Personally, I think that if the majority decided they wanted no medallion and Dainite I would have to leave the GMTO, as this would not be the boot I intended to get. I really want a medallion and double leather, so if I can't get at least one of those I'll drop out.

Gentlemen,

 

I just spoke with Lauren via telephone this time.  She said C&J does not want to make the Cottesmore in Navy Shell Cordovan because it is too risky when the cordovan is heated up on the last, there is too great a chance for the leather to not shape correctly etc.

 

Thanks

i understand your position. which one do you care about more? since you initiated the GMTO (i think) you should just make one of those items non-negotiable, and if folks drop out then so be it. seems like the medallion is a bigger deal because you can always get them resoled down the line, but you can't add a medallion. as i've mentioned before, i have warmed up to the idea of the medallion and am in either way.

hoit has been pushing this boot for a while now. he really should get to choose the specs he wants.

Thanks for this, and yes I'm really beginning to think that I need the medallion. I can live with Dainite (although not preferable), but feel that stylisticly I'm hankering for a medallion.

I voted for danite and no medallion. But if I would be very happy if I just get the danite. Medallion or no medallion is ok with me..

In regards to the Dundee...

 

Do we have enough for potentially 2 orders?  One with and one without medallion?  Seems like a lot are looking to join (now) and if the medallion is a requirement in the original Dundee GMTO then my friend will drop out and I may as well.

 

Sorry @hoit1981 do you happen to have a fuller list?

 

It does seem we're sincerely really close to 24.

 

 

I have no preference whatsoever on the sole but as someone mentioned, you can get that changed if need be down the line whereas the medallion will be there (or not) forever.

Pretty sure the list is all that's interested - 14 people.

My friend has officially dropped out. I kept reading people asking to join the list should there be any who dropout. If there's enough to get 2 sets of 12,with and without medallion that'd be great.

Feel free to check, but I'm pretty sure that with your friend dropping out that makes 13.
post #3899 of 6050
Will check when I get home but I thought I read a few who are wanting to join the waiting list
post #3900 of 6050
think i counted 9 who would go for the design with the medallion. i've only been on this for a few days and i'm already anxious to get folks on board, no idea how you stuck with it for so long hoit.
