    This is how I have been charged also.

    And the mto fee for my first 15+ items was $125, now is $110.

    It seems the mto option is getting a fair amount of attention, so any of this might change, but...

    The Long Branches at the moment represent some incredible choices for new builds with only a $110 mto fee
    $375 'your way' suede? CXL? Oxblood?

    Yes, we managed to get the burgundy shell strands GMTO,which wasn't in the first batch of GMTOs, on the RDA price.

    You're very much welcome alexdell! Those boots look great! I wore mine w/o applying anything, but if you have squeaking on the tongue, some leather lotion or leather condition/cleaner will help mute the sound. Also if you plan on using it against rain/slush then a light coat of polish would help.

    Soles are single Dainite with leather midsole.

    Hey Guys,

    I just received the different color samples in the store for the trunk show and thought I'd share with you all.
    [​IMG]

    I just took this with my cell phone but the colors look pretty true. Left to right that is Green, Blue, Natural and Brown.

    We do still have some openings for each color on the pre-order list.

    You can either PM me or email the store directly and reference the styleforum at [email protected]
    Alternately you can call the store directly at 404-665-0149...be sure to mention StyleForum!

    Cheers :)
    Joshua

    Man I really, really, really regret passing on the grain EC's. I hope someone puts together another order of those.

    Speaking of that burgundy shell Strand GMTO, how long does it normally take to receive a GMTO? This is my first GMTO and I can't wait to see that box at my doorstep.

    I regret getting stuck in a downpour with mine today... [​IMG]

    Yet, that's what they are, my maybe-bad-weather boots. Still, I really wish I had put on the bean boots instead....

    I'm really not a shell guy (30 pairs, none shell), but that green is gorgeous.

    OK guys, I'm going to hit the Boston SS trunk show tomorrow (anyone else going around noon?) and am considering breaking my purchase ban to get a casual blucher in natural shell. Can anyone talk me into or out of a:

    Jomoc
    Natural shell
    Brass eyelets
    Reverse split chili welt
    Light brown edging
    Contrast piping, similar in color to the light brown edging

    Newbie here, though I have scrolled through the EC GMTO pics couple of times. They are all awesome and inspiring enough for me to join this forum.
