EG Shannon, 82 last. I don't think I have ever been quite so besotted with a pair of RTW (or, really, MTO) shoes as I am with these. Sorry for the half-assed shine. What can I say; I'm no sysdoc. Any shoe geek who does not have a pair of these (ahem, ap, jc, rh) is a disgrace to shoe geekdom.

I think nine is standard for a boot like that. I opted for eyelets all the way up rather than the hook speed lacers. The eyelets on my Carmina boots don't really bother me, so I figure these won't either.

I think for this style, there is EG Shannon, or bespoke, and that's it. Does anyone else make this RTW or MTO? I remember some Austrian maker does, but you have to go there.

as essential or classic as these might seem, very few balmoral boots are made today in rtw. I don't see a single men's pair in the 07 C&J catalog (even though there is one women's). I don't remember finding any on the entire pediwear site either. is that strange?

Manton, Nice Boots!

Here is the Lobb Brooklands. I love the 8000 last.

Andrew,
Did you go with eyelets all the way up, on your Shannons, like Manton. Or with the hook speed lacers? Here's a picture of the Shannon in that configuration(from Tom at Leather Soul)
