    Thanks, I agree 100%!
    I do not know 100%, but I believe given them more limited quantities of hides being available, both Horween and Alden are being conservative with their dyes and going slightly darker. I again don't know. It does vary batch to batch of course.
    Lovely.
    Darkens them a bit but they look much happier.
    Looking top notch in your Color 8 NSTs. For a minute I swore they were Cigars.
    Sorry to hear, they do look nice for what It's worth, but I always vote Shell.
    Indeed you did! And they are looking superb!
    Horrible DV, they just look horrible. Drop off at my house tomorrow with a tongue pad please. For your sake.
    Not sure Indy would have taken the Subway, but they look great!
    Looks lovely three Ben regardless and your boots look perfect.
    You are going to have double brushing duty tonight, but you are looking good! -Mike

    Forgivable offense. There's not much fresh oxygen on planes. Makes your brain do funny things. :D

    I even feel weird typing this, but I had the tobacco reverse Greenwich and that was the only Alden boot that I wish had speedhooks. Unlike my shell all eye boots where I only had to unlace the top eyelet to get the boots on and off...I have to unlace at least 4 to get the Greenwich on and off.
