Whiskey Shell Cordovan is such a fabulous shade to pair with those woolen flannels and cords.  Especially the gray and brown variety. 

Totally agreethe whiskey will be epic.

Great. Its pretty soon after the last few so it will probably take a bit of time for interest to peak. Ill keep you updated with any developments.

I know its borderline blasphemous but I'm not too interested in whiskey shell (right now, anyway). Although, I think it would look brilliant given how awesome the whiskey Skyes turned out but Im more interested in a darker color.

I have no idea if that can be done, to be honest. Im sure its been requested for other similar models but I don't know for sure. Can I ask why you would prefer a gusseted tongue, out of curiosity. As far as the color goes, I'm not against color 8 as I really enjoy the way CJ finishes their cordovan in general. In my mind, the standard Lindrick is perfect but I'm open to modifying the eyelets and sole. 

 

Right now its about gauging interest so ill probably bring it up again as time goes on. 

 

Thanks for the feedback!

I generally have issues, I think due due to my weird instep, of tongues going off center.  A bellows or gusset prevents that.  For me, at the very least I'd want a tongue stay, just for peace of mind!

 

I already have a pair of skyes in whiskey, so I'm not very interested in another whiskey pair.  Color 8 would nicely fit a hole in my rotation as I don't have a burgundy boot. As for other options I'd prefer no-speedhooks, and for sole I'd prefer double leather as I don't tend to wear my shell in inclement weather.  But I'd be okay with dainite as well.

Definitely interested.  Need something other than a shade of brown.  Color #8/navy/dark green would be what I want the most.

If you guys were still wondering about the next steps after the a GMTO order has been placed. After the order was sent to the factory, we received official hard copies of the receipt (printed from the cash register) and a friendly letter by air mail for the Lindrick GMTO; this is a nice touch.

if you start a navy shell boot GMTO with minimal broguing, I'm in. 5 eyelets/4 speed hooks and a plain toe/captoe would also be preferable.

Considering the angular shape of the toe box, I do not mind the cap toe on this one. The cap toe may be removed, but that will cost extra as it is considered a "pattern change".

Let me know if you are interested.

Also interested.  

 

I am good with the captoe but am also fantasizing whether it would be even nicer with (i) medallion and (ii) without the captoe.  Just a humble suggestion for consideration of fellow interested gents.

 

Grateful to BurntPockets and the SF community in general for making all these possible.

post #4288 of 6011

BurntPockets, I am good to go on these! Sign me up! The captoe does worry me since they don't always go with my feet. Also would need help on sizing. Medallion I am ambivalent on. But I like the idea of these.

I like this idea too. I think navy shell would be awesome so either BurntPockets's Camberly or a boot. I would prefer a plain no-cap toe and broguing can be left to others same with eyelets and speedhooks.

post #4290 of 6011

Great to have you guys on board! Between SF and reddit, we have 6 interested already. Will start compiling the list shortly
