    I'm tentatively in on that as well. Don't own a pair of monks yet so that might be a good way to get my feet wet.

    That is great to know because there aren't that many brands anymore who give you so many options for sole swaps anymore.

    Yeah it was really reasonable. I swapped out some double leather for Ridgeway using C&J and its totaling $210 (including mailing each way to the UK).

    that isn't bad price wise, but when compared to top repair places like B Nelson in NYC or even Perry Ercolino in PA, there is quite a big difference in price. They are low to mid $100s for a full resole and you can chose what type of sole you want. They can do a variety of rubber soles or even top quality leather soles from Rendenbach or even Baker.

    B Nelson quoted me a minimum of $180 and didn't have the ridgeway sole.

    Wow that seems like a lot. I thought it was about 150 with Rendenbach soles about a month ago.

    Whiskey Cavendish? What do you think? Killer loafer in my mind. Would love to see this makeup!

    Yeah it seemed like a lot to me too. I was enquiring about a few things in March and was quoted the following:

    To convert to Dainite is $180.00.
    A mid-sole is $40.00.
    The only way to lighen the color of the welt would be to replace it. To replace a 360 degree welt would be $50.00.
    A new sock liner is $30.00.

    This thread should be retitled: the Crockett & Jones Whiskey Shell MTO Thread :)

    Need to add foxing on the heel for detail aka Marlow. Whiskey Marlow Tassel except on last 325 instead of RL Marlow Tassel last 72. Food for thought!

    Wow!

    I know that it isn't cheap to add a midsole or replace a welt and those prices sound right.

    It is just the conversion to Dainite that seems expensive. I checked on their site and it is $180 to convert from Leather to Dainite, but only $150 to replace Dainite soles/heels or to resole with Rendenbach. $150 isn't bad, but that first change is what is expensive.

    Contact Perry Ercolino in PA. He gives prices based on the situation so you only pay based on how much you want done. He is a bespoke shoe maker anyway, but does extensive shoe repair as well. He should be able to do any sole that you want. I can't quote prices, but the last set of prices that I was told were less than B Nelson and had even more options.

    My apologies for the delay in updating everyone on the Whiskey Shell Harlech GMTO.

    I heard back from Lauren at C&J. They can do an order for 12 whiskey boots in a couple months. They can also do another run of 12 after the first one if we have 24 orders. This second run would simply be delivered later, but I think it could be submitted at the same time as the first order. Lauren suggested getting everyone's information (sizing, address, payment, etc.) together now, so that everything is squared away by the time the order can be placed.

    Unfortunately I'm looking for someone to take over the duties of organizing this GMTO going forward, as I think I'm going to pass on this boot (I simply have funds going to other things and will surely regret it). I hope that everyone understands.

    If you're willing to take over, just send me a PM with your email address saying so and I'll (1) reply with Lauren's email address, (2) let Lauren know she should be hearing from you, and (3) reply here stating the new official organizer for this GMTO. I think the main task is to get a list of 12 from the below list, starting at the top of the list (madridista was the first to express interest, and so on).
