you could ask him if he could reproduce this for under £500:
This event will actually be one of the few times where one will be able to place single MTO orders, so I'll ask. I'm very interested in one like that myself. The price would then be about the same as for the one that I posted earlier. It'll be interesting to hear what he'll say about the curved ankle.
EDIT: I'll also ask how many pairs is needed for their regular MTO program. Maybe we could arrange some Fedora Lounge MTOs in the future?
