    I just got a price update on the Polo Suede Harlech GMTO. Pretty much $400 + shipping. Not a bad price!
    • Price – Including VAT - £375 (~$481)
    • Price – Excluding VAT - £312.51 (~$400)
    • (Optional) Redenbach Soles - +£15 (~$20)

    I wanted to post photos of the whiskey lindrick but there is a 1mb file size limit! Not sure how to work around that yet.

    Either way my pair is outstanding!!!

    How'd the shade turn out compared to recent Whiskey runs?

    I'm not home for another 4 hours...

    I am good for this if you can get gmto going for polo suede only. Also what is normal leather sole do they use? Since you said redenbach sole is optional.

    Mine look more like the Warlow 2.0.....your pic looks more like the older whiskey that resembles natural shell more with orange undertones (might be the lighting).

    I have to say, I had completely forgotten we ordered Dainite soles on these. I would have preferred double leather but oh well. Great boots.

    Medallion on left boot is ever-so-slightly off center but I'm not picky.

    Beautiful boots!

    It could very well be the lighting. I would say these are consistent with what Alden whiskey and E.G. Bourbons has looked like recently.

    Beautiful boots everyone, these whiskey Lindricks came more b'ful than I thought. And the whiskey is definitely not the darker shade but definitely more like Alden whiskey.
    I recently got new Alden whiskey LHS and would say that color on the two is very similar.

    I realize the lighting in these pics is not great (and it's raining out so no good outdoor shots), but my Whiskey Lindricks looks essentially identical in shade/color to my darker/new Whiskey Marlows. Maybe the whiskey gods just don't like me. I'm 0/2 on getting the shade of whiskey I actually wanted.

    Edit: Sorry about the ridiculous order of posting the pictures. This new image uploading format is all kinds of idiotic.

    @BackInTheJox , difficult to get good idea of the shade in that pic accept that they look similar to your marlows. I don't have those marlows to compare, but I'd say that the whiskey color on my boots is the regular whiskey , any lighter and they'd look like Natural to me instead of whiskey ( not a shade I like)!
    Here is a comparison pic to my Alden whiskey LHS ( 2 months old) and Vass whiskey ( more than 1 year old). Vass has gotten slightly darker with regular use..

    That's fair and I see what you're saying. Pics of others' whiskey shell usually had a gold/orange hue (not as strongly as natural shell) that I like. Sort of like walnut calf. Mine certainly don't have this.

    However, ignoring that, I do like the C&J whiskey I've received. I have a pair of natural shell wingtip boots coming my way from another maker and I may or may not keep both, depending on the perceived difference. You and I differ in that I very much do like the appearance of natural shell.

    I did get a 9.5UK but unlikely that I am going to unload them.

    Sorry to harp on this, but does anyone have Lauren's email address? I want to inquire about a possible GMTO, and I've gotten nowhere with the general info email address. You can PM if you'd rather not share it publicly. Thanks!
