    I really wish you guys chose mahogany country calf for this design, I would be placing deposit right away. I think mahogany country calf is a lot more versatile color than rosewood. Rosewood is really reddish and I would prefer on less rugged sole.
    Maybe you should change this order to mahogany country calf and next year do Alderley in rosewood country calf, I would be in for a pair of each.

    Rosewood is not that red IMO, especially after some wear. It ages extremely well, we were shown a pair of aged Galways in Rosewood on Pitti and it looked absolutely amazing. That was what really made us decide for the Rosewood CC instead of any other material.

    The Galway Veldtschoen in Rosewood CC and shearling lining will be the only Galway we stock this coming fall. There are so many suggestions and thoughts about the Galway and which make up would be "the best", and in the end we will go with what we feel is the best option for our store. You can't win them all.

    Order it as a personal MTO then. It ticks me off when people try to influence group MTOs/preorders to their exact specifications. You have to compromise if you don't want to pay the upcharge.

    Quote:Your makeups are consistently full of win. More a case that you can't please everyone - fact that will never change regardless of the awesomeness of any particular MTO project. My naturally toasty feet make shearling lining of any kind too warm. But this will be a terrific boot for those who want the extra warmth, and I know you will offer plenty of other tempting options for me down the road.

    While I agree with the majority of this statement, dare I say the reason most people start Group MTOs initially is because they personally have a certain shoe in mind but don't want pay the MTO surcharge. The problem however, lies when a Group MTO is already well set in motion and a newly interested one decides to voice his/her opinion in hopes of swaying the group to change the order.

    ^ Those are beautiful. I'm seriously tempted. Tips for sizing on that last? 1 down from Brannock in general or .5? Thanks.
