Aw sorry man, I was just riffing on your spelling.
Further to your question, I think that it's not quite dyed through; it doesn't seem to be a bath that they use but a table set-up that allows for multiple hand applied coats.

Just got off the phone with Kyle. He is awesome. He gave me a "last" tutorial that I thought I'd share. I have some LTT Smoke Jumpers in 10.5EE. I feel like they are getting a little tight in the toe box. Kyle suggested I could have those reubuilt to a 10.5F that should alleviate some of that pinch. He also said the LTT SJ is built on a 4811 last that is pretty wide. Based on this and the tracings I sent in, Kyle suggested I look at SDs in 11EE built on the standard last and 11E on the swing last. Makes me feel much better about my sizing dilema. I now just have to save for my build.
Another thing to pass along, Kyle said if you follow Baker on Facebook and/or email them periodically with your size, they might have something on the shelf that you want. This precludes customization obviously, but you might be able to get a deal on them.
You can have a boot rebuilt to a smaller width size? I did not know that...Can they do a shorter length, say 8D to a 7.5D?
My new Bounty Hunters were delivered today. Just a few days over a month since I placed the order. Here's a few pics I took .
I have a question on how you guys put on and take off these boots. I have a high instep/arch and find that my foot does not want to just slide in to these boots. I end up using a shoe horn and still it is a tight fit. Once on, they feel like slippers, very comfy. Getting them off is always quite a pull also. I have a few pairs of boots that offer a larger opening and I can slip right in to and out of them. Just wondering if this is a White's boot thing and it will get better with time or maybe something on the build needs to be tweaked.
I plan to wear them for work , as a project manager, so part time construction site, part time office. I agree on he stitched areas. I ordered standard trim. In hind site , I should have ordered close trim. My bad, as this is my first pair of White's boots. I need to see some pics of Bounty Hunter boots so I can see the quality of the stitching. Since I only have this pair, I have nothing to compare them to.
