    So why did you get rid of the Nevis, and what makes the Thorpe so much better in your opinion?

    Thank you for your generosity @Leaves. You mentioned no exotic so I assume their crust calf, suede, and pebble grains are acceptable? Also, is this for shoes or also boots (e.g., Shannon, Epsom, Nevis)? Any restrictions for more complex work (i.e., pig-bristle toe)? I assume using the new 890 last would also be okay? I just want to be clear on the options.

    I'm ready to for a bidding war!

    If I go with the Nevis it will more than likely be in Rosewood CC.

    I'm going for both myself.

    Rustic Thorpe

    and

    Rosewood CC Nevis.

    when funds allow of course.

    I've decided we need another Ucap GMTO. Who would be interested?

    If you mean Carmina, they stopped accepting GMTO :(

    Else, let's hear it.

    Ummmmm I don't think so. Maybe you mean EG or maybe you mean Carmina is not accepting cordovan orders?

    GMTO on cordovan he means - there is a cordovan shortage. They can only accept a single MTO . For calf or suede GMTO is good to go anytime.

    Then he should probably say that. The OP said nothing about cordovan.

    Correct, he should have been more clear
