Isn't the single MTO fee just $200? Seems rather reasonable seeing as they're already $1000 boots!
I've gone the single MTO route before and I would do it again if I really wanted something.
But evidently you don't get it, this time I got side tracked on my way to a shoe buying binge. LOL
Overall I think I made the right move, besides I already have more than just a few boots anyhow.
It is all part of the fun and I suppose it feels better when your follow SF members spend money with you.
Yeah, and I think it really worked out for the best.
Instead of just one pair of boots, I'm getting four pairs of shoes.
Man those boots can be dangerous!!! LOL
My understanding is that all country colors except black start very light tan color and than they are dyed to the desired color. Once I saw a pair of shoes at display in Saks Fifth Avenue store in NYC, I thought they were almond country calf but when I inspected them the sticker says rosewood country calf. They were an old model and they must have been on display under the artificial light for quiet some time that they begin to lose they reddish color.
I can see where they might lose some color. But that would be a awful drastic change wouldn't it? Besides wouldn't there be some areas of the shoe here the sun didn't shine on them so much and some of the original color would remain or it wouldn't be washed out so much?
Rosewood CC looks marvellous with age:
It's a color I hope to own one day, I've just not determined what it will be on yet. At one point it would have been the Nevis, and maybe that will be what I go with when my self imposed boot moratorium has been lifted. LOL
Yes down near the welt the original color was preserved but it was very light redish.
Wow, that sure seems like a lot of color to wash out. Too bad this kind of thing isn't as highly sought after as a washed out old Rolex Sub Bezel. I would be sitting all of my shoes and boots out in the sun. I'd be making tons of money. LOL
Yes indeed I am determine to own that color too for some reason I am determined to get Alderley in that color.
A rosewood Alderley would be pretty bad ass. My Alderley is most likely going to be walnut CC.
That would look incredible
We'll see it soon enough!
Rosewood CC is also on my wish list. Beautiful stuff...
