    I am very grateful of the deal, I just wish I could get an Eagle Country MTO going. I'm just mad so I'm going to take my toys and go home! Day late and a dollar short. I think Ryden was spot on with his theory, though.

    Email Paul and let him know. I've emailed him a few times and I've always gotten a personal response.

    If everyone PMs me their name and E-mail, I could send Paul an E-mail and CC you all and we can go to him together (virtually).

    Might be worth a shot.

    I don't follow what's going on. Are we emailing Mr. Grangaard simply to show him our beautiful MTOs created through the program he initiated? Or are we emailing to protest the rescindment of the MTO Program's use of discontinued models and sale prices?

    The former, I believe.

    To clarify: does this mean MTO is not available on styles that appear only in the clearance section of AE's website?

    When browsing AE, shoes are grouped in two sections. The upper half of the page lists full-priced shoes, and the lower half is titled Clearance Sections. I am assuming styles are only available for MTO if they appear in the full-priced section?

    I believe the intent or my intent was to praise the MTO program and then to cordially request that they consider making at least a few discontinued shoes for us (Bayfields and Eagle Countries).

    Completely agree with this one.

    Though I understand that the prerogative that allows us to enjoy MTOs for discontinued styles is solely Paul's as AE CEO, I do hope that when he sees all the beautiful Eagle Counties, Cliftons and Bayfields that have come out of the MTO program will make him reconsider.

    Has anyone done an MTO on a 333 last in C width? I don't see any 333 in C on the website.

    Only because someone commented here yesterday on my Strands.

    Walnut Shell Cordovan Strands. If Walnut Shell ever comes back, another pair would be on my list...

    Nick, you are correct, I went through all of the 333 lasted shoes and couldn't find a C width on any. That may be an Allison question. But, you are limited to the sizes that AE has a last for. When I did my MTO Harrison, I was initially interested in getting a C width until I tried on a D. She didn't say that I couldn't do a C width, but she may not have researched it enough to be that specific.

    These look great, I would get a pair if I could. I had the chance to do this as an MTO last summer but went with cappuccino shell instead. I like my choice, but this is a fantastic shoe.

    I don't feel it's unreasonable for Mr Grangaard to restrict the offerings to current models for efficiency's sake. That said, perhaps a minimum-run MTO could be done on select models, as with the G&G or Viberg threads. Thoughts?
