    I know exactly what you mean. I'm not sure what he is looking into either. I just gave him the general info, because I figured that he would have read one of your post already to get that info. Well if he is interested in the Snowdon, I'm sure that he will see this back and forth between us. Hopefully he will know to reach out to you to settle things.

    I've known what you guys have been trying to do and that is why I gave the info that Aki gave me for the same thing. That is all. Just trying to help.

    We appreciate your intention. However, you are making more confusion than help. For the past couple of pages budapest clearly advised he's already on the line with the C&J Factory, and he's waiting for the info on price. No Aki/ London store is necessary.

    Sorry for the confusion, yes my previous message was in regards to Snowdon. I forgot to say that in my previous post. The specs I mean are if you are able to get a full bellows tongue.

    The factory has confirmed it can make a Snowdon with full bellows tongue for 550 pounds. VAT is deductible outside EU. A stitched mock toecap is possible but a real toecap would compromise the weatherproofing of the boot. Finally, I am told they will only do the boot in waxed oak.

    Sorry for that and at least we know that he wanted to know about the snowdon now.
    Regardless of the situation everyone now should know about how to do GMTO and Single MTO.

    Good luck with the snowdon!

    Terrific! I will try to get the word out on other threads in the next day or two. The full bellows tongue requires extra work from the factory. That is why the price is approximately 75 pounds greater than for a regular Snowdon model. I was told that an order placed now would be ready around late April - again, taking more time than is usually the case. Of course, I see no need to get these boots that early, but I do want to make sure this happens sooner rather than later so I'd like to keep things moving.

    NOTE: I am not sure that the factory is willing to make MORE than 12. That is a bit vague because I was told "we could make a line of 12 boots" with full bellows tongue. I don't know if they would refuse a larger order or (more likely) require more time to deliver them.

    12 is already extremely hard to reach, but let's do our best. Perhaps try posting the photo with the price on Marketplace so others can see ..

    @budapest12 How do we stand with the number of orders? Any chance we can collect 12 orders anytime soon?

    Gentlemen, with the weaker gbp would it be a good time for another shell harlech?
    I'm ok with brown or whiskey shell, and a leather midsole w dainite outsole -
    I'd just like to order from the C&J factory rather than the NY store (where the jermyn st store keeps redirecting me for my single boot enquiries, with prices around 20% higher in NY for some reason)

    @sleepyinsanfran - I would be in for a whiskey shell Harlech. What was the price last go around? And we need 12 right?

    @sleepyinsanfran I would be interested in Whiskey Shell Harlech as well. In fact I like my Harlech (dark brown shell) so much, I might even consider it in burgundy. I think getting 12 people will be a tall order but hopefully strong dollar will make people jump in.

    I'd be in, especially if Dainite and all blind eyelet.

    What last have the MTO Harlechs been on? 341?
