Thanks in advance Jamaican
Dude, my first order a Hove derby shoe (ordered in April 2007) took 3 1/2 months, the Rothschild brogue (ordered en of October 2007) took 7 months and the Cannes (ordered early January 2008) took 5 months on the dot.
As for MTO options, check out the gazianogirling.com website: In short there are a good few designs (see the benchmade section on the website), each of which can be put on one of the four last shapes (except for the slip-ons which only have one last). These can be made in a wide variety of leathers (analine dyed) and crust leathers. Cost is around 550 plus 87 for lasted shoe trees. Since you are in Manchester, I'd check out Edwards, Barton Arcade in Deansgate.
Ooops forgot to mention that there are differentsole options including crepe, oak bark (with the fiddle), double sole and more.
