    I don't think you can. I'm guessing @mdubs had @Burzan get them when they had a trunk show at O'Connors up in Canada. Garnet was a limited available color. My avatar is garnet shell cornwallis and it is sourced from that event.

    You got it, I actually really wanted to get a shell Liverpool from the event but I'm glad I didn't. I heard all the orders for them got cancelled after about a month.

    That Cornwallis in Garnet looks fantastic! One of the better models I've seen from AE in recent years.

    Thanks!

    I'll bet making the liverpool was too difficult, possibly seeing a lot of tearing. I do regret not getting some other makeups that weren't available during the US trunk show. Oh well there will always be other shoes haha.

    Without reading through this whole thread, what would my chances of getting a navy chromexcel Higgins Mill made up be?

    IMO, probably good since the HM is already CXL, so it should be a straight forward make up for them. Just a question of whether AE has Navy in stock. But I think you'll still have to pay the SMU fee.
