or lord, those are such a beauty LeviMay...
Is there a sale going on the MTOs?
-INDEPENDENCE LINING & INSOLE
-DOUBLE BUTYLE LEATHER SOLE
-MEDIUM BROWN TRANSPARENT EDGE DRESSING
-WHEELED EDGING & FUDGING
-EVERYTHING ELSE DEFAULT
WTF?!?!!? I was told wheeled edges were not doable on any shoe that is not part of the Independence line!
This is frustrating.
Also, how did you size considering the Indy insole? Whats an AE top lift?
My first MTO (Cappuccino MacNeil) was also different from what I requested. Interestingly, my issue was identical to bl@ster's. I requested natural welt and natural sole edge and ended up with the natural welt and transparent brown sole edge. I did not bother returning them (it was my first MTO and I was not sure I was allowed to) and the make up actually looked quite alright, but nevertheless different from what I had been envisioning.
Well my MTO Eagle County arrived today. Order was placed early January and with the following specs:
BROWN BURNISHED CALF- CAPTOE VAMP FOXING, GUSSET, PULLTAB, TONGUE
BROGUE SUEDE-QUARTERS AND EYESTAY
INDEPENDENCE LINING AND INSOLE
WHEELED EDGES BROWN
DARK BROWN EDGE DRESSING
Unfortunately, I don't think the calf portion of the boot is made with Brown Burnished Calf... I don't know if there was some confusion over Brown Burnished Calf and Dark Brown Burnished Calf? The samples i received for Brown Burnished Calf were the same color as all my Dark Brown Burnished Calf AE's, but the MTO is significantly lighter. Not sure what I think of the contrast between the calf and suede yet...
I've looked through the website and one of the older catalogs and haven't seen a Brown Burnished Calf that looks like the calf part of my MTOs. I'll probably think it over and may be reach out to Allison. Thoughts? Sorry for the cell quality pictures.
While I would have also preferred the darker brown, those still look amazing. GOSH I wish I had caught the MTO on the eagle counties. Those definitely look like the EG galways at a fraction of the cost. I think we are all jealous of you haha!
I got this from Allison: "We have also made a few changes to the program. In the past footwear was not charged until time of shipping and the options were virtually endless without an upcharge. Now the footwear will be charged at time the order is placed. The Rendenbach (JR) outsole will only be used on cordovan orders. The independence lining and insole will only be offered at the $495.00 price range. Cordovan is only available in black, burgundy and brown."
