    My brother-in-law just got a pair or Harlechs and is now a big fan. I just emailed him the specs in an attempt to moisten his palette. He isn't on SF, so I would have to proxy for him.

    Not sure how likely he is to participate, being that he has a wife and 2 children under 2. I'm always soliciting him with opportunities to score coveted shoes, but he always declines.

    I'm probably interested in the Harlech. I don't know my size, I wear an 11 in the Lindrick and it's pretty snug, too snug really; I should size up to an 11.5 on those. My Alden TB/Barrie last size is an 11 as well and I don't have any other C&J to compare.

    Edited: clarity.

    Thanks - much appreciated. I have been too distracted recently and do want to forge ahead on this. I had no idea you were in. Not sure that I saw any finite indication that @laufer was in either. Are you fairly sure of that price with the VAT backed out and exchange rate? That exchange rate could get better in the coming weeks, as others have pointed out. Ok, again, thank you and let's get this rolling.

    Re: Harlech folks -- lacing up 8 blind eyelets is going to be quite the challenge if you plan to wear them on a regular basis. If we are going all-eyelets, having grommeted/"exposed" eyelets might be better for speed of lacing...

    The conversion that I posted is accurate as of today: £1 = $1.50. If you prefer, I can remove that price from the post and once we have a full run of 12, we can put in the price for whatever it is at that time and date.

    I've always been in on this run [​IMG] I hope that list doesn't fill up just yet cause I plan on using part of my tax refund on this and a pair of Brecons [​IMG]

    Lastly, I had mentioned this question a few pages back, but it may have been looked over. I'm not sure how the construction was done on the "Turner" boot in which the shearling collar was added, but I was wondering if this could be done after the fact? Perhaps B Nelson?

    I agree and am not entirely sure if all blind eyelets would be practical for me, with regards to the harlechs

    Agreed. The blind eyelets has kept me on the fence about these. If they had agatine eyelets, I'd likely be in...

    I'm not entirely opposed to metal eyelets, in particular matched light/medium brown eyelets (as opposed to a contrasting dark brown) like on @NAMOR's Vass boots below. We'd need to use thicker laces then, but that could be a good thing.

    Guys,

    No apologies needed, indeed was involved in initial conversations. Put me down as a maybe on the list. From what I can see this is going to be an uphil battle so let's see if we can get other members interested in this project and I will make a decision.
