    B - please consider me committed for the Arran Chukka and Oakham double monks. Unfortunately, if both make it to 5 interests I can only purchase one - preference in that case would be to the oakham double monks. Thanks.

    Alright @watchidiotyou can count me in. I am unsure on sole though... Do you have pictures to compare? What will the cost be on this?

    That's great! There are 3 types of Dainite soles according to a previous post by Leaves.
    50 - single
    505 - double
    500 - basically single weight with a thin leather midsole

    Maybe we could all compromise and do Dainite 500? @Leaves do you have a definitive comparison photo between the 3 Dainite weights? I tried searching the thread but came up empty handed in the Dainite 500.

    If we get the GMTO order in by Friday it'll be SEK3200 exl vat. After Friday there will be a 3% increase. In USD that's roughly anywhere between $380-400 + shipping.

    Thanks GTH. Te split reverse welts make the Dainite 500 look beefier than it is I'm guessing.

    I remember from a post by Namor before that the difference between single Dainite and double Dainite is just a few mm and to the naked eye looks virtually the same. I personally like the comfort of double Dainite but if you and Desi Monez prefer single I'm also game with that. I'd just like to get this going. I love the look of polo suede and I think it'd look great in the 905. If you guys are in we just need 2 more.

    Are you sure Carmina will make that model on Rain? I didn´t think Carmina did split toes on Rain.

    My understandning is that this GMTO is for this model http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/frontpage/products/carmina-tanned-derby but in Polo suede.




    I´ll prefer Dainite 500 or single if more people is up for that. I don´t want Tomir or leather sole.
