Does it not take 3 months?
I think Nick will be sending some pics to confirm that the extra burnishing is as desired. Assuming that works out, I guess they'll ship pretty soon. I'm hoping the shipping doesnt take much longer than the wait!
4th May i ordered mine but i am a F fitting so think these might take longer
In my experience, I have some that took up to 6 months. It really depends on their schedule and number of orders they get. Typically, I get them withing 16 weeks, unless they is a special request for something additional.
Any way you look at it, the wait is worth it and the results are always breathtaking!
Had a email from Nick and he thinks 1 pair could be ready. Fingers crossed
Congratulations for taking the plunge (I've considered that particular shoe in that very combination), and your luck is simply incredible. I'd say the chances of another 7-day turnaround for something Nick doesn't already have in stock is akin to lightening striking twice! Looking forward to the pics...
Wow! Sounds amazing!
Most definitely something that I'd love to see pictures of.
I feel the same way about making a MTO order, the thought of waiting 12 - 16 weeks for the shoes to be made is too hard on my weak heart
Thanks! Yes, I won't expect a one week turn around time ever again
I've really been amazed by some of the pics on this thread for the Rothschild in vintage chestnut. As Nick explained to me, the extra burnishing can be requested from G&G - I think this is why there are some models posted with less of a color contrast in the toe box and back quarters than others. I forwarded a few pics which I think were sent to Tony for reference. I have a feeling I'll be pleased with the results.
Will definitely post pics.
I think you are lucky. They must have had that particular shoe ready in production line in your size and they needed to just do the burnishing. It normally takes more than seven days to just cut the leather.
like Nike says; JUST DO IT!
The results are worth it. You will get something special unlike many of the pedestrian styles flaoting around.
Nick sent some pics and posted on his tumblr. Hopefully, I'll have them in hand in a few days. . .
nice one!! Rothschild is hands down one of my all-time favorite full brogues....perfect symmetry of pattern with an amazing medallion!
Very nice, you will enjoy them !
Thanks Justin and Hampton! I can't wait
