    Is it just me, or are fewer and fewer color 8 boots being made with dark edges and on leather soles?

    Just another passing fad.

    It will all come around again.

    I like the antique with #8, just not as much as black.

    Also, I would rather have a leather sole with Topy's than commando or crepe.

    But, I guess I am just an old fogey.

    I was blown away by the antique edge with color 8 combos when first getting into Alden and now I am drawn to the black edge. I do still love my Leffot tankers and I think it's because its still a bit darker of an antique edge and the flat welt keeps the color to a minimum compared to a storm welt.

    I actually would love to get pair of plaza last cap toe boots on double leather in 2016. Maybe all eyelets though. No clue if anyone is making such a beast at the moment.

    Lovely collection sir. Do you find that you get much use out of the tankers and Plaza Dr. Jones boots.
    I have booth as well and find my tankers get the majority of wear.

    I have the exact Plaza color 8 boots in the pic. They are one of my favorite pair of boots, regardless of maker. :nodding:

    Great, diverse collection. Some classics mixed with some "exotic" make-ups. Interesting to see the color variation across some, which I assume is somewhat due to age and wear, but also vintage.

    Maiden voyage for my new 9015s. I chose a suit just to wear them. My footwear choice now dictates my wardrobe choice

    Love the Grain/Ocho Saddle shoe Don. They look good with your argyles and herringbone slacks.


    Color 8 and Black is classic and will never go out of style. Those are an amazing looking pair of boots.


    Nice looking collection of Color 8 DV, nice balance there.


    Very nice Buz! Looking good in your Whiskey. I am rocking my rain gear this week here, so no Whiskey today... :-(


    Your Grains are looking very nice. Great with those Brass Eyelets.


    Joel, your Whiskey Wingtip Boots are looking superb. Good luck with those!

    Henry, your 9015 is looking classic and beautiful already. Enjoy them, they have a great color and should take good care of you, especially when you mean business.

    ,My Frans Boone #8 CT Boot with brass eyelets on Grant last landed today. I've not tried on yet, but know they fit.
    Nice medium eggplant color #8...I'm very pleased. In addition no issues with fees from UPS. Sing here and that's it!

    All I need to complete my shell cordovan Cap Toe boot collection is Whiskey and Black. Not including a unicorn #4 in big foot size.

    Nice posts lately with excellent make ups lately!
