    That is too similar to the Thorpe GMTO going on.

    Edward Green does not allow GMTO anymore, so it would have to be individual MTO.

    Aha, good info, thanks guys. Somehow I either never knew or had forgotten about that change at EG. Thorpe does look nice but I'm looking for a darker color, and EG lasts fit me better anyway. Now pardon me while I email Skoak. If anyone wants to join me in an individual MTO, you're of course welcome.

    Go for walnut country calf. It's a true dark brown and would look killer. You could do the ridgeway sole if you want something thicker than Dainite

    Yep, walnut looks exactly right. Will have to think about the sole issue. And the last. I don't want something too sleek. Might just use whichever last is in the photograph I quoted.

    Thanks for this. I know my current Carmina in snuff suede have a brown liner and think this may be the safest option for our GMTO.

    I tried it with a darker grey which might work but I felt it would not be optimal. At that point I'd just prefer dark brown suede. However, in a pinch you could swing a couple shades darker with the snuff suede shoes. Someone can feel free to disagree with me here.

    It looks a little bit darker than usual. I really liked the burgundy color I had on my pair of Inverness which I had to sell sadly due to the poor fit. I really liked the color on these.

    It looks like we might have the makeup on lock. Purple lining and single dainite. If anyone wants to join, there will be no further changes to the makeup, but they could PM me their email by Friday night.
