Noted the charred forest too. Sounds like something a hobbit would have to traverse in a time of trouble. Having a hard time seeing the green or gold in them in the photo.
Might just go with the purple, but will wait to get my factory finds back from the tailor this weekend and assess my wool trouser situation visually.
Of course, if I were able to order a pair of those Bedford cords that are coming and the right size purple shetland is still available, I'd hate for the Rivets to be lonely in transit.
