    Been a while, gentlemen.

    I noticed a Dundee order with a picture of what I'm assuming was a recent delivery with antique edges. I am potentially interested in this but wondering if the current list would be okay with the new 378 last instead of 335? The toe is the same and the sizing is consistent but has a closer fitting heel with support. I previously confirmed with Pernilla tit is possible to do a Skye on 378 and would imagine the same goes for the Dundee.

    Ill post some recently worn shots of the lindricks and galways a contributions :)

    I’m with you I’d probably sell my natty AE Leeds if I grabbed these. Those look great.

    Whiskey shell Grasmere on double leather with antique edge. Could go either way with eyelets.

    I like the eyelets but wouldn’t hold me back either way.

    I think with Crockett & Jones, their “antique” mirrors the leather color. For example, I have five different GMTO boots/shoes from them, two in dark brown and three In whiskey shell, all were ordered with antique edge/welt. The edge/welt of the whiskey pairs is definitely lighter in color than that of the dark brown pairs. But I agree, the later the edge and welts on the whiskey Grassmere, the better.

    Either way, I would want the welt that appears in the photo previously posted a page or two back, and then a double leather sole with a similarly light colored edge.

    I would potentially be fine with that since I have a rather narrow heel but will defer to other folks on the list ( @nishant, @Perfectcircles , @up1911fan ). Here's a link too some C&J shoes on 378: https://www.crockettandjones.com/collections/?last=378

    No worries. I would just want to make sure we got the right color, regardless of how it has to be described to them when requested.
