Caramel looks pretty interesting/yummy.

i think it's because ghillies and thistles are both associated with things scottish. i believe i've heard that broguing pattern referred to as a thistle pattern.
My new Lindricks are supposed to be for Christmas from my wife ... but I just can't keep from trying them on a wearing them around the house at cocktail hour. Wow, what a smoking boot. I can see these being hard to pry off my feet. Can't wait to get some milage on these babies. Off to the wrapping table ... maybe another couple days ha!
I started noticing from what it looks like is leather cracking on my Marlow. I sent them to RL store and per their assessment, it is due to wear and tear and also noted that I should have noticed the imperfection upon receiving the item which was purchased April this year, which I respectfully disagree. I mean how can I possibly detect this without wearing them. In my opinion, it is a defective product/leather. Obviously my hope was a replacement which they will not do. But they offered to send the pair to Rago Brothers in NJ (which I believe is a reputable co) RL will cover any repair cost but my argument is that you cannot repair cracked leather as it will get worse.
I'm trying to decide if I should take the offer and send them for repair or take a principled position that is is defective product and have them ship the pair back to me. Am I right or just out of luck and stuck with a defective product? I guess another excuse to buy a second pair.
