    To clarify, I meant 3 to 4 weeks for Baker’s to call about fitting.
    Kyle did apologize, saying they were busy.

    I was looking for swing last advice.

    Thanks for the clarification. I wasn’t sure.

    Also, Kyle was on the road all last week according to his Instagram. He’s the only one who does the sizing. Give em’ a ring today & leave a message for him or send him an email - he works from home sometimes so you might get a response pretty quickly. Or if you’re one of the kool kids just text him:cool2:

    No kidding... I myself am a small town country lawyer, I like to think I am in the mold of Atticus Finch, but in reality, it is more like My Cousin Vinny!

    Are you an attorney? If so congrats on passing the bar... where I practice the dress code is a little more relaxed, plus I am a partner so I can pretty much do what I want, including having a beard... I have worn my White's (brown dress, cap toe) to court on multiple occasions... heck, compared to the LL Bean boots some are sporting they look downright cosmopolitan! Welcome to the bar!

    Are you referring to the Big Four in Japan? I'm reminded of a story in the Seattle Times from the late '80s, in which it was reported that the building where I worked as a lawyer in private practice housed more lawyers than the total number of practicing attorneys in Japan. Sorry, I digress.

    I now serve as general counsel for a non-profit filled with employees with tattoos, piercings and hair colors not found in nature. Needless to say, my White's work just fine.

    After a few weeks of work. The horsehide is incredible. The fit is spot on from Bakers. Couldn’t ask for a better pair of work boots.

    Those boots look great @linafelt what leather are they? I like the tea core coming out of the tongue.

    Thanks. Just black CXL. I assume the tongue is the same, though it’s maybe split as it seems thinner.

    I think it depends on the angle. I found White's barrie looks sleeker on the side while 2030 looks sleeker from the top.
