CURRENT PLAN: Harlech (341 Last) Whiskey Cordovan Eyelets & Speedhooks Storm Welt Double Leather Sole I've been in touch with Steve Murdoch at C&J who seems to be a very affable chap. I enquired about the possibility of a brown cordovan Harlech with modifications - namely all eyelets on storm welt with commando sole. Amazingly, I was told that this was entirely possible and would take approximately 10-12 weeks to produce. Primarily, I wanted to reach out to fellow SF members who might also be interested in such a makeup. Also, if anyone had differing ideas to a similar makeup this could be a place to make their suggestions known. Steve has given me the contact email of his assistant Lauren who will be happy to take our details for an order. We would need to let her know our size in the C&J 341 last as there would be no returns. Price would be £479 ($761) + shipping for non-European orders and the full £575 for those in the UK. All in all, I'm amazed at the flexibility of C&J and their seemingly endless quest to satisfy their customers, especially during this so-called "rare shell shortage". Feel free to add to this thread or PM me with any questions. I'm going to head to C&J NY within the next few days to try on the 341 and get a sense of its similarities with the Marlow family.
