    Oh, please excuse my ignorance. But christ the price has gone up recently! When I bought my Harlechs (dark brown) the price was something like 450 :confused:

    Edit: Just checked, it was 510 pounds back in 2012. And the exchange rate has since gone from bad to worse :brick:

    Why on earth is the price 700 for the GMTO then? Is the whiskey shell more expensive than dark brown? :cry:

    Lindrick Shell Cordovan GMTO

    Gents,

    As you maybe noticed I tried to drum up interest for the old Ralph Lauren style Lindrick in whiskey Shell cordovan. However, after some discussion with Lauren it was clear that the order couldn't be placed before early 2016 due to the infamous shell shortage, and moreover that we can't even "reserve" the hides for the production since retailers have privilege. Also, C&J will be implementing yet another price increase in August whick would affect the order. For all these reasons I found it better to keep the make up in dark brown shell, similar to the original, since this order can be placed before the price increase. Only difference from the original will be speedhooks. The details will then be:

    • Style: Lindrick
    • Last: 325
    • Colour: dark brown shell cordovan
    • Sole: Double leather
    • Welt: Storm
    • Eyelets: Metal + speedhooks
    • Price: 583.33 pounds excl. VAT, or 700 incl. VAT

      Shoe trees will be an extra 50/60 pounds (excl./incl. VAT), and shipping will be 10 pounds for the UK and 30 pounds for EU and the states – the rest of the world I believe will be around 50 pounds.

      Some more very appetizing photos can be seen here.

      So far I have the following down:
      @S K M
      @Cjwylie
      @Fleh
      @neelp3
      @aldenfan
      @NewStart
      @vispillo


      Anyone else interested please contact me asap, so we can place the order before the price increase in August. When doing firm commitments, kindly also state your private email, since I reckon it's easier to keep track of people this way (will of course email people in full descretion). I hope to receive confirmation of the final price from Lauren later today or tomorrow.

      Let's go! :slayer:

    I too have confirmed with Lauren. Come on people, we only need one more confirmation. Judging by the post above about shell cordovan shortage and price increase this is a very good opportunity to pick up some C&J whiskey shell boots at this price!!!!

    Ah I see. Yes, The USD has a decent/good exchange against the GBP right now.


    I've never bought any whiskey shell before, but have noticed that lighter shells command a higher price on the aftermarket.
