    Beautiful.

    I have a pair of the oxfords (in distressed rough-out) coming my way in the next couple of weeks. Can't wait.

    Quick question-- does the sole on these wear down fairly quickly?

    Just curious, any thoughts (or pics) from you guys on comparing Burgundy CXL to Brown CXL (and maybe throwing in Classic Brown or Brown Horsehide)? I've seen several pics, but colors and textures often appear hard to capture and differ quite a bit in various pics. Any preferences?

    If you just want to see what the leather looks like, Rancourt & Co's website has lots of pictures of #8 CXL and brown CXL

    thanks. I plan on buying the hathorn rainier oxfords and I like the look of that leather. Wish there were more sole options but the wedge cream will have to do

    ^those look nice^

    Lots of good info on this thread. I found out I could order the oxfords from the Bakers Shoe web site, which I just did. It doesn't tell you how long but I'm in no hurry. Will post pics when they arrive. Thanks for all the info.

    Man I'm going crazy waiting for mine. It's been 15 weeks now. I was told 10-12 weeks. I calle 2 weeks ago and was told 2 more weeks. And still nothing. I didn't get anything exotic. Just black roughout with tan bull upper bounty hunter. Is everybody who placed an ordered back in November still waiting like I am?

    My order from October took about 15 weeks. Something totally slammed them in addition to the usual Holiday vacations, but I'm not sure what.

    Bingham, can you share the exact way you ordered the sole, midsole and heel on this boot? It's exactly what I want on my first pair.

    Awesome all-around build man.

    I am still interested in hearing people's opinions on Burgundy CXL vs Brown CXL vs Natural CXL, but here's another question as I work out my specs:

    Can those of you who have worn both the 55 (Semi-dress) Last and the 461 (sprung toe) Last comment on how they compare with regard to arch and foot support? I want the support, but I also like the sprung toe look, so want to make sure I would get the former with the latter.

    Thanks.
