    I vote to do the Austerity Brogue Boot as a Balmoral and wait for an Early Spring delivery. Better to wait and truly get something special.

    Mike,
    I saw the pictures of the Ruby loafer you posted before, but couldn't get a good feel on whether the color would be formal enough to wear with a navy or grey suit? Or would you say this is something that is more casually geared. Just trying to get a better sense of the color(because lighting can change perception so much)

    Considering the whole cut and wondering about sizing. 10UK Inca was too small for me all around. 10.5UK Forest is a little too narrow. 11UK Forest is comfortable in the width, but longer than necessary. Therefore, ordered a balmoral boot in Forest 10.5UK wide, but won't be able to see how that fits before making a decision on the Inca whole cut.

    Taking into consideration that Inca comes in only the standard width, my feel is that I should go for 11UK to get the width even if the length isn't ideal. I bet 10.5UK is going to be tight.

    Does this sound right?

    Anyone have a pic of the Caramel whole cut? Trying to get an idea of whether Caramel is a darker or lighter shade of brown?

    After thinking about it for a couple of days, doing the austerity brogue boot would be better as a bal and, therefore, worth waiting for, even if it means not having it for this winter. :slayer:

    Yeah I think most of us agree, we'll wait for spring on those to get exactly what we want.

    I agree

    Absolutely. I could order a dozen different blucher boots and have them here by the weekend. And while I love my blucher boots, the idea of an MTO (to me...) is to get something special, somewhat unavailable, etc.

    LOL Touché good sir!

    Although that would end up being twice as expensive and take all the fun out of doing an MTO project!
