    Anyone interested in a GMTO for some EG Dovers in Walnut CC (606)? Needs 6 to avoid a GMTO fee.

    How about a G&G Isham in Vintage Arran Grain on the MH71?

    We need five to avoid the MTO fee.

    I will not be a part of this GMTO but I have Isham on GG 06 last and it is very underrated shoe. I have not idea why there is no more love for Isham.

    I have to agree. Although I prefer it without the storm welt.

    I have come to the same conclusion, I should have gone without the storm welt but I like the shoe enough, the leather is beautiful. If the storm welt can be removed during the re-crafting of the shoe I will probably do that.

    It can be done. I did it on a pair of Buccleugh. Left a small mark but nothing I can't live with, and the shoes looked much better without it.

    @Skoaktiebolaget how does the EG 82 last fit in comparison to the Carmina Rain? I ask in anticipation for an EG shannon I may be interested in ordering. I usually wear a Rain 9.5, but I find that boots / Chukkas in the rain last fit a touch big.

    Do you have any interest in Woburn on GG 06 last

    or Wells on MH71

    I am really surprised that we never got Burnham GMTO going, it is one of the best shoes out there.

    I'm a sucker for the extra side design of the Isham. I'd be in if I didn't have the Thorpe and coming lighter Dover (agree on no storm welt for the shoe).
