    But I have the Galway that will be here in a couple of days, and a Falkirk due in February to hold me over.

    Have you checked the usps tracking site?


    Generally it's 8 days to the Midwest.


    This holiday season and potential for bad weather, maybe it might take a little longer.

    Wow, that is a coincidence. Galway in Rosewood CC and Falkirk in Edwardian for me.

    USPS tracking is useless, they'll update it AFTER delivery!

    I figured. Guess I'll sit tight and wait for it to show up, sounds like it won't be much longer

    I love these two! Who are they by and what are the model names if you know them?

    Hey guys. I just wanted to give you an update on some information that i got from Gabriel about the chukka boots that i was asking for all your opinions on.

    He said:

    Lama will absolutely develop a deeper patina over time but it will be harder to create a high shine compared to normal calf.
    Bevelled waist is not possible for a double leather soles, only Single.

    I guess that means that I'm going to get the single sole, because I am curious to try out a pair with a real bevelled sole like they do.

    So I getting the EB Chukka on the 804 last with chain novegese on a beveled single sole. I just need to decide which leather. I still am thinking about the baby lama between the cola and Reh (between cola and sahara) shades. See the earlier post if you want some good pictures of each detail. Any more opinions would be appreciated.

    Haha, Derwent in Olive is great, kinda want one but waiting on seeing how the green delapre makes up before next pair of EG. Do want a dover in rosewood first I think.

    The bonafe green lama looks great in swatch but not sure if it would be too bright in person. If I break my no shoe ban for 2015 by end of January (pretty likely) I will probably order something like this - green / loden suede and shark contrasting toe / heel / lacing. Like you said, sizing is a bit tricky, I am going to sell lama boots I think, too tight for me

    No, and hopefully I got them right. I certainly didn't mean to step on @Ironist toes. It's just that I've looked at those makeups more than a few times myself.
