    This does seem quite a large amount, but we would be happy to take pre-orders and them make up the difference to this figure.

    Are any of the Milton and Blake MTO shoes in yet? Would we expect ours soon?

    Seriously. It's sad because I love my Miller MTO boots and I would consider buying more from AS

    Watching this thread starting last year was really what got me really interested in buying more English shoes from across the pond and had regretted not jumping in on the Miller order at the time. Shame to see the unmet expectations on wait times from AS. I think G&G MTO and Carmina MTO have benefited from the exodus of interest in AS MTO.

    In the time since I commissioned my Milton and Blake, I have ordered 14 G&G MTO shoes (All through Nick). All arrived while I am still waiting on AS. Very sad, very sad indeed. This is a total disregard by AS to customers’ expectation, time, and loyalty. I wish the folks at AS could see and follow what was a promising thread and venture.

    As we have mentioned before, we are totally apologetic to you with the time these have taken to be made. All other mto's have been delivered in a timely fashion, it is just unfortunate that your pairs had specific manufacturing delays due to the sizes required. I have checked with the factory this morning, as they are back from their summer factory shutdown, and I am happy to report that your mto pairs are now ready and we will be sending these out later this week.

    Well, I am into my 30th pair or so, not counting what's in the pipeline with Nick (8 or 9 more). Going to see Bestetti outside Milan in a couple of weeks though!

    That's incredibly big time.

    Are any custom designs? I was considering doing a Hayes with a different leather in the U throat of the adelaide. Either suede or a textured grain leather in a similar color to the vamp's calf. It will be something in the spring, but I have only seen different lasts or colors from the stocklist in the G&G thread, not very many custom designs if at all.

    Have you guys ever received those Blue Miltons? I am just asking in case anybody has 10 F coming and if they do not fit or you have changed your mind I might be interested.

    Seems to me if we were looking for a fairly routine make up (similar to those that came before) and got 5+ locked in, with AFPoS looking to order a few more for their stocklist it would be business as usual. The only issue is when can we start and what would lead times look like?

    While I'm excited by the prospect at getting this MTO going again I don't get the impression that all is well with AS. Or maybe they're just experiencing too much success with their J.Crew venture? But their responsiveness otherwise seems muted.

    Would anyone be interested in a rerun of the miller boot? Dark cognac/pebble grain (or scotch grain) combo.

    Julian or Sarah,

    I am very much interested in organizing another MTO through you guys. I was wondering if you could tell us or post a pictures preferably pin grain colors. I know AS has at least dark brown pin grain leather but are there any others.

    Thank you in advance.
