    Y'all are going to need a separate MTO thread at this rate!

    But in the meantime, if anyone is interested in getting a proper decent winter boot in the form of a Ridgeway-soled, shearling-lined Snowdon in rough-out and tobacco suede then drop me a line and I'll pick this up in private...

    +1 on a whiskey cordovan Harlech on double leather. Are there any preferences amongst the faithful for a pull strap or not?

    I'm thinking yes to pull strap and yes to speed hooks although I don't hugely care either way. I think a straight up Harlech (in whiskey) might be nice.

    hoit, I've been following the evolution of your thinking about the proposed make-up for this boot and I like where your going. I think a double leather sole just makes the lines of the boot look classier to me. A pull strap with speed hooks means easier on and off since in all likelihood it would be a boot I'd want to wear a lot. Does any of this make sense?

    I think I do spiff. I was originally thinking of something classic with the ability of being practical over the winter months (hence the Ridgeway). I am now rethinking things slightly - especially if whiskey is indeed available... I'm waiting to hear back on that.

    RL Marlow PTB cashmere otc and Bill's khakis. [​IMG] It's definitely raining spit today here in MPLS. OMG, water spots on my shell cordovan. Am I worried? No. Are my feet dry? Yes. Will the water spots brush out? Absolutely. No worries.

    Thank you very much chipshot. I just got home and performed a little Mac love on mine, and they look even better than when I put them on this morning. Go figure.[​IMG]

    Cross Post from BB Thread:

    Beautiful Peal & Co. C&Js i picked up today, the chestnut is fantastic, and i could have sworn the 341 last was more conservative than this but i am pleasantly surprised:

    I might delay the black captoe a bit, i have too many black shoes for Florida at the moment :)

    Hopefully i can contact C&J with some reference on fit now, so that they can give me an accurate conversion. I still want to pick up that dark brown Radstock...



    I haven't thought that far yet, more than likely with an odd jacket and trousers. Sacrilege, i know, but i don't actually get to wear suits very often here in Florida... :embar:

    Fwiw

    Fwiw I have mahogany cream with C&J chestnut. It looks like the closest color but always came out too orange for me. I've been alternating Hermes rouge and dark brown (with a bit of black on the toes) and have been quite pleased.

    I was going to get both the mahogany and the Hermes red cream, so I'll see how that goes, I like your black polish on the toe idea. Do you. Have any pics?
