GG chukkas anyone?
What are you thinking?
Nothing crazy, i'm still trying to get either a TG73 deco black calf Arran, or MH71 vintage rioja Arran going.
I'm going for nothing by chukkas this year, and plan to get a couple of EG Shanklin MTOs going as well...
With the price increase coming in a month, we need to get this rolling!
I'd be in for the deco black arran. Do you have a mockup?
Do i have a mock-up? You jest of course good sir...
Interest check: G&G Westminster, Vintage Rioja, MH71
pardon my ignorance but dont you have this already? great makeup, even better PS
No. It just never got going as a GMTO before, and i became preoccupied with other MTOs up to now...
I'd love to get the below GMTO off the ground before the price increase as well (cross post from Carmina thread):
Carmina 905 tan chukka on rain last with Dainite sole. Need 6 people total to get a price of ~$387 USD through Skoaktiebolaget.
More pictures can be seen here: http://www.shoegazing.se/carmina-905-chukka-tan-rain-last/
Well, i hope someone gets a chukka GMTO going before the end of the month. Good luck gents...
I'd be so IN for that.
I'd have an open mind on chukkas in general - so long as it is a 2 or 3 eyelet. 5 eyelets strike me as being in a kind of no-man's land between a chukka and a tall boot. From Carmina, I'd much rather have a 2 eyelet chukka or the 7 eyelet model 973 boot than I would that 5 eyelet chukka.
That would make it a lot easier to keep those "no more shoes for the next six months" promises. But would suck immensely in every other way.
My enzo bonafe MTO is based on the Arran I love dress chukkas
I'll get in on the pre-March bum-rush with a spring/summer Carmina proposal:
Tobacco or fox suede
Dainite or tomir sole
No contrast stitching (as on model above)
Dark brown welt
