Thanks, and yes a very nice deep and consistent color throughout.

Ravello PTBs from Alden SF. Socks courtesy of some of my younger relatives.

Frank, a dark welt there, right? I suppose it's common for Alden SF cigar and ravello styles?

on the subject of belts, i bought a couple of calf belts from user zissou that have served me well - one in oxblood which matches #8 well enough for me, and one in natural which pairs with natural cxl. it felt great to buy from a forum member. also, i don't like it when belts and shoes match exactly.

I received a pair of ravello longwings from SF with a dark brown welt - I love it

New acquisition, Frank?

 

Like the socks.  Did they tie-dye them themselves?

Yes, I dark welt, though dark brown as Alcibiades describes it. I myself also like it with the Ravello.

And these are relatively new. Been working on breaking them in. The socks are custom tie-dyed by the young relatives. It's become a traditional birthday and Christmas gift from them. I love it.

Kind of disturbing that I knew that.  What a sickness!

My cindies are pretty dark too. This is okay - it goes with my wardrobe and I already have whiskey/ravello - but I'm thinking that due to demand for lighter colors somebody might have decided to make cigar a little darker so that they could use a wider range of hides... maybe, maybe maybe...

How's this example of #8 variation? The Wolverine 1000 Mile 721 LTD (A&E #8) vs the newer dark #8 on these newer PT boots.

AF53 is an excellent boot.
