    I just hit Tourneau to do some recon never to buy. I ignore the sales people and look at the few watches I'm interested in. I kicked the watch habit a few years ago
    but I've been eyeing a Tudor Heritage Chrono. No Tudor dealers in my neck of the woods. I'll give Wempe a try first.

    Sorry to disappoint, but they're shoes. From Unionmade. A boot version would be awesome though.

    Unionmade has just restocked the Halleck, stoneman and kirkwood in color 8 for all those that are interested.

    Looks like they changed from antique to black edging on this run.

    I just got a pair of Helleck from a fellow member. I believe the commando soled version always had black edge, the leather soled version has the antique

    Wonderful boots! I'm typically not a huge fan of an antique edge with color 8 but it really works well with the tankers.
    I'd jump on a pair but I already have a some with a black edge.

    Would color 8 Aldens such as the unionmade ones substitute for black in a wardrobe or does color simply take the place of brown shoes? I've already got a pair of brown kudu Alden boots and had been looking for a black boot to add some versatility.

    If color 8 can do the same job, I may shift to looking at them instead.....

    If anything color 8 is more versatile than black and can be paired easier with a broader wardrobe imo. I do like black shell, although I don't have anything in it yet. I think it also depends on what else you have in rotation.

    I have similar question. Can color 8 be paired with a black suit? It seems a bit strange combo but I really do not want to buy black shoes unless I have to.
