    Heartbroken that the Navy Shell Cottesmore is a no-go. On a brighter note, I got confirmation from Pernilla at C&J that they would do another Lindrick GMTO run. This is what I proposed:

    Style: Lindrick
    Last: 325
    Upper: Dark Brown Shell Cordovan

    Width: UK E (US D)
    Welt: Storm
    Edging: Antique
    Sole: Dainite Sole in Dark Brown with a thin leather mid-sole
    Eyelets:
    Dark Brown Metal Eyelets or 4 Eyelets/4 Speedhooks (majority decides)

    I was told that the price would be approximately £700 (£583 excluding VAT, ~$828 USD) per pair + shipping charges (£30 US Shipping). A more accurate price would be provided once we get closer to finalizing. I know this would be a steady process, better late than never. Let me know if you want to get your hands on a legendary discontinued boot. Get those feet on fleek

    Photo taken from NAMOR's album (I think)

    Making progress, updated Lindrick GMTO list (need 12):
    1. BurntPockets - 8 Eyelets
    2. gokingsgo - Majority
    3. stevefok - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks
    4. pfeufferam - 8 Eyelets
    5. wilber_force (reddit GWY) - 8 Eyelets
    6. HerrMunich - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks
    7. mattnashbrowns - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks
    8. evereds - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks
    9. DavidLane - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks
    10. Attacca - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks
    11. stevel91 (reddit GYW) - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks
    12. General_Burnside (reddit GYW) - 4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks

    Maybe:
    • Blutarsky86 (reddit GYW)
    • Jalhur (reddit GYW)
    • Gem-bean (4 Eyelets 4 Speed Hooks)

    Reddit Post

    We reached our 12. Going to finalize and close this by Saturday 3/26/2016. Let me know if anyone wants to be waitlisted.

    Dundee GMTO Update 03/08 (pt.2):

    1. hoit1981 - Prefers medallion & double leather
    2. @kczsilence - Prefers no medallion & no preference
    3. @DavidLane - Prefers no medallion & double leather
    4. scuppasteve - Fine with or without medallion & Dainite
    5. kczsilence's friend - OUT
    6. schmallo15 - Prefers medallion & double leather
    7. zippyh - Prefers medallion & Dainite
    8. kwhitelaw - Fine with or without medallion & ?
    9. StiefelNazi - Fine with or without medallion & Dainite
    10. @100 yrs - Prefers no medallion & Dainite
    11. @mogili222 - Prefers no medallion & Dainite
    12. monkeydoodle - Prefers Medallion & Dainite
    13. HerrMunich - Prefers medallion & double leather
    14. @Wesley Crusher - Prefers no medallion & double leather

    I count 8 of us who either prefer medallion, or who are ok with or without it.

    So, how determined are the chaps who "prefer no medallion"? I mean, if we went with Dainite sole and medallion would you still want to take part, or is the medallion a complete deal breaker and you wouldn't want the boot with medallion at all?

    Is there much difference between the Lindrick make up and the Stock Cordovan Skye 2? Exposed eyelets and heel? Now that the Dundee is done anyone interested in a Coniston GMTO? Shell? Zug (if available)?

    If we are completely done if we take medallion and dainite, then so be it, Let's get this thing on the road already!

    What's the thin leather midsole that BurntPockets is proposing on the lindrick do?

    I vote for both medallion and double leather. That will be a badass boot. Those who want a rubber sole can just get a topy...

    (and yeah...i'm not in on this since i pretty much have this identical boot...but medallion and double leather is definitely the way to go).

    Strongly prefer medallion, but it's not a deal breaker for me.
    Slightly prefer Dainite but honestly doesn't matter that much.

    Whatever it takes to get this done. I'm already getting another boot with dainite so @hoit1981 original proposal of double leather would be my preferred but let's get this show on the road. The longer this takes, the longer we won't have this in our collections

    Ok, so can we all agree that the Dundee will have the medallion and be on Dainite?

    If so can you all PM me your names & email addresses. I will keep your details private. I will give you Lauren's contact info so that you can then contact her directly. She asked that I provide her with a full list of names first so that she can be sure to add the correct people to the correct GMTO (there seem to be a few running at the moment).

    Cheers guys!

    I was actually thinking Navy Shell Northcote:

    270 flat welt
    Medium Brown Edge
    Leather Midsole
    Brown Dainite
    Contrast Welt Stitching

    I am really interested in the Lindrick. I am fine with Dark brown shell but if whiskey shell is an option, I think this GMTO should grown much faster.

    I'd be all over a navy shell Northcote if I didn't already have navy shell Tricker's Roys.

    Looks like the Whiskey Harlech GMTO still need 2 more participants, a shame that I have too many cap toes

    @BurntPockets , since you already got ahold of Pernilla, can you check with CJ to see if they have enough whiskey shell?

    Not a problem, just sent over an email inquiring about the availability of Whiskey and other shell, will keep you updated.

    Think we have a tentative 3 so far for the Brown Lindrick. Seems like we may have a few others that may be interested in a Whiskey Lindrick on Reddit. My preference would be the Brown, but could warm up to the idea of Whiskey.
