    Thanks again for offering these special make-ups. Regarding the tree prices of £80/£150, am I correct to assume that these include VAT? Can you elaborate more on the difference between the regular compared to the boot tree?

    I did not realize toe taps are an option.

    Is it too late to add toe taps to the previous MTO order (shell double monks Ramsey)?

    Should be fine - just confirm your order number by PM and we will add these on for you.

    Yes you are correct , these prices include VAT - they are £66.66 without VAT for the AS Lasted shoe trees and £125 without VAT for the AS lasted boot trees. We have asked the manufacturer for some more details and pictures for the boot trees and will post as soon as I have them early next week.

    Justin,

    just a quick clarification, the boot, the grained calf on the shaft, it is a fine PIN grain right? And not the really coarse Scotch grain, is that correct?

    Oh gosh, yes, sorry Julian. - all sorted though, Sarah and I are communicating already.

    Thanks for the great MTO opportunity, it has been a great pleasure to participate and to watch how the whole process progressed so smoothly.

    These are going to be fantastic boots and shoes.

    Very exciting!

    Thanks AFPOS

    Both mto orders are in with AS and confirmed - lots of Horween Cordovan Cognac Shells have been ordered and ready to start the crafting process...

    I will post some pictures when the AS Miller & AS Benson mtos are progressing.

    Any questions, let me know but thank you for your orders and your co-operation!!

    I have a good feeling that our MTO will look very much like the bal boot in this pic... except ours will be shell. :slayer:
