    Yes, it very much is Alden world problems. When I first got hooked I was lusting over the Leffot 8 tanker & color 8 / antique edges was somewhat rare, but lately it seems like all color 8 makeups are with antique edging. I guess we just want what we can't have :)

    BTW, it's more like 36-48 months for those LS Pitt boots

    Black is best!!

    Seriously I think the dark upper plus light welt is some kind of crazy Viberg inspired fad that will eventually pass. It's kind of at critical mass now. I think if color 8 weren't so dark these days it would look a little better. I mean, they still look awesome, but maybe a bit too much contrast for my taste, especially on dressier boots.

    So how do you gents feel about the newer crop of (very dark) cigar with antique edging? I can't imagine cigar with black edges.
