Yes, it very much is Alden world problems.  When I first got hooked I was lusting over the Leffot 8 tanker & color 8 / antique edges was somewhat rare, but lately it seems like all color 8 makeups are with antique edging.  I guess we just want what we can't have :)

 

BTW, it's more like 36-48 months for those LS Pitt boots

Now what retailer is going to be my hero this year and do the plaza last, color 8, black edge, straight tip boot, all eyelets....?

Black is best!!

Seriously I think the dark upper plus light welt is some kind of crazy Viberg inspired fad that will eventually pass. It's kind of at critical mass now. I think if color 8 weren't so dark these days it would look a little better. I mean, they still look awesome, but maybe a bit too much contrast for my taste, especially on dressier boots.

So how do you gents feel about the newer crop of (very dark) cigar with antique edging? I can't imagine cigar with black edges.
