This noob is about to move forward on an MTO for a Long Branch that's hopefully going to fill in as the boot I've been looking for for the last two years. I'm glad I found you guys and this thread. Here's what I'm thinking of creating (and your feedback would be welcome, of course!): Long Branch boot Tan wax infused (aka Tan Dublin) leather buff split reverse welt (wheeled or not, I haven't decided) leather midsole vibram mini lug sole "natural" color stitching all around. and either a blue leather lining or a pale natural, depending on my whim when I order. I already spoke with Allison to confirm the sale price + $110 SMU fee which means I get my ideal boot at a great price. For reference, the leather is the same that is used on the lighter McTavish and Eagle County. I'm looking for that orangey hue with lots of dark/light variation that will become more pronounced with age. The overall look will be light like the EC boots but with the wings and broguing of the Long Branch. Thoughts?
