    Guys, I decided to order that Polo Brown Suede boot on Soller last, I am not 100% about the fit so If they do not fit me I will send them back and then I would be very much interested in Chukka on Rain last in Polo Brown suede. I will be very flexible on soles.

    If any of you want to take a lead start collecting people for this GMTO go ahead. I know several other memebers who might be interested in fact you already may have 3 or 4 interested parties.

    @haci79 and @plato expressed interest in Polo Brown suede chukka on Rain last, 5 eyelet version.

    Many thanks to @thehaven22 for pointing this out.

    . Yeah, I am not sure about sizing either or I may have jumped on the soller boot as well. I am a 7.5 in rain and was under the impression that I should size down a half size for soller but a few people have said not to do that for a boot. They don't have a 7.5 but they do have a 7. In any event, I especially like the five eyelet chukka as opposed to three.

    Thanks to Skoak as I launched my first ever single MTO today. EG Ullswater in mahogany CC. Very excited. Now I may just have pull the trigger on a G&G before Friday.

    These look great! Can you compare sizing to Carmina sizing?

    Thanks! According to Skoab's website the 804 fits similar to Rain, but I can't comment on that, because I don't have any experiences with that last.

    I do, however, have a pair of Carmina oxfords on the Forest last in UK 8.5 and I took the same size for the Bonafès and I'd say the fit is very similar, but it's not easy to compare a boot to an oxford. When in doubt, just contact the guys from Skoab - their sizing advice was very helpful to me.

    I think they said about 25 pairs a week. Very small operation, although the premises are quite roomy.

    I was hoping you'd compare it to rain. I know boots and shoes aren't a direct comparison but good info nonetheless. Thanks!

    Whew, size 9.5 gone in the polo suede boot. I was about a day away from caving. Thank you, whoever that was.

    Ah, so my info may be a bit high. Still the point being is that they don't make that many shoes in a given year. Anyway now I remember where I heard it. I heard it from the SA from Leather Soul when purchasing one of my pair of SCs

    I can facilitate the discussion if it's fine with the guys.

    Currently proposed is a GMTO with the following specs:
    5-eyelet chukka in rain last (style no. 905)
    Polo brown suede
    Flat welt

    I suggested for some sort of rubber sole like Tomir, Victory, Dainite, double Dainite or Dainite 500. Not a deal breaker but this is my preference as it rains a lot where I'm from. Any preference?

    Currently we have the following interests
    @watchidiot
    @Tallcane
    @haci79
    @plato

    Any other joiners, @02///M3?

    If we are lucky we can get this in before the 3% price increase. Haha yeah that's about $12.
