    Some nice leathers @ truman right now. Contemplating on waiting it out a bit more to see that Green Janus Suede...

    OR do I just cave and get either Natty CXL, Teak Mohawk, or Snuff Mohawk. Damn...

    Weight does depend some on the sole too. That commando sole is much heavier than Danaite for example.

    The issue is I'm not quite sure which sole it is.. I ordered the Ripple sole, though there is an outside chance that they'll come with the commando. There is excitement in the mystery.

    I thought the GMTO was cancelled due to Vince not being happy with the leather he got?

    Could you post pics of the olive chromepack when you got the pair? I change to natural Dublin and want to see how dark the olive is.

    Vince is nice enough to offer alternative leather he had at that moment like natural Dublin (which I've choosen) or you can stick with the original olive or natural chromepak at your own risk

    The Olive was actually good enough quality, the issue was that it's almost black rather than a nice deep olive. The Natural was a mess (inconsistent and blotchy). Having waited >3 months, Vince very kindly offered them at a sample price and I went with it. The leftover money will get tucked away till a new last is announced in the new year.
    The plan is to do so. Having lurked long enough on here and r/GYW, it's the right thing to do.


    This is the makeup.

    Size 11.5 D (medium)
    Olive Chromepak

    Tongue can be another leather/color if you think it would look good. Leaving this up to the artisan.
    Brass eyelets + speed hooks.
    Plain Unstructured toe

    Black ripple XL/jumbo sole (Commando if the others are not an option.)
    Pulltab

    They are scheduled for delivery on Tuesday...

    Review:

    Sizing is TTS, I'm 11 in clarks, 11 in OSB, 12 in APC, 12 in Grenson, 11.5 in Timberlands. Initially I considered size 11, but figured that they'd be too small. The 11.5 fits well with light/medium socks on. Thick socks were almost uncomfortable.

    Materials are great, the soles look awesome but squeak like crazy on wooden floors. The Olive Chromepack has a lovely matt texture which hints as it's green origins but is black to ay casual glance. There is some hinting at build issues at the toe of one boot where the leather is either creased or scored next to the welt. The final picture shows where a corner of the leather is split/frayed. Nothing major from the first once over though.

    Communication with Vince was exceptional, the order involved 40 emails and one phone call. He tried to special order mini-ripple soles but it proved too much, requiring a minimum order of 100 per size. The ripples look great. Delivery took a while but that's just the nature of the Christmas season. The GMTO was confirmed 8/27/15 and they arrived today.

    The makeup:
    Size 11.5 D (medium)
    Olive Chromepak
    Tongue can be another leather/color if you think it would look good. Leaving this up to the artisan.
    Brass eyelets + speed hooks.

    Black ripple XL/jumbo sole (Commando if the others are not an option.)
    Pulltab
