    Thinking of doing a Promontory Point MTO, what do you guys think of this make-up?

    Burnished merlot calf, extra burnishing on toe/heel
    Split reverse natural welt
    Natural edge dressing
    Leather midsole
    Mini-lug outsole
    Independence lining and insole
    Contrast natural stitching
    Antiqued brass eyelets with 2 speedhooks
    Natural laces
    Brogue strip on captoe (ala Fifth Avenue-don't know if they would be willing to do this)

    The sale's going already. Is there someone in particular I should call seeing as emails were backed up? And how do I find who to call. Sorry for so many questions but I'm very new to this.

    Nice make up bgp. I want a more dressy look. I'm going with brown burnished calf, flat welt, dainite sole and indy lining/insole. Didn't think about the brogue strip on captoe, GREAT IDEA, I'm going to ask to see if it's possible as well.

    Mind posting in the thread if they say yes or no for the brogue strip on cap ? I always really liked the look of the eastland monroe and it would be amazing to make a promontory MTO with it.

    You are right, or rather I was wr...wr...incorrect about duties. I could have sworn that I read somewhere that US made shoes were subject to Canadian duties, but I can't find where I read that now, although I did find information that suggests that US made shoes are duty-exempt.

    I guess that the extra fee from Fedex was all just Cdn taxes and brokerage.

    I'll post what Allison (oops brain fart) says.

    Any thoughts on the casualness of the boot? I was hoping to wear it with both jeans and possibly business casual when the weather's rough outside. I'm thinking the natural welt/edge might be too casual for the latter.

    Just got off of the phone with Allison. Placed my order with the following options:

    Promontory Point
    Natural Chromexcel leather
    Brass eyelets with the top three speed hooks
    Tone on tone stitching
    Double leather sole toasted edge
    Brown regular welt
    Blue calf lining (for fun)

    The best part about it all is price. It's going to be a difficult 10 week wait.

    Here are a few pics of the Pine River that I just got in from the seconds sale along with the Dundees. You can see that the defect is some creasing behind the strap area. That's no big deal in my book. The Danite soles are a nice touch to these. I plan to wear them casually and possibly business casual at times.

    They look really nice. On my screen the bourbon appears to have olive undertones in it
