It has a sleeker look (the 240).  There's a guy on youtube (maybe it's one of you?) who has a video comparing the Marlow and the BB 240 lasted shoe.  I like his videos, he's got a lot of shoes/boots I wish I had!

When the first models on the 240 last began to hit the bricks I thought that I liked the 240 better than 325.

 

After wearing both models for quite some time now, I concluded that I do indeed like the 325 better.

 

CJ 325 is one of the best lasts I have ever worn from any maker.

 

Thanks.

I agree.  The 240 may be a bit sleeker but does not work for my foot as well as the 325.  I also like the extra height in the toe box on the 325, both for fit and aesthetics.

325 is a great last, both fit and aesthetics.  Love it.

@BackInTheJox

 

We now have 13 interested participants for the LINDRICK!

 

For fairness the first 12 listed above will have the opportunity to be part of this.  Should anyone choose to exit, then number 13 will be in.  If anyone else wants to be on the waiting list, just add your info to the spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bZ6_ctp_ElaAqFORjMMnwLZw_BRkxZV59z6rk5SvZhk/edit?usp=sharing 

 

The main specs will be:

 

325 Last

Dark Brown Shell

Double Leather Sole

Antique Edge

Storm Welt

Eyelets

 

Price:

EU Customers: 700 GBP including VAT (not sure of delivery price to EU countries.  Let me know which country and I'll find out.

Non-EU Customers: 583.36 GBP (aprox $754.00 in today's rate).  Delivery to USA is 30 GBP (approximately $39 today)

 

Some of you wanted to know about metal toe taps and whether or not we can choose the color of the lining.  I have an email out to Lauren inquiring about the possibility of these specs on an individual basis.

 

EDIT:  If anyone above wants to exit, please be so kind as to send me a PM.  Thanks!

 

I'm seeing 5 for eyelets and 5 for 4x4 on the spreadsheet. I would really prefer speed hooks on my boots but I will go with the majority, can luisnkh or kwhitelaw chime in and state a preference?

Since it was 5 and 5 (with the other 2 not caring either way), I took the liberty to go with my preference, as the organizer of this MTO (not to mention creator of the MTO spreadsheet) :).

 

Is that acceptable?

Is that acceptable?

In addition, the original Lindrick boot was all eyelets. That was the other reason I went with eyelets when I saw that it was a 5-5 split.

Hi all.  There are 13 members listed above.  I heard back from 11 of you (including myself) with confirmation that you are still in.  There are 2 who I haven't heard back from yet.  One is @sacMonkey but he added himself to the list pretty recently and also posted on the forum just a few days ago regarding this MTO.  So I'm pretty confident he is still in (but if you can PM me your confirmation anyway I would appreciate it).  There is one more member who has not posted about this MTO recently, and has not responded to my request for confirmation just yet.  How much time should I give him before we exclude him, as we do seem to have 12 others?  (If he does respond that he is in, @bcloudy has graciously offered to give up his spot.)

 

Lauren did get back to me today - indeed she was off last week.  She requested that we begin emailing her individually beginning next week Monday, as she is backlogged from being away. (I'm sure it would be ok to do it over the weekend, as she will get your emails when she comes in on Monday.  I'll try to send out reminders over the weekend to each of you.  In the meantime I will be sending her a list of the 12 final members (once finalized - hopefully today).  I will be using your Style Forum usernames since I don't know most of your real names.  Therefore when you do email her, make sure to include your SF username so she knows to connect you to this MTO.

 

@stephenaf2003 (and anyone else who is interested):  Flush metal toe taps will cost an additional 40 GBP (aprox. $52 using the current exchange rate).  You will need to specify that you want them when you are emailing your size and mailing info.

 

@rssmsvc - unfortunately choosing the color of the interior lining is not an available option.

 

Post or PM me with any questions.

 

I'm excited!!!!!

Either of you interested in a navy cordovan SWB? I'm not picky with respect to last (240 or 325)

Sorry, not at this time. Right now focused on trying to wrap up the Lindrick.

Nope, I had you as in. Thanks!

Right now we have one on the fence (supposed to give me final answer today) and one not responsive. If both are out we will need to look for one more.
post #4845 of 6049

OK WE HAVE DONE IT!!  LINDRICK GMTO is full at 12!!  Thanks everyone for your patience as we gathered the people.

 

@bcloudy - one of the 13 has not been responding so you are still in.  But thank you for your graciousness in offering to let someone else have your spot.  You are a true gentleman.

 

 

Below is a list of the final 12 participants:

 

@mosy

@louisnkh

@bcloudy

@kwhitelaw

@stephenaf2003

@Vincent Chanal

@KPDarb

@JayDotz

@IGotId

@mrsolitonwave

@sacMonkey

@BackInTheJox

 

 

On Sat night or Sunday I will PM each of you to remind you to email Lauren with your sizes, any special specs (like metal toe taps), and mailing address.  And at some point you'll probably have to call her with your payment info - unless that can be done via email as well - we'll have to ask her.  I'll also include her email address and phone number.

 

Thanks everyone!!
