    And, what about a pair of Double Monks with double leather sole and flat welt?
    Something like this but more Trickeresque

    Shoe Healer is putting together an order for some burgundy Bowoods and Longwing boots.
    See his facebook page. (Sadly for me, no 9.5s in the longwings.)
    I just confirmed Bulk MTO for Burgundy Burnished Bowood on Commando Soles, and the Longwing Boot in Burgundy Burnished on Dainite Sole. Both on Barbour Welts in Natural Finish.​

    pm rkusmant for availability,

    I am a 10.5 in C&J and a 10UK in Trickers, so i think 1/2 down would be good, you can also contact richard the shoehealer for sizing advice

    hope that helps

    No 8.5s for me either, sadly.

    Anyone want to try to group buy some more sizes in this LWB?

    I don't think I ever got an answer in the official tricker's thread, but is there anyone interested in a 6 width group buy?

    Richard has just informed me that the second batch of Eatons is ready for shipping. Still wondering if anyone wants to do that Burgundy Longwing boot...

    Good to hear that....

    Burgundy longwing sounds like a good option, how about this one?

    Different color/welt/sole?

    I don't know if they make a Longwing Austerity.

    I was thinking;

    Burgundy Calf
    4444 last
    Natural welt
    Dainite sole
    Speed hooks optional?

    Richard is having a similar make up made, but he sold out so fast I couldn't get an order in.

    I'd be up for a burgandy longwing with natural welt and brogueing.
    Not so hot on an austerity though.

    I think we can start getting the bulk order list.
    But the delivery won't be until Feb/March 2012.

    Longwing/Golosh Boots
    Burnished Burgundy Calf
    4444 last
    Natural flat welt
    Brown dainite sole
    Brass eyelets

    What if we add burgundy suede on the back strap (small vertical piece behind the heel) and red pull tab?

    Not sure about the suede on the back strap thingie but I could live with it.
    I think it might look better on the tongue ala the way the Bureau does with orange.
    Anyway, just a suggestion.
    As long as it's Burgandy with natural flat welt and nothing too weird, I'm in.

    I'm definitely in, but not sure about the suede bit. Would prefer it on the back or without as I'm not sure what you mean by on the tongue. I'm with zippy, don't want anything too weird on this one. Also don't mind about the pull tab.

    I like the idea of the suede part on the tongue, subtle detail..
