Considerable savings?  This "reaming" that is grabbing headlines has barely dented the GBP's spike over the last ten days.  You could have enjoyed more favorable exchange rates through much of 2016....  
That Indy Chukka from Leffot looks killer.
Last night I collected my shoes  from various places--the office, mudroom, work bag.  I kind of shocked myself when I counted and realized I have 18 pairs of Aldens.  Last time I actually counted it was 11.  Oops!   Naval Boot 8 2014 Leffot 975 Old 8 2001 - 975 New 8 2009 B SWB - brass REV D 8 2015 Madison SWB - Halleck FLAT...
[[SPOILER]] That's what I call a TPS report. 
Great goddamn boots.  Love the wear.
I always figured that beyond simple rarity, a defining characteristic of "unicorn" is that it is something you'd never part with.  Or maybe difficult to acquire = unicorn anddifficult to acquire x personal preference = grail.
I would definitely buy another pair.  That, or go to the shoe care thread.
I knew that was coming!  
 I'll agree that the style choice is yours alone.  IMO the brass is a great touch on the right shoe.  If you want a workmanship reference, I can say Mack did an excellent job. Optioned the brass but left the edges alone: 
So true!  While not rarities, I have two pairs of 975s and two pairs of color 8 and one cigar SWB--my wife isn't astute enough on my shoes to realize there are more than she knows about!
