    It seems like few of you would like the suede whole cut in navy. I am ok with that to get us over the line.

    I'll also pm the people who show intial interest if they will still be interested in the navy.

    Tchoy, my first choice is black but would love blue if there's no interest in black. Can you let me know how land lies and details?

    Thanks in advance

    I think very. The loden color is quite muted, it is a very grey/green if that makes sense...

    Hello everyone!
    Sorry I've been away for awhile, due to traveling and just plain bad wifi at the hotels I've been staying :(
    Just finished a long but very good meeting with Carmina @ Pitti the other day :D

    let me recap some of the MTOs we have going on now (and status of the recently closed ones)

    (currently open MTOs) - please send me a PM if you want to participate!

    1. Navy (or Black) Suede Wholecut in Rain Last
    Thank you tchoy for the idea and taking your time to organize! I know we started the idea with black suede but lot of members have been showing interest in navy suede as well (which is also quite dark and could easily pass for black indoors) For now, I am opening this up for both colors to see what the majority favors and if possible do both colors!

    2. Snuff Suede Plain Toe Loafers
    Will be closing the MTO on Sunday evening, please let me know if you want to jump in on this beautiful summer loafer!

    3. Dark Cognac Shell Longwings in Detroit Last (Double Leather Sole) - 5 interests
    [​IMG]

    4. Saddle Shell Two eyelet Derby in Rain Last - 5 interests
    [​IMG]

    5. Light Cognac Shell Tanker Boots in Soller Last - 5 interests
    [​IMG]

    6. Loden Suede Plain Toe Derby in Forest Last - 2 interests
    7. Navy Calf Jodhpur Boots - 3 interests

    (closed MTOs currently being manufactured)

    1. (973 Perforated Cap Toe Boots / dark cognac shell / Rain Last / Double Dainite) - just confirmed Carmina received small batch of dark cognac shell few weeks back and started on the boots so these should still be on schedule for late March.
    2. (815 Short Wing Derby / saddle shell / Forest Last / Double Leather) - on schedule as well. we have few extra pairs coming in 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9 UK if you would like to reserve your pair!
    3. (905 Five Eyelet Chukka / Dark Brown Suede / SImpson / Dainite) - on schedule for late March
    4. (80372 / Full Strap Loafers / Loden / Uetam) - order completed, should be on schedule for late March as well.

    Those snuff suede loafers are terrific. Loafers are a tough fit for me, but I definitely want to add a snuff something to my lineup.

    And for anyone on the fence about the saddle shell, 2-eyelet Derby, come on down brother, you won't regret it. Gorgeous shoe.

    Steve, Any info on the blue perf cap? I keep looking at those suede wholecuts and drooling. I want to say yes, but not sure they are worth a divorce--very expensive shoes in that case. . . . .

    Yeah, didn't mention the tassel loafers I picked up this week at Paul Stuart (Grenson) -- but she doesn't know about those yet. And maybe she won't ...... :). But those were on sale so they don't count.

    Steve - You're a handsome son of a gun, and you dress the part. You need to start posting fit pics.
