The shoes are so nice I didn't even notice the khakis.

Latest Tanker from Alden NYC has arrived. Color is a bit darker than my previous Leffot few years ago but still nice under the sunlight and storm welt is just awesome!

Has anyone seen any info/commentary from Horween about why the shell colors are so much darker lately?

Again, Likely bc Alden is dying them this way. #8 shell from other makers looks about the same as it always has.

Yes. I could see storm welt would match nicer with denim and chino.

OK - The only other thing I'd seen is the LeatherSoul shell flip flops, which were supposed to be #8 and look more Cigar. 

 

If Alden is doing it on purpose, it seems like a mistake IMHO - the much darker shades would seem to show less of the character of the shell, and I'd wonder if the creasing will create significant contrast that is less desirable than the more subtle differences created before...   Just my $0.02

Heads up, Unionmade is doing 20% off gift cards... great way to pick up some Aldens at discount. I ASSUME there are no restrictions with them using gift cards for that brand, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

FWIW (maybe not much) my Leffot tankers from late 2013 looked to be pretty much the same color 8 shade when I got them as in pics I'm seeing now. They lightened up a bit but the amount of lighting plays a huge part in how dark or bright they appear.
