It was a group consensus, my vote was flat welt & close heel, but I'm sure the boot will be great and I'm still purchasing it.

I will call Kathy on Monday.

You are correct on all accounts, sir. Tassels in HK did a similar boot in black shell & ultimately the cigar boot was swiped from a fellow SF'er, Thor.

Agreed. Running an Alden MTO and getting a group consensus is a tough thing to do, but I'd do it again. I really think the Thor boot went through that way was because everyone could see the Thor boot as a finished product, and not a concept.
I am coming around on the closed heel as well.

Correct, and there is always time.
