    I am thinking the same thing but Zug leather is better for the inclement weather. It would be the best if you could check out the colors in person. I would do it but I have not planned any trips to NY anytime soon.

    Guess I'll go check out the leathers then. Probably swing by C&J NY on Monday.

    What would be different from the Coniston? Sole and last?

    Yes and all eyelets, and I think the Coniston is available in tan grain only.

    IMO other than the leather used on the SNOWDON boot the best option for inclement weather is their rough-out suede.

    I have this material on their EXMOOR model and it is impenetrable and the more messed up it gets from bad weather the better it looks.

    Above: you can see what the rough-out looks like

    What about an ISLAY with the toe and heel in rough-out sude and the upper in dark brown scotch grain. with storm welt and dainite.

    I don't know the lasts off the top of my head, but making this boot out of the Harlech sounds like we'd be taking a sleek boot and making the bottom clunky. I may be more interested in a Coniston MTO. All eyelets and different color.

    Possibly... Hell, I'm just throwing ideas out there :)

    It is offered stateside in the NYC store.

    I also do not need a blue boot as I just ordered a Tetbury MTO in Navy Grain.

    Gentlemen, congratulations to all of the new whiskey Harlech owners. Wear them always in the best of health. Now to those sorry sons of beeches who like myself dearly regret not getting in on this, kudos to hoit, we should seriously consider the available options for a second group MTO and strike while the iron is hot so to speak. The most pertinent questions to ask ourselves are is the MTO going to be a shoe or boot, what leather will it be made from, what color of leather are we ordering, and which Crockett and Jones last will the "dream shoe" be made on. Personally I'm a huge fan of Horween shell cordovan and I like deep browns that at least look rich. While boots are really cool, maybe we can think outside of the box a little on this one. For example, maybe a 5 eyelet C&J "hand-grade" level derby with a slightly beveled waist, a wee bit o' brouging, and a cool medallion on the toe box. Something unique and a bit different would be nice. You know, like my gf, just a little crazy.
