    Cannot wait to get mine. It's 12 degrees Fahrenheit today in Minneapolis, and there is snow on the ground. Brown grain ECs would turn my thoughts on this weather from [​IMG] to [​IMG].

    Maybe next time they can give priority to those in winter climates? Impractical, I'm sure, but tempting in a very selfish way.

    Did you go forward with the MTO?
    Has anyone contacted Allison for just a leather change?

    If one is going to have a topy or other sole protector installed, would the Independence or single JR soles be preferable in any way? Currently i have Independence soles specified in my trunk show MTO.

    Is that a double dainite sole I see? Looks awesome. I personally wouldn't apply anything before wearing them.

    First time poster here. Love the Brown & Navy EC's that you guys came up with. Not sure which one I would have gone for. Wish I wasn't so late to the party...

    If the Eagle County goes on sale during black Friday sale you can MTO them at a reasonable price.

    Wait, sale prices apply to MTOs? There's a whole world here I'm not understanding.

    If I weren't concerned with wear on the sole, I might just go with a single leather, because I like the thinner look better. Or you could just go straight for the v-tread or tempest sole.

    It's really up to AE's discretion. But yes, they have done it in the past. I got my Black Shell Harrison's and Cappuccino Shell Jeffersons at RDA prices. I believe that the recent GMTOs that took place during the RDA sale also got such discounts.
