    Is there any interest in a blucher in brown calf on the Rain for GMTO?

    Here are two recent makeups, one of which is available now and which I might just get, given the upcoming price changes, but both are in Forest and I would like the slightly more sleek shape of Rain. This autumn's make-up:

    Last spring, though sold out now in my size.

    I'd have a preference for the latter: punch cap in rain.

    I would say it's fairly soft, but I'm unable to compare because I don't have EG Utah.

    Is there any interest in some sort of Carmina wingtip makeup in a Rain?

    What about Victory soles? They are low-profile and hard wearing; great balance. I think tobacco would look great.

    You prefer 3 eyelets over the 5 eyelet (model 905) ?

    What's the difference between Tobacco and Polo? Also are you sure the Tomir and York are lighter than Dainite? Any expert advice, @Leaves ?

    I'd be open to giving Victory soles a try. I don't envision these chukkas as my hardest-wearing chukkas, but I'm willing to stretch a point or two on the soles.

    I do prefer three eyelets.
    I'm not actually sure that the Tomir and York are lighter; just inferring from the fact that they are half-soles. Could be wrong.

    Tobacco is a brighter mid-brown suede closer to the yellow side of things, while polo is a bit darker and more reddish. Here's a comparison:

    nice photo. Wish it was better quality. The tobacco looks more like a walnut color. I'll do a little more research. I just want to get in on these while they're still affordable.

    Edit:

    I don't know man. The Polo is just luscious, and something very unique.

    The Tobacco kind of reminds me of Timberlands, or something you could find in a dept. store.

    I've owned or own all three soles. Standard dainite is heaviest, stiffest, and sturdiest. Then York, then tomir. Tomir almost feels like a leather sole in most respects to me. Tomir does seem to have better grip on wet pavement if I recall.

    With the GMTO prices being honored until month's end...

    Would anyone be interested in a Rain Last Chelsea in Either Polo or Tobacco Suede?

    ^ Definitely.

    Now would be a good time to start hoarding gold, bullets, canned food, etc...

    I can't firmly commit yet, but you can add me to the interested list for Polo on Victory or Tomir.

    Hey guys,
    for those who are interested in shark leather for EB for GMTOs, this is just an update.
    There is an 800SEK upcharge ex VAT for boots (not sure for shoes), I think it's really quite reasonable.
    And here is a close up of what the grain pattern looks like.
    I also recall someone earlier on saying he was interested in green shark, so I thought I'd share.
