I believe Skoak had developed the faux reverse stitch with EB and it's exclusive to them. At least that's what i remember @Leaves said in a post.

Any way to obtain reverse stitch NST Bluchers besides Skoaktiebolaget? They’re sold out in my size and am trying to avoid MTO fees.

I'd be open to it in calf. Do you have any images of the proposed model/leather in question?

Pic from Skoak in what I assume is standard calf.
Anybody please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I believe the "black" calf that EB offers is the standard, non-museum Weinheimer. I don't believe they have a black, museum offering. For what it's worth, I'd actually prefer non-museum calf.
As well, who's running the GMTO? I believe (again, could be mistaken) the 771 is the true/seamless wholecut, and that cost seems a notch lower than what I've seen prior...

Yup, it is seamless. And the price is provide by skoat for Gmto recently.

Colour could be changed

I might be interested in the GMTO for a seamless black cordovan. Depending on the color calf might be fine too.
8.5 on their 062 last seems to work for me, 946 felt a little in between 8 - 8.5, didn't get the chance to dial in the sizing completely.
Only thing of concern is how thick is their double sole?

Hi, thx for your interest, thickness for double sole usually 8 - 12mm.

Could change to rubber insole if needed

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
