    That would be pretty great. I'd have to figure out my size in those somehow, though. I was thinking of purchasing double monks in July.

    Would you consider making that on the Rain last instead?

    Mike, any chance you would be willing to run the Austerity brogue in navy shell on the Alcudia last? I tried these amazing cognac cordovan captoe oxfords on the Alcudia in Carmina's Paris outpost that were allegedly an exclusive (although out of stock in my size) and I thought that last was amazing. Think it would make a fantastic fit with the austerity brogues.

    Looks like the Navy double monks are gaining critical mass! Using the Rain last sounds promising.

    I would prefer the Rain last also.

    Forest last (bal boot, possibly others) can be done in a wide fitting. I assume that's the equivalent of an E vs. D width. Wider than that, I suppose you may be out of luck.

    The forest last can actually be made in a EE or EEE width.

    Will the boot be fully lined, including the shaft?

    Sure, absolutely. Especially since our first MTO project was on the Rain last and we've now got a collection of guys who are confident of their size in that. It's a great shape, and the double monk will make up beautifully on it.


    Hmm, I'd prefer to use the Rain last for the same reason above - the fitting is going to be easier. But I like the way that you think! :)


    Yup, absolutely.

    Mike, will the basic double monks and shortwing iterations be staple items that will be ordered periodically?

    Yes they are. The Double Monks in caramel and chocolate and the shortwings in chocolate and Chestnut shell are basically restocked every three months. Other colors and materials kind of go in and out according to demand.
