    Those Miltons look superb. Has anyone thought about an Austerity Brogue, in calf, year round color?

    That Milton looks great, love all the extra goodies.

    Miller boot- did our boot have a wingtip? Or medallion?

    I have.

    I didn't want to start it b/c I didn't want to commit the funds right now, but if someone else did, I'd have no choice.

    Here is the AS Blake.

    Personally, I'd be looking for calf in a mid-dark brown on the 48 last. Prefer something darker like Oak.

    Calf should bring the price down a bit compared to shell, which other than the Miltons seem to the favorite choice for MTO.

    Wingtip looks great. Really hoping the MTO crew went with a wingtip

    Kev, see my comment below. I need a pair and I think these MTO's are a great opportunity to capitalize.

    You have one commited purchaser for anything in, preferably, Austerity Brogue or some variation of wingtip, non shell, suede, blue or burgundy/oxblood. :slayer: :slayer: :slayer:

    And if you have the Miller's in size 11US and they don't fit, I got dibs!!

    I have some Oxblood Vass on their way, doesn't have to be dark brown, but prefer a year-round brown.

    I cannot wait either. Are we still on track for October delivery? Just seems that AS has been behind on every MTO so far

    All the mto's are taking slightly longer than anticipated and apologies for this - mainly because of the long order times for Cordovan pushing the timeline back.

    Also, they are all being hand lasted and this also takes a little longer. They will be worth the wait, I'm sure and we want to get these absolutely right.
