Pretty married on the last. I believe Leaves said he'd just be in if it was 74945, and I don't particularly want a different last either. The 74945 is really lovely, and the japanese waist will make it even better.Two Qs:
1. How married are y’all to the last?
2. Regardless of 1, I could probably be pushed into opting in, though I’d prefer pushing the “official” start of the order wait until December. I’m in zero rush to wear “dress” shoes, and my F around funds are already allocated for November. Another last might push me into the buy regardless, but I’d probably opt to keep ky powder dry otherwise, at least for the month.
It's the term Bonafé uses for alligator (all alligators used by GG, StC, etc are young/baby alligators it's just that they don't write that out). Full grown alligators get a lot of scuffs and scars 'cause they fight a lot in their pits. So they are not well suited for making fine luxury items.Nice!
Out of sheer curiosity, your quote said baby alligator. Is that what gets used for details on shoes versus full grown gator? When we talk gator we are talking American Alligator instead of Caiman right?
True story. An old client sent us an email today. Asking for the style name for this EG pair (as he is listing them on eBay). He had emailed Edward Green and asked them first but they had told him that they could not find the style in their archives so it was most likely not made by them, obviously worrying the client a bit. It took me all but 6 seconds to Google it myself as I could not recall the style off the bat; Harrogate. Any more questions about your EG styles feel free to email us. Just kidding.

Thank you for your kind words.Adding to what you had posted on the GG thread on retailers and manufacturers. Majority of my Carmina purchases were from Leatherfoot (local store, now RIP) and Skoak, ever since LF closed up and Skoak stopped stocking them I haven't bought a pair since. I have tho since, bought 3 pairs of Lof and Tung.
Even tho both Carmina and Skoak are overseas to me, I just have such great experiences and comfort with Skoak that I have no qualms that they will always do the customer right, but with Carmina on their own I have less so.
I'm in if we hold until December, though no worries if that delay is of little interest.
Another lovely GMTO from Skoak, I think one of the last ones they did with G&G. So glad boot season is finally here.
Also, it sounds like we still need one more for the black croc strap loafers? Let's get those going!
I'm fine with starting things a bit late. I believe they usually leave them up for a month anyways. @Leaves would this make 4 for it? If the GMTO goes up sometime in November the window of orders would go into December right?I'm in if we hold until December, though no worries if that delay is of little interest.
