    Good morning, All!

    The shell cordovan trunk show is coming up soon and I just got an email from the person in charge of the events last night. We've had such high demand for this particular series of MTOs that production is altering the scheduled shipment date to 1/14/15. (2 extra weeks to fulfill all the orders)

    Just think of it as a delayed Christmas gift...to yourself :)

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly and I'm happy to help where I can.

    Cheers,
    Joshua

    Wait. Does that apply to the orders from the shows that have already occurred, as well? I went to the Chicago show and ordered mine at that time.

    The completion and ship date per my emails with Ryan is 12/22. 1/14/15 would be 3+ weeks from original date.

    Yep, for the 4 shows that have already taken place the 12/22 date is being honored. For the shows taking place today forward, they are giving the 1/14 date. I spoke with the folks in charge to ask the same questions and they said they feel better about moving the date back a few weeks than trying to promise the earlier ship-date and disappointing people.

    The MTOs could come faster, but they don't want to set expectations they aren't 100% sure they can meet.

    Cheers,
    Joshua

    Hmm...that means I probably should have ordered at the MN trunk show (local to me) this past weekend instead of pre-ordering from the Boston store last week (their show is today). Oh well, what's another 3 weeks when it comes to MTO shoes? I just hope that they comes out correctly the first time.

    Sounds awesome! What exactly are you referring to when you say contrast piping?

    Being a 13B/C, I'm just crossing all my fingers and toes that there's some left over from the trunk shows that I can MTO in late December when I can actually afford something. I don't have much hope though.

    Yea it's either shoebank or hoping the things I have for sale move soon. I am thinking of posting a pair of Patriot loafers for sale right away to maybe free up some funds. The more I see that natural and bottle green the more crazy I get haha. Might have to move some things to eBay and try my luck.


    Anyone know when the last day you could place orders would be? It's really tough to pass on this opportunity.

    What is everyone getting in bottle green shell?

    Strand or Dundee in bottle green? I feel like Dundee might be too much green? The brogues on the strand may diffuse the green a little bit? Any thoughts? Trying hard to convince myself not to get either.

    I'm not getting anything, but the two things that come immediately to mind for me are the MacNeil (there was a picture of it from one of the stores) and a captoe boot, such as the First Avenue or maybe the Eagle County. I think those two are perfect, for some reason.
