    That's great news. It sounded like you were bailing because the numbering was a dealbreaker.

    Good luck with this MTO guys. If it works out, I'd love to do a Tetbury mto in Navy calf or Cordovan.

    Your sizings certainly seems correct (same as me although several sizes smaller). Payment is in full at time of order.

    I am stoked for this.

    I have wanted a pair of Whiskey Cordovan boots for a long time. I think that this may be my only shot at getting some.

    ^ whiskey shell is pretty awesome color. It was a little light for my taste at first buy it darkened nicely. I also recently purchased a rider whiskey captoe boot. The shell was a little dry out of the box so I used that opportunity to apply dark brown saphir cordovan creme and I think I prefer it now. The rider whiskey now resemble the C&J whiskey which has a darker, redder hue

    ^ Very nice dude. I'm hoping the C&J whiskey isn't too light. If it is I'm glad to know that dark cordovan creme does such a nice job.

    We all know how well Alden shell is smooth and supple out of the box. C&J sometimes gets a bad rap for having dry shell but in the case of whiskey it wasnt really a problem. And if it is dry, it gives you the opportunity to create a darker color.

    Does anyone know if the factory has accepted/approved the order? Or has anyone heard from Lauren as to the status? I know my CC has not been charged yet.

    Last I heard from Lauren was that she would charge our cards early this coming week. She was waiting to hear back from a couple of people before she submitted the final order.

    Yeah, I think she is finishing up collecting the last few people's CC info, including mine. I know she said she would call me Monday so I can give her my info.

    Excellent boot I went to try this boot in their Jermyn street shop but they did not have my size , good choice with the Ridgway sole which was my only concern at that time as the boot came on a double leather sole!

    Please do post pictures once they arrive.
