    Unfortunately one of those where going to get a Mahogany CC version if I couldn't get enough Rosewood CC people, so at best we now have 5 again.

    At the time this actually worked in my favor, because gave me the incentive to fill in and upgrade a number of the staples. A Chelsea in Doak, Chelsea in Black, and the Inverness in Antique Burgundy.

    In time maybe, however I think at least a few of these may not make the cut in the long run.
    Ah yes, the Brandy Willow is the one I couldn't come up with.

    This should make a great collection with enough variety to justify those three.

    Why do we have more than 5 pairs of shoes? Argh! At least the pair I bought earlier today were running shoes... sadly those also add up yearly...

    And I thought I had found something less expensive than watches. LOL

    Dark (/Light) Oak Galway. When light hits the midsection, it could pass for pine, but the darker suede and burnishing contrast works well with it. Compared against the previous shot of the dark DOAK Shannon (which is also perfect for that model). With all the differences, just more reason to keep buying dark oak.

    Of the two the Doak and suede get my vote. Every time I see them I can't help but wanting to get a pair.

    I thought we agreed to postpone those (maybe in Acorn/Burned Pine and on the 888) until January :devil:

    Part of me likes the Doak variance and part of me finds it annoying. I have numerous Doak models and the difference in shade can be striking.

    I'm trying to transfer my interest into socks... so much more cheaper. For running, I go through a pair of shoes every 3-4 months so I basically should enough to pay for 1 shoe every 12 months.

    It was SOOOO much better in college when I just had a bunch of shot glasses...

    SKM, It is true that I agreed to wait till the first part of next year. But I wanted to go with Chestnut and the Last was something I wanted to think about. At this point the 888 should be fine, however I am getting the Inverness on the 888 next week so I should have a better idea next week.

    I believe this is my last post:

    I don't know. I just heard about William Abraham socks.


    So it appears socks are a no win as well. LOL

    No problem, I was a bit worried I had actually pissed you off.[​IMG]

    Not the least my friend, I seriously doubt we could get a GMTO going anyway… But keep us updated on your thoughts on the Inverness :slayer:

    Good, and your probably right although it might be worth a shot.

    It's funny but I just finished reading a number of posts about the Inverness as I await mine to be delivered. I guess it should have been the other way around, but like I've stated it was a shoe I've been wanting for a while now and I already made up my mind that I wanted a pair. The one thing that surprised me most is the pinkish tone they seemed to have, I didn't expect that. But I guess a bit of black wax if I choose would darken them. The blind brogue is a term I wasn't familiar with either. I can't wait to get them in hand, or should I say on feet.
