Not married to the sole, nor eyelets - I’m fully down with a collaborative process and group consensus lol

I also favor double leather for the dressier Lindrick in shell. If we go with Dainite, I prefer Ridgeway over their Studded sole, but will go along with what the majority decides, as well…With the Lindrick and shell I would prefer double leather. But I would also accept Dainite if that is the majority vote.
So far, there are four people who have registered interest in forming a GMTO for this proposed make-up:Lindrick* in Navy Shell Cordovan

I was about to drop some cash on the AE Shell Trunk Show today, but all this discussion about a weak pound and completing C&J shell (and a very, very sweet Baker’s Russian Grain Islay) GMTOs has me thinking about what unique shell makeups could take advantage of both opportunities at once, and it came to me: a Lindrick boot in Navy Shell Cordovan.
To my knowledge, such a boot has never before been produced. But we’re all familiar with the sleek, fully-brogued wingtip boot that we’ve seen done in Dark Brown and Whiskey shell before - but this would be in Navy Cordovan.
However, I’m not sure if this shell makeup only appeals to my beautiful mind, so I thought I’d see if anyone else was interested in a group order before I go the single MTO route. Please let me know if you’re interested, and we’ll work something out with Jermyn Street…

I received shipping notification from C&J and DHL on Monday.GMTO Galway II in Brown Shell
Ok, I've registered with Alex at C&J and heard back from her via email. She is waiting on all 6 participants to check in before she collects $$. Please contact Alex with your details so we can get this into production.
In on this. Mostly a lurker but I am more active on SDP discord and reddit. Would prefer Ridgeway and metal hooks but okay on this current makeup.So far, there are four people who have registered interest in forming a GMTO for this proposed make-up:
If everyone stays on, that means only two more are needed to send this beautiful boot into production without MTO fees, which works out to a better price than a pair of stock shell Alden’s…
If anyone else is interested, please just let me know - thanks!
Hello all. My first time here, so excuse the potentially dumb questions.I received word from Alex, we need 10 participants and the cost would be £925 (£770.80 ex-Vat), equivalent to USD 919.30.
This is for the Islay in Baker's Russian Calf, same specifications as the last production.
Leather: Baker's Russian Calf
Sole: Dainite or Ridgeway
Eyelets: Antiqued speedhooks/eyeslets
@joman8390 @nycs10011 @clee1982 @c0ugrhuntr @YouyouFr + ANYONE ELSE INTERESTED.Re: C&J brown shell cordovan PTB on 325 last (identical to RL Marlow), the current signup sheet shows the price to be £670 (£558.33 ex VAT) at retail. I don't know if that is the current price but will try to find out sometime next week. The value of the pound has dropped significantly. And with the savings on VAT, the price should be the lowest it has been in years.
