Does C&J do a by request/MTO service a la John Lobb, Eag etc where you can just have one pair made? Or do you need to put in a grand order?
They do - or, at least, they used to do so.

However, the upcharge is considerable, which is why a group MTO (GMTO) is desirable, as you don't have to pay an additional charge.

You can discuss by sending an e-mail to one of the C&J stores, or by sending a message via the contact webform on the C&J website: https://www.crockettandjones.com/contact-us/

thanks! when you say "the upcharge is considerable", what sort of costs are we talking about? I buy a few pairs of C&Js every year so will ask the guy I usually deal with as well.

IIRC, it’s ~1.5x usual cost.

Hello folks,

I am looking to organize a GMTO with the Crockett & Jones Store at 69 Jermyn Street, London. The order requires a minimum of 6 pairs to be made of the same shoe, obviously different sizes. I am looking for a total of 12 slots (for an additional discount in price), or more - However, they will only accept multiples of 6.

I have inquired about the following:
Crockett & Jones Galway (U-Tip Boots) in Dark Brown Shell Cordovan.

Please read the following specifications carefully:
Model: Galway 2 (Based Off this Model)
Upper: Dark Brown Shell Cordovan
Last: 325
Width: Standard UK E (US D)
Eyelets: 4 pairs of eyelets & 4 pairs of speed hooks
Edging: Antique Brown
Sole: Double Leather
Welt: Storm Welt

Please refer to the pictures below for a better idea of what the boots will look like. Except these will have four sets of eyelets, like the Galway 2, as opposed to the five sets of eyelets from the pictured Gianni model made for Ralph Lauren.

Cost for one pair:
£1100 (~£916.63 after excluding 16.67% VAT, as of today around $1156.70 for the US folks) plus £30 shipping.

Cost for a group of 6:
£975 (~£812.47 after excluding 16.67% VAT, as of today around $1025.45 for the US folks) plus £30 shipping.

Cost for a group of 12:
£850 (~£708.31 after excluding 16.67% VAT, as of today around $893.98 for the US Folks) plus £30 shipping.

This order will be placed through the Crockett & Jones Store at 69 Jermyn Street, London. So please feel free to contact the store via phone or email, provided below, should you have any questions about price and other details I may have left out. I look forward to filling in the spots. If you’re interested, please enter your SF username, size, and any comments/suggestions in the following link: C&J Galway 2 Dark Brown Cordovan Sign-Up Spreadsheet.

Thank you very much. It is a difficult choice I actually went on Instagram (Weltandbarrel) he posted some pictures and they look great with the Dainite sole! Do you have any visibility on the timing? Cheers

Yeah, he's a great source for examples of shoes. Dainite soles are great for all weather conditions so there is that sense of versatility as opposed to double leather that may wear down faster in the rain.

As for timeline, typically, once we place the order it takes the C&J factory about 12 weeks to manufacture our shoes. With regards to getting this GMTO kick-started, the minimum requirement is 6 pairs. I will reach out to everyone once we have 6 people on-board to see if they want to wait for another 6 people (to get a slightly lower price but risk waiting forever), or go ahead and place the order.

I was originally going to just suck it up and pay for the MTO fee for one order by myself, so I wouldn't mind placing an order with 6 pairs, but of course everyone has to be in agreement. I posted this GMTO last week and we already have 5 people on board so who knows! Maybe we'll fill in all the spots in a couple of weeks.

Just FYI guys, it takes 12 not 6, and all of the shoes have to have the exact same build.

I was given a price breakdown for 1, 6, and 12 pairs (respectively) from a C&J manager. Maybe his information is incorrect, I will double check with him. And yes, all of the shoes will have the exact same build specifications. At the end, the majority will decide as long as everyone agrees, what soles we use, etc. I personally don't mind and will be open to everyone's suggestions.

Thanks for the information anyways!

COVID may have changed such restrictions. They’re hurting, just like everyone else, and may just loosen GMTO requirements to help.
