    I'm not sure. I'm still waiting to hear back from C&J on the availability of whiskey shell.

    Gentlemen,

    Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in joining the Skye 2 in Whiskey Shell Cordovan Group MTO Purchase (we have confirmed leather and can still add anyone interested). I have been working with Lauren from Crockett and Jones to get everyone confirmed and paid. Due to the exchange rates, the price for US based people has dropped nearly $100!

    The boots, price wise, have come in at the originally estimated price of £700 (with VAT) or £562.50 (without VAT - People in US) and £30 for shipping plus if shoe trees are desired, they are an additional £60 (with VAT) or £50 (without VAT). So for US people, the shoes will be approximately, £592.50 (~$890) shipped.

    The specifications would be as follows.

    • Crockett & Jones Skye 2 Wingtip Boot
    • Last: 335
    • Upper: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
    • Sole: Double Leather Sole
    • Eyelets: 4 Exposed Brown Metal + 4 Brown Metal Hooks (Similar to the Skye 2 in Snuff Suede)
    • Welt: Storm - Possibly flat if possible
    • Edging: Antique

    In terms of sizing, the 335 last "The Skye is a generous fitting shoe in regards to the width." I was planning to go with my Barrie Last size for these boots (or a US 10D) if you are familiar with Alden sizes.

    In order to join in, just send me a PM. Thanks gentlemen and carry on!

    Thanks,
    Mike

    If there's a pre-order ever for those whiskey double monks, I'd be in.

    Ha! You can make it happen! Just organize 12 to do it and you can have them at retail. I would probably be down for a second pair. ;-)

    Would you guys be interested in a whiskey version of this shoe? Pricing would be a bit more though as it's a handgrade shoe

    I would be interested in this shoe in whiskey or brown cordovan. I do believe we should wait to hear back on the harlechs first before inquiring. There's about 25 interested parties for that boot - not sure how much whiskey cordovan the factory will have left. Brown cordovan might be better in better supply.

    Yeah, I'd be happy to organize something and to wait to do so until things for the boot pre-order are farther along the way.

    I would prefer a cap-toe, whiskey, double monk for myself, though I am a bit flexible on sole or last. Since I'm working with a Latin teacher budget, I'd prefer bench-grade to make the purchase slightly more economical.

    MDubs's pair of Lowndes has a chisel toe (as opposed to rounded) which looks good to me too. MDubs - any other details of the pair worth knowing? What last is that on? Thanks.

    Interested so far (?) :
