    Glad folks are showing interest. Sorry to be out of pocket for the past couple days...The two color combinations under consideration are as follows:

    1) A close variation of Namor's boots -- Dark Oak with Walnut Country Calf Upper. Namor, correct me if I am wrong, but I think the Dainite sole on your version is a dark brown, which is why I suggested that option. If the rest of the boot is brown, I think a dark brown Dainite makes the most sense.

    2) Option 2 would be the Galway version of these Dovers - Antique Burgundy with Burnt Pine Country Calf Upper, as seen in the following photo. Seems like a stellar color combo as well.

    Similarly to Noonan, I think I would prefer the version that is similar to Namor's, but would be perfectly happy with Version 2 as well.

    Currently, 3 of us have expressed serious interest -- myself, Laufer, and sdolina. Halfway there!! :slayer:

    If you are interested in this MTO, please PM me.

    I also prefer someting close to the Dark Oak/Wallnut Country combination, simplу beause I saw a pic of the ready boot, but can't imagine a look of the Gallways in the second makeup from the Dovers pic.
    If somebody can post a picture of their "makeup of the dream" I could support.

    Saw this via Leffot - the Epsom boot. I had no idea there was anything other than Galway and Shannon and I must say I think they look great but I'd still rather go for the Shannon. Anyone got a pair or are they a new edition?

    ^^^ nice photos, $1030 for the mto is a great price, though I'm not buying shoes for a while :confused:

    I think I'm out as I have made a lot of big purchases over the last month including: Two Borrelli suits, a cashmere overcoat and scarf, a Harris Tweed jacket, a pair of EG, carmina MTO boots, Lindricks, my first AE, a custom Himel Brothers horsehide jacket, a custom made bag, some Japanese denim, 1000 mile boots, some riding boots etc. I have done a lot of spending recently. However, I may reconsider if you are missing one person for the order. :embar:

    Maybe I'll put myself on the no purchase club for November.

    I just happened to come across some good deals combined with some "must have" items that I purchased.

    I favor the standard Oak/Walnut for the MTO but I would go with the brown suede if the group wanted to move in that direction. Face it, although this is a "country" boot, I can't see anyone on here using this footwear with a shovel out in the paddock picking up after Trigger. As for the Burgundy/Rose, I may have to go that alone one day.

    Currently considering a Carmina balmoral in Navy but that will be a little down the road. Like Patek, I went deep the last few months. A custom Wilson 9 mm and a custom Ed Brown .45.

    Wife's getting cross...

    Noonan, looks like the consensus is Dark Oak Antique with Walnut Country calf upper. You would be our fourth if you are interested. PM me your email and sizing info if you'd like. Thanks all for the interest -- making good progress.

    Stay safe on the East Coast. Hopefully, much ado about nothing.

    Dark Oak and Walnut Country Calf on regular Dainite is what these boots are all about!
    Any other combination just doesn't do them the justice!

    No one likes the Galway in Burgundy Antique w/ Red Berry Suede uppers on Dainite? I think that's the sweetest combo...

    That boot is a new one from EG. I think it's an old archived model they've brought back. I'm having that done in Nightshade Calf (deep burgundy/purplish calf colour) at some point. Anyone else interested?
