Folks, I am talking to you who are interested in fur line footwear.
@TheTukker @WhyUEarly @gzheydey @Proleet
We could not get chukka of the ground, so what do you say about a fur line Chelsea?

Is Burgundy Utah a long shot?
Chestnut Utah not available?
Sienna Hatch grain is available.

@Notch also has another grain leather that is more like Utah grain from what I hear. It is called Alpine Grain, and it comes in 4 different colors https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4o4feo1jdvun3a8/AAA1d7jVx5jM7Su6ciHufwpQa/High Resolution Leather Samples/Alpine Grain?dl=0&subfolder_nav_tracking=1

What say you?
I might be interested

I have to say that the Contemporary Almond Last fits me the best across most mid-tier maker.

- Hugs the ankle comfortably
- Slim across the forefoot
- Tight waist
- Snug across instep

This is a wonderful last, Tom. I think you knock it out of the park with this. (For me, at least)
Agree with the points you made regarding the ankle, waist and instep fit. For me though, the last fit smaller than plenty of other lasts in same size i.e. UK 9.5. Lasts I am comparing to are C&J 325, Carmina Rain , Forest, EG 606, 202, 888 ( I take UK 10E here that's comparable to 9.5 in others).
Will be trying UK 10 in SOH last next to see if that fit better

I would like to take the Alpine Grain. I prefer high boot. Only see Byron is available on SOH. If there's no other options other than Byron, I can go with with Byron with Alpine (first two color). However, really prefer Tom can develop other boot styles.

Seeing if there's any interest for the William semi brogue, on heavy sole (Dainite with midsole for example) and metal eyelets, in Ebony Utah. Received an email from a customer and the leather is in stock, so 5 needed.

I would be in for one of these but without toe medallion, if that's possible.

i agree with u... they look very well made and the design is superb. the last is balanced.. choice of materials is good.. price is superb.....

i am a sucker for a split toe derby (TBH)... but the only thing missing in these shoes is a hand stitched apron. This is a massive personal preference as i love a hand stitched apron.
