+ 1 Gazillion!!

They think by posting cryptic posts that they aren't revealing anything.

C'mon man. You knew that I was joking, right? You weren't even the first to spill it.

Sorry. We're still cool, right?

In that spirit: Anyone who would like to dispose of their Harlechs, please PM me :)

I would be interested in either the one with just captoe brogues or the one with additional brogues.




Thank you for your help.

Those are from Alden DC.

I passed on the WTBoots. I saw the email and replied within 2 mins. Got a call but changed my mind. Whiskey, when done right, can look okay, but the whiskey I've been seeing lately would have to be my least favorite shell color. Maybe I'll regret this later? 

post #94134 of 122416

Just to revisit my question since I'm afraid my question got buried with all the waiting list talk. 

 

 

Which is more roomy? 8.5D barrie or 9D Hampton?

 

I know barrie heads usually go half a size up to fit the hampton last. 

 

Thanks.

I'm kind of hoping it comes out like the Whiskey we have been seeing lately, which is darker. I'm sure you'll get another shot at it at some point via another retailer.

I mean, the retailer specifically said don't post it here or tell friends and that they'll only sell to people already on the list anyway.

I feel like that probably should have been respected. They don't want to get inundated with calls and emails. The people not on the list will get a stab at it if they add themselves to the next list.

Pretty simple. Nothing secretive. Probably should have not even brought it up.

I have a Ravello WT boot that I'm hoping comes in looking like my latest Whiskey and not Brownvello (TM @mdubs). That's why I passed on Whiskey WT today, that and Commando/Antique I feel like should be separated. I like Antique with Double Waterlock. Just personal preference. Commando sole is awesome on my Color 8 CT boots.

Congrats to those who got in on the Whiskey boot today. It's going to be a beautiful boot, regardless of dark or light shade.

Awesome boots, gentlemen! That Ravello is beautiful. The commando on that last and deep color 8 is spot on, Mike!
