    Sounds like you like the design of the Thorpe better but like the rosewood cc color. Getting either seems like it would be a compromise. I'm in the same boat. However Im Probably getting the Thorpe in arran grain and getting a rosewood cc galway mto once I figure out the specs I want.

    That's strange.

    I guess the pair I got in the mail today couldn't have been yours then, Huh.[​IMG]


    Well I guess I'll just be forced to keep them then.[​IMG]

    It's a bit more snug than the 82 on me, but the 888 really is a nice looking Last.

    I don't know, the stitching and maybe it's the shape or Last that just appeals to me somehow.
    One day I like the Nevis in Rosewood CC and the next it's the Thorpe. I've got a feeling I'll figure it out one of these days though. I starting to really crave a split toe boot. Whatever I decide I don't tend to have too many regrets later which is good.

    The Halifax doesn't really do it for me, but I can see why it may appeal to others.

    After checking them out, the only question I have:




    Why Oh why did I wait so long?

    I love the EG dip on the side, but there's always room for a little Thorpe / Lindrick swoop to mix things up.

    Inverness has landed here today too. The 888 last is perfect for me. Beautiful shoes.
