    Not tied to green lining personally - or see it as a deal breaker, prefer orange to red.

    Hello

    I`am in.

    I`m the one that posted the photo you referred to earlier... Eaton on a 4444 last and burgundy calf leather :)

    I got another pair of Eaton, in Snuff Waxy Commander, no toe die, orange linning, black binding, black pull loops, black eyelets, barbour welt in dark brown finish with natural welt and off-white welt stitching, black commando sole and dark brown waxed laces.
    (the natural welt and the off white stiching is polished with a mix of black and burgundy Saphir).

    Both mine are on a 4444 last but with a fitting 6. But I guess I can take a pair with fitting 5. I need a pair when I do not need to wear heavy socks. Both my pairs are ordered trough Richard.

    Appreciate the effort setting up this group MTO.

    Cheers

    Welcome aboard Ravn - they are a very nice looking pair of boots, cap is doffed on those!!!

    So confirmed we have

    Myself/ rainbowgrease/ heterophilous & ravn

    I know from reviewing the thread both ducky & ERIII where on the fence but hopefully the specs are in-line with what you guys wanted and could be on board? If you can let us know either way that would be great.

    Thanks all

    Hi,

    I'm waiting for an MTO order from Richard.

    From other peoples experience, how long do they take to arrive after order is placed?

    He estimated 3 months for delivery..

    I'm a bit impatient and can't wait to receive my shoes!

    Regards

    In my experience, they've always been on the long end of the estimate.
    So 3 months means 3 months and 29 days.
    But his estimates are closer to reality than most other MTO/Special Orders I've done.

    One time it took 10 weeks, another pair of Eatons I ordered took 14 weeks, so I guess 3 months is pretty accurate.

    3 months sounds about right. Well worth the wait!

    I believe you missed Richard from Shoe Healer as an addition to this MTO.
    So new recap:
    Myself/ DomD/ heterophilous /ravn & ShoeHealer

    We need one more to make this happen?

    I`am all in even if it might take a few weeks/month before the last person is on board our group MTO.

    Maybe we can post a link to this tread in an other tread at SF? Someone that is yet not in to Trickers might be tempted, and want to be a part of this MTO... It might be easier when we only need one more person to realize the order?

    Anyway, I`m in no hurry, but the sooner the better :)

    BTW, you should add some contrasted binding :)

    Rob,

    we just completed an MTO for a very similar boot. We opted for the Allan which is a straight captoe but everything else is identical. Perhaps you could ask Richard at Shoe Healer if there is any way to get added to that order? I would imagine finding 5 people after we just completed a very similar makeup may be challenging...
