    That sounds really really nice, but Richard is likely going to be doing a cipresso cap toe boot MTO very soon, and I am on board with that…wish I could swing two MTO's at the same time!

    I believe it will be the same as the teak boot Mutumbo and I posted but in cipresso.

    My friend, it's the money that is the issue… of course I would be more than satisfied with multiple pairs!

    Richard told me he is going to send a newsletter out soon about it. At this point, I suspect it's going to be a cap toe on the 2298 last in cipresso, probably a darker welt on dainite. That's what I gather at this point. It should look very elegant!

    God those are beautiful...

    Differences:

    1. it's going to be a straight cap toe, "military" boot = no broguing on the boots

    2. might be a black lining

    3. possibly 9 "gun metal" speed hooks and eyelets….

    That's what I know so far…boy, still can get over how amazing that cipresso color is.

    Yes, those are incredible. I remember coming across that original run when they came out and being blown away. I still am.

    I want those boots.

    I asked Richard if he had still this model in stock. For those interested, he has 2 pairs left in UK 7.5
    Since Im UK8, he asked me to sound out the forum about potential other interested people for the exact re-run of the Eaton in Cipresso.

    Any takers?

    I could definitely be interested--this was on the 2298, right?
