ecwy congrats man they look good. Is the isham kudu batch all ready out? Or was this some different gmto?


Could be partially out, or this could have been an MTO. I haven't received an email yet.


I have not also, no email that is why I asked & thank you for feed back.


Based on the Pearl Grey St James arrival I actually figured we might have to wait until next mid month.


That make sense


Yeah you never know for sure, but that arrival may have given us a rough idea anyway.


Hey better than nothing. Also his isham is wider width just saw that so can't be our gmto


Yeah, I couldn't remember whether the width restriction was in effect or not then, but it probably was.

I didn't get an email either so I'm guessing that his pair was a separate MTO and that ours should take a while longer based on the time for the pearl grey st James.

And by the way, did you notice that our St James II is the new version instead of the older version? When I compared my pearl grey pair to my polo suede pair, the Adelaide is quite different. I don't mind at all but didn't realize that we were getting the new version.

Need some help. Have a credit at Skoak due to EG cancelled order and am torn between St. James in Cherry, Woburn in Polo suede or black Canterbury. St. James would be a no-brainer but I do have an AS Moore in Cherry (I know it is not the same but wonder if I need two pairs in Cherry). I typically don't wear black shoes but I could see wearing the Canterbury boot. I also really like that Woburn (have it in Chestnut). Hope to order before price increase. Thanks.

You kind of answered your own question.
I really do not see need for two pairs of the same shoe in cherry. I have Rothschield and St. James II in vintage cherry. :lol:

I would go for wouburn

My pair was part of the GMTO. Maybe it contributed to the demise of the width flexibility


It probably got made first as it was an odd width with requested shoe trees. Probably means I won't be buying more GG as I don't see the value in single MTO prices unless for some special leather. Sizing is also tricky when you have to MTO for sizing.

I would sell AS Moore & get St James 2 cherry. At one point I all most picked Moore up but happy I didn't but no doubt very good shoe. After that I would go for Woburn if you like them. But regardless you will be happy with all three :D

I was going to suggests selling Moore too and getting VC St. James but they way SF marketplace is moving that may not be the possible given the OP's deadline to buy shoes.

Definitely a noticeable difference between the Moore and St James. I still have the Cherry Moores but have considered selling them to buy cherry st James a couple times.
