    Thanks for the clarification NWTeal. Basically we're asking if we could do the same as what the G&G GMTO groups are doing - that is to beat the 28 Feb cut off and avoid price increase if possible :)

    If that's the exact same boot Leatherfoot and @arneben did I would feel kind of a douche for doing a GMTO for it. Have you talked to them about this project first, given its their original idea?

    ^^^ Well, this is a different sole. [​IMG] It's to your credit to take the high road, and while I don't presume to speak for Arne, I think this is just a standard 80092 in standard ante marron - not something of a unique makeup in either style or materials. In my books you guys are both exemplary of all that is good in premium men's footwear retailers. [​IMG]

    Patrik - 2 questions:

    1) How long is this pre-order open on this one, and
    2) Does it jam you up on the Polo U-wing bal boot if I go for this one instead?

    I tend to agree with Roger here if the boot is basically a stock boot. But it shows what a stand-up dude Patrik is.

    I'm surprised nobody's proposing an interesting Double Monk MTO from Carmina.

    I wish Carmina had a better grip on a nice subtle dark hatch grain.

    Carmina cap toe cognac shell doubles anyone?

    There is no available shell unless you single MTO.

    Thanks for the heads up. Now that you mentioned it, I did look up leatherfoot's site and it's not exactly the same make up, the main difference being the sole type. Leatherfoot's make up is more like the stock 080092 from Carminas website, but in Robert last.

    To be honest I didn't know there was a similar leatherfoot make up as I was basing the design off the stock Model 080092 on Carmina's online store but with single Dainite sole instead of half rubber sole.

    Please let us know if the change in sole quaIifies this as a GMTO we could process by way of Skoak. We would understand if you would be hesitant to accept this GMTO though as your approach to dealing with peers is one of the reasons we like doing business with you.

    1. Sorry, I never stated this in the link, it's Idus Martiae - March 15
    2. Can't do this man, sorry. It will be like opening up Pandora's Box, that's why we can't allow transfers on pre-orders.



    Or this: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/colle.../products/carmina-black-frankenstitch-deposit



    I'm going to pass on this guys, sorry, it doesn't feel right copying this style. I know the Polo Suede might not be considered so different from Dark Brown Suede in many people's mind but at least it's a color we actually made Carmina introduce and is unique for us right now (at least until some other retailer stocks it, and I'm sure they will).

    In that case, let's do the polo suede U-wing oxford instead! [​IMG]
