I think it has more to do with how the hides accept the dye.

Solid guys those 10 D ers however clearly the 8 D crowd is the superior size smile.gif

I'd be surprised if horses all of the sudden started producing shells that consistently took the tanning differently. Batch to batch variance? Sure, weather explains that. Systematic years long differences? That's tanning. It could be intentional, or it could be due to the ever increasing list of chemicals on the EPA banned list.

Cloudy Saturday Tankers. Make me kind of sad these 8D fit well, the 8D Barrie competition for boots is tough. Thankfully I am a 7.5D in Barrie shoes so it splits the field for me a bit. Indoor and outdoor pics today.

Now this isnt color 2's or anything but just last night I lost out on a shirt I was leading for a while becuase the auction ended at 3am my time. I cant stay up till 3am just for a shirt, so I input what I thought would win it for me. I lost by 50 cents.

You need a snipe service.

The 2014 shade was very close, if not exactly the same as the new captoe boot when it was brand new.

Agreed! smile.gif
Loved your WTB rainbow yesterday. The patina on the cigars was the best of the bunch IMO.

Haha maybe. I am an inbetweener so sizing gets tricky. I am for sure a thin dress sock 7.5D in Barrie shoes and it looks like 8D in Barrie boots. I have yet to try the Plaza or Grant but I am almost thinking maybe 8D in Plaza and 8E in Grant, have not had the chance to try anything on those lasts yet.

I've had two pairs of cigar LWBs from AoC that I bought in 2013 and 2014 (ugh, stupid sizing issues).  They were both absolutely beautiful, although the pair I bought in '13 was just incredible, even under non-natural light.  Some indoor, nighttime photos are here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/370231/sold-alden-cigar-lwbs-10d-barrie/0_100#post_6785235
