Because it's a plain toe, chukkas in cordovan need to be a perfect fit I feel.

I see what do you think of the plain toe boot? For example Galway 1 that somebody posted while ago. It is a pity that C&J offer only four cordovan colors.

You are more than welcome to submit a ballot and if that wins majority favor, I'll turn the GMTO over to you as I will definitely be out.

Sorry. Stuck with cell phone only for the next few days and wouldn't know how to do a ballot from here. Also would not have the time to handle a GMTO and appreciate your time. Should a ballot come up with hidden eyelets (I like the look so much better) I would jump in, otherwise I am out.

So we only have 5 so far?  I think if we can get to 10 or 11, I might be able to convince my friend to join in on the GMTO.  Thought there was more interest.

I'm in too. though I would prefer Ridgeway soles or Commando Elite Rubber. Dainite is too city sleek for my liking and doesn't really fare that well if there is some real weather conditions that calls for a proper boots. Kind of like these kids rocking eyewear without lenses...

I'm still in, but not a big fan of the sole selection. Too much of a city slicker sole smile.gif

But if that's what the people want, I'm still in. Ridgeway would be the perfect compromise, and they could also deal with some snow if needed.

Fwiw I wear dainite throughout the Boston winter

^ Also maybe consider that a light whiskey color may not be particularly suitable for trudging through salt and slush in the winter. I'm not really one to baby my shoes, but I really consider these a spring - autumn boot.

Halfway there guys! Also, if you'd like to be on the list, just go ahead and copy it,add yourself in the next spot and paste it.

If I didnt buy a MTO Saddle Jumper boot from Carmina, I'd be all over this!

post #3417 of 6050
I have to remove myself from the list after deciding that it's a little too similar to another makeup I own. Here's the updated list:

I'll be happy with any sole or eyelet option to see this Whiskey boot get through  the voting process :D 

post #3419 of 6050
Oh no, sounds like this is slowing down. Anyone else?

Don't fret old boy, all will come together in due time!

 

On another note...I visited C&J this afternoon while on business travel in Manhattan. I think our GMTO is going to look incredible once complete. The whiskey shell sampling he showed me looked perfect. Also the brass they use for eyelets are subtle and subdued compared to Alden's shiny bits...They should look very clean, sleek, and classy.
