Off the top of my head and in a similar price range you could customize the 80186 from Carmina or go Enzo Bonafe (GMTO is only 4 participants there). For some reason I thought Viberg used to have a stock shell Chelsea, but didn't see it just now
Yeah, not great options for what I'm trying to accomplish... I'll be patient and see what comes of it.

I understand. Just as an FYI, both of those brands offer stormwelt and chunkier lasts

@dfgiop Let’s start contacting the people in this list and get the ball rolling!

Let’s get Basil involved to send a formal email to the people interested, and maybe we can start calling to make our deposits! 😎

Awesome, would love to see this one get over the line. Might actually be leaving the house a couple of days a week by the time these would come in...

Sorry guys, will have to sit out for this one, had to pay $400 duty for the last round of GMTO which we did through Basil's store, it was a pretty big hit. The shoes were amazing, but have to think twice now before committing any future ones.

Assuming you aren't in the US? That is a really high duty.

That’s insane! I paid about $120 (USD) for my Galway GMTO and some Russian grain Radnor boots. Australia really goes over kill with the import duties🤦🏻‍♂️

Whoa - duty seems like it’s a thing now? I was in a duty free location for the Galway drop, but I’ll probably get the Lindrick’s delivered in the States: anyone got a ballpark figure on what the additional duty might look like on a single ~$1k boot order?

After receiving the last run of Galway's I started up a conversation with Basil about the possibility of a shell Chelsea GMTO, and after some initial hesitancy on their part they finally gave me the thumbs up this morning. I do not have the exact specs completely locked in so I want to have a conversation here before locking them in and adding the makeup to the doc. Here is where we are at:

Model - Chelsea 5
Last - 335
Width - E
Color - Color 8 or Dark Brown - there may be an extended wait for dark brown
Welt - Storm
Sole - Ridgeway
Edge Finish - Antique
Pull Tab - Single or Double
Cost - £895, £745.85 ex VAT

Let me know what people are thinking and if you would be interested. Thanks.
Sounds great! I remember we talked about this a few months back so it's nice to have some more details.
It looks good to me except for the Ridgeway sole (instead of Dainite) as I fear it might be too chunky and visible from the side.

Is it possible to have a choice or must all have the exact same sole?

Also, the signup sheet has the colour as brown but here there's a choice of colour 8 (my preference) or brown. Is there a choice or all must be the same?

How did that work? I thought that the duty would have been 10% of the price + shipping cost?

Unfortunately, if it came via courier, the courier company also adds a processing charge on top of the other cost.

The shipping company charges a fee, then the Australia border charges a processing fee, then adds the duty and tax on top of it.
