I'm really itching to buy the McGegors in chili. Waiting to go see the color in person, though. Is the new Bob's Chili the same color as the old chili?
Might also have to finally pick up some Strands in walnut.
I thought it was nice in the store and being that firsts are $249 and Seconds are $198 I would opt for the firsts this way you do not have to worry about size etc as returns would be free. Also considering they have no last info on the site.
Hmmm, interesting. Thanks for the input. I can't figure out why they made any changes to the Long Branch, it was great as is.
I've considered using some dark brown premium polish, but always hesitate. I worry it will result in some strange coloration or further dulling of the color for some reason.
If you get around to finding some pics, I'd love to see!
It's a darker, almost burnished chili. IMHO, it's the color to buy for the McGregor.
The last is the same as the Mojave boot which AE customer service reports is:
"made on our new 809-Last which is closer to the 1-Last (511) from the ball of the foot to the heel; however, it is very broad and rounded in the toe area." - link
