    +1. I thought I'd hate Dainite, but I find myself liking Dainite and crepe soles.

    Just a short update. Lauren at C&J emailed to say it seems likely the first round of Harlecks can go into production in July, or even sooner. She'll check with the factory next week. Not sure how long it takes from production start to delivery.

    So far six people (including myself) have declared they're still interested in the MTO, I'm waiting to hear back from six more. (At this moment, the last person to receive a PM from me is number 14 on the list, btw.)

    I wish! I know Enzo Bonafe can get #4, and would charge a similar amount for a similar makeup... I could ask Lauren and find out, but I really doubt it.

    Seems #4 is not that difficult as we thought. Appreciate if you could ask Lauren about it, let's have a little faith.[​IMG]

    I don't want to derail your plans if you're set on dark brown shell, but I'd be very interested if #4 is possible! Just too much dark brown shell at this point.

    I know it's off topic, but I visited the Skoaktiebolaget store today to ask about #4 availability, and it seems Enzo can get more. So if C&J (or Alden) can't get any more #4, then maybe this captoe boot from Enzo Bonafé (but in #4 instead of #8) might be an option? And it only takes three people for a group MTO from Enzo...

    End of off topic.

    I'm organising a GMTO with Skoak for this boot in Color 4 over on reddit if you wanted to jump in on that? Or bringing that over here is an option too.
    This is my original interest post: https://www.reddit.com/r/goodyearwelt/comments/36n6qf/enzo_bonafe_cordovan_boot_gmto_interest/

    I've added all the details that Skoak provided me so I hope that helps.
