    Nice.

    Something I've always been unsure about . . . does Alden ever do anything in Color 8 CXL? I see lots of colors labeled "brown" and "dark brown" but especially in that light those look kind of Color 8-y to me.

    Rancourt has Color 8 and I know Alden does the dyeing, so such an animal does exist.

    Brown CXL is quite red in my experience. I don't believe that Alden dyes their own CXL, though.

    Yes they do. I believe they just call it burgundy. I had these for a while.

    If you came up with this specimen by merely messing around, I can only imagine what you would create if you got serious about it. :D

    Well done!! :thumbs-up:

    I agree! That's a really nice just messing around with it specimen. I too would like to see what blue collar could make if he quit messing around and gave it 100% effort!

    See Ya,
    Steve

    Thanks guys. Half way through this case i wanted to change a few things. Some detailing, two straps, external pocket on the back side for a magazine or newspaper. The next one for sure. I'll use Wickett and Craig bridle on the next one.

    without reviewing your business plan, I would be unable to comment about it. Do you have a back up generator for the greenhouse?.
