    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I made that photo after I proposed that makeup. I know what they look like.

    I was just wondering if perhaps there was an eyelet maybe on the other side of the leather, maybe one sandwiched inbetween the stitched leather to give the soft calf some support against the pulling of laces.

    Originally, Viberg did not do eyelets on the inside for blind eyelets, but they've improved the process and now they insert eyelets on the inside. You can see the eyelet on the inside in this pic:

    Anyone know who BCC ships with? I got a tracking number (WHOOT!) but I don't know where to cut and paste it.

    Where are you located and what does the tracking number look like? If you're in the Canada and it's numeric, then Canada Post, if it looks like CX ### ### ### CA, then it's Canada Post, but you can also track through USPS.

    Wow, those smoke grey kudu boots are off the chain, dawg! I will likely participate in the next run. All you lucky owners, please post IRL pics.

    Yeah, I know, but I had way too many purchases going on at the time. Things are hopefully slowing down now so I can be more selective. But I really need to stick to my goal, which is --- one pair in, one pair out. As it is, my boots will never look worn in, no patina, etc. Some boots just need to be worn hard, kind of like how I did with those brown waxed flesh GMTOs that you were on as well. I'm looking forward to your pics!

    For now, get in on the natural cxl boots we will be doing, or the tan Bison scout boot on a mini ripe sole that I designed. Or the Cabourn tribute boot.

    Guidi calf boots arrived from BBC this morning.

    [​IMG]


    Some observations:
    - The calf leather seems quite a bit darker than the first run that BBC did, with more gloss and less matte-like.
    - The box doesn't say "brown Guidi calf" as in the last run; now shows "olive calf". Wonder if it's not Guidi anymore?
    - The calf has a very soft and supple hand. Very, very nice. I predict they will break in very nicely and quickly.
    - At first glance, it might resemble natural CXL that's got some patina on it. But this leather has got some depth and complexity to it that's very attractive.
    - I don't think these boots are for those that are crease-phobic, as there's much more grain and creasing to this leather. My limited experience is that I've seen this more often in some Italian leathers. However, the matte black Guidi calf boots I got recently are hardly wrinkling at all after about 10 wears.
    - The discussion about eyelets recently was interesting. These boots have 10 eyelets but they are NOT reinforced. I.e., there are no blind eyelets. Somewhat disappointed but not terribly concerned at the moment. The 8-eyelet matte black boots ARE reinforced with blind eyelets.

    Experimented with two types of lacing. The bar lacing really doesn't work with these boots.

    I really like the looks of the 10 eyelets but it sure makes lacing up the boots more of a pain.

    Wow, these are just too nice. What does Viberg call that color?
