Yeah, if they are a 3, that means they were the 2013 run of which I bought mine from.

You could try the BB version. The eyelets though, are matching color (not sure they "pop" enough for you Burzan, but I highly recommend)...
The color here looks a little darker. I need to brush them in a different direction for a lighter shade. I really like these and got them 30% of a few months ago.
Ooooooh yeah that is probably the solution, how do you feel about them being lined vs the regular version? I suppose it only makes the difference in having to wear a sock liner compared to going full sockless in the unlined version. Maybe slightly less slipper like hahapost #87273 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:13pmQuote:Originally Posted by ironclad
This morning after getting dressed, I looked for my Color 8 chukkas on commando. Couldn't find them. I shuffled around my 13 boxes of Aldens, double-checking all the numbers and labels. Still couldn't find them. Then I started to panic. I hastily began opening boxes to make sure that I hadn't put my Color 8 chukkas back into the wrong box. Beads of sweat started to build up on my forehead. Had I lost them? Did I leave them somewhere? Where were they?!
That's when I realized I don't even own Color 8 chukkas on commando...
Yup, that happened this morning. So I mixed things up a bit and went with these.
Funny, that's the exact opposite of what happened to a SF member last year, can't recall his name, who "forgot" that he had a pair of Whiskey SWBs hiding in the back of his closet.post #87274 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:19pmQuote:
Haha, I remember that one. Would much rather have been finding a pair of long-lost whiskey swb this morning.post #87275 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:22pmpost #87276 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:24pmpost #87277 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:31pmpost #87278 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:33pmpost #87279 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:37pmpost #87280 of 1224167/21/14 at 5:41pmQuote:Originally Posted by totalair1

My Whiskey PTB arrived from Alden SF and I did not bother trying them on. As you can see in the photo...there's a large rectangle area on the right right shoe that's darker than the rest of the shoe. As Ron White said: You can't fix stupid!
They are going back
