Hey sorry about your experience. Can you show some pics.

By the way, is that the whiskey run on the 335?

Spoke with Lauren today.  All 12 members have been in contact and many have submitted payment:

 

Thanks to the following members who have paid:

 

@louisnkh

@kwhitelaw

@stephenaf2003

@JayDotz

@hautelook82

 

There is one more who paid; However Lauren did not have this person's SF username so I'm not sure who it was.  The name given to Lauren was Nicholas S.  If this is you, please PM me.

 

Still pending:

 

@Vincent Chanal

@KPDarb

@IGotId

@mrsolitonwave

@sacMonkey

@BackInTheJox

 

One of you is probably Nicholas S.  Once you PM me I'll update the list to reflect that you have paid.  

 

I know that some of you are still figuring out your size.  I'm hoping everyone will be finalized with size and payment info within the next few days so that the order can be finalized and sent to production.  

 

Edited to add:  Lauren is dealing with multiple GMTO's.  Some of the people in this MTO are in other ones as well.  I imagine it's possible that some of the members on the "pending" list above did pay and perhaps you were omitted from the "paid" list as an oversight.  If that is the case, please PM me and I will sort it out with Lauren as soon as possible.

 

 

LINDRICK UPDATE 8/2:

 

Lauren had mistakenly omitted @Vincent Chanal from the paid list.  Thanks Vincent!

 

@KPDarb sent payment yesterday.  Thanks!

 

PAID LIST

 

@louisnkh

@kwhitelaw

@stephenaf2003

@JayDotz

@hautelook82

@Vincent Chanal

@KPDarb

@mrsolitonwave

 

 

AWAITING CONFIRMATION:

 

@IGotId

@sacMonkey

@BackInTheJox

 

We are almost there!!

Edited to add @mrsolitonwave to the "paid" list - he was the mystery Nicholas S!

Now that I've ironed or my sizing, I'm just waiting to receive the passworded document from Lauren so I can give her my payment info.

IDK why I feel compelled to say that this seems to be a very minor issue.

 

If you wouldn't have pointed it out, I would not have noticed.

 

However, I also know what its like to get your hopes up for a grail only to be let down...

 

Nevertheless, those are some incredible boots my friend.  Enjoy them!

I'm with you Akeem, this is in no way minor, the shoes aren't crazy expensive, but it is clearly not something one would expect for the price one pays for them. I've never seen that before; that's really bad! Man, I hope I've not screwed up by ordering these shoes.

I think that's just the angle of the camera shot and the fact that they are on the 335 last. I don't believe that's his issue. His issue I think is that the eyelets don't meet up perfectly. And he's right about that. However overall it's hard to notice that. I would probably also be disappointed about it but I think it's something he'll stop noticing after a few wears and a million compliments.

it isn't a major issue, but one that you don't expect when you pay the single MTO fee. on to the next brand for me.

yes, 335 last @mosy

I'm with you re the single MTO fee.  

post #4932 of 6052
Oh wow....I didn't know you went that route....I thought these were a GMTO....

Hmmm......perhaps they may even out with some wear.

I have paid hefty single MTO fees and had the maker forget specs....very disappointing....

Best wishes.

Pernilla sent out tracking numbers to each member after shipping; it took about 3 business days for delivery. Soon guys, soon... in the meantime enjoy the Lindricks that just came in

 

 

 

By the way, were these pictured right out of the box, or did you condition these at all first?  Also what kind of lighting for this shot?

It was straight out of the box, but I did swap out the laces for the Viberg narrow brown rubbery laces that usually come with the blind eyelet boots. It was shot in direct sunlight coming in from my window in the morning. I used a manual mirrorless camera to capture all the light (without the glare).

Here's another comparison, shot right now with the sun setting in USA East coast time

 

Direct window sunlight (there is some nice burnish effect on my wing tip area):

 

Indirect sunlight in front of the window (much darker and consistent):
