    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.

    I have the Galway boots on the 82, 202 , 64E and 64F last

    Only in the 82 last I take an 8.5 all the rest are a UK.8 , I would also not go for the F fitting unless you have very broad feet the E fit is good enough.

    Hope this helps! you are going to love these boots.

    I went with the same size I have in 888, 82 and 202.

    I wear the same size in 82, 202 and 64. 8E in all of them, 64 has more volume but that's good in that kind of boot.

    I also wear the same size on all these lasts although the 202 and 64 is more generous in width, in my opinion that's a good thing for boots just as RogerP also concludes.


    We generally recommend sizing down 0.5 size from US sizing although references to other lasts is essential for us to recommend sizing, please e-mail us for more sizing advise.

    So are you a size 8.5 or a 9 US? I'm trying to figure out sizing on the Galway. I'm 8.5 US so I was going to go with an 8UK on the 82 last.

    Interesting...I didn't know a storm welt could be done on veldtschoen construction since the leather is sewn on the top welt. Anyone have a picture of this?
