    Pricing on those Chelsea's? I'd consider a GMTO.

    Do any of you fine folks know if there's a museum calf variant that's similar to EG's Acorn?

    Would probably be gold museum calf, with the caveat that it can vary depending on batch and tannery. Skoak did carry one EB model in that color awhile back, if you want a reference point.

    Patrik, I hate you a bit at the moment. I just purchased pair of Shanklins, put deposit on GMTO Glencoe and wanted to put deposit on GMTO St.James II Kudu/Cedar but instead I just purchased these boots for my wife. Hope she will like them and hope, I will put the deposit on GMTO St.James II Kudu/Cedar on time [​IMG].

    IN. So much for stanching my shoe penchant. I would prefer non-rubber soles, but I will go happily with the prevailing tide.

    What do you call that pattern anyway? All I can think of is basket weave, but I'm sure there is a more elegant term.

    Adding to the Gable mix in black hatch. I love how this shoe makes unconventional colors/patterns work so well. Cheers to Gable in Racing Green too.

    Apropos of nothing in particular, at dinner the other night, I happened to have a couple of Swedish waitresses (at Surfer's Paradise on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia - the world's a small place these days) and seized the opportunity to obtain expert assistance in the pronunciation of the name of our favourite Stockholm shoe store.

    I've been practising it ever since, and reckon by about some time in 2019, I'll get it right.

    Haha! Nice.

    I think Patrik or one of the fine chaps at the store should post a vid or at least a soundbite of the correct pronunciation....

    All right, it looks like we have our six and those who have expressed a preference prefer leather soles. Keal19 would also like flush metal toe taps.

    So I've got -

    Rain Last
    Leather Sole
    Metal Toe Taps (perhaps this could be an option)

    I, for one, would also want lasted trees.



    Patrik, please look into this for us.
