    The Mahogany Armfields are very, very nice. And at a very attractive price. Trying to convince myself that I do need them, and not only want them.

    Whoever picked up the Wilson in black, size uk11.5, got a steal.

    I'm intrigued by the saphir insoles. Anyone have experience with them? Quality, sizing, thickness?

    The Lombard boots looke great as well and pretty good price. Curious if AfPOS will run a discount code like they did during the spring/summer sale

    Awesome, thanks. I wish I had seen them earlier. Would have purchased a couple to include in the miller boot shipment

    Sounds good to me. Let's start sooner than later. I am eager for new styles or higher grade ventures.

    Some nice Chelsea style boots like the AS Alex or Jodhpur boots. I am keen on unusual colors like navy, dark green or dark cherry. Too many shades of brown are around everywhere currently (Brown is the new Black) and this is a chance to get something out of the ordinary, yet a classic essential.

    AS Alex in any of these colours would look great - perhaps calf vamp and quarter with same colour pin grain strap would look stunning!

    Alex in dark grey, oxblood, or cherry peaks my interest. I think the pin grain strap is an excellent idea!

    Dark grey (similar to EG's antique slate):

    I like navy but I am partial to grey because it I find it more versatile. I think the Alex is an excellent boot!

    Start it up. I am game for any combination. It seems we peaked the intrest of few and few more may join up. I think it is good if we can start early and have something going for early delivery late spring or early summer.

    Ok - what last would you like - if we went with either 48 or 53 you can have the three width fittings E, F & G or if you want 724 they come in E or F?

    I like the 53 last in F width. I do not have any shoes in 724 last, but I am willing to consider the 724 last in E width. Any color as long as we stay away from black and brown.

    After having worn the Miller a few times, I too am a fan of the 724.
