I might be in. Just need clarification on colors and how they would be different from Namor's boots.
Would anyone consider a navy suede upper or am I just crazy?
Sorry, you are!
Would not consider a navy suede upper
Fair enough. So, what is the color consensus?
I favor the Dark Oak/Walnut like Namor's. I am not sure about brown Dainite. The standard black looks good to me.
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!!
If you are interested in this MTO, please PM me.
Looks awesome and great price...althought I'm more in the market for a pair of Shannons...
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?
google search gives some nice results:
^^^ nice photos, $1030 for the mto is a great price, though I'm not buying shoes for a while
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.
Wow Patek you are taking one for the team. We appreciate that. How about pictures of your haul.
I did not realize that I had made all of those purchases till I started to list them.... I scared myself.
