Still OT but, I also love the Byron, which looks close to the same pattern as this pair of EliotsYou might remember that Rancourt is having a pre-sale on a couple of boots in various CXL and suede options. The camel suede Byron has my attention.

I just received a pair of Rancourt Byron boots today, in case you’re interested in seeing them “in the wild.”

I contacted Rancourt about making these in that spruce kudu that I had recently seen on another boot (non-Rancourt). They purchase kudu and checked into it for me. It turned out that due to minimum order quantities and shipping costs, they weren’t going to be able to order it for one pair. They didn’t give up so quickly though. They checked their inventory of leather samples and found a piece of spruce kudu that was large enough to make me a pair. Three weeks later and these are at my door.

These came with two sets of laces, two boot bags, a shoe horn, and a set of coasters (which I assume were cut from the little bit left from their sample).
How awesome is that?

Your spruce pair is an awesome color, nice sleuth work there!
I always love 'kick the door down and burn the barn' kind of first posts! Welcome!!
