    Another +1 from me. Double leather is ideal for this boot. Hopefully the first round governance is almost sorted and we can get these under way.

    Double leather and move the project along... If they were last 325, double leather sole, storm welt, I'd be all over these and I bet a lot of other members would kill for that boot in Whiskey. Last 341 is nice looking but 325 will get a wider audience. You get too fancy with sole, last, welt, you move a lot of "folks" ( as O likes to refer to us ) out of the realm.

    Gents, I would like to opt out of the first 12 list for the harlech in whiskey cordovan.
    All the best on the MTO - it should be an exciting boot!

    I don't want to see the first round on the harlech fall apart. If needed I can take lead on it.

    Let me know.

    For those on the Skye II MTO; had a brief exchanged with Lauren, all I could get out of her is that they are about half way through... Not very helpful but it's something

    Sorry for the delay everyone. @TommyB will be taking over the Whiskey Shell Harlech GMTO. I have PMed him, and I imagine at least the first 12 people will be hearing from him shortly. Finally, here is what I believe is the full list of interested members in the order they expressed interest, removing those who said they were out.

    1. @madridista
    2. @Baldrick
    3. @NewYawker

    Thanks for the update, Papa Doble, and for the chance to take over the GMTO!

    There's a couple of things I will do now, such as emailing Lauren at C&J and get a rough estimate of when the Harlechs can be expected to go into production.

    I will also PM the 12 first on the list (up to @kathmandont since @sleepyinsanfran just opted out) to see if they're all still in the game, and if anyone isn't, I will move down the list.

    There's been some discussion recently about what sole should be used. The original makeup that was proposed had a Dainite sole, while others have suggested a double leather sole. Personally, I prefer double leather for the reasons others have mentioned. So unless there's a massive opinion against a double leather sole among the first 12 on the list, that's what it'll be.

    I'm also sure some will have opinions about hooks or all eyelets, and about flat welt or storm welt, but here I'm ready to go with the original makeup, i.e. all eyelets (blind) and flat welt unless there's a massive opinion for hooks or storm welts (I'm personally fine with all options) among the first 12 on the list.

    So, to repeat, new proposed makeup:

    Crockett & Jones Harlech Cap Toe Boot
    Last: 341
    Upper: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
    Sole: Double Leather
    Welt: Flat 360 degree
    Edging: antique/light brown
    Eyelets: all blind, no hooks
    Pull tab: none

    PMs will follow later today.

    As Joey Ramone would have said, "Hey Ho, Let's Go!"

    Eh, they'll get here when they get here. I'm probably not going to get much wear out of mine until at least september anyway. Too hot until then to wear a skye II.
