    The break in period is a little longer on the 12F so I went with 12.5. Both actually fit me really well after time.

    Typo on the deposit page, should be 75% instead of 50%.

    I'd be in if there were sufficient interest in a British Racing Green.

    Well, alright, with these EG price increases, hard not to try and get orders started...who would be interested in a Nevis, in country calf like this one, but in dark oak rather than rosewood, on either commando or dainite sole? I'm really enjoying the Shannon GMTO, and this seems like the perfect more casual, harder wearing, complement.

    That is too similar to the Thorpe GMTO going on.

    Edward Green does not allow GMTO anymore, so it would have to be individual MTO.

    Aha, good info, thanks guys. Somehow I either never knew or had forgotten about that change at EG. Thorpe does look nice but I'm looking for a darker color, and EG lasts fit me better anyway. Now pardon me while I email Skoak. If anyone wants to join me in an individual MTO, you're of course welcome.

    Go for walnut country calf. It's a true dark brown and would look killer. You could do the ridgeway sole if you want something thicker than Dainite

    Yep, walnut looks exactly right. Will have to think about the sole issue. And the last. I don't want something too sleek. Might just use whichever last is in the photograph I quoted.

    Thanks for this. I know my current Carmina in snuff suede have a brown liner and think this may be the safest option for our GMTO.

    I tried it with a darker grey which might work but I felt it would not be optimal. At that point I'd just prefer dark brown suede. However, in a pinch you could swing a couple shades darker with the snuff suede shoes. Someone can feel free to disagree with me here.
