That is a smart move IMO, it is much better to get exactly what you want than talk yourself into something that will sit on the shelf and you will never wear. The Elgin is my favorite rough collection shoe and I really like the waxy saddle leather finish more than any of the other rough collection leathers.
That picture confirms that I definitely made the right choice. I'm more excited for that shoe than any other one yet. Thanks for sharing it.
Here's the details from an earlier post of mine - keep in mind the shoe is a closeout so once it's gone, it's gone:
The Tan Elgin as a second is part of the 2 for $250 sale or I think $179 on its own. A first quality pair is $197.
