    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.
