    I would be more interested in the Skye2 than the Lindrick. I would be in for some type of grain leather.

    I am with you. I dress on the more casual side and although I love shell I get more use out of my CXL and suede

    I don't need shell. I like the rough out but am not looking for a wingtip boot as I have a couple.

    That's what I was thinking ;-) Question is, speedhooks or no speedhooks?

    These are awesome. Would a skye look good do y'all think in this?

    I'd be in for either, but I would lean towards a Skye2. Except if we could do a standard lindrick in brown cordovan then I'd jump on that (the largest Ralph Lauren size is 13, which pinches my toes too much). I'd be up for some type of grain leather too. Just out of curiosity, rough-out is a type of grain leather, right?

    Sounds nice, although I want to see what their dark brown scotch grain would look like. Also I need to look into the coniston last and what it looks like.

    At this point, I've got myself confused over what I would want in the next mto. I think I'm going to wait till the whiskey Harlechs arrive and then take a step back and look at my collection and take stock. It's easy to get excited about another mto and lose sight over how much wear the boots would get.

    In all honesty, I've found myself in a position where I think I have too many boots. I sometimes find myself picking a pair of boots to wear in the morning not because I really want to wear those but because I feel in a way guilty that I own them and haven't worn them in a while. Then the boots I really like don't get enough wear (and look too new and pristine).

    I know I can get rid of some of the earlier boots I bought before I became a bit more discerning. I'm not one who's sold boots often so it's a chore for me to go through the process, although the one pair I did sell (a pair of 403 Indys on SF) went quite smoothly.
