I have both GYW and Stitchdown in shell in the same size. the GYW is roomier all around for me. 

It may be that they are trying to not pull the shell as much, because they had been having failures.

Last time it was not limited on size. Simply buy a slot and say what size you want.

That's helpful/ and it makes sense. So it will be a free for all no matter what! I wonder if this will be one of those browser-freezing frenzies...

I think they will go very fast, but at $1,100 a pair it adds a minute or 2!

I saw a five year old pair of reverse shell boots today. I think they were Julian Boots, but not the Bowery. Unstructured plain toe.
I was told they started out reverse side green with black shell inside. They looked great with all that wear. The reverse side lost all the green color, and had the classic shell cordovan rolls, but was very "hairy", thick texture like nubuck but not as dense. The black shell on the inside actually wore down to brown and lite brown. The Horween stamp was still visible on the reverse shell. Wear those reverse shell hard, you're gonna love them.

Or one could always just wait for the inevitable Truman Boots copy in a few months. I hear they're coming out with a new last, too, the 3020.

I hope so...at least it won't be dopey blind eyelets... smile.gif

At the moment I consider my Mohagany shells one of my least favorite Vibergs. There is something to the astetics that are a bit off to me. Not the quality, constructions or anything like that.

Hoping over time with more wear my opinion will change.

I intend to wear these things hard so I'm not as worried about the appearance as much as the quality. I understand imperfections are inherent and to be expected, but I am wondering if this is acceptable out of the box? I am new to this game so any advice is appreciated. Cheers!

Since that looks vastly different than their photos online, I'd personally return. If you're asking, you probably aren't thrilled. The photos online make it look similar to CXL rather than the aforementioned scrotum.

I found the 2030 Mahogany shell to fit very similarly to the majority of the other 2030 boots I had tried. They were a tad more loose overall, but not in the toe box. The shell they used was very dry and stiff to boot.

Nah, it will be better. It will be stitchdown. ;)
