    Well done - you can have either last in E, F or G fitting.

    Thank you - AS Miller mto is a month in and starting their journey - the 2 wk summer factory shut down is coming soon too, but all is looking good to stay on track with the estimated 16 weeks production time.

    About to take a well earned holiday at the end of this week for 2 weeks - I will keep an eye on mto developments and we can pick back up after the holidays.

    We have been busy making some improvements to our site that will hopefully benefit non-EU customers - now VAT will be deducted automatically after you enter your country in the check out screens instead of entering the NOVAT code.

    Also, all ex-VAT prices are also shown in brackets on each product page to give you a more accurate idea of the price.

    I hope you like the changes and look forward to delivering some fine shoes in the coming months.

    I think we still have a couple more months to go. I believe the whiskey DM are scheduled for the end of Sept/early Oct and I think the bal boots are a month behind.

    I'm getting anxious I want them to be done fast! Fall clothing is coming out of my closet and I just need the perfect boot to complete it.

    All our Horween Shell mto with Alfred Sargent are all hand lasted, and therefore take a little longer and for that will be very well made indeed. Alfred Sargent anticipate the Cognac Shell mto to be completed by the end of November.

    I'm pleased to hear that they're progressing well. Although I very much look forward to receiving the boots, heaven forbid AS should rush the job, which I'm sure they wouldn't do regardless. Anyway I still have an unworn pair of EG Galways ready for the chillier weather :embar:
