    that Dundee boot looks great in that grained leather. Is that a stock offering?

    ^ Not stock unfortunately. Would look great in brown cordovan ;-)

    Yes I guess it would be made with whatever last the Dundee normally is made with - C&J aren't open to changing stuff like that.

    335 is the normal last for this boot. I haven't owned this last so maybe someone could expand. I am told by C&J factory it run just slightly larger in width toe box than 325. It's a Country Boot last that goes for many applications is what my take is... Others on 335?

    BTW thanks to all who choose to post their experiences with the C & J lasts. I love the line personally...

    Isn't the Islay on the 335? What about the Skye & Lindrick?

    Lindrick is on 325 - guessing Skye is same.

    Looked on the website. Seems Skye's, Cardigans and a few others are indeed 335.

    Another update.

    So far 8 of the first 12 people on the list have responded to my PM, so calling the following four (who I just PM'd again):

    @Baldrick
    @chipshot
    @nachomann
    @kathmandont

    Coming Tuesday, June 9, it's been two weeks since my original PM, so if I don't hear back from them by then, I will move down the list. (Unless the general consensus on the forum is that two weeks is not enough time, then I'll give them a few more days.)

    Regarding the specs, the boot will be made on last 341, have double leather soles and all blind eyelets, since that's what most people have preferred. Most people who have responded so far are quite neutral on the welt. Two express a preference for storm welt, one for flat welt, so still a chance to influence this.

    Right now, the full list looks like this. Bold names = confirmed.

    Also, two people have opted out of the first run and are placed on place 13 and 14 (i.e. place 1 and 2 for the second run) to give them a new chance for the second run. If any of the four who haven't responded yet opts out, the next offer goes to @KPAO182 (who I know will be in).

    Hi everyone,

    I admit that I haven't read all of this thread, so please excuse an obvious question: do C&J offer "small" changes to a pattern (such as lowered height, addition of a pull tab, or a curved top of a boot rim) as part of a "normal" single MTO? Or would this involve paying for a new pattern to be made (and a price upwards of 1000gbp for a shell cordovan boot)?

    Thanks!

    C&J is very restrictive. No changes no matter how small are allowed.

    With so much of wait i thought to ask C&J store in Burlington Arcade to quote me price for single MTO of Whiskey Cordovan.
    I have bought most of my C&J shoes from here except for Skye2 (dark brown) which i got at full retail from NYC store.
    Looks like pricing for single MTO in Whiskey cordovan is very steep:
    1. Sky2: £900 - excluding vat £750 plus £50 for skin fee.
    2. Harlech: £875 - excluding vat £729.17 plus £50 for skin fee
    3. Cheviot: £825 - excluding vat £687.50 plus £50 for skin fee.

    the lead time is 6-8 weeks for making any of these shoes.

    Hi everybody, another update.

    I wish I could tell you that we have a full dozen confirmed, but this is not the case. As I write this, 10 people have confirmed they are still in, and I have moved pretty far down the list. I realize I should have contacted everybody on the list from the start to save time. Lesson learned.

    Since some people have opted out completely, some have opted out of the first run, and some haven't responded to PMs, right now the list for this run looks like this. Confirmed in bold. (Updated June 24.)

    On the list above, place number 17 (@S K M ). But I'll actually PM everybody and see how many are still interested. If we get 18-20 names, then maybe C&J will be able to include everybody, if we're lucky. And if everybody wants the same makeup, that is.

    Could you please email me at [email protected] ASAP. Because of well publicized cases like this: http://www.seattletimes.com/busines...schemes-says-kickstarter-funds-spent-on-rent/ as well as cases on the forum, regrettably, we are going to have to do a little more oversight of GMTOs occurring on the forum. Unless the organizer is doing this for profit, in which case it is an affiliate activity, there is absolutely no cost to any member involved in the GMTO. However, we will need to verify the details with the vendor and the organizer.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
