    Light antique and crimped edge sounds perfect.

    Would we be able to do a different color than cream if people who buy in agree? Cream is fine though if it is the only option.

    Count me in as #1 for the AS Benson.

    If I order directly from your website, how do I include lasted tree?

    I would have like to join the mto for the Ramsey cordovan earlier, but I saw the post only after the order was closed.

    Final thought, I promise. :embar: Any options as to the medallion on the toe? This seems like a particularly stellar choice:

    Thanks for the heads up, so you intend to size down an entire size aand slim down to an "E" width? My C&J 337 measure 33cm x 11.4 as do most of my other balmoral dress shoes. Based on that, I would need a UK11.5E? The measurements for the 11.5F - 32.9cm x 11.5 - seem a little wide. An 11UK looks too short.

    Yes, I will be a 9.5E.

    If the sole measurements match like you said, you should be fine.

    The pattern has to be as the AS Benson & AS Miller are. At this level of mto we can set the materials used and the colour and the last. Further changes would need to go up to AS Handgrade level where you can effect all items, but for a greater price.

    Thanks for confirming. About to place my preorder for the Benson.

    Just wanted to confirm that the edge trim will be light antique with a crimping detail. I have seen cognac with the light antique versus dark edgetrim and it makes a world of difference in my opinion.

    Thanks for putting this together and giving us the opportunity to purchase a Handgrade model that is beautiful at an Exclusive pricepoint. Hopefully, we can get enough people together to make this happen.

    Yes, we will go with the light antique welt and crimped finish - they will be fantastic, I'm sure of it.
