Epsom, Nevis)? Any restrictions for more complex work (i.e., pig-bristle toe)? I assume using the new 890 last would also be okay? I just want to be clear on the options.
I'm ready to for a bidding war!
Any boot or shoe. 890 last for sure but, remember only standard MTO program so no last changes except those specified by Edward Green as standard lasts for that style.
