    Hmmm, so I guess they don't necessarily make them in the order received. I ordered mine through Baker's on December 9th and am still waiting.

    [email protected] those look fantastic!! That brown horsehide is a gorgeous option. Can't wait to see what they look like in 6-12 months. They look like they'll age wonderfully. Great choice and thanks for sharing. It's the first pair of HH I've seen. Very impressive.

    Mine were put forth to the factory on Dec 12th and I received them on Jan 26th. I'd contact Bakers and get status.

    The original estimate was 5 to 7 weeks. I called at 7 and was told that orders around Christmas can add 2 to 3 more weeks = possibly 10 weeks total. I'm not mad, it's just hard to wait for something as exciting as White's SD.

    I requested the Vibram 705 split sole, and will post a pic for Aquaphor when they come in.

    As long as they're still aware of the order, I guess you're okay. If you haven't, try to get a hold of Kyle from Baker's. He was really helpful with my order.

    [email protected] thanks for the great pics - much appreciated. I'm thinking about taking a trip to Spokane in the next couple months, I will try to grab some pics of the store/factory (I think they do tours...) and share on here if it works out.

    gd1944: Great looking makeup. Congrats!

    herrmj: Glad you liked them. I really want to go on that White's tour too. I'm in Seattle as well but it's a long road trip. Please do share the photos.

    Got mine today! pretty much just like the retro/original brown dress single sole with the tan liner and close sole trim. Fits awesome! Went TTS BTW. :slayer:

    I bought my brother one too but unknown to me he had already ordered straight from white`s so he had to return it and have it exchanged for a filson 256 I think. Props to Kyle for the outstanding service.

    I`ll see how this one breaks in and I will put another order though the recent emergence of all these actual pics of other colors are making it hard :foo:
