    I think these will look pretty bad ass :) Grats.
    I also did an EB MTO using the blue vitello. Figured it was time to get me a pair of blue shoes.

    FYI, the last photo is not bracken. It is a set Crispin model and thinking back that might be closer to dark brown then bracken.

    Thanks for the info. I thought it looked a little different than the swatch. It was the first pic I found so in my excitement I didn't check too hard before posting.

    After getting the runaround yesterday and over the phone today, I decide to try my local postoffice again after work. Success:

    Some EG goodness, finally:

    They look great, even if the Doak is the new darker variation (a bit darker than my Hoves really).

    Thanks to Skoak for the great service, I'll be placing my next EG order soon... :slayer:

    Congrats on the shoes (and the success with the PO)
    Headed to your part of the world tomorrow for a little birthday trip, BTW. Hope the nice weather holds.

    Bad ass!

    Is that model 3540? The same as the black/grey suede bal boot?

    I'm digging blue, but I can't wear it casually (with denim). I think something like Etrusco or Aubergine is my best bet.

    Love that MTO. Can't wait for pics.

    @JubeiSpiegel -

    Nice new shoes. I like the "new" dark oak! I think EG strives to be more consistent with this key color. Enjoy the double monks.
    Cheers.

    Consistency is good.


    But the lighter Doak is much better than the darker Doak.
