@mxgreen let me uncover the other stipulations the factory has given.
1.No handgrade models to exclusive standard, unfortunately.
2. Subject to confirmation, two leather types may be possible in one shoe.
3. Subject to confirmation again, a change in the last may be possible, for example, Armfield on 106.

Fwiw, @brotherender, you might pick up a few additional participants by posting the GMTO on https://old.reddit.com/r/goodyearwelt/. That's how I got in on @Crafty Cumbrian 's trickers gmto.
I wish him luck. It’s best to post in as many mediums as possible as three from here, three their and you’re on your way.
I’m mto’d out for the year...🥳
That said dependant on which one you went in for you may have luck as the Green Trickers are coming in next week! If twas monkey boots after Xmas (or tankers...jeez I was busy!).

Hehe. It was the Eaton boots. I have a pair of Bourtons in Caramel kudu, and they are awesome. Caramel kudu is best kudu, imo ;). Particularly well suited to tricker's country/chunky aesthetic. No doubt the Eaton will be awesome.

Any suggestions on online stores that sell AS?
Try herring shoes website (some will be underalfred sargent, some under herring own brand and some under wildsmith but all made by AS)
and bowen website

Gentlemen, the timing may be a tad off (Brexit plus Christmas) but it so happens that I've been in touch with the AS factory and I got the green light to organise a GMTO.

General conditions are as follows (identical to the last GMTO I could find, which is Moore via AFPOS):
1. Minimum number of pairs to go through: 10
2. Upfront payment of 50%, the balance once the order is ready to dispatch
3. Pricing: RRP, to be confirmed
4. and most importantly: old collections are not out of question (barring HG, sadly).

There are some other details but I promised to the factory not to disclose them unless there is some interest in the GMTO

So, if anyone's up for it, let me know. Personally, I've been eyeing Exclusive items, such as Charlton or Wilson or Moore. How about you?

PS. @dukenukem4ever @JUAN MANUEL as a proud owner of Ramsey monks I say: get'em!
But of course a pair of the exclusive Armfield’s in the 109F last in dark brown!

Maiden voyage of a pair of Pytchley in burgundy.

Last: 87
Welt: 360
Sole: Dainite

A beautiful shoe, the scalling and proportions of AS shoes are impeccable, maybe is that the mouth is quite big so the vamp is smaller. In the box says "Wholecut Blucher" that I think describes very well this shoe.

I believe that this model sometimes looks quite bulbous in other brands, but AS pattern + last make it look balanced.

I've read on this thread that AS leather is crust leather, but Is AS leather veg or chrome tanned?

Beautiful. MTO? Don't recall ever seeing AS boot on ridgeway.
Of a sorts, it's a makeup done for correspondence shoes in America I've had my eye on for a while that I picked up in a sale, got stung a bit with duty fees but very happy with them
