    we only had 3 people, we'd need 3 more for it to go through.

    I'm having trouble following along, too. Is the Isham a go? What are the final specs? And price?

    Thank you very much. Isham and Vintage Rioja will be a great combo.

    Many thanks. Go Team Green!

    It is going to be a great surprise and a fantastic pair of shoes. :)

    Thank you for sharing and for your support.

    Three months will pass sooner than you think. It is downhill from now on to the summer, at least here in Sweden.

    Too many MTO's, not enough instant gratification. Saw the Inverness come back in stock in my size today, done deal.

    So I'm finalizing my order for Edwardian and almond cc galway and midnight blue / midnight blue hatch grain. Originally I was going with 82 HAF soles. Do you guys think 202 would look better with double leather? Thanks.

    For me it would be Dainite, but between the two you mentioned I'd lean towards double leather.

    Those that are doing GG MTO are you ordering GG shoe trees? Are the lasted shoe trees still available? TG73?

    Yessir. What should and should not be done to the shoe prior to first wear? Are they good to go for a while?

    @RogerP gave an excellent response to someone the other day. I think it was in the EG thread. Your shoe brush will be your best friend with shoes coming straight from the factory, that and of course shoe trees. The finish they received at the factory should be just fine for now.

    Mine is 202 with double leather. It's a good choice

    @Leaves what is the wait time for single GG MTOs at the moment, 4 months?

    I would pick the last you want, first. Then choose the sole. I am equally a fan of the 82 and 202. Ryden's Edwardian looks awesome on 202.

    I think the HAF might be a little dainty in the waist for a boot on 202. It might work on 82 but I'm still a bit hesitant.

    Haven't even gotten my first pair of EG, but I've already caught the fever! Jumped on the DOAK Galway over the weekend and just put in an order for the Westminster. Seems to be a lot of similar stories in this thread recently. Thanks, Skoak!
