    Lol, why so sad? I've had to exercise a lot of restraint not to do the same.

    Only 3? That's not that bad. I bought 11 pairs of shoes in December 2014. 5 of which were MTOs, 7 G&Gs...

    Yup I have issues.

    Wow, don't remember the 888 being so chiseled. Not a huge EG fan, mostly due to fit, but these are gorgeous.

    @Leaves, I realized we never discussed eyelets - any chance we can do either matching or antiqued brass eyelets? Hidden on suede always look off somehow to me. Anyone else?

    I have no preference, you guys decide. Normally I'd make it up without though.

    @Ironist, @etostano, @NAMOR, @RogerP, preference to go with matching exposed eyelets or antiqued brass for a bit of contrast?

    I just ordered and would prefer Antique brass but will go with what the majority decides

    This. Its a Balmoral boot. More formal and blind eyelets make more sense. I think the contrast stitching already draws enough attention. Wouldn't really want more detail on it.
