Thorpe in vintage pine?
May I ask you what type of winter? I hate to rain on shell parade I have one pair (you can see pictures here http://www.styleforum.net/g/a/472971/crockett-jones-mto-central/ ) but shell is not better than calf in a wet winter weather.
Now there's an idea.
I need to recruit a new SF member that shares my size, and is willing to sell me all the shoes he buys at a discount.
Shell does seem to be warmer than calf indeed.
Hey I didn't get that email. Did it just come in today? Either I got mine in early enough to not get it or so late that they didn't even get to mine yet. haha
My MTO Shannon boots arrived today from Sweden. Details:
tobacco suede shaft
EG Green lining....
^ how SWEET are those!! WoW
if you can pls post with a pr of woolies, or denim, hell any kind of trousers will do.
For those interested in this MTO, we will likely be basing the boot on this model
But in black shell, blind or black eyelets/hooks.
I agree. It's thicker, about 2 mm instead of 1.5 for normal calf, I also believe it has a higher density.
Such a great make up! Wear in good health.
This potential GMTO has lost some momentum since the proposer decided to go with his original colour choice of black - and the very best to him, as I'm sure it'll be stunning.
oak bark sole
lining can be discuss
will order through skoaktiebolaget
I'm minded to try to reinvigorate it, but in British Racing Green, for two reasons.
The first is the Gable's a beautiful shoe.
The second is that I happened to wear my BRG Montand IIs to the races today - their first full outing during the day time. They look so good, I MUST have more BGR G&Gs. And before the price increase, as I'm getting killed by the plummeting AUD.
Is there any interest out there?
And Leaves, can I just check the price in SEK?
Price is 7500 SEK ex VAT, ex trees. I think this would be a tough one to push as a GMTO. You might want to consider as a single MTO. Price will be 9200 SEK ex VAT, ex trees after increase. MTO surcharge will be 2000 SEK ex VAT after increase, it's 1600 SEK now. GBP is really messing with us.
On a side note, G&G was planning to discontinue "GMTO"s but instead they increased the minimum to six consecutive pairs instead of five. I'm glad they realised the value of these runs, very appreciated by clients and also makes their production more effective. I'm glad someone's listening to me.
I completely agree with you and appreciate you championing this for us!
I also may be interested if you'd consider a different last
I'm hoping they go in alphabetical order lol! (I got my pair of orders in just before the deadline!)
Separate names with a comma.
