Crockett & Jones MTO Central - Page 330

post #4936 of 6029

Hello gents,

 

I wanted to give a heads up that I have removed myself from the Galway 2 GMTO. Its not reasonable for me at this point in time after the Lindrick and Warlow orders. I will likely be seeking out something else come winter but for now I won't be on the order. Sorry guys.

 

Thanks,

Kevin

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):


I bet your hoping you'll wake up to 40 degree weather tomorrow morning!!

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.

ahh, ok. 335 last and weird angle, and my misunderstanding.

So I think I'm probably an idiot.  When I talked to Lauren initially she had mentioned "a password protected document" as one of the options for payment, and I guess I assumed that was some document that she sends to me to fill out and return.  

 

And so two days ago I emailed her requesting this - and haven't heard back.  I'm guessing I'm stupid and she just meant that I should create a Word document with my payment info and put a password on it and email it to her?

 

One of those missing the forest for the trees moments.

No, you are smarter than you think lol.  There is in fact a password protected document that she should have sent you.  There are several of us who are waiting to hear from her regarding something or another and it seems like she may not have been in today.  In addition I believe she is working on several MTO's at once, which I don't think is common for her.  As such, I suspect her responses to everyone have been a bit slower than usual, with some things perhaps slipping through the cracks.  I would suggest sending a follow up email.

Not that I'm aware of, although that would be a nice option.
As far as I know there are three ways: call them with a credit card number, do a wire transfer from your bank, or fill out a password protected form that they send you, presumably with your credit card or bank info.

I faxed (you remember those) her my cc number.
Then sent a separate email with expiration and security code.

A couple of months ago i put a post on here asking if people were interested in doing a group order with Crockett & Jones for a whiskey cordovan belt. I received a lot of interest . A total of 15 people said they were interested .I then contacted Lauren at Crockett & Jones to see if they would take a single or group order of whiskey cordovan belts . Lauren told me that Crockett & Jones weren't interested in taking the order single or group, even if i got the usual 12 people they require for a shoe or boot order. I have since found out who Crockett & Jones who use to manufacture their belts. I then contacted the manufacturer and they are happy to take an order for whiskey cordovan belts. They put me in contact with a London retailer who the orders would go through.

So here's the deal. The Crockett & Jones dark brown cordovan belt currently retails at £200 plus what ever shipping costs they charge . I am afraid i am unaware of what they charge .
The whiskey cordovan belt that i will describe below would be the same price of £200 plus £10 postage within the UK , postage within Europe and America would £15 . The retailer didn't give me a postage price for any other locations , but I would guess anywhere else would also be £15.

I can't say this is a Crockett & Jones whiskey cordovan belt . It won't be stamped with the words Crockett & Jones

Here's what I can say . The belts will be made by the company that makes the belts for Crockett & Jones . The belts will be made in the same factory , using the same machinery ,and cutting knives. Any manufacturing process that is used to make the dark brown cordovan belts for Crockett & Jones would be used to make these whiskey cordovan belts.''' except the stamping of the words Crockett & Jones''. The people making these belts work for the same company that makes the Crockett & Jones .So to all intense and purposes I can say these whiskey cordovan belts are made by the self same people that make the Crockett & Jones belts in the same factory with the same machines .

MATERIALS USED : As i am sure you are all aware Crockett & Jones sources it's cordovan from the tannery called Horween . These belts will be made using Horween cordovan. In the picture that i have attached showing the whiskey cordovan belt you may notice that the buckle is slightly different to the buckle that is on the Crockett & Jones cordovan belt . That's because the lady at the belt manufactures sent me a picture of the belt form their catalog .The buckle that will be used on this belt order will be the same buckle that is used on the Crockett & Jones cordovan belts . The thread that will be used to stitch these belts to together will be of the same composition and thickness as the thread that is used to stitch together a Crockett & Jones cordovan belt.

BELT SPECIFICATIONS : As i am sure you are all aware cordovan belts are made from 3 pieces of cordovan stitched together . The general consensus on this forum seems to be that people prefer the curvature of the joins on a Crockett & Jones cordovan belt than that of the ones made by Alden and Allen Edmond's. The curvature of the joins and the distances of those joins on these belts will be exactly the same as those joins on a Crockett & Jones cordovan belt. As mentioned earlier the buckle will be the same buckle as the buckle that is on the Crockett & Jones cordovan belt. The width and thickness of the belt will be the same as that of a Crockett & Jones cordovan belt . Lastly sizing the belts will be sized the same the Crockett & Jones belts ''i e sized in inches not the European centimeters method. So a size 36 Crockett & Jones belt will measure the same as a 36 in this belt , after all their made by the same company .

I don't come on this forum much and i very rarely post anything , and i have never participated or organized a group order . So if I am doing any of this incorrectly please give me a break , because I am a bit new to all this. Today is the 9th of August . If your interested in participating in this order please send me you email details by the the 23rd of August .That gives people two weeks to see this post and decide if they want to order a belt . I will then forward your details to the retailer . They will then contact you to take payment .Whether that's by sending you a paypal invoice or taking payment via card is between you and the retailer . So if we then give the retailer until the 1st of September to have collected payment from everyone that wants to participate they would then place the order on the 1st . delivery form the manufacture to the retailer would be about 6 weeks . The retailer would then post the belts on to you .

If i have done any of this incorrectly , I am would only to pleased for someone to point out any errors that I have made regarding the ordering of these belts

hey @mosy 

 

Any updates from Lauren on the Lindrick?

post #4948 of 6029

Small update on the GMTO C&J Whiskey Cordovan Marlow PTB - as of Monday we had received 9/12 people's payment information, so we're still on hold. I am not certain who has not paid, but they have now been warned twice. If anyone would like to jump on the order as a backup, we may have up to 3 available spots. Shoot me a message to learn more.

The group decided on danite (that is what the photo uses) - almost exactly like the photo except that is on 335 and we're talking the 325 last and we're talking about adding eyelets.
