    Handgrade. Factory supposedly has the shell. Potentially lasted shoe trees.

    Pretty sure you will be UK9 then. But depends upon last. I believe they only allow one width per run. And I think they have very limited width offerings.

    So are you in? I can do either a Skye or Lindrick. I have been told that this is a feasible option.

    Yes!!! I love leather soles. That would be what we are going with I was thinking Double Leather though.

    Seems we've got two GMTOs getting started!

    Somerville (Handgrade) Whiskey Shell Balmoral Boot

    some prelim interests (not firm commitments)

    @ThinkDerm
    @Watchman1
    @justinkapur
    @Genludd
    @mdubs
    @rydenfan

    Skye 2 (Benchgrade) Whiskey Shell Derby/Blucher Boot (I think Skye would look best in a darker brown shell with the broguing) via mdubs

    It is extremely tempting, however it would depend on final specs and price. But both the Skye and Lindrick would be fine. Only problem is I have another brogue boot by EG incoming this fall in almost similar colours, though not shell :ember:

    I also wonder if either of the two boots could be made on a more slim last like the 341? The 335 seems quite roomy and rustique to me, and I have plenty of rustique boots lol...

    I'd be interested in something Lindrick-y pending final details.

    NAMOR - :slayer: you bro. Happy Labor Day Weekend to you and your fam. You know I'm against light boots, especially bal boots, that are too light in color. C&J's whiskey is just the right shade that makes it the perfect cordovan color for bal boots.

    That boot by @Leaves is exactly what I was envisioning without the captoe broguing (and no speedhooks). Love that shade of shell. This Whiskey Cordovan Shell color is the same color and what our boot will look like - great depth of color and potential for patina.

    Getting a lighter bal boot because I already have the perfect shade of brown bal cordovan boot:

    Hey Mike, I'd definitely do a whiskey Skye or Lindrick.
    Don't really have any preference on sole material.

    @ThinkDerm , I will pass on this one. I have enough "dressier" boots at the moment and am leaning more toward work-type boots. But thanks for the invite. Good luck!

    Very nice. I'm good for shell boots, but I hope it works out.
