No one at AAAC joining on the Dundee?

Thought we'd be able to round up the last few.

Yeah it's strange, people must just not be into punch captoe boots? Odd because this is going to be such a rare makeup, and it's such a beautiful boot.

It is on Reddit - link can be found HERE. I put it on there a while back (4 months or so) but don't really get how Reddit works... Does anyone know how I can get the Reddit thread to be more visible? At the moment it's lost at the rear end of 4 months of other threads.

maybe just start a new thread? not sure if that violates how that forum works or not, but I think if it does they'll simply move it to the appropriate place. but i suspect it will be fine

Gentlemen,

 

The StyleForum interface will not let me do a mass PM.

 

Sorry...

 

Thanks.

Watchman did a great job managing you up in that thread you started on AAAC, but I think you would have had more success if someone more invested in the other forums had been the one to introduce the GMTO. AAAC, SF and Reddit have different cultures. The best analogy I can think of is a Texan dishing out business cards in Japan. Or maybe like someone speaking Spanish in Brazil.

Hoit,

 

I figured that you would not get the overwhelming response over on AAAC that you hoped for...

 

Just didn't want to break the news to you...:crazy:

 

The chaps on AAAC are a totally different breed.  There are threads that are hundreds of posts long that are those guys arguing back and forth about how immoral jeans are...

 

I actually like AAAC very much, but I am a classicist too.  Albeit not the jean hating kind.

@hoit1981 

 

I am actually tentatively interested in the Dundee.  But my; "Doe Ray Me" is a bit more stretched right now.

post #3805 of 6033
I think the Dundee will be killer. But my discretionary funds are a bit low now. If it was all eyelet and dainite, I would probably sell off something to get these.

Dundee is proving to be an unexpected struggle. I'm getting pretty close to calling it quits and just ordering a Vass 1180 in Antic Cognac Cordovan...

Bro, I think that is actually a really good idea.

 

There's no shame in going that route.  Personally, I would go Vass over C&J most times anyway.

 

At this time, I am still ratholing a pair of grail boots to offload when Vass gets more whiskey.

That's unfortunate... Have some hope. Mainly cause I wouldn't know how to even begin on this. Really looking forward to this GMTO.

I wonder if Enzo Bonafe does something similar? If so, you'd only need 3-4 for a gMTO. Unfortunately, their prices went up on March 1. Otherwise, they'd have been fairly competitive price-wise with the Dundee.

I had previously contemplated a perforated captoe boot with either Mahogany or Dark Cognac on 363MOD last with antique welt/edge and antique brass eyelets/hooks which SkoAB said could be done...Not sure whether EB could do the other details of the Dundee.

Just an update for anyone in on the Shell Cordovan Lindrick. Any email from Lauren this morning:

 I am expecting these back with myself early next week. From here it does take me a little while to go through all of the shoes and to get them sent out, however when I have them back I will send an e-mail out to everyone to keep them updated.
