    Might be one of the best GMTOs of 2014. Or maybe that was the Zug Galways. We should ask @LA Guy to launch a contest/poll.

    Great idea, I'll give it some thought.

    That brandy willow leather is absolutely amazing. Very very nice. I also like ROgerP's Dover in another brandy leather.

    I'm listening - can't see why we can't make this happen.

    Haha I am just hoping I last a few months

    And yeah that green or maybe green shark is very tempting.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned getting a seamless wholecut yet that would definitely be one of my top choices too

    @Leaves

    Can you tell me what does this Art. 3403 mod. means? In my email exchanges with Gabriel and Alexander this 3403 mod means that 946 last was modified to tighten the instep. However you said in on of the SF that 946 last was never modified. The only last that was modified to give it more room in toes area and instep was 363 last?
    This was my personal MTO for burgundy chukka on 946 last I went with my Rain size but it turned out to be very tight in instep to the point that I cannot wear it.

    I am looking for a little bit clarifications regarding a Bonafe 946 last.
    Is there a modified version of it ?
    If yes, what was changed? Instep, toe area etc.

    I am trying to determine what course of action should for the next order? It looks like I should go with G width on 946 last rather than going a half size up.
    However I would really like to know if there are two different versions of 946 last, one original Bonafe last and one for Skoaktiebolaget 946 mod last?

    I also have a pair of Bonafe boots on 804 last and the box says just art. 3930

    Here is the picture of my burgundy chukka box.

    By the way I will soon have Bonafe Burgundy chukka on daininte soles for sale, last 946 and size 10UK.

    Leaves, can you forward a pic of almond CC cardiff when possible. I wasn't able to locate one online.

    Do you still have box of these shoes? What does it say on the box? It should start with Art. and then some numbers?

    As tempting as the Bonafe MTO offer might be, I'm thinking I might just go with an EG MTO instead.
