The dr soles are a great addition. You have some chinos, a cut off sleeve blue sweatshirt and an A2 to match?

@Nkwkfld I've got some green fatigues and some blue chambray shirts to complete the boondocker look. No sweatshirts or A2 jackets (yet). Wouldn't mind an Aero, though...

@steelworker Thanks! The leather around the top is actually the lining. I think the color is called tobacco. For the midsole I had them do a waxed edge.

Yea, mine were ordered mid-march as well.  They already had the custom last on file with mine if that makes any difference.  It was tough to wait but realistically I wouldn't have worn them all that much in hot weather. 

It's worth remembering that any production business has options to deal with internal or external issues.  They could have hired new help and let them work on customer boots faster than normal, or even outsourced certain processes and just done finishing work in-house.  They focused on the highest margin orders, which may have resulted in pausing the MTO program.  I appreciate that they've decided to just hold to their business and quality, and let the lead times do what they need to do.

Been wearing my Mr. Lous during my bathroom remodel. Figured a few weeks of mortar splatter and they deserved some TLC
