    Edit - Definitely a strong preference for all eyelets! Speedhooks destroy my pants and aren't secure.

    Ah good catch. Another variable I forgot about. Sure, please go ahead and specify a heel. I've edited my post to specify one as such. If anything this will show Alden DC that we mean business [​IMG]

    Great thread, sorry for the late add. I'm in on anything in a #4. That said, my preference:

    Toe: wingtip

    Welt: 360 welt

    Sole: Double waterlock or commando

    antique edge trim

    Dammit! I forgot about trim as well. *sigh* please add trim to your posts as well. Sorry everybody, there is a lot to go over and the lady is getting mad that Im not watching Alien 3 with her.... Though I dont imagine anyone is going to say anything other than antique trim. It just looks oh so nice.

    Very interested in #4 with medallion cap on Grant, all eyelets, and any sole but commando. Prefer storm welt. I defer to wiser heads on edge color.

    Alright everyone, I figure since there is already so much input on our primary makeup that I am going to post the vote now. Fill out the poll with your preferred choices and obviously don't select conflicting points. (No cap toe wing tip boots on a commando double waterlock sole with antique dark trim) [​IMG]

    Feel free to fill out the poll whenever, just know that I will be closing the poll this Sunday. And I am not sure if this poll can recognize a person twice but please only vote once. But if it does we have to rely on the honor system.

    Again, I really appreciate everyone's input.

    EDIT: Ah, I realize I should clarify something before this gets too far. If you come to a point where you don't mind either way, for example those of you who do not care if it is a wing tip or a cap toe, then go ahead and vote for both. If you have instead voted in a way where you left a category blank due to not minding the outcome of a selection, please PM me so I can rectify the tally. Thanks guys.
