There's no sense in debating it. I'll just say there was a willingness to adapt the existing full brogue wingtip pattern for this order with a pattern modification to the heel counter that is similar to the proposed designs. I suspect that from their perspective shell is shell but again, I'm not going to speculate since I'm not in their business.May be semantics at this point but technically the Color 4 GMTO closed on Tuesday so it wasn't one day, it was three, and for all we know they may not have known the drawings would be ready today. Even assuming they don't still need to prototype the model, going right to production on a new model in shell (and a limited color with a long waiting list at that) may not be something they're ready to do, though that's admittedly speculation on my part. To be honest, if someone was that deadset on a Color 4 Galway clone, Bonafe will make you one any day of the week.
As for the timing, I won't get into the specifics because it doesn't really matter. I will just say that my order was finalized yesterday after some subtle prodding.
