    Definitely let me know if you're in. Also, would it be worth me crossing over the reddit post over to SF for added interest?

    This was once a cool thread where we got a great MTO Wiskey Harlect Boot built .. Nothing too fancy asked from the boot maker, double leather sole, storm welt, standard last and done. Hoit honched the effort and it went smoothly. BTY did I mention they were Whiskey Shell Cordovan.

    From what I've read .. I think you we should repeat the original design in last 335 for a larger demographic, sorry, my 2 cents.

    I've emailed Lauren to see if #4 is available. Not holding my breath, but it would be awesome if they could get it.

    Count me in if Colour 4 is a viable option.

    Hey Hoit, regarding the dundee boot, what last are you thinking of?

    I think these are going 335. Nice last... Slightly larger toe box than 325. Great boot last I think!

    The original design comes in 341 last Harlech
    335 last is for Skye
    325 last is for Coniston.

    I do not think C&J allows for changes in last, that is I doubt they will make Harlech on 335 or 325 last.
    I agree things should be kept as simple as possible.

    In case anybody is organizing another run on Skye model, let me know.

    No worries, I don't think there's anyone but chipshot who would actually prefer the 335 last even though he's trying to phrase it as though it's a public demand.

    Anyhow, I'm getting tempted to switch my preferences towards the Skye in whiskey as well, but lets see how the first batch turn out. I think another tempting option would be the Lindrick done for RL: similar to the Skye but with broguing across the ankle. Very nice.

    Cheers,
    SKM
