Why can't they make a Bamford?. I was actually going to change my order to the Bamford; you wizard!
this. our SF vendors are awesome.
Well, that's the brilliant bit. They won't tell you, perhaps because they're E G after all.....they just say technical difficulties. This is after all, a model they've made for years...so what went wrong all of a sudden. I was pretty gobsmacked as I can't think of one good reason. If they tell you, let us know.
Nick is the absolute best at MTO.
I am looking forward to dealing with Leaves in the future as well.
I’ve recently worked directly with Riccardo Bestteti and he is a delight. He is very thorough and accommodating.
The Bamford MTO is monopolized by a certain US vendor by contract, my left foot!
That explains why they couldn't make that particular model. I had a similar experience with them albeit not the Bamford to which they replied that that was a Leffot exclusive design.
Reminds me of a navy double monk story
'Technical difficulties'...hehe....I knew something stank there. This leffot guy makes life difficult even when Im not dealing with him.
What 'Technical difficulties?' You have leather, thread, glue, plastic pre-manufactured last, BOOM! you have a BAMFORD (16 weeks later, that is)
Wait, wasn't the Bamford an EG for RLPL model? Why would it be exclusive to Leffot? Or am I thinking about a totally different model...?
I wanted to ask them 'did you forget how to make it?' But I was stunned by their ineptitude (telling me this six weeks or so after taking my deposit), so I just asked for a refund.
Having said that, I think anyone who buys EG from SKAB will have a good experience. Those guys are 100% reliable.
Who will be the first to get this back from an EG thread to a G&G!?
Is Nick gonna release a MTO shoe this month?
