    @Leaves I don't mean transferring a deposit. I haven't made a deposit yet for the U wing, though I am counted among those who expressed an intention to do so. What I meant is that if I drop out of the U wing GMTO, would you still have the numbers you need for that to continue? If so, that's what I'll likely do and pursue the captoe bal boot instead.

    Oh, we're talking the Uwing Oxford in Polo? I don't think there's actually an organised project for this yet.

    No, I thought there was a u wing bal boot GMTO in Polo? Of course, I could just be confused. Wouldn't be the first time.

    Since
    Since the polo suede 5 eye chukka is dead in the water, I would be willing to join in on this one.

    But there should be! Hello? Echo? It's getting cold and lonely in this glass case of emotion!

    So you cannot do it as a group? I'd be interested.

    Quick opinion question, is a chestnut split toe from carmina too close to a chestnut hatch grain Isham to justify the order. I love the Isham but would consider something like the Eton or Woburn in chestnut hatch grain as well. I want this shoe to be really versatile on the light color side. Something I can use to dress up jeans and a blazer but also wear with slacks and a sport coat. What is everyone's thoughts?

    We completely understand and respect your decision. We'll check in with LF if they can do a run of those boots in single Dainite.

    Changing directions here a little bit. Would you be amenable for doing a boot in this design

    Would it be possible to do this boot on the Robert last, single Dainite?

    Where is the love for some 973's?

    These in dark suede, Robert, single Dainite?

    It looks great on VOAK, but how do you guys feel about the style in a textured leather? I've thought about it in Fox suede, possibly storm welted but on Wensum sole.

    Don't mean to speak for leaves but this GMTO already closed pre-orders on February 12 so if you didn't sign up then you are free to sign up for this new one as you can no longer get in on the uwing Balmoral boot in Polo suede

    Well if it closed on the 12th, then you're right and I'm clear for the Polo 80092.

    That's a terrific boot - I have it in cognac shell and love it. Never seen it on Robert.
