    As you guys may know, Inca is also an option. Although I've never seen the last in real life, it appears to be almond shaped on the pictures I've seen. Would that be an option, or do you guys still want to go with Rain?

    They look great! :) Do you possibly have a top-down view picture of them? Want to see how the toe area looks like.

    I'm not a huge fan of the proportions of the inca compared to the rain from what I've seen online, also there's quite a few pairs of inca lasted dark brown chelseas up on the B&S atm.

    I've handled forest rain and Simpson. Rain would be my choice.

    Now for sizing bkotsko did you size the same for the Chelsea as for a shoe or did you have to go down? That's where my struggle lies. That's a beautiful boot you have sir!

    I size the same in Forest and Rain for boot and shoe.
    I haven't tried a shoe in Inca, but all I wear the same size.

    Rain or Inca should be best fitting of me.

    Start a new MTO!

    Rather than snuff, I'd want tobacco suede. Has a copper hue compared to snuff.

    I like Ryden's makeup. Makes sense to me. Hope they do single Dainite sole since it's a casual piece. Not typically a fan of Chelsea's but that grey suede looks nice.

    Would anyone be interested in a rerun of the MTO for the austerity brogue in tobacco? Steve just sold out and it looked phenomenal.

    I'm thinking another austerity brogue makeup could be navy museum calf, beveled waist, JR soles. Thoughts?

    If you haven't noticed, we're already doing another chelsea MTO in dark brown suede.

    Guys, how many participants do we have now?

    In case you don't know, Carmina already ran out of stock for the "copper-like" tobacco suede as the tannery had already went bankrupt. The new tobacco suede doesn't look good imho

    Check out skoak thread for yourself

    I've wanted a cigar NST on Barrie last with commando soles and antique edging. Alden will never do it and neither will the stockists order the makeup.

    So why not make the MTO ourselves?

    Thoughts:

    new style NST boot with hand stitched apron
    Cognac shell or something close to Alden cigar
    single Dainite sole
    All eyelets, no pull tab
    Medium antique edge
    Last: Soller or Rain/Forest

    I am highly considering it. Have we decided on details? I will participate if we do rain last.

    If you are referring to the 'tanker boots' on the left, they are indeed the same model from before. It's not a new model.
    Our navy shell tanker MTO in the past was done with Soller last and the green (or loden) shell tanker above is the same model done with Robert last.

    The NST model on the right is the new model with the hand sewn aprons which Carmina is still developing at the moment. They said they are going with Soller last.
    I am definitely either stocking these beauties or going to run few MTOs with it haha

    Sorry to ruin the fun but rydenfan is correct. They are not taking any shell orders at the moment due to lack of supplies :(

    Here is the Carmina's new tobacco suede colors!

    close up (tobacco on the left, snuff on the right)

    beveled waist is not an option for carmina at the moment and Carmina will only use JR soles for their Shell shoes/boots and will not make exception for this last time I've checked :)

    So lets get back to this Chelsea MTO we have going on for now! :))

    #1. Grey Suede Chelsea

    - Soller Last (Wide fit)
    - Grey Suede with navy elastic on the side
    - Natural Stormwelt with Natural Dainite Sole

    So far I have @rydenfan @Michael Haines and 2 other SF members - 4 confirmed :)
    @aldenwear might be interested as well? so 4 or 5 interests at this time! Just need one of two more participants!

    #2. Dark Brown (Chocolate Suede) Chelsea

    - Chocolate Suede
    - Dainite Sole
    - Last: Rain?? Forest?? Undecided at the moment

    I think @Baked Potato @MGD83 @justinkapur @PartagasIV @joiji @monkeymajik you six gents showed interest.
    I saw that Rain may have the favor here?? If we can agree on the Last, this MTO should also be good to go!

    Last but not least, if you want to jump in this pre-order for the Simpson Last adelaide below in burnished brown calf, do let me know!

    Cheers!!
