    The design above are the only ones currently submitted by forum member, please post your desired design on this thread and I'll bump it to the first post. Remember currently only 12 pairs per month is guaranteed special MTO pricing, either 1 design x 12 pairs or 2 designs x 6 pairs. The way it'll work right now is that the design that gets 6 people lined up will be confirmed first and placed on the production queue, regardless when the design is submitted to the forum. If you have immediate need for Tricker's MTO, please contact Richard directly, but this method will be full MTO price. I'll find out if this list of 12 pairs/month can be expanded. STATUS update: August delivery: 6 Eatons (confirmed) (the other has been used by other groups) September delivery: 6 LW shoes (confirmed), 6 slots open

    i would probably say nay but wouldnt REALLY mind either way. i think the lw looks cleaner without eyelets and would def opt for eyelets for a boot but not really for a lw blucher edit: dont want to spam this whole place with sizing questions. just want to clarify that im a 9 brannock and would go 8 uk like the dude below for these 4497 lw right?
    Went through the whole thread again for sizing info on the 4444 last (Bourton). US9D on the Brannock which everyone agrees would be a UK8 / 5 fitting on the 4497 (Stow)

    You can post your design, and we'll figure out the 6 participants. I'll add your design to the first post.

    You can always get your MTO individually, but you'll pay full MTO price

    I'm a nay for that, but if the majority want eyelets, I can be flexible.

    just so we can be clear to get a better price deal, there are currently 2 choices, eaton and longwing... this is the LS eaton pictured here http://www.leathersoulhawaii.com/201...ite-soles-lsw/
    1 boot and 1 shoe???

    Couldn't find a picture of natural edge/brown dainite but did turn up these beauties with brown dainite.
