    Looks like we are gaining momentum on Whiskey Harlech, @Papa Doble , I think its high time to publish the list of participants and boot details some pics in the same post will be nice to entice some fencers.

    Wow Harlech 3.0, who would have thought when we started this project while ago as a dark brown cordovan Harlech with slight modifications.

    Good luck you guys.

    That's amazing how many are signing up for round 3. It just speaks for what an amazing makeup this is. I had forgotten round 1 had actually started with hoit proposing the dark brown shell and somehow whiskey was mentioned and that's all history now.

    Like madridista said, I've been updating the list of interested members in my original post. Once Lauren gets back to me on the availability of whiskey, I'll make a new post.

    Aiiiiiiiii the whiskey Harlech is getting made!

    Right after I just bought a pair of Conistons in tan grain.


    What a disaster. I will take solace in the fact that the Harlech in whiskey is a 100% dandy boot, and I already have my fair share of dandy footwear.

    I hope there's enough shell available for all you lucky guys! What a boot.

    Haha yeah I remember this very clearly. Was originally thinking about getting a dark brown with Dainite right? I emailed Lauren who mentioned whiskey shell and the rest is history :)

    Would be awesome to see whiskey MK3!

    I think me advertising that we needed more for the Whiskey Skyes over on reddit backfired. Seems everyone is signing up for the Harlechs instead. :p Damnit! Hope you guys enjoy your Harlechs though. :)

    Ok so who would be in for dark brown pebble grain dainite Pembrokes (325 last)? Granjamo suggested this makeup a few months ago and I think it would be excellent.

    We will not be deviating from the above specs.

    Bombproof stuff. Brown pebble is about as durable as it gets, and so is the dainite sole. Would be hard wearing in the sun, rain, snow or sleet. Unlike the cordovan Marlow (the Pembroke's horse leather cousin), these shoes wouldn't "bloom" in the rain.

    Plus that pebble grain just looks awesome


    In so far:

    It's nice to see that the list for the Whiskey Harlech is full. I would have loved to join in for this go, but alas, wants over needs right now and that Snowdon will be a life saver. If there is a whiskey 4.0, I just might have to pull the trigger [​IMG]

    Justin, I think that C&J dark brown grain before finishing is the same color as tan grain, if not identical very similar, so I suggest too a DIY recolouring from the original tan grain.

    Pembroke tan is quite light, borderline orange in enough light (vs RL Marlow above). The tan pebble grain gets lighter over time. My pair of C&J Grasmere shoes are ~4ish years old and they are lighter than they were at the time of purchase.



    Suggestions on brand of polish/cream to try this with?

    I may attempt this. I have an Alden NST in tan that turned into Alden's walnut color with one coat of burgundy cream. Not a perfect color transition, but the shoe is now much more interesting and has more character. @alexSF's image above is quite telling. Even so, if enough people were interested in the GMTO I would still go through with it to get C&J's coloring correct.
