    I just barely stumbled across this thread.

    What do I need to do to get my order in?


    It's basically this boot, but in Whiskey cordovan, right?

    Do we have enough participants? I like the makeup. whiskey boot on a decent last . I would personally make it on 325 without speed hooks .. Everybody has a take.. . I like the purple lining btw not too anal about lining colours, go RED. What the hell, 1k boots.. What u want them to look like run of the mill? As for the numbering of makeups.. Nice but not a deal breaker by any means.. They will be proper boots beat to hell after many years so, whatever with the lining .. Do this boot!! $850 or so.. Is this correct?

    ^ I like your train of thought sir! Yes we're looking at those numbers. You should get in touch with Lauren :)

    4 or 5 confirmed at the moment and waiting to hear back from C&J. I would have thought that Monday would be fine - at least send Lauren a quick email stating you're interest?

    Looking at the pictures the 341 last toe looks square like.. Weird, I have C&J Ashdown on this last ... Rounded toe, slightly narrower than say 325 but not as much as the 240 so that makes em fly... This last is more curved than the 240.... I know, too much explanation ... old competitive runner here who understands lasts.... Straight vs curved .. =. big deal in FIT. Nobody ever addresses this here.. Y? 325 and 240 are straight lasted ... As most C&J, but the 341 is curved lasted. Nice... Okay lost everyone here ..later

    ^ Yeah me too. She said she would start processing orders on Monday. I guess C&J will decide how long to keep the MTO open for.

    I'm correct in thinking that this is the final makeup:

    Harlech (341 last)
    Whiskey cordovan
    Eyelets & speedhooks
    Storm welt
    Double leather
    Light / antique edge trim
    Unique numbering on the interior (e.g. 1/12 - 12/12)
    Standard leather lining

    Yes if anybody has any objection let him speak or be forever silent. I received an email from Lauren too I asked about numbering too. I will fax my info tomorrow.

    the standard belt range doesn't include a whiskey cordovan version .but they do m.t.o 's on the belts as well.so you could all get a matching whiskey cordovan belt as well.just a thought

    I have spoken with Lauren and she's finding out if individually numbering each boot is possible. We'll know on Monday. I hope no one minds, but I took the opportunity to request number 1 :)
