@Mrfuzon @H. E. Pennypacker

If you guys are still interested I’m going to launch this one. It’s a good make up and we willl fill the GMTO, I’m fully confident in this.
Did you settle on specs?
I'm still interested.

Model: 3824
Last: 363 MOD
Leather: Tärnsjö grain
Sole edges: tan or a light-medium brown
Soles: Ridgeway
Eyelets: same as before, antique/brass
Heavy fudging

Sounds good @Mrfuzon ?

Also, is it possible to get my pair lasted with facings/lacings open to reduce the high-instep @Leaves ?

I have confirmed availability of the Ridgeway soles. So I’m going to post this GMTO shortly. First four order will get lasted shoes trees free of charge.

I’m assuming to email the shop for my pair to be lasted with the facings/lacings open?

Yes, that would be great. Just do it straight after the order has been placed and we’ll make a note of that in your order.

It’s been about a year since my last EB MTO venture, and I recently reached out to the Skoaktiebolaget team with a request for a heavily modified short wing lazyman. I’m curious if anyone here would be interested in a GMTO.

5087D068-8D44-4BAB-923F-4FE3E24D1C45.jpeg

The starting point would be basically these model 4005 side gusseted short wings.

HOWEVER:
I’m currently waiting to hear whether Enzo Bonafe could reproduce this style as a seamless wholecut side gusset slip on.

Additionally, I want the perforations in the seamless wholecut to create the short wing seen above, and then an Adelaide throat pattern as opposed to a Balmoral.

I was thinking of doing the above on the 946 last in handwelted construction on single leather soles with a fiddleback waist, flush mounted toe taps, and a pitched heel.

I’m still waiting to see about the feasibility of these requests however I wanted to see if there was an interest among the forum in such a model.

Currently I’m thinking of using a dark brown box Calf, like the espresso goldanil calf from Annonay, but I am toying with the idea of a pair in black.
Any interest out there?
