   Thanks guys for the very much appreciated input.  The Skoak makeup sounds killer but ryden is totally correct, I'd only be able to wear them maybe two months out of the year, if that.  Drop the shearling and I'd be in. I'm beginning to open up to a two-tone boot.  Maybe for my 2nd Galway!
@DWFII, thanks for your mentions of Bick4.  I thought I'd give it a try so ordered some and tried it on a few pairs of boots today.  Very pleased. It seems to condition and hydrate better than what I've used before --- Reno, VSC, Meltonian cream, etc.  I also have some GlenKaren cleaner/conditioner and neutral cream and I know they're supposed to be good (and sure smell good) but they require a lot of work, otherwise my boots are left kind of tacky/sticky.  I may very well...
 That's amazing how many are signing up for round 3.  It just speaks for what an amazing makeup this is.  I had forgotten round 1 had actually started with hoit proposing the dark brown shell and somehow whiskey was mentioned and that's all history now.
 On the Galway front (as I'm more familiar with C&J), I'm definitely going to need advice/suggestions from the Galway-heads. One definite is that I want a casual boot (not two-tone).  Those two-tone Galways on the 82 last are absolutely gorgeous and I love looking at them and might even enjoy having a pair but I'd rarely find the opportunity to wear them.  So I'm thinking the 64 last.  Not sure about the 202 last.  I'm guessing the 64 leans more toward a work boot shape,...
 I am a shoe guy.  I have one pair of shoes total, no lie.    Two if you count my EP snuff trainers.
 Those are gorgeous and definitely one of the C&J contenders.  Thanks for sharing (and enabling).
 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.
