    I'll be able to make a more definite/informed decision once we find out about VAT and also the lead time. Still interested.

    Hoit, did you ever consider a "fun" lining color, or do you know if they're available? I could ask Lauren, but I have a feeling I'm going to be flooding her inbox in the coming weeks.

    I can't remember if we ever requested a funky colour for the lining? I do remember that we asked for the shoes to be individually numbered (to commemorate the grand occasion) and it was a no-can-do.

    I'm still in and fine with all the details! I would prefer speedhooks, but it's no deal breaker. Now lets hope the 675 includes VAT.

    Thank you for putting this together -- I was quite bummed when I missed out on the first round.

    ^ also, can we choose the color of the danite sole? Personally, I think I would prefer something other than red.

    I'm the opposite, haha. Speedhooks are a dealbreaker for me.

    I assumed the Dainite sole would be dark grey-ish, like it is on my Conistons. I have no interest in a red sole, myself, and will make sure it's like the following:

    Vey interesting news! Is dainite (as opposed to single/double leather) non-negotiable?

    Yes, it is for this run. I hope it doesn't dampen your interest in this GMTO.

    Eyelets it is then [​IMG]


    I'm pretty set on dainite. IDK if I'd back out if we went with leather, but I would highly prefer dainite.

    I know I'm not at the top of the list that expressed interest, but I'm interested. Depending on the final price (VAT versus no-VAT), I'm interested. I definitely want a Dainite sole, and I'm thinking I'd like all eyelets. Can someone check about the final price in USD and if they can exclude VAT?

    ^@Aldenfan, I'll have you third on the "waiting list" in case we have some that drop out. I am waiting to hear back from Lauren regarding VAT, as well as expected delivery times. I fired off my e-mail right after business hours GMT, so we likely will know within a day or so.

    Okay I'll be out then. I will mainly bee using them for spring and autumn on sunny dry days (shell is not very good in wet conditions anyway), so for me a dainite sole wouldn't make much sense. But great initiative and good luck with the project, no doubt you'll have the slots filled up in a jiffy.

    Btw, I'm hoping to get a EG GMTO going very soon for a brogue boot also in whiskey shell, so hopefully I won't be whiskey shell-less by autumn :satisfied:

    Cheers

    :puzzled: I wonder if there is a interests for regular calf Harlech? I know Crockett and Jones has some wonderful calf colors. I may be in for a second helping. Dainite or double leather soles or even ridge way.

    Even without VAT these got expensive! Would be £562.50 minus VAT, or $938!

    Sorry to hear, but I'm glad you still have hope for whiskey this fall!

    Cheers.

    Friends,
    I am still waiting to hear back as to whether £675 is with or without VAT and the expected delivery time, but I was hoping to pin down all the specs so we can place the order once I do get a reply. As it stands, we are at:

    Harlech on 341 last
    Whiskey cordovan (!)
    Dainite sole (dark grey, as in stock Conistons)
    All brass eyelets (open to voting on brass/blind, or combination thereof)
    Storm welt

    So it would basically be like the previous run, except for the eyelets and a dainite sole. I have the following degrees of commitment from members:
    @LeSacre - Confirmed in
    @tifosi - Pending VAT and delivery date
    @ErikW - Pending VAT
    @madridista - "Interested"
    @PartagasIV - "Interested"

    Would you all be in, assuming the price is right? It's not my intention to be pushy; I'm just excited to start waiting for delivery, I guess [​IMG]. And we do have a few members ready to jump in if a spot opens up. Of course, if any would prefer not to have their member ID posted in the thread, I'd be happy to pull it, and communicate via PM.

    Cheers!

    ^ Personally I can't imagine this with brass eyelets. Too casual IMO. Just my $0.02 of course.

    I'm pretty certain that the cost quoted (£675) is including vat - their prices haven't increased that much!
