Crockett & Jones MTO Central - Page 209

post #3121 of 6050
Sent my email to Pernilla. I expect it is only a matter of time before this makeup gets made again - even if that's after we get our first run and pics are posted. By the time that happens we could be headed into spring anyway. (Sorry Bootspell, I'd like to be more optimistic but it's not in me...) Anyway thanks again Nigel. Hopefully people will move quickly and submit payment info ASAP.

Thanks for your efforts.  Now can you expedite the order, please?  (jk)

I definitely understand what you guys are saying, Nigel has organized this whole thing and can run the list how he pleases. Nigel's post from Saturday updated the status of the first list with 8 names confirmed, and also included the order of the second/reserve list. Then on Sunday morning he opened it up to the first 4 to confirm, resulting in 3 people below me on the reserve list jumping over me, plus another member getting in on the first 12 who wasn't even on the original list to begin with.

I'm just frustrated because I've been checking this thread every day for the past few weeks, including posting and voting on the proposed makeup, and I was skipped over because I didn't log in on a Sunday morning.

Again, I get that these GMTO's can be impossible to pull together so I don't blame him, I'm just bummed that I missed out in this manner.

Thanks, appreciated. As you know it's the first time I've been involved in a GMTO in any capacity, and I tried to be fair but also keep the thing moving, especially after losing 7 or 8 names in a pretty short space of time

Yeah, I was just joshing Nigel.  There is some basis for being optimistic.  The last GMTO from C&J I was involved in was the first whiskey shell Harlech boots, and those were delivered pretty much on schedule, at 15 weeks from the date our credit cards were charged.  Regardless, I don't mind if it's spring when they arrive.  I wear boots all year round anyway.  :->>

I emailed CJ today how fast is the response time usually?

Just sent my info over to C&J for the order. The makeup on them looks really fantastic, @nigeljh, did a bang-up job, especially for his first GMTO. I'm pretty stoked to see the zug leather.

 

I know getting sizing advice on the internet comes with an implicit caveat emptor, but I figured I'd ask for consensus: I have a pair of Skye boots on the 335 last which are tight in the vamp/instep but otherwise fit great. I am concerned as to whether or not I should I take the same size in the Snowdons on the 228 last or size up? The Skyes are fairly new and I have only really begun wearing them regularly now that it is fall, so anyone who has had a pair for a long time: do they stretch at all in the vamp? I pretty much have to wear the Skyes with dress socks right now, but hope to wear the Snowdons with thicker socks.

Thanks.

 

I've had my Skyes for a bit over 2 years and worn them quite a lot. They've always been worn with thickish socks and have definitely become a little more comfortable. Fwiw I'm going with the same size in the Snowdons.

Quick reminder for those on the Snowdon GMTO; if you haven't sent through your order and payment details as detailed in the PM, please do. If anyone has changed their mind don't worry there are reserves champing at the bit!

 

Thanks to all those that acted promptly

I think the more important question is whether those Skye are right length? The vamp on derby shoes/boots usually stretches but if the vamp is tight due to the shoes being short than it is unlikely that vamp will stretch.
I had a pair of Skye and they were too tight in the toe box for me, they were clearly too short for my feet. I should have gone a half a size up from my usual C&J size. Caveat emptor indeed.

Emailing my info now.

Does anyone remember what the whiskey shell Harlech GMTO last was? I took at 10.5e for that...wondering what size for this.

341

if you are asking about 335; this one is a little roomier in toe box, not quite as long... but fairly sure most everyone take the same.
