 From a purist POV, you are 100% correct!  And that's how I've approached all my boots and raw denim but I was feeling lazy, I guess. 
I still need to post pics of some of my other boots.  But I think I am going to try to limit myself to the purchase of two pairs of boots this year, in all likelihood both English.  One I am almost certain will be an EG Galway, probably on the 64 last using some casual-leaning leather (one-tone).  I will likely need advice from those Galway-knowledgeable folks in picking the leather.  My other boot might be another C&J.  Maybe a Skye or possibly a stock Coniston. 
 Agreed.  I am almost tempted to try to buy a used pair of these rather than wait for new ones.  So cool looking!
I go with my Barrie size for both.
I once inquired about converting a storm welt to a simple flat welt and was told that they wouldn't recommend it as the leather/shell behind the storm welt might be a different color once exposed as it's been behind the storm welt for some time (sun exposure, etc.).
Now that is how boots are meant to look!  Awesome!
@mdubs, your whiskey Harlechs look amazing!  And you take the best photos.  Because of where I live and with so little rain, I prefer the double leather soles that we got on the first run but I would have preferred if mine were all blind eyelets like yours.   Hope you guys get enough for a 3rd run.  They are amazing boots.  I will say though that the dark brown shell Harlechs are also amazing.  The patina on those is developing really nicely.
 Those look as incredible as I thought they would.  Congrats on a good score!
  Well done, Spencer. You're building a collection similar to mine.  I got the olive Guidi boots from BBC and the matte black (Guidi also) directly from Viberg.  For being such heavy boots, it's incredible how comfortable Vibergs can be.
 I arrived at Rogue Territory denim after going through Nudies, Raleigh's, Eternal, Momo's and 3sixteen.  I still like Momo's and 3sixteen but my RT unsanforized slubby Stantons are incredible! I will say that if one wants to spend less, like around $150, Epaulet makes a really good everyday selvedge denim.
