    I have another MTO in process but depending on the makeup, I could be interested.

    Bonafè actually has a decent supply of almost every Shell color. Price is about 7200 SEK ex VAT for RTW (+15% for MTO).

    Interesting. Where does they source their shell from, and what's the quality of the boots like compared to Carmina and other makers.

    Anyone up for a Cognac wing tip boot on a chiselled last? I'm after something like this.

    Tan chukka GMTO - only need 1-2 more!

    Carmina chukka model #10027
    3-eyelets
    Tan calf leather
    Rain last
    Dainite sole
    ~$385 USD (50% deposit required)

    So the boot will essentially be this...

    but with 3-eyelets as seen here (this is the actual model)...

    I fell in love with the idea of this chukka idea when seeing pictures of the tan calf leather--truly a unique color that will be worn with everything from jeans to slacks. Few more pictures of it below. We need 6 people total and so far we have 4 (+1 strong maybe), so only 1-2 more needed!

    After hearing back from Gabriel on this, sounds like it is already done and it is a pattern change, so I will need to go to MTO 2 to get all eyelets on the Nevis. From the sounds of it only the top 3 will be speed hooks, which sounds a bit different. I think most boots that I have that have speed hooks have 4-5. I asked if there was anyway he could get a picture of the new pattern, but I am leaning towards just going MTO 2, I wonder what else I can change at that point...

    I don't think there is much that can be changed on something like the Nevis. Usually MTO2 will let you add and remove medallions and such. Add/remove brogueing. Pattern changes like that.

    Probably right, I tried to get a dark oak/walnut CC one and that was a no go.

    I was torn between the 8F and 8.5E. In the end I went with the 8.5 with full sock liner. Gabriel thought the 8F would work but also noted GG tends to be tighter across the instep which gives me issues. I really think the difference between increase in width vs .5 decrease in length tends to be close to the same thing. While I have not tried om GG I know I would have second guessed myself either way, with skoaks prices I could easily recoup what I paid.

    I also put lasted shoe trees in the info box did I need to specify GG lasted trees?

    We can request a full sock liner on preorders? Or MTOs only?
