    Yes, I was thinking cordovan by default for some reason.

    Sorry, gents. Been on the road all morning and am a little fried.

    I did place a single MTO for a cordovan boot. Will post pics when they arrive.

    lol, well what he said was plausible so it did make me panic a little. When one brand starts or stops doing something the others tend to follow suit. I wouldn't be surprised if GG and Carmina stopped doing it in the near future. EG and Meermin already did. It must not make much sense to do it financially I guess.

    Any boot or shoe. 890 last for sure but, remember only standard MTO program so no last changes except those specified by Edward Green as standard lasts for that style.

    The MTO fee seems so pricey though. Damn, this dream may have to wait lol.

    Leaves, can Bonafe make something like the G&G Antibes? The baby Lllama would look great in this design.

    They can do a reverse hand sewn apron like in the toe, but it doesn't look like that (not as good IMO, the English makers does this much nicer), their normal split toe looks like this: [​IMG]

    Personally I have no plans in getting both. Right now one in that style is all I'm potentially thinking of getting.

    I'm keen on a blue boot, but not in this heavily brogued style. An austerity brogue or austerity U wing would have my full support.

    I always loved this boot by Carmina - it's on the Deia (sp?) last:

    I wanted to do the same thing a while back but I didn't get any hits for a GMTO. On the Robert last this would look amazing.
