Alden DC has a cigar lwb list, but it's loaded. I'm 6th or 7th for 10D and they're only gonna be fulfilling 3 of those any time soon.

There are four stores running LWBs right now. Shouldn't be impossible to find them.

The substrate dyes, the leather, and the minute differences in the process. It's like winemaking. The product will be similar, but never identical.

Now that's a fine shade of Cigar!

I think there was a batch of very dark cigar that went towards CT boots. But the PTBs (see my sig) and the LWBs I've seen recently weren't super dark.
