    Emailed Skoaktiebolaget but likely won't hear back until Carmina has returned from holidays. Hopefully they'll have good news.

    Looks like the 10051 without medallion is the winner! Thank you guys for keeping up with this. I can't say I'm not pleased, as it was my top choice.

    Here are the final details. Speak now or forever hold your peace.:

    The only thing I'm iffy on is the purple lining. I would something neutral like a brown, natural, or even orange, but I am definitely willing to sway on that part, as it is truly inconsequential. I will contact Skoak in the next couple days once everyone is on board.

    I don't like the purple lining in the slightest.

    That said, it's just lining and probably won't make me quit on this.

    ^Not a noob question. I just messaged Skoak to ask what is used on models like this, which is what I think we want:

    Thats' Ante Marron. It's a dark brown suede. That sole edge is most likely just a standard dark brown. That's what I would recommend. I'd also recommend using whatever lining Carmina would chose, probably a neutral one.

    Leaves has spoken, and I concur. Here is what I propose for the final makeup:

    • Model 10051, Oxford Semi brogue Without Medallion, Rain last
    • Ante Marron Suede
    • Tomir Sole
    • Dark Brown Sole Edge and Neutral Lining

    Have you guys nailed down that build with purple liner as the final or still working on details?

    I think we're going with neutral liner as that's what the representative from Skoak recommended.

    Sad to see you go!

    For everyone else, we have more than enough to keep the GMTO going. They should post it on their website any time now. I will keep you updated via this thread. Thanks everyone again for participating.

    I, too, am going to drop out of this GMTO. Really set on the Adelaide...bummed it didn't win out.
