    Not at all, I will keep you updated

    Right, as soon as we know if hatchgrain and/or Rain is possible, I'll sort the color via private message with all the interested people, even though, by the numbers I have now, we should be sufficient to run one GMTO in dark brown and another one in dark burgundy [​IMG]

    No worries Leaves. I might actually even pull out from the polo suede 905 if I manage to get my size in the restock of the polo suede boot available at your style.

    Not to make this GMTO too complicated and disorganized, but if this is done in some sort of textured leather (hatch/pebble grain) with a rubber sole like tomir I think I'd be in as well. Particularly if you go with soller or another rounded toe last.

    Leaves and Gabriel can confirm here, but when I checked via email and IG they were indeed planning a restock of the polo suede boot currently available at Skoak.

    Carmina Dark Brown Suede Balmoral Boot GMTO

    A quick update on the Carmina dark brown suede balmoral boot (aka RogerP boots) GMTO - we have reached the min required 6 participants. This is a separate GMTO from the polo suede bal boot whose prepayment link is already available at Skoak's.

    This is a proposed a GMTO based on RogerP's dark brown suede balmoral boot in Robert last.

    Specs:
    Balmoral boot in Robert last
    Dark brown suede
    Flat welt
    Single Dainite

    It's this boot

    The 6 confirmed are:
    @watchidiot
    @IronStyle
    @woodstocks
    @toblov
    @JARB
    @NWTeal

    @Leaves, would it be possible to process the order/prepayment for this GMTO to lock in the pre-price hike rates for Carmina boots? The 10% expected increase for boots, though not EG or GG-esque, is still a bit of change and the participation of at least one member in this GMTO is dependent on whether the price could be locked to the current rates same as the current polo suede balmoral boot GMTO.

    For your consideration. Thanks!

    To clarify, the Polo Suede Balmoral Boot is priced at 3520 SEK excluding VAT, but our hope is to get this priced at 3200 SEK excluding VAT, similar to current stock boots on the website.

    Thanks for the clarification NWTeal. Basically we're asking if we could do the same as what the G&G GMTO groups are doing - that is to beat the 28 Feb cut off and avoid price increase if possible :)

    If that's the exact same boot Leatherfoot and @arneben did I would feel kind of a douche for doing a GMTO for it. Have you talked to them about this project first, given its their original idea?

    ^^^ Well, this is a different sole. [​IMG] It's to your credit to take the high road, and while I don't presume to speak for Arne, I think this is just a standard 80092 in standard ante marron - not something of a unique makeup in either style or materials. In my books you guys are both exemplary of all that is good in premium men's footwear retailers. [​IMG]

    Patrik - 2 questions:

    1) How long is this pre-order open on this one, and
    2) Does it jam you up on the Polo U-wing bal boot if I go for this one instead?
