    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    GMTO Specs:
    Last: 325
    Width: E
    Color: Dark Brown
    Material: Shell Cordovan
    Eyelets: Blind/Hidden
    Edges: Antique
    Welt: Storm
    Sole: JR Double Leather

    This GMTO is for the same shoe as the C&J for Ralph Lauren Marlow wingtips.

    Once everyone pays and the order goes to the factory it takes about 4 months before the shoes are completed and shipped.

    Metal toe tips can be added on an individual basis. If anyone is interested just let Lauren know before you pay and she will adjust the price for you. Please note that this will increase the delivery date by an additional 2 weeks for anyone who adds this to their order.

    There will be a price increase of £25 on March 1st. Everyone in the group needs to pay by February 28th to avoid the price increase. If even 1 individual hasn't paid by March 1st the price goes up by £25 and everyone who has already paid will need to pay the difference. The £25 increase includes VAT so for those of us outside the EU the price increase is actually £20.84.

    One of the original participants was moved to the backup list as I was unable to get in touch with them for their contact information over the last 3 days. Normally more time would be granted, but with the impending price increase we needed to move quickly and I believe everyone understands this.


    Price:
    If everyone pays before March 1st: Excluding VAT - £515 = about $645 (Including VAT - £615)
    If anyone pays after March 1st: Excluding VAT - £535.84 = about $670 (Including VAT - £640)

    Shipping to USA - £30 = about $37 (Sorry, I do not have rates for non-US destinations)

    Updates:

    • Status: We have 12 participants who have provided their contact information! I have sent the list of email addresses to Lauren and we are now in the payment stage. Please keep an eye out for the email from Lauren and be prepared to provide your size and payment information. Thanks to everyone involved in this GMTO!

    • 11/12 Signed up! Need one more! I have email addresses from about half of you. Please send me your emails so I can pass them along to Lauren once we have 12 as time will be a factor here to get in under the deadline. We must COMPLETE payment by the 28th.

    Speaking with Pernilla to see what she thinks about sizing. Any additional thoughts are welcome and appreciated, as I do not have any experience with this last.

    I am a 10D on a Brannock; however, I have a tailor's bunion on my right foot in part due to a sports injury. It is relatively mild, but may now put me at an E for my right foot. I also use low profile orthotics.

    9.5 Barrie
    9.5 2030/2045
    10D Sailor (This is a bit tight on my feet)

    If I can provide any other helpful bits of information, please let me know! Excited to get this done :)

    I emailed Pernilla on sizing for the Snowdon and am awaiting a response. Trying to see if it makes sense to size 1.5 down instead of just 1 like I have done for the Harlech, Dundee and Warlow. Dundee was too big and sold. Harlech and Warlow are a little big but can be sort of worn but not perfect. So need confirmation. I imagine the Snowdon is even larger to account for thick socks.

    I was in same boat I emailed her I go I full size down and I take 8.5uk E on ashdown derby she recommended take same size this boot is tts plus you will be wearing snowdon with thick boot socks since leather is crazy thick, so it makes no sense to size down even further. I Hope it helps my man pay and gets this party started.

    [COLOR=8B4513]brown shell MArlow Ptb[/COLOR]

    The proposed makeup is identical to the RL Marlow PTB but it will be made under the Grasmere model (on the 325 last). The specs are: Specs:
    • Grasmere (325 last)
    • Dark brown (C&J color "dark cognac") shell cordovan
    • Exposed eyelets
    • Storm welt
    • Antique welt/edge
    • Separate signups for Double leather soles and Dainite soles
    Price: £620 (less VAT is £516.67). Shipping to US is £30.00. I believe that the price indicated includes the increase to be applied on March 1. So, perhaps if we get 12 and all pay before then the price will be lower. For those who have signed the spreadsheet - It seemed to me that more people favored double leather soles so yesterday afternoon I PMed all who had signed up to see if we could get 12. I've heard from some but not all. Based on the responses that I received, even if all who have not gotten back to me vote for double leather soles (as opposed to Dainite soles) we would not reach 12. So, I have revised the spreadsheet. There are now two options - double leather soles and Dainite soles. I've moved members names to the respective option based on their previous stated preference. Those who indicated that they would go with the majority have been listed on both options, as have those who stated a preference but also indicated that they would go with the majority. If I mistakenly included or excluded a member from either option I apologize. Feel free to make the correction. As of this morning (assuming I have correctly allocated those who expressed an interest) there are 7 names listed on the option for double leather soles and 8 people listed on the option for Dainite soles. Click on BROWN SHELL MARLOW PTB above to go to the signup spreadsheet. Feel free to contact me with any questions! [​IMG]

    I have email addresses from just about everyone. I'll PM you for them. If you know anyone interested in this last spot get them in asap. As it is we've probably lost today so 4 days left to pay or face the price increase.

    I have red that everybody has to pay the price increase if there is any of 12 who has not payed in time.
    I don't know if it is legal though.

    Yes this is how it was conveyed. Pretty sure the legality of this isn't an issue they can just cancel the order. Plus it is a group order if the group hasn't fulfilled payment then the order isn't technically placed is it?

    [​IMG] Where did you read that?
    I've already payed full price, before march 1st, so it's final and it would be illegal to ask for more. The increase may apply to those who take too much time to pay though. [​IMG]

    That is what was explained several days ago on here when discussing then MTO. Pretty sure it has been repeated quite a few times.

    Weird... [​IMG]

    The worst thing is that there are 3 people on the waiting list who might have payed immediately @SirGaiwan @tianki and @supern0va and who all filled their size.

    Still waiting for four payments : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...MnwLZw_BRkxZV59z6rk5SvZhk/edit#gid=1284680499

    @HerrMunich , @kczsilence , @shunted22 and @DSky Please, be swift and think of the others.
