    Put my order in for the Miller.

    We are at 2 with possibly three more pending.

    Here is a post I threw over to Ask Andy that has some pics to suggest what we were thinking

    Hi,

    Some folks have been working up a special order for an Alfred Sargent Exclusive Balmoral boot through A Fine Pair of Shoes.

    Here are the details

    Last 724
    Dark Cognac Shell/Walnut Pebble grain shaft
    Austere wingtip. No brogueing anywhere on the boot.

    Here is the order link
    http://www.afinepairofshoes.co.uk/c...e-miller-balmoral-boot-in-cognac-cordovan-mto

    You can read up on the order and the process. We have two orders in and three more possibly on the way. We need a total of six to start production.

    Color should be close to this G&G Wigmore in a style reminiscent of the EG Shannon V

    The price point is great for a shell boot. If you haven't seen the AS Exclusive line, they do a nice job.

    4 months so October at the latest. Perfect bal boot weather. Our timing couldn't have been better

    Can I take the credit for planting the pebble idea? :)

    Will get my order in tomorrow after my crazy morning rush.

    its yers. I love that our boot wasnt an exact copy of another boot already in existence. Itll be a totally unique boot and I can only imagine how great it'll look. Its like waiting for baby! (never had a baby)

    Personally I think it brings a nice combination of the pebble inspiration of your G&G Wigmore and the more recent wingtip patterns of AS' balmoral boot.

    Also, regarding the 'shaft' term:

    I think it is also called 'quarter' in other descriptions
