    dont like the medallion and it'd look better double to single sole. the sole looks too thin.

    Guilty on that count - I have the saddle shell Sinclair boots and the Lindrick. To be honest, I find the finishing very similar in terms of quality and fit - I can wear both of them comfortably the whole day. My foot is more 'blunt' at the toes rather than slanted and the width borders on the wide side of medium if that makes sense.

    I find the colour of the Lindrick to be more versatile for the clothes I own and I can see myself using it more than the Sinclair - however a Sinclair in cognac shell would give the Lindrick a run for its money in that respect.

    One thing I do like about the Lindrick is the pull tabs - they don't really catch on my trouser legs and I've also been tucking them away between my ankle and the boot. I just find them very useful in getting the boots on..

    Gave Betty the go-ahead to ship them.

    This is going to be so very painful....and the stress of waiting for the inevitable! :(

    forest is a bit wider than robert. here's an old pic i had on my phone:

    [​IMG]

    the left is robert and the right is forest.

    i prefer the robert last as it fits snug, but not tight. the forest (in the same size) feels looser even if i pull the places pretty tight. i might be able to go a half size down in the forest, but it would be harder to find since i wear UK7. i'll try to take a better comparison pic tomorrow morning.

    yup, good eye. saddle doesn't actually look that orange...it's more like a light caramel. if i have some time, i'll take more comparison pics with different lighting.
