    Darth Vader's own wholecuts. Triple-black badass. I dig it. Nice makeup. I'm not in the market for a black shoe right now, but I think this one is very sharp.

    Yes, you actually need those be allowed to pilot a Tie Fighter.

    Leaves, can Bonafe do any other types of detailing on the wholecut models?

    Like so:

    It's a modest +15% of the base model so it's very reasonable. As mentioned earlier, IMO Bonafé is probably the most bang for the buck at the moment, especially after Carmina raised their MTO surcharge to +50%.

    I may have asked before, but what is the average turnaround time for a Bonafe MTO?

    • 3 month delivery time

    As quoted from the GMTO posted above [​IMG]

    edit: Not sure if this is always the case, but I assume it'll be a good reference?

    Ah yes. I didn't read the specs because I wasn't interested in black.

    That is indeed very reasonable. If Bonafé should raise their prices or MTO fees in the future could you let us know here? I planning on ordering a fur lined boot from them for next winter but won't be reaching out to you until late July/early August for an October/November delivery if their 3 month production time holds true.

    By the way will Edward Green be raising their prices this year? And when?

    If I get a heads up of any Bonafé price adjustment, I will let you know.

    Edward Green usually increases their prices annually, around September.

    Yes, they can do this for MTO. We will use the whole cut design posted here (model 3725 ) as a base and you will have to provide a picture of how you want the punching and they will make it happen.
