    The G&G shoe trees are 1200 SEK ex VAT but please note that they do not make special shoe trees for boots.

    We are not sure and it depends on how the shortage situation on the market develops during the year. However, we are having close contacts with Carmina and when any supplies are available you guys are the first to know. :)
    Correct

    GMTO #5 G&G Mailman

    A GMTO (with no additional MTO surcharge) for the G&G Rothschild would be 7040 SEK ex VAT per pair and where G&G lasted shoe trees are 1200 SEK ex VAT extra.

    This price is only good until the end of February.

    Let's Get This Done Before it becomes even more expensive.

    Model : G&G Rothschild
    Last : MH71
    Soles : Ridgeway
    Welt: Storm
    Color : Chestnut Hatch Grain

    This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling's classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it's tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.

    Participants so far, for this GMTO:

    @dddrees (E)

    Expressed interest

    How much are trees when ordered without the GG shoes?

    Have you emailed Gabriel @Skoaktiebolaget for sizing recommendations?

    They used to be about 200 SEK more expensive when ordered separately, but G&G have decided to drop this policy from March 1st. I think the whole mandatory shoe trees policy kinda backfired on them. Just speculating.

    Some Bonafé MTOs.

    Bonafé 2364 on the 946 last
    [​IMG]

    Bonafé 3200MOD on the 946 last (GMTO)
    [​IMG]

    Bonafé 3540 on the 804 last (GMTO)
    [​IMG]

    Bonafé 3540MOD on the 74945 last (I think, don't have the full specs with me)
    [​IMG]


    Bonafé 3725 with a prototype reverse patina that we're not happy with so we won't offer it at the moment, needs more experimentation.

    IMO, the 890 looks like a breed between Bonafé 946 and EG 888. The 946 is still more chiseled, I think Edward Green should have gone all in with the 890 and made it even more chiseled as they will still have the 888 as a soft square last. I'm not saying I dislike the 890, on the contrary, but I think they should have gone a notch more aggressive.

    So they're going to keep the 888. This is good news.

    It's going to be about 6 months, but I'm already stoked.

    Agreed! Thank you leaves and Gabriel ! We couldn't have done it without your great ideas and around the clock work. At least you guys should have a little down time to chill out after all of that work. Then be ready to take tons of pictures when they all start coming in. That may actually require even more work. Haha.

    Then I'm sure you will have even more orders combining for people to buy shoes from other MTO efforts.
