    ^if you guys want to check back with me after the new year, this has always been on my list of to-get since I saw the original. But I can't commit to anything right now. Would be hot with a red lining.

    @dalevy new year would be fantastic! With the EB button boot this December and Lazyman this November, I think January would be just fine for 804 black captoes. Are you OK with that timing @ThunderMarch?

    Absolutely, I would do anything, to get this GMTO going.

    Speaking of which, I have gathered enough interest for a EB wingtip spectator GMTO in Vitello Giamaica and Hidro Lino. This will also happen in December. If anyone wishes to join in.......

    Ok January it is then. Thanks for the heads up on the spectator but, however I think I need to maintain it at one MTO per month otherwise newborns colleg fund will be completely wiped out :)

    Keep me in the loop on the 804 captoe guys. Might have to do that one (if no red lining - sorry). January works well.

    Heh. Funny you mention that. So to clarify, I'm on the fence. I want the shoe, but deciding to go forward will be another matter. I should be able to make a decision in January. Other things, clothing and non-clothing related, may take precedence. I'd say 50-50 right now.

    But certainly do not let me hold you up if you find someone else.

    @thundermarch @watchidiot

    I'm down for January GMTO for the black captoe as well. Keep me posted as we get closer.

    Looks like we have more than enough to get this GMTO going in January. I think 5-6 people are in now.

    Details:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Plain captoe balmoral with hidden seams
    EB ref 3863 in black calf
    Last 804
    270deg handwelted
    Single leather sole
    Black welt, edge dressing

    I'll create a group chat with everybody who has shown interest so far so as not to clog the Skoak thread. Again this is for January.

    Thank you very much for the summary, and for putting it together.
    Am very much looking forward to this GMTO.

    The only other black shoes I have is a Florsheim 3 eyelet derby which I bought in 2011. This will be my first proper black dress shoe and should fill in any need for black shoes.

    ...

    That said If the 804 turns out as good as it looks then maybe a black wholecut in 804 wouldn't be a bad idea in the far far future.
