    MTO # 2

    the stitching was made incorrectly but AE offered me a great deal on them to make up for it. Here were the original specs:

    1579 CAPPUCCINO CORDOVAN
    TONE ON TONE UPPER STITCH
    STANDARD LEATHER INSOLE-HEEL PAD WITH LEATHER LINER OK
    CHILI SPLIT REVERSE WELT
    TAN WELT STITCH
    BLACK DAINITE OUTSOLE

    I really want to get those Brown Shell Strands with Indy Lining, Edging, and Sole. But, I ended up buying 5 pairs of Aldens this week... All crimes of opportunities like eBay and JCrew offering 20% off. I need to save for a little and see what I am going to be offloading before acquiring anything else...

    It was made to the specs of the Webgem with a slight alteration to the sedge trim. I cannot remember exactly the difference but there was a minor tweak I believe

    Two MTOs I'd like to see reposted here are the black suede Rutledge and burgundy shell Hannover. Does anyone recall the owners?

    This is a great thread, thanks for setting it up Mike. It is nice to see all the excellent MTO's that have been created.

    I was able to get in on this last summer while they still had walnut and cappuccino shell available. I ended up getting one of each color: walnut shell Cliftons and cappuccino shell Strands. Both had basically the same makeup:

    - single Rendenbach leather sole
    - light brown edge with wheeling
    - chili welt

    I really like how both of these turned out. The Clifton is a great shoe in my opinion. I ended up ordering this in burgundy shell a few months ago.

    Definitely awesome, also looking to see how these turn out! Even with a ptb in hand and a lwb on the way I sincerely want more natty cxl in my life. My next MTO might be a natty cxl boot...

    I emailed Allison regarding doing an MTO on some Promontory Point or Eagle County Boots and this was the response I received.


    Good Morning Nick,

    Recently we have made some changes with our custom orders, I am no longer to place orders for discontinued and retired styles. I can only produce footwear that is a part of our currently collection. I apologize for the unfortunate news, and if there is anything else I can assist you with please do not hesitate to let me know.

    Thank you,

    Allison Meyer

    Dangit! I wish I would have received that email instead of silence for over a week. Oh well. Back to Alden. I wanted an Eagle Country boot MTO.
