I have the semi-dress in brown horsehide and the MP in black chromexcel. You can't go wrong with either. But my semi-dress horsehides are the most comfortable things I have ever put on my feet that wasn't a sneaker. The only thing I would be aware of is that the brown horsehide is significantly darker than the pictures on the Baker's website. I was initially disappointed but the color has grown on me and now they are hands down my favorites. The MPs are comfortable and beautiful but every time I have a choice I pick the horsehides. The pics are from when they were both new. If you can swing the price for the horsehide, it's worth it IMHO.Thinking about making an order for MPs in horsehide. I've generally been happy with Chromexcel in the past, but I'd hate to order custom boots, wait a few months, and then find out I'd lost the lottery. The White's horsehide seems to offer a similar look, but with finer creasing and less risk of unsightly break. Can anyone confirm this, or talk to me about the general characteristics of the horsehide? Is there anything else I should be aware of concerning the White's horsehide? I know some boots in different leathers can fit slightly differently, some are warmer/cooler, for example.
