    Just found a week calculator; Put in the date and it tells you exactly how long it’s been!
    Right here: http://www.easysurf.cc/ndate2.htm

    Example: since Jul. 8th I have been waiting exactly 59 Days -- or -- 8 Weeks and 3 Days...

    I created an account on buildaboot the exact date I ordered the boots. The order was submitted to white's on the same date.

    Don't need a calculator for that since they count the days when it started.

    Just passed my first week. :) long way to go.

    Received my SDs in dark brown today.
    Forgot how much shorter the slant heel makes the boots!
    Like 12" with slant heel vs. 13" with block heel.

    It's a little-known secret that weeks and months have consistent numbers of days :deadhorse:

    I think your question was indirectly answered by CWMI, but yes, Baker's will send an email when the order ships with the tracking number. They don't send any other emails unless you contact them, and if you call White's or Baker's they will give you a standard generic answer of 8-10 weeks since the order was received, even if you call every week. I can't say how I know this. :laugh: Andy B.

    It's a good-looking pair of boots! Can't go wrong with Dress Brown SDs.

    I’m thinking about getting something like these brown smooth lace to toe smoke jumpers, but in 10’’. I think the bounty hunter may be a more fitted boot due to the SD last, but I’m not sure. What difference does the SD last make? I am also on the wall about getting a sole like in the picture or a composition half sole.
    I have some navy SDs coming, but I want a pair to use as my daily beater shoes.
    What you guys think?

    Brian--- boots looking nicely worn in!

    Thank you for the compliment @4characters

    I am wondering if anyone on here may have experience with cleaning natural cxl? I started cleaning my left boot as photographed above. I am using lexol leather cleaner and having great results so far. I paused while cleaning the left boot as I worried myself since I've never really done this and want to avoid creating damage. I still can find a lot of places on left boot (like on the outside toe near the sole) but stopped. let me know if I am looking good so far.
    Thanks,
    Brian

    After a 10 week wait my first custom ordered pair of White's arrived yesterday. My other pair where purchased from Ebay. These came out exactly like i wanted. The leather color, sole and everything are perfect. Sizing was very close, i normally wear a 10.5/11 and my first pair of White's are supposedly a 11D so i sent my tracings in and got a recommendation to go with a 10. I haven't worn a 10 since high school so i went with an 11D. In reality i could have went with a 10.5, these are a little roomy. Not too bad just a little bigger than my other pair. They measure about 1/4" larger. Had them on all day today, i really like the Commando mini lug sole vs the leather on my brown SD's. I will be boxing those up and sending them to Baker's to have those soles changed. The CXL does seem to scuff easy.
