I feel like the quality of Cigar shell this past year or so was higher than normal, albeit dark in shade, causing a ton of bloom.

Yup, mine came from the same batch. I agree about the quality of the cigar, it's through the roof. As I was cleaning them today I noticed a very subtle and slight color variation developing on the vamp above the Captoe. Man it looks sweet.

All of the 2015 Cigar is blooming a ton. I think its just a "feature" of the latest batch of Shells that Alden received from Horween. I assume its a good thing that they are highly nourished.

speaking of newer cigar blooming

 

 

 

one down, one to go

So glad the Epaulet pre-order is closing tonight.  I don't need the temptation of those dark brown CXL longwings haunting me...  (and they're close enough to my new AE McTavishes in Cognac that I really can't justify them.  I repeat:  I really can't justify them.)

 

The good news is my calf WT boots that arrived with a bit of hurt are on their way back from Alden via AoM, so I'll be breaking them in soon.

I was wondering if anyone has sent a Whiskey Handswen model back to Alden for recrafting? Did they dye the contrast stitching with a redye as they did with my #8 LHS's. Kinda ruined the 8 year patina.

Those look great Mac - Indy has so many different dimensions depending on material/color/etc.

Haha, guns are my other biggest hobby. I already had to reinforce the doors because @BenLeaman is the same size!
