    Kev, see my comment below. I need a pair and I think these MTO's are a great opportunity to capitalize.

    You have one commited purchaser for anything in, preferably, Austerity Brogue or some variation of wingtip, non shell, suede, blue or burgundy/oxblood. :slayer: :slayer: :slayer:

    And if you have the Miller's in size 11US and they don't fit, I got dibs!!

    I have some Oxblood Vass on their way, doesn't have to be dark brown, but prefer a year-round brown.

    I cannot wait either. Are we still on track for October delivery? Just seems that AS has been behind on every MTO so far

    All the mto's are taking slightly longer than anticipated and apologies for this - mainly because of the long order times for Cordovan pushing the timeline back.

    Also, they are all being hand lasted and this also takes a little longer. They will be worth the wait, I'm sure and we want to get these absolutely right.

    Thanks for the update. I'm in no hurry myself and I'd rather wait a little extra for a superior product. Do you have an estimated date of completion. I want to put something on the shoo calendar

    Both are cool colors, I think chestnut is darker, more year round. I was looking at my AS Cherry Wilsons and they seem light.

    Any thoughts on Mahogany or Oak? The chestnut on AFPOS looks darker than Namor's.

    Makes sense for sure. I am just excited for my first pair of cordovan and my first bal boot. Popping my cherry on multiple things.
